I first published Celebrating Grandmothers, in which nearly thirty women talk about how it feels to be a grandmother, four years ago.
It was very well reviewed and bought both by grandmothers and for grandmothers. It was discovered to be an answer to that question ‘What in the world will I get my mother for Christmas this year?’.
The old cover wasn’t bad, in my view. I could show the book to people in the street, their eyes would light up and, not infrequently, they would buy. But I never felt really happy with it. There was something ‘old lady-ish’ about it.
So I went to my cover designed and she prepared a new cover, as shown above. The photo is the same, with the warm interaction between grandmother and baby, but the feeling is lighter. It is available from Amazon. The contents of the book remain unchanged.
I will be curious to see if there is any change in my sales. Do let me know what you think.
