Ready, Set, Explore!  A guide for touring the U.S. national parks

I have some very exciting news to share, my friends. Over the last several weeks, I've been hard at work on my very first multimedia ebook and it's officially live and ready for public consumption!

I was thrilled to be asked to try out the publishing app Snippet for this project. If you haven't checked it out, by all means, hop to it! The Snippet App is not only a super cool way to publish multimedia content, but it's also a great way to take it all in as a reader.

Now, you know how I love traditional printed goods: books, magazines, newspapers—you name it! I'm a huge fan of the way ink on paper smells and the tactile delight of turning a real, live page is my jam. However, the capabilities of this platform have me completely hooked. Being able to add video, audio recordings, photos and social media integration into an easily-digestible ebook is kind of incredible.


The book is titled Ready, Set, Explore! and, as you can see from the cover art above, it dives into a topic that's near and dear to my heart—the U.S. national parks. I have always hoped that by sharing my passion for travel and the great outdoors, I could get a few others to start enjoying the parks as much as I do.

In this book you'll find tips for planning a trip to the national parks, some favorite spots to visit and much more. I had the pleasure of continuing my conversation with Sheldon Neill and Colin Delehanty of Project Yosemite throughout the book and the folks at Glacier Country Tourism were kind enough to help on the video side of things. I hope you'll find it fun to read and—of course—useful!

If you'd like purchase the book to read on the web, you can sign up for a Snippet account and download the book here. If you'd like to take it with you on-the-go, you can do so for iOS (Apple) mobile devices by downloading the Snippet App on iTunes here and then heading to the travel category. 

You've all been incredibly supportive of my various adventures—of both the creative and travel variety. For that I will always be thankful.

Happy reading, friends!
