It’s here. The new book’s cover.

Five weeks ago many hundreds of Moodnudges readers were generous enough to vote on possible cover concepts for Nudge Your Way To Happiness, the forthcoming book.

The idea that garnered most support showed three weather symbols, progressing from a rainy day to a sunny one, so this was the one which has gone on to be refined and polished.

A huge and heartfelt thank you to everyone who had their say, and commiserations to those who favoured the alternatives, one of which could well appear on a possible Nudge Your Way to Happiness 2.

(I know, I know, let’s get the first one out first.)

Anyway, I’m delighted to say that when a printed and bound proof of the book arrived at Moodnudges HQ a few days ago, I was absolutely certain the right choice had been made made.

It’s looking super.

Here’s a picture, (appropriately) outside in the Californian sun:


Lots of people are asking about the publication date, and although I can’t give you a precise one, I can tell you it’s getting tantalisingly close.

We’ve given the proof a final, final check and I’m incredibly near to being able to give the printers the green light.

Compared to blogging (and writing emails like this one) book publishing is a much slower process, but in a world where nothing’s supposed to take more than five minutes, I find this gently reassuring, somehow.

A reminder to us both, perhaps, that now and then it’s good to take your time.

  1. Wishing you all the best and great success with the “”BABY””. I have been following your emails for a while….sometimes they help and sometimes they don’t apply to my point in life……that’s just how it is.

  2. Looks great Jon, bright, simple, very eyecatching, Im looking forward to getting myself a copy. Congratulations!

  3. Excitement obviously mounting now! Cover looks good & like the uncluttered look & colour choices which reflect the weather theme without overdoing it on calm blue.

    Is there a launch event planned & wondering if you’ve thought of live streaming it maybe using something simple like periscope? Then lots of us could join in & share the moment & share it on social media to get the news out?

  4. Congratulations. Love the cover format, I often remember the weather forecast when I wake up under a black cloud and no sign of sunshine, that moods are just temporary weather fronts.
    Thank you for all your positive nudges which really do really give a different view of life.

  5. It looks Great!!! Love everything about it. Wishing you all the best and thanking you for your messages that I always look forward to.

  6. Jon – congratulations on this milestone! The cover looks great (and very impressive to have Seth Godin commenting on your work). Looking forward to reading it.

  7. Well done Jon all that hard work you’ve put in looks well worth the effort.
    Think the cover looks very professional.
    It looks so bright and sunny a good feel “cover” to have around expecially on a dull day.

  8. Fabulous, Jon. Ve ve excited to see it ‘in the flesh’ very soon!
    I’ve just been under a Liddle Black Cloud for a few weeks and am so pleased to be up in the sunshine once again
    Great work and well done!

  9. Congratulations Jon!
    They say ‘we all have a book in us’ and in your case here is the proof!
    May it achieve, ten fold what you want it to achieve and your tireless effort be rewarded.
    You are inspirational.
    I’m sure that was a very long, committed process in order to get this far and you have seen it through to this point. Heaps of sales to go…………….?
    I am so pleased for you. Well done!
