Thanksgiving was great! The loss of the Oregon State Beavers to the Oregon Ducks was horrible, but now I can concentrate on my writing. In particular, some of my prep for marketing my Civil War book, but even more interesting to me at the moment is the completion of my Seashells of the Caribbean book. The interactive e-book format intrigues me along with all of the macro-photography. The book is up to 300 pages of correlated photos with descriptions of anatomy and collecting tips all linked to internet sites that expand the possibilities of the book almost beyond limits. This will be the future of many hobby books, the ability to have them on your laptop, I-pad or e-reader and take them out into the field as you do your own collecting and photography. I only hope they make a really waterproof laptop soon, I’d love to be able to take one when I go diving!
