Finally got one of these. Been publishing on Amazon/Kindle for a year now,
with a little bit of success.

I think eBooks are the wave of the future. And I think it's possible to make
some cash publishing on them. No editor or dwindling magazine sales to worry
about. Just straight to the consumer.

Cool looking gadget Z!! Can they handle colour graphics? Might be a good way of getting an art book out there Smile

No color. They are eInk so the display is a lot more like a book (and works great
in full sunlight).

The iPad is color, and would work great for Artwork.

Back to the drawing board as they say! LOL
Actually, when I've got Goblins and Galaxies done (3 tracks left to record, when I've written them!) I have an idea for a book on fractal art. There's a site called Blurb.co.uk which helps you make and publish books for a very reasonable price (£6.95 for a 7" x 7" and £10.95 for a 10" x 8" 80 pages)
With the new 3D Mandelbulb fractal software I've got I can produce Hi-Res images very quickly!

The iPad might work better for you GinN. The eInk display on the kindle is a
lot more like paper (works in direct sunlight, black and white, no flashing cursor).

On the plus side, it has built in text-to-speech, so you can have it read to you.
And you can also change the font size to make it easier to read.

anything that isn't a book and on a screen works for me. though i can read mags just fine as they are more random in color and print. i think it might be that i'm looking forward at a larger area and not having to flip pages that really makes the difference. i read so much faster and typing is faster then writting, because i get cramped hands...computers are like my angel... Cool the lady i work for has been working on an ebook too. she's really into fantacy. i'd like to write one sometime too. but more on life etc. Very Happy
