Dreamed last evening to post the current page 65 of the educational ebook I’m editing

I dreamed last night to post the current page I’m editing of my book. For one thing, I made it over the psychological hump of not having opened the book in months. Now I’m back in the swing, and perhaps wish to as much also display the kind of book I am writing. 

I was yesterday just checking links (in case any are broken and need to be updated), reading for content, updating the bibliography. I guess just to reveal that there’s a reason that this book has been taking an extraordinarily long time.

Below are pics referring specifically to page 65 in the educational ebook I’ve been researching, writing and illustrating “A Seahorse Tale – A Spin on the Matter of Motion”. 

The pics encompass the specific section of the Table of Contents in which this ‘chapter’ is located.

Plasma  |  Interconnectedness  |  Permafrost  |  Methane – Greenhouse Gas

Section of this particular page of the interactive TOC – Table of Contents – including pg 65

Each chapter includes several subjects which a student or class could choose to jump to independently to study these specifically, or the book can be read chronologically from beginning to end. Below are pics of just page 65. 

Each page has an image: art, science, graphs
Text links are red, Video links are green

I worded the links so that the subjects can be easily identified and created the bibliography in google docs so that the topics can be alternately arranged alphabetically, to quickly locate specific subjects.

Kickstarter Crowd funding towards my book “Adora & Vitali”

Excuse me for cross-pollinating both of my blogs purely for my own self promotional purposes. I’ve been compiling notes, writing, illustrating and researching towards the completion of my book by December 28th, 2012: “Adora & Vitali: A Spin on the Matter of Motion” (Love and Life !-) The deadline imposed by the crowd funding platform Kickstarter, is over, and frankly I’m happy to have had this outside source of motivation! It’s a tale about a quest, with a lot of physics laced into it.

carol_keiter_author_adora_and_vitaliI created this promotional video to inform and update potential investors about the nature of my book and progress I’ve been making. Kickstarter is a crowd funding platform. The book is a science fantasy, laced with a lot of scientific facts, for which I have an extensive bibliography. The tale is a spiritual quest, in terms of finding appreciation and awe in all of life. It introduces various scientific concepts; involving some geology, chemistry, biology and particularly physics. My incentive in delineating these topics is not only to lay the foundation of how the characters will proceed in their journey, but also to entice readers from 12 years of age and up, to be intrigued with science and instigated to further investigate the topics. I introduce among other things, the fact that much of matter is composed of waves, that the most efficient design in nature is the spiral (which Adora learned from someone in a dream who indicated this by pointing to the tail of a seahorse), the fact that many things in nature are spinning, from the macro to micro environments and an introduction to electromagnetism. This is all relevant, because Adora needs to follow the earth’s magnetic lines in order to reach the entry point to this other world, and a dolphin which navigates through magnetoreception, will guide her.
