Alcatraz – Journey to the Island

Available on the iBookStore, Alcatraz – Journey to the Island is a photo essay and historical commentary of America’s most famous prison—Alcatraz. The video below is the media intro of the enhanced eBook. Billed as “Inescapable,” notorious prisoners and 14 different escape attempts were part of the lore of the island. Even shutting it down did nothing to quell the mystery of Alcatraz, as it then became a rallying point for Native Americans to cry out against the poor treatment and lack of respect that the government had for their plight.
Alcatraz is more than a place. It has been a symbol of extreme punishment and loss of rights, an “end-of-the-line” destination filled with despair, yet a symbol of hope, not only to Native Americans, but also in films and to many generations of Americans and citizens throughout the world.

Available now on iTunes, you can get a free sample and order it HERE:

This Multi-Touch eBook reveals what it is like to go visit the island and encourages you to consider your own journey whenever you may be close to San Francisco. Alcatraz is a terrific place to visit and will be one of your most memorable experiences. The National Park Service has partnered with an excellent concessionaire in Alcatraz Cruises to make your stopover memorable. Tours are available daily, but you must have reservations in advance and in the summer, it is better to make them days in advance in order to insure a seat. You can only enter the island and the tour via Alcatraz Cruises ferries, however, you may circle the island with other excursion packages. This is an exciting display of fine photography combined with detailed information about the history of Alcatraz.


Presenting “Little Leaf”

This wonderful “Read Aloud” children’s book is a tale of a young leaf as it strives to grow up and accomplish something in its life. Told as a parable, it seems that being preoccupied with achieving “more” pervades even the world of Nature.

Luckily, Little Leaf has someone wise who patiently guides it along a path to maturity and understanding until finally, it realizes how amazing it’s tiny life has been as it finds fulfillment and gratitude.

Now available at the Apple iBookstore for the iPad on sale  HERE!

Kindle and iBookstore

The best way to order our books is to click on the listing of the book in which you are interested. This will take you to both a description of the title and at the bottom, a link to where it is available.

In answer to some reader questions, we want to explain that right now, we are presenting books either in Kindle or ePub format. Some books are on both format, some on one, depending on the design of each book. W also plan to publish for the Barnes & Noble Nook, but are not sure exactly when.


We Launched iPub-Press on Earth Day!

Why EARTH DAY? Because the development of eBooks is an example of how modern technology can assist moving towards “zero carbon footprint” activities and spread “how-to” knowledge, entertainment and insight through the now electronic word. It has become much more affordable to publish books and other information in an accessible and low-environmental impact package. WE SAVE TREES! We don’t need trucks to ship inventory, nor warehouses to store or move the product. There is nothing that needs recycling. (Maybe eventually an eReader, but they still are new.) This is definitely the Wave of the Future — Available NOW!

On Earth Day, we reflected that maybe the world can be better than it has been for a while. We publish Words that Entertain, Educate and Enlighten!  We hope that some of our books will provide a pause to reflect that maybe there is still Hope for mankind. When was the last time you got excited enough too feel like that?

44 Years in the Making!

Science Fiction with Faith in the Future!
This is a refreshing vision of a world where most of the world’s problems have been solved through advanced technology and human effort. Everything, however,  is not as it seems. Eco-terrorists are attempting to wrest control of the planets by covert use of a Time/Warp Space Drive to advance their cause.
Fifeteen-year-old Raymond Sunstorm and his illustrious astrophysicist dad are kidnapped to complete the takeover despite being carefully guarded by powerful forces of the Galactic Solar Patrol.
Using a brilliant strategy, Ray and his dad dramatically avert the coup and live to tell the Planets about their incredible adventure.
Available NOW on Kindle Direct Publishing, for all Kindle platforms.
