    Will this ever be a book in print that can be carried around?

      Hi Lyn. This will only be available as a digital book which can be carried around on an iPad or tablet. Printing is costly for a self-publisher! It’s just coming out now in iTunes and Kobo(for Android). These 2 options cover most devices. It can be used on a bigger iPhone with iBooks installed, though it’s not ideal.
