I may be getting on in years, but there still are some things which excite me. Yesterday, it was the beep of a horn!
Yeah! I know, “small things amuse small minds”, but this was the horn of the courier’s van. And, that courier was delivering my latest order of books. Now, these were not just any old books! They were books that were fairly special to me. They were books that I had authored, been the photographer and graphic designer for, and had also been their publisher.
Not a great deal of work was required for the authoring component of these four particular books, as three of them are basically photography albums without much text. The fourth is one with which I am really pleased. I have illustrated with colour photos and graphics a heap of my favourite quotations. I have not counted the number of quotes, but the book is over one hundred pages in length. It is American Letter size, 8.5 inches X 11 inches, and each page in full colour with one or two quotations.
Below is part of the blurb I have placed on the back cover of, “Staying Positive During 2017 and Beyond – Inspirational and Other Quotes”.
“Philosophers, politicians, actors, authors and many others throughout history have said or written things that are memorable for us. Perhaps it is the clever use of word combination, or something meaningful, expressed succinctly.
In this publication I have compiled a list of some of my favourite quotations. These quotes cover many different genres including; motivation, love, family, and of course fun.
Each of these quotations I have endeavoured to make more interesting through the addition of colour graphics and/or colour photographs. All models appearing in this publication have been photographed be me, and I have also organised the layout of each page.
To my American friends reading this, I am an Aussie, and I have used Australian English throughout.”
Below is the cover of this book.
If you would like to purchase a copy of this paperback, it would be great. It has an ISBN and will be available through all major international book sellers. It is currently listed on each of Amazon’s sites. Or, you can use this site. Here is a link from where you can make a purchase.
As you can see it has a price tag of US$25.00. If you live in Australia however, it will cost you more than that. Apart from the conversion into Aussie dollars, you will have the shipping cost from the USA. This will cost close to the same cost of the book, which may make the transaction a bit expensive.
As the author, obviously I can get copies for a bit less than the retail listed price. In addition I save on the shipping cost of each individual book by ordering several at the same time. I do have multiple copies of this publication and the other three which came in the same order. If you would like a copy of the paperback from me, I normally carry a few with me in my vehicle and can let you have a copy for $30.00 Australian.
Perhaps you would like a less expensive e-book version of, “Staying Positive During 2017 and Beyond – Inspirational and Other Quotes”.
And, as of this morning there is an EPUB version which can be read on any e-reader.
I have priced the Kindle edition as low as I possibly could. It is less than US$2.00. Success through Amazon relies a lot on positive reviews. If you purchase the Kindle e-book through Amazon, I would really appreciate a review on Amazon from you. It will take only a few minutes of your time, but would be of great value to me.
The EPUB file is a bit dearer than the Kindle version, but not everyone has a Kindle reader. (They are available for free if you want one.) The EPUB version can be read with any EPUB reader. I use the Adobe EPUB Reader. You can download your free copy by clicking on the link.
How would you like both the e-book version and the paperback version for less than the price of the paperback? Well you can!
Purchase the Kindle, write a positive review, let me know, and a copy of the paperback is yours for $25.00 Aussie.
I did mention that multiple copies of four books arrived yesterday. Below are the covers of the other three.
