Thanks for the response.  First let me say that while I think I am fairly
good (read maybe better than most) I am not a programmer.

So I think the best thing would for me to send you the file.  I am still
making some finishing touches but I do have a almost completed version.
All my images, pages, etc are finished.  Just doing some editing.

Let me know if you would like to use this file to play around with or you
want to wait for the final final.

BTW thanks.  I am so excited.  I was hoping I could use the scribus file
and not try to start from scratch to do an eBook.

Look forward to hearing from you.
