As an author, I am THRILLED to hear about this new form of book publishing - digital book with video. Especially as an author of books on cinema, this is an ideal format, because so often I wish I could just bring the reader directly from a page into a film clip and talk about it. Already I make movie-style "trailers" for my books. (see video below)

Sample trailer for my book, THE MODERN AMAZONS: WARRIOR WOMEN ON-SCREEN. This would be so much better if I could just have these clips jump off the pages of a "vook"
