Wow. Nice cover. Invokes thoughts of mysticism and wonder. I hope that was your intention.

I'd like to see a preview.

But for what I can see, good work!

I, too, wish there was a preview.

Very interesting indeed. Are you considering an eBook?

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! :smileyhappy:

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=the%20Sirius%20Mystery

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        :smileyhappy:

Good effort, though, for some one aged 14, not that your age matters to buyers. It does need a bit of fiddling with however.

She's a bit young to consider something "old fashioned"!
