I read Chris Eboch's review in the SCBWI Bulletin, about the "Kindle Kids's Book Creator,"---it only enforced my delight in using I-BOOK AUTHOR to build my I-Books. From what I've read the Kindle version had some drawbacks. Anyway, I'm a Mac lover. The love of the Mac has been with me forever. I've got I-Book Author software. I created two books so far with the program. The Myth of Cyber City--A journey into cyberspace, into the phenomena of Information Art--where cyber robots build mysterious complex structure--on the back roads of Cyber City.
A Blueprint in the Wind. A memory book designed for my brother, Tom Parisi. My brother's music and his illustrations are in that book and live on in cyberspace.
Having produced two books, I decided to add another. The Myth of Orpheus. I am editing the text. I've got the illustrations. The music for my book is forthcoming. The I-Book is the perfect vehicle for digital art and music. Oh, I did show my art to an agent, but she said, something like, "I want traditional drawings."
So that's my history of using I-Book Author. I went the I-Book route.
