Did you know that the right kind of cover and presentation can increase the sales of books? And that portraying ebooks as traditional books gives potential readers a better understanding of your work?

These marketing-inspired ideas pushed me to release a new product based on previous designs. It should come as a blessing for a busy book designer or book author #design #bookcover #bookcoverdesign #bookcoverdesigner

Back-to-school preparations, with all of the anxiety and excitement that they bring, are in full swing. And yet, I can't resist taking a few moments to look back with gratitude at some scenes from an extraordinary summer.

The Alhambra casts a magic spell. #alhambrapalace   #spaintravel  
Who can resist the spell of the Alhambra? Painters, writers, poets and kings have succumbed to its magic.

Bread, cheese and Madrid. A delicious combination!  #madrid   #travel   #spaintravel  
Having a bakery next door is a wonderful -- and dangerous -- thing. I'm staying in a quaint flat with three balconies in the heart of Madrid. Just outside the building is a bakery.

It is easier to appreciate a city when you have the chance to live like a local. #madrid   #madridtravel   #spaintravel  
To appreciate what it is like living in a European capital, consider renting a flat in an area inhabited by locals.

To recover from jet lag, travelers are told venture outdoors. And so, after arriving in Spain, I strolled around Algete, a Madrid suburb with a complicated past.
