"Large Print" edition of SHADES coming soon!

Mr. KK here. This is a quick note to let you know that we’ve just finished reformatting Shades of the Past for distribution as a LARGE PRINT trade paperback book. We’ve adhered to the guidelines provided by the National Association for the Visually Handicapped (N.A.V.H.) and have set the 6” x9” book in 16 point Book Antiqua typeface with generous leading (space between lines). It is now in the approval process with Createspace and will be available in a day or two on Amazon. It will be distributed via Createspace’s Expanded Distribution channels and thus available to other booksellers and libraries, as well.

Below is the new cover flat (the flat is 9.25” tall by 13.5” wide – 1/8” will be trimmed off of every edge, which will make the final size 9” tall by 13.25” wide and the book will be 1.25” thick). Createspace will add the UPC bar code label to the flat in the blank space on the back cover.

Additionally, here’s a screen capture of sample pages from Microsoft Word. Please keep in mind that each page is 6” x 9”.
