In view of the increase in disasters around the world, we, Dr. and Mrs. Carman, felt a need to use our
combined talents and expertise to provide inexpensive eBooks to the public at large on subjects that would
help us all survive those catastrophic events that seem to happen with greater frequency.
We have sought to augment the selection of our own eBooks with those we've researched that are already
on the market. We have selected only those with the highest of ratings to make available from our
website. Also, as our website grows, we will provide the opportunity for others to host their eBooks
on our website, providing a royalty unequalled by others who market eBooks.
