What's the difference? Bedtime-Story e-books published in Illumination are ready to read in roughly the same amount of time it takes for an illustrated html page to download on your screen (quite often in much less time). One difference is that you can re-read the e-book whenever you like, with no wait, and without having to go back online to enjoy the story. Another difference is ....well, you're about to see for yourself. Bedtime-Story's EXCLUSIVE Illuminated e-books are AWESOME!.

You don't need any version of Windows™ to read Illumination Books ! You don't need Adobe. You don't need HTML. Each Illumination book has its own software built in. This means the earliest version of an Illumination Book created nearly a decade ago can be read perfectly on today's machines, and, the newest version of Illumination, which was used to create the book you'll read today, is what will keep both books readable, decades into the future.

DID YOU KNOW.... Illumination Books can be read on any IBM compatible computer in the world. You can even read them on that dusty old 386 you were about to throw out! What a good idea!

ABOUT: SummerWood's
Illumination eBooks

About the Illustrator: The talented Dennis Cox of West Jordan, Utah spends much of his day on the computer illustrating . He tells us he has a wife of 24 years, a recently married daughter and a teenage son (2/3 of which have forced all the hair to leave the top of his head). He also shares his house with 4 dogs and 2 cats (don't ask......). Occasional fishing trips account for most of his recreational time. He has been doodling since about the age of eight. In 1988 he found out what a computer could do for graphics, and has been strictly digital since. He specializes in caricatures and illustrations but sometimes dabbles in animation and portraits. Use the ILLUSTRATOR PORTFOLIO link at Bedtime-Story to see more of this talented artist's work.

About the Author: Cynthia Gurin lives in South Florida with her husband Bob, a quartet of cats, two dogs, and a remarkably wise duck. Cynthia has achieved recognition in both the Miami Herald and The Wall Street Journal for innovative marketing techniques. She considers the Personal Ad, through which she met her husband, to be her most rewarding literary endeavor. She holds a senior corporate position in the real world.
