YA Eco Mysteries, Memoirs, Novels & Travel
Boris and I are absolutely thrilled about an upcoming trip to shoot video footage of biologists reintroducing the endangered Lampmussel (Lampsilis virescens) into Bear Creek, a tributary of the Tennessee River, to save the species from extinction. We plan to use these videos in our Enhanced Print Book, The Adventures of The Sizzling Six: The Living Treasure, young adult eco mystery series. Over 1,000 cultured mussels, raised at the Alabama Aquatic Biodiversity Center, will be released on October 6, 2011 and we will be there to record it. “We’re excited to be part of saving what is truly one of the rarest species in the United States,” said Dr. Paul Johnson, Program Supervisor. Stay posted for more about our adventure and a sneak preview of the actual videos in about ten days!
If statistics are to be believed, Mobile phones are becoming so ubiquitous that only 9% of American teens would be willing to go without their cell phones for 24 hours and the average child spends an hour and a half texting each day. So can we boost teen reading with mobile devices? We certainly think they can!
We’ve harnessed the power of mobile devices to integrate our printed books with video clips to “magically” transport the readers from the words on the printed page to let readers see and hear what the characters in the story are seeing and hearing. HOW?? Just watch the two-minute video on HOME page.
And please help to distribute these books FREE to schools, libraries and organizations of your choice. In addition you will receive great rewards. HOW?
