I have this lovely little book my boy and I wrote called The Eleven-Year-Old's Guide to Linux.  Any Ideas for letting the people who need this book know about this book?

Thanks for the feedback. Yes, I do like to "freshen up." I change my living room colors as well. Right now I am running Sage green and Navy Blue. Lol. Here is the Book Trailer I did on YouTube. I used my standby resource "Animoto." I also have this posted on the "Author Page" on Amazon.

I prefer the new cover as well, Ericka.

Hi Ericka,

I really like the new book cover!  It is eye catching and the typography looks more professional.  :)

Hi Everyone, here is the updated book cover for one of my books on Amazon. Which one do you like the best?

Hi Tony:

Here is a resource for the mock-up for a tablet, smart phone or PC.

I started listening to your podcast about two years back just to be a better husband and have really enjoyed watching the brand you and Alisa have developed. I get the emails and my wife and I share the fun questions a few times a week before bed.

Now in an attempt to be a better business person, I find you again.  

Promise I am not a stalker. Ha.

I love the new cover photo, one small thing I did notice and I've not seen commented on is that the couple aren't wearing rings.

I didn't think that quite fit.  

I'm sure it's possible they a very happily married couple and took them off just before climbing under the sheets for another day of the challenge...

Knowing your ministry and the book's subtitle, thought that visual might be a big deal to include.

Maybe a little Photoshop?

Thanks Ericka. One thing I did learn is that you cannot have an Amazon logo/image on the cover for Createspace. You can for Kindle though.
