As more and more people are turning to video, audio and interactive tools to be entertained, they seemed to be winning out over the printed word.
But one author thinks he has found a solution: combine them all.
Check out Clyde Ford’s new novel, Precious Cargo.
Ford is a writer of nautical-themed thrillers who also happens to be a former IBM software engineer. He spent the past year developing OnScene, a website that combines satellite imagery with a digital version of Precious Cargo.
Readers can browse and sample pages on the site and click on highlighted locations, which then display satellite images along with relevant info, audio or video.
Mr. Ford has a really interesting concept – how many times have you read a book, and wondered where the characters really were? Now you can easily find out.
