As a versatile digital media producer, I enjoy creating ebooks as they offer another way to tell a story or teach a few concepts in a ways that a website can’t including no distractions from popups and such. Well, as long as the notifications settings on your devices are turned off!

YOU have the awesome ability to make positive changes to the lives of people all over the world via personal interaction through podcasts (and other social media tools) (yup, I gave it a long title) is my free ebook based on my presentation given at various digital media events in Canada about the benefits of using social media for self help and helping others.

Classic novels with digital-culture themed covers
In 2011, I illustrated covers of four classic novels in the public domain using references to today’s digital culture. Then I packaged them into an ebook for free download. I also blogged about the creative process in creating the covers (as well as providing download links):
- Moby Dick by Herman Melville
- The War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells
- Wired Love by Ella Cheever Thayer (romance over the telegraph)
- The Stutterer by R.R. Merliss (1950s pulp fiction about a stuttering robot)
