"Exploring Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way" to be re-published as an eBook #215

Coming soon to an on-line bookstore near you!
It has taken a while but I have finally got the go ahead to take my Wild Atlantic Way book and republish it. It was launched in June 2014, but was out of print by the end of that year. My publisher has decided not to reprint it (not enough orders/cost of print), and has finally agreed to let me take over the text for republishing.

I plan to re-release the book through Amazon Createspace for print versions, though I don't expect this to yield much in the way of sales. The estimated cost to buy (with no royalties for me) will be about €20 + postage & packaging - way too expensive for a book of this type. But I also plan to release it as an eBook through Kindle Direct Publishing - I have better hopes for this. There will be quite a bit of work for me to republish - mostly in formatting the text and photos. I plan to replace 2-3 of the photos, but make no changes to the text apart from two typos. At least I do not have to rewrite or add in new sections. Work will start on this in the next week or so - I'd love to get it out before the end of June. Watch this space!
