Reader Question… Solved! What’s going on with Katherine Allred’s book What Price Paradise?


Camille KNOWS what book she’s looking for, but wants to know why she can’t purchase it…

She asks:

Hi, Maryse!

I love Reader Questions and I am hoping that you can help me with a mystery I am curious about.

I am so eager to read Katherine Allred’s book What Price Paradise, but it is really hard to find any copies.

I haven’t seen a digital version online (admittedly, I only have only read Kindle and Apple digital books, so other formats are a bit foreign to me), and the print copies I have come across are very expensive (as in, almost 200$!!).  I’m even struggling to have a copy interlibrary loaned to my local branch for a variety of reasons.

So, here is the mystery I am seeking your help with:

  1. why has this book essentially disappeared?
  2. Why isn’t it in a digital format?
  3. And do you have any ideas about ways I could get my hands on a copy that I haven’t thought of yet?

Thank you in advance for any guidance you and the blog readers may be able to offer up!

Love reading your blog!

That is a GREAT question. I know the same thing happened for awhile to her other book that we LOVED so much, “The Sweet Gum Tree” -in fact here is my 4.5 star review (and it has since been republished – in fact I think she now SELF publishes it – and has a new cover and everything… and it’s available as an ebook now too.

So maybe this one is changing publishers? Maybe she will self publish it, too? I will investigate!! 😀

Does anyone else have an idea?

Maryse: Okay here’s what I found so far (mind you, these updates were from a few years ago) but this seems like it’s something in the works. All of this is from the author’s Facebook page. She says:

August 1, 2017 – #amediting What Price, Paradise this time. Figured I’d better get a jump on it since it might take me a while.

Katherine Allred, Author Hi. At this point I have no idea when it will be available. Health problems (mine and hubby’s) has put a halt on just about everything book related. I’m hoping 2020 will be a better year, but we’ll have to wait and see. 43w ago)

Katherine Allred, Author Can’t give you a date, but I’m working on it. …just editing and fixing some things I didn’t like in the first version.

Katherine Allred, Author At the moment it’s not available. The publisher closed its doors and I have the rights back. I hope to republish it again, but my health problems and hubby’s keep getting in the way.
