Spider Books has just published ‘Exporting Made Easy– A Practical Guide: Selling Services and Products Overseas Through Agents and Distributors (including the Legal Bits!)‘, a short business book that introduces the process for exporting goods and services.
Aimed at UK SMEs, but useful in other countries too, the book is designed for businesses wanting to get started in exporting.
The authors Simon Bedford and Giles Dixon are both experts in the field with many years experience supporting businesses to expand into new territories.

It has some disadvantages – it uses Flash which can be a bit slow to load and not all browsers have a Flash player built in – but when it comes to an easy way to make a simple, colourful website, its fab.

There is a free version and its very cheap and easy to manage larger sites or more of them. You can buy your domain names in there as well, and this is also easier to understand than the usual domain name registration and hosting websites. basically you can get your site built and run very easily.
If you still find it a hassle I can build and manage your site as I do for clients such as such as actress Angeles Sorribas.

Through the Looking Glass book reviews website has recently relaunched with a logo I designed for the site’s owner Marya Jensen-Gruber. She keeps an amazing record of children’s book reviews and also offers a writing review service for budding authors.
I made a series of logos of which she has chosen one and blended it with the site’s colour scheme.
