What is the fastest-growing outdoor activity in the U.S.? Snowboarding? Mountain biking? No. It's bird watching! There are currently 51.3 million dedicated birders in the U.S. with their binoculars focused on the skies. Sure to appeal to this growing flock, 100 Birds to See Before You Die is the ultimate birdwatcher's book.* Selected by two world-renowned birding authors, the top 100 birds include avian species that are endangered, exceptional common species, and others that have achieved legendary status.* You won't need binoculars to spot the huge and powerful, endangered Philippine Eagle or the brightly plumed Andean Cock-of-the-Rock. Each of the 100 featured species is captured in remarkable full-color photographs in their natural habitat.* This fascinating book combines hard-working detail with more unusual facts and anecdotes that have passed into birding mythology, making it much more than a typical bird watching book.* Detailed entries describe that natural history and significance of each bird with useful summary information including size, distribution, habitat, classification, population and conservation status.

Share the fruits of my first five years of publishing. Learn about blogging, writing, cover design, editing, marketing, and find a bunch of great resources to help you in your publishing journey, many of them free. I'm not the be-all and end all of Christian publishing, but I'm here to help, and so are a bunch of other Christian writers and service providers.You know what a net is. It catches things. To a fish or a bird, it's a bad thing. But to an indie author, it's a good thing. Out there online, there are people who will be your net as you learn how to publish. I'm talking about the kind of net that keeps acrobats from squishing when they miss that swing or those hands high up there in the air. But my biggest piece of advice is to concentrate on finding other Christians.You need to find some warm, loving, encouraging, snuggly-blanket-type people you can seek out when you just don't know what to do.
