Special Guest Host for 10/16 #storyappchat: Liz Castro

Liz CastroWe’ve got someone special lined up for this week’s #storyappchat: tech writer and ePub expert Elizabeth Castro! She authored the book that taught me (and scores of others) HTML more than a decade ago, and her recent EPUB: Straight to the Point book is a godsend for designers and independent publishers tasked with creating ePub documents for the iBookstore and elsewhere. Read more about Liz at her site, blog and Amazon page. Here’s her Twitter profile too.

Of special interest to those of us who want to create electronic storybooks for kids is Liz’s recent ePub miniguide titled Read Aloud ePub for iBooks, which walks readers through the process of creating narrated books for the iBookstore, complete with word highlighting. As far as I know, this book is the only resource of its kind now available.

Bring your questions, comments and good humor for Liz. We will kick things off at 9:00 p.m. EDT this Sunday night–just use the Twitter hashtag #storyappchat to participate.

P.S. First-timer? No worries. Just check out this fantastic Twitter chat cheat sheet by Debbie Ohi–it’s a piece of cake!
