The Damage Done, Now in Paperback


When I decided to re-release my debut novel, THE DAMAGE DONE, I set October 6th as the release date. It didn’t seem unrealistic — I had the files, and my cover designer was doing great work. The eBook release happened as I’d planned, with a perfect launch on Apple Books and Kindle. With Kobo and Nook — released via Ingram — it’s been a bumpier ride. (Just today, October 29th, Ingram got back to be about an issue I’d raised on October 4th. No resolution to the issue, though. It’s a process!)

Getting the paperback out has been even more of a minefield. I opted to print it with Ingram, because gives independent bookstores easy access to it. Unfortunately, there’s been nothing easy about the process, even with the files and a great cover in hand. I’m thrilled to announce that, in spite of all the obstacles, THE DAMAGE DONE is back in print in paperback! It’s literally available everywhere, and it’s a thrill to see it back in the catalog at Houston’s Murder by the Book, Denver’s Tattered Cover, New York’s Kew & Willow, Austin’s BookPeople, Pasadena’s Vroman’s Bookstore, and Scottsdale’s Poisoned Pen. If you want to shop local, IndieBound can help. (And yes, the book’s on Amazon, too.)

If you pick up a copy and want a signed bookplate for it, just let me know! Email me at and I’ll send that out. Stay tuned for an event to celebrate Lily Moore’s tenth anniversary, and her new lease on life.
