For those of you who read in print, just wanted to let you know that there are now large print editions of the Maggie May and Miss Fancypants mysteries and the Nosy Newfie Holiday Shorts available in both paperback and hard cover.
The hard cover version is mainly for libraries, it doesn’t have a dust jacket like you’d normally see on a hard cover, but hard cover stand up better to the wear and tear of multiple readers. (And for the record I am thrilled and delighted every time a library buys my books so never ever hesitate to read my books through a library if that’s what works best for you.)
But the paperback versions are there for anyone who likes a little bit of an easier read.
There are lots of quirks to large print books, including that all italicized text is bolded instead. Also the font used is different.
To give you an idea of the difference between the regular books and the large print ones, this is what page 1 of A Dead Man and Doggie Delights looks like in large print:
Compare that to what page 1 of A Dead Man and Doggie Delights looks like in regular print.
Clearly much easier on the eyes, even for me. But the books are a little larger in size and about 50% longer because of the size of the text which means slightly more expensive as well.
Going forward I should have large print editions available at the time of publication. Sorry they weren’t before but I just learned a new formatting software and this turned out to be a fun project that let me use what I’d learned to create these new versions.
Anyway. If that’s something you’re interested in, Amazon has the paperback version for $14.95 USD or the case-laminate hard cover version for $24.99. Barnes & Noble also has the paperback version and the hard cover version. Most stores and libraries should be able to order it for you even if they don’t have it in stock.
