Candy Jar Books is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a Marketing Grant from the Welsh Books Council.

New title A Personal Portrait of the Royal Family by Colin Edwards features never-before-seen photographs of members of the royal family including Lady Diana and The Queen Mother. Candy Jar is to receive a marketing grant that will help publicise the book, in the hope that it will reach a wider audience and see increased in sales.

In A Personal Portrait of The Royal Family, Colin shares his experiences through a series of photographs. His style is a far cry from typical paparazzi snapshots, as he captures a natural, softer side of the Royal Family. These pictures are interspersed with delightful anecdotes in which he recalls his personal experiences with the Royal family. These heart-felt moments include the first time Diana, Princess of Wales, addressed him by name, and his delight at The Queen Mother attending one of his photography exhibitions.

A Personal Portrait... will be released Summer 2014 and we look forward to working alongside the Welsh Books Council as they support us in this exciting project.

The Welsh Books Council is a national body, funded by the Welsh Government, which provides a focus for the publishing industry in Wales. It provides a number of specialist services (in the fields of editing, design, marketing and distribution) with a view to improving standards of book production and publication in both Welsh and English. It also distributes grants to publishers. The Books Council actively promotes reading and literacy in Wales.
