Hey Jim2! Will is working hard on getting The Crimson Vault ready for paperback. He has been constantly editing it and is working on adding some neat details into the new version of the book. He hasn't given a time frame yet, but I imagine he will have the paperback ready in the next couple of weeks. It will depend on how long it takes for the paperback process to go through. If I hear more i'll make sure to let you know. He will probably inform everyone on his blog www.willwight.com as well or through his facebook page. In regards to a hardback, I wouldn't expect a hardback until he has finished his third novel, City of Light. I imagine he would like to wrap all three books into one big hardcover edition if there is enough demand for it, but we will see. Have a great day!
