I did an interview about books written specifically for the Kindle at:

I believe the medium is the message—or, at least, it should be. I am turning my skating murder mysteries into enhanced e-books because skating is something you need to see, not just read words about. It's the same with soaps' greatest moments. It's wonderful to read about what went on behind the scenes from the actors, writers and producers' perspectives. But, a picture truly is worth a thousand words and I wanted to make it possible for people to actually watch the scenes under discussion. Not to mention, since soaps are a daily event, any book about them is obsolete the moment it hits the shelves (virtual or otherwise). By linking to websites and messages boards, I created the opportunity for the book to evolve as people read it. They can comment on the selections, discuss them among themselves and suggest even more memorable moments. In this way, Soap Opera 451 is a truly interactive multimedia experience in that it is constantly evolving thanks to its readers.

However, you do NOT need a Kindle to read Soap Opera 451: A Time Capsule of Daytime Drama's Greatest Moments. All you need is anything with an Internet connection (i.e. whatever you are using to read this post), and the FREE Kindle app from Amazon. Just download the app, and then you can read the book on your desktop, your laptop, even your phone!

And make sure to let me know what you think!
