Gertrude 3 and 4 in Paperback

Getting a book into paperback is an expensive endeavor, and because most people prefer ebooks, the paperbacks rarely even pay for their own production (meaning, I pay to put a book into paperback, and usually, I don’t make that money back, which would be fine, if I were rich. But I’m not.)

Still! Some of you really love paperbacks and I don’t want to leave you out of the Gertrude loop. So in an effort to make everyone happy, I’ve released Gertrude 3 and 4 in one paperback. I save money. You save money. Everyone gets their Gert. I’m hoping it’s a win-win. 🙂

So now this two-books-in-one is available from Amazon or wherever books are sold.
