    Seriously Tom. I think its time for a planted aquaria book of your own. I'd wager it would sell pretty well too.

    PhD first, then hobby, books etc.
    There is a progression.

    Isn't there a "write book" function in most modern word processors? Just check the right boxes and a few fill-ins on a form, click "Ok" and *poof* you have a book? ;-)

    I'd rather pass the muster correctly, than simply publishing elsewhere and getting something to the presses fast and have it be 3rd rate.

    Half or more of the secret to producing a good book is a good editor. I can't remember an author who was not profusely thankful for having one. I'm still looking for a new Mac program that will do that by clicking the right buttons. One road to riches is to write that program - well.
