Posted by in Ask Melanie, Featured, Free

I was hanging out with a crazy Brit named George when I first had the idea of the bookii.  I had been working on writing a book and was finding it incredibly 2 dimensional.  I wanted multiple topics and more visual than I could accomplish in print.  I wanted my reader to be able to explore my book rather than reading it one page...
