Moon Dominican Republic Has A Book Cover and Is on Pre-Sale

Here it is: the final book cover for my first edition of Moon Dominican Republic for Moon Travel Guides.

I’m thrilled that one of my photographs was selected, and even more delighted that it shows a scene from Puerto Plata, one of my favorite areas of the DR.

The image shows a couple of motorbikes parked along the city’s Malecon or waterfront boulevard, while its owners take a dip in the Atlantic sea, the breeze blowing and waves crashing nearby. A golden beach sits below.

For those who missed the other exciting news on Facebook, this edition will be printed in full color. From the front section to the back, the book will be illustrated and you’ll have a clear idea of the various regions, hotels, food and more.

Yesterday was my official publisher deadline and I submitted the full manuscript–a great feeling that I celebrated full circle in Santo Domingo, where I started my full time rounds last year.

Over the next couple of months, my editor and I will be going through several rounds of revisions, as first editions require more work and attention.

But we’re half way there. And the best part is that you can now pre-order your copy of Moon Dominican Republic on Amazon. 

There’s more to come from me on the DR — stay tuned. Thanks for following me on an incredible journey this past year.
