An easy case of the hardcover

Usually, about a year after a book is published in hardcover, the paperback edition is released.  My book Search Inside Yourself has been out almost a year, and still there is no word of an upcoming paperback edition.  Why?  Is there a global conspiracy preventing its release?

No, there isn't.  Well, there is probably a global conspiracy somewhere (hey, just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not after you), but that's not why the paperback is delayed.  Instead, the reason for the delay is continued strong sales.  My publishers tell me the book is still selling so well that they decided to keep it in hardcover a little longer.  The new release date for the paperback is 5 Nov 2013.  They assure me that very few books continue to sell so well that they'd still be published in hardcover after a year, so it's all good. 

Besides, hardcover books make better paperweights and table legs.

Jokes aside, the only reason the book is still selling so well is because of you, my readers.  As usual, I could never have done this without you.  Thank you!
