Sucia Dawn: Progress Toward a PDF File for Publication
The photograph that accompanies the poem, “The Seattle Space Needle”
in “Sucia Dawn A Book Of Collected Poetry by Ray Volluz”
We have finished a final draft of a .pdf file of “Sucia Dawn”. We are in the final stages of proofreading now and hope to have this version available soon.
We will probably release the .pdf version through Amazon.com.
The advantage of the .pdf version is that it will be readable on virtually any computer. .pdf files are the industry standard, at this point, for document delivery and distribution. These files are read by Adobe Acrobat. The free version, Acrobat Reader is installed on almost every computer purchased today. If you don’t have it, you can download it for free from Adobe’s download pages. For those of you who don’t have mobile readers, here is a version for your computer.
.pdf files are also read on almost every mobile device that is made. iBooks, Kindle and the others will read .pdf files.
The disadvantage of .pdf files is that they don’t flow with the user’s selection of font size, and the other customization features of the various eReader programs.
We will let you know when this version is available.
UPDATE: The PDF version is not available on-line at this time. There was little demand for that format, only the eBooks being downloaded. If you would like a copy of the PDF version, please let us know.
