an unusual one-page book sales page
Here is an unusual one-page book sales page that really consists of more than one page, but functions much like a one-page sales letter. Check it out at:

Note: The sales copy needs work, but the execution is interesting. The pages are essentially part of a Flash movie, which shows page after page of static content and includes a transition of page-flipping noise.

The following are a few of the services that feature page-flipping, streaming audio and video, and other useful formatting for readability of text-based books, newspapers, magazines, brochures, reports, catalogs, photo albums, and more.

Blue Toad: With BlueToad's page-flip technology, you can quickly and easily offer an enhanced online version of traditional paper publications for as low as $2 per page. Upload and convert print files to create a one-of-a-kind online publication with streaming audio, streaming video, and as many as 20 direct web links per page, available right from your own website.

Flip@Once: You can create user-friendly presentations with any PDF file. It comes in two versions: Flip@Once Desktop (a stand-alone unlimited use Windows application for creating and managing multiple interactive digital documents) and Flip@Once Online (a pay per page service for creating online electronic flipping books). Also features video streaming and thumbnail previews.

PageFlip Widget: pageflip/fbd1.html?ref=pageflip Takes ordinary PDF files and makes the pages flip.

Alive Ebooks: You have to check out these multimedia ebooks. Read The Way of the Peaceful Warrier by Dan Millman in multimedia. Very neat.

John Kremer's Free Q&A Teleseminars
You can listen in on the first two hours of July 8th's Q&A call by going to: I apologize for the event being cut off at 2 hours. I went on for another 45 minutes, but that part was not recorded. It was all my fault for not extending the time (I got distracted while answering a question).

You can listen to last week's call by going to:

Quotable Books
The problems of the world cannot possibly be solved by skeptics or cynics whose horizons are limited by the obvious realities. We need men who can dream of things that never were. John F. Kennedy, U.S. president
