Beyond is a independently published book focusing on expanding you worldview. The book consists of eleven stories about the power of the human being, mind and heart, ranging in scale from one person to an entire country. Beyond: Expanding our Ideas of What is Possible, will take you on a ride through the lives of people you will never forget, and then into yourself to realize your own true potential to go beyond limitations and into the expanding realm of possibility. Written and published by me, the author, and also coincidentally a fourteen year old girl.

I might do one, though on principle I honestly don't like them very much. Call me old fashioned, but I like real books.
If there is enough interest, though, I will definitely consider it.

I can understand that. Though I own a Nook Color and use it frequently, there is something to be said for holding a physical copy in your hand and flipping through the pages.
That said, eBooks is a big market now. If you are interested in expanding you market reach, definitely consider it. But, if you are merely interested in having your own work at your fingertips, and if you sell a few copies here and there, no big deal! That's where I am right now. If I sell a bunch, cool. But, I'm mostly happy seeing my work in print and able to make it easily availble for friends and family.
You gotta make yourself happy first and foremost!

It is a nice cover. Where is the image from?
The book's title does not describe the contents, if your first example is a guide to the rest. For a start, that's a very much published story, and a very old one, that no one can say the gist of it is possible or not, or even really true! (Apparently it is not). Look up what has been published about it and the many theories and research about it. http://aolsearch.aol.co.uk/aol/search?s_it=sb_uk&q
I think that particular mystery only shows how scathing anthropologists etc., were (note - were) about the knowledge our ancestors had.
Steampunk? Pah! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antikythera_mechanism
Good effort, though, for some one aged 14, not that your age matters to buyers. It does need a bit of fiddling with however.
