Bonjour 40 Paris Travel


I’ve done it. You probably have, too. I’ve Google searched my own name to see what comes up. This week, I searched Amazon under Bonjour 40: A Paris Travel log. Typing in various words and phrases from the title, I wanted to see what other items might come up. I found a plethora of fun things from teapots to paintings. So, I gathered of few of them to share.

In just a few days, there will also be one more item. A print version of Bonjour 40! Readers who bought the e-book containing nearly 40 images, begged for more. Fans without e-readers begged for print. Those who love to armchair travel holding something tangible, asked when they could get their hands on it. So, here’s the gift I’ve personally designed to bring to all of you.

With over 100 photos, plus a few extra tid-bits, this new expanded version, is an 8.5×8.5, full-color, paperback walk through the streets, markets and delights of Paris. It still has all the content and stories of the original travel log, but now, so much more.

I’m reviewing the proofs now, so stay tuned for the big launch just in time for the holidays! In the meantime, you can click on the image above and find other ways to hold Paris in your hands (my favorite is the My Duckie Paris, black bathtub rubber duckie.)

My proofing copy of Bonjour 40. It’s 132 pages of over 100 full-color photos, journal entries and more! Coming soon to Amazon!

    Absolutely wonderful. Who is doing the printing, how are your distributing? What software did you use? Obviously, I’m a bit of a wonk on this.
    Merry Christmas and all that,

    • I’m happy to share details, Greg. More to come this week, too about the interior and how the book was built. For now, a few tidbits for you (and you are far from a wonk!):
      – Page layout done (my moi) in InDesign then I submit a PDF to
      – Createspace (Amazon’s print-on demand program for self-publishing.
      – The books are printed when folks order them, and then they are shipped.
      You can check out my FB author page, and some new bookish posts will be there…
