Just Us Two and Chasing Rainbows sport new jackets.

Decision made! The paperback covers for Just Us Two and Chasing Rainbows were due for an update.


Why?

Some time ago, after taking a wonderful photo of two rainbows, which arched over Nerja, southern Spain, from the mountains to the sea, after a storm, I was excited to realise that I had my rainbow for Chasing Rainbows and set to work on making the cover more dynamic.
 
 
Just Us Two followed as I made the central image a full page one - not unlike the original when the first edition was published in 2009. We kept our beloved  Andorra mountains as a backdrop to our special photograph of OH and myself 'Just Us Two' with the Gold Wing. This was taken on Achill Island as we tested the water on our very first touring journey abroad. A session with Photoshop brought us together so to speak.
 
Feedback on the eBook covers was positive so bringing the paperback into line was a no-brainer.



It has made marketing the full portfolio easier and more co-ordinated.

 
 

What next?

 
  • This has led to a new video being  required. Work in progress and my task for this week.
  • Our decision to re-format the Lifelong Learning Kindle books into the Kindle text book format is opening up new and exciting possibilities.
  • As these will be new titles with a new ISBN, we are taking the opportunity to update the 'Further Reading' section on all five titles in the series
  • We can insert images and video to make it all more interactive and vibrant.
  • More importantly, the layout will be exactly the same as the print book with all the bullets, diagrams, tables etc. as they were designed to be. No need to re-do the layout or save the images with different file formats and resolution.
Exciting times.  Watch this space.
