The Virtual Book Fair with Pen Coed Publishing MAY 2020

As the lockdown continues, there are a lot of book fairs that will not go ahead for some time. Pen Coed Publishing had plans to be present at Llandeilo and Carmarthen Book Fairs in Wales for instance, as they have done before, but they are cancelled for now.

So, how to show you the beautiful selection of books without face-to-face mingling? 

Their new Virtual Book Fair video is now available as a link on the Home page of this site and Pen Coed Publishing website.

The table is set out as it would be for a normal Book Fair, with examples from the range of books available. The Virtual Book Fair video presents all the titles, each one described in detail by me. If you are interested in arts and crafts, there are several titles available. The first one I wrote and published in 2012 was “Peg Loom Weaving: all you need to know to get started”, starting from the basics with lots of ideas and projects to try – still popular through Amazon as it is one of the main books on peg looms. There is a companion book recently published on “Felt Making: all you need to know to get started”. The Book Fair video has a great example of a large felted panel in the background hopefully to inspire you to have a go at a new craft.

You will already have heard of my book about prisoners of war during WWII “Before Hiroshima: Forgotten Prisoners of War in Japan, Burma and the Far East”. Definitely an important story to tell as 2020 is the 75th anniversary of the end of the war in the Far East. There is a free pdf download on the Pen Coed Publishing website with a short summary of the book, so worth having a look.

Of course, there is my illustrated book “Walking Wales: The Art Lover’s Guide to Wye Valley Way”. Now is definitely the time to think about planning a long-distance walk when we are allowed out! 

The link for the video is on the home page of www.pencoedpublishing.co.uk so please have a look and ‘like’ the Facebook page at www.facebook.com/jackiepencoed to keep up to date with new titles coming out later this year.

Events from the last part of 2019

This is where you can find out what is happening in the near future, some of it as an event you can attend or details of what to look out for as a new book title or a Review. As you can see, this is me preparing for my Charity Trek - and at the end of the Wye Valley Walk - for Breast Cancer Now

2nd - 3rd November 2019 - we had a stand at the Aberaeron Book Festival, Memorial Hall, Aberaeron which was a great success. This was the second year for the Book Festival and plans are already underway for next year's event. It was a good opportunity to pop in and say hello and see all the books currently available - lovely to chat with all our visitors. 

11.00am on Sunday 3rd November - the free workshop on Travel Writing at the Book Festival went extremely well - contact Gwisgo Bookworm (book shop in Aberaeron or on their website) to keep in touch about their future events.

4th November 2019 - talk at 3.30pm at The Old College, Aberystwyth (near the pier) as part of Aberystwyth University's 100 year celebrations. It looked at the significant legacy of the Davies Sisters of Llandinam (Gwendoline and Margaret ) who bought and donated the impressive collection of 'modern' art to the Welsh People now housed at National Museum of Wales in Cardiff. It was even more interesting to hear from members of the audience who had personal experience of the art works, Gregynog mansion,  plus stories about their lives.

16th November 2019 - we have a stand at the Aberaeron Community Market in the British Legion club, and this time I will be demonstrating Peg Loom Weaving - great gift of a peg loom and the Book - so come and see how it works. Open from 10.00-4.00, and demonstration around 11.00am plus 2.30pm

22nd November 2019 - get your weekend off to a great start with a talk about Walking Wales and the Wye Valley, planning a long-distance walk, and a chance to get a signed copy of the book. Try the locally distilled Gin or a soft drink. The Welsh Sisters Shop, Manchester House, New Quay 5.30pm

New Projects

Two major projects in progress at the moment, the first is a major piece of work to complete by January 2020 and the second is a 2-part series on visiting Wales.

1.Strategies for targeting the mature travel sector

This is a new title aimed at those involved in Tourism and Travel, whether as students of the subject or tour operators and providers of services to the travel sector.

It takes a closer look at the growing group of mature travelers (US spelling for this book). Lots of statistics, but the aim is to identify existing and potential new strategies that tour operators and providers need to consider.

How do we define “mature”/ what are they looking for/ and how do they make the final decision? Publication in Spring 2020 by New York publisher BEP (Business Expert Press), distributing to US universities and general outlets worldwide.

If you would like to register an interest in ordering the book when published (no payment yet) then please complete the Contact Us form so that I can make sure you are the first to know!

2. Meander Through Wales – 1st book South & West Wales: 2nd book North Wales

The perfect way to explore Wales and find all the fascinating features off the main tourist routes is to meander via bus, train and on foot.

All the routes and places featured have been visited by us, including longer walks on the Wye Valley Way from Chepstow up to Plynlimon, Llangollen Canal, and Ceredigion coastal path.

Plenty of images that capture the magic and mystery of Wales.

Book 1 on South and West Wales is ready for publication, due in 2020. As before, if you would like to register an interest in ordering the book when published (no payment yet) then please complete the Contact Us form so that I can make sure you are the first to know!

There are always other ideas for the future including:

• My debut Novel “No Harm Done” – yes, really!

• A memoir/ travel book “Don’t Puke on the Turtle

• Updating the original titles on Risk Management especially for small firms (BEP interested in commissioning this)

• Just had the new title “Felt making – all you need to know to get started” from the printers so it is now available from www.pencoedpublishing.co.uk and www.amaon.co.uk - see more details on the Titles page.

Talk about preparing, writing and publishing a book about walking the Wye Valley Way - 136 miles over 15 days
