About the project
We converted this one to a standard reflowing epub and mobi from the Word document supplied. The cover design was done by us here at Australian eBook Publisher, using colours that the customer liked and we wanted it to have a nice, edgy feel whilst still conveying the "over sixty" theme of the book. We also applied our Ebook Designer's Touch™ to the manuscript, applying some headings and fonts that suited the cover design. It has been a pleasure to work with Mary and we hope to do more work for her in the future.
The other day, when I was having a rant about traffic, the Internet and the other frustrations in life my husband said: “Why don’t you write it down and send it into the newspaper or somewhere else.” Of course he really meant, ‘tell someone who cares’ but that’s okay. I decided to take his suggestion and I feel much better. Here it is. In “Now that I am Sixty”, A. Mary Smith takes a humorous look at the complexities and challenges of 21st century life for ageing women baby boomers. Between not being able to get the car out of a parking lot, to customer disservice call centres, to ridiculous electronic forms, passwords and security questions—life is not easy these days! Still, with friends, family, travel and a little bit of free time it is very good! “Now that I am Sixty” will show you that you are not alone in your frustrations—and hopefully provide a few wry smiles, the odd guffaw and some belly laughs.
