A New Look for Amanda Travels

Posted on: September 23, 2016

Central Avenue Publishing

On October 1, we’ll release the fifth book in the Amanda Travels series by Vancouver author, Darlene Foster: Amanda on the Danube – The Sounds of Music. In this fun travel adventure series, 12-year-old Canadian girl, Amanda Ross and her best friend, Leah, find themselves in different countries always in the middle of a mysterious adventure.

They’re a perfect read for kids 8-12 as they learn about new cultures and countries, all while having some fun.

Previously the book covers had a kind of collage look to them, but we’ve redesigned all of them to make them a little more current.

To remind you, here are the old covers:

Hopefully you like the new look. Throughout October, we’ll have lots of giveaways and other events happening. Stay tuned!

Wishing you all the best with your new Amanda book, Darlene! It’s always SO exciting when a new book comes out. I really like the new look to the covers. You must be excited to be going back to Vancouver for your launch!

I am very excited about these covers and the book launch in Vancouver. I will also be doing a presentation at the Medicine Hat Library, the library I frequented as a child and where I took my children. How cool is that!!

A great idea to repackage them, they look sumptuous. Five in the series already – many congratulations!

I am glad we decided to make the change. I know, i have to pinch myself to see if it is true that I have 5 books in the series published already!
