About frogplate

I've been a very enthusiastic Kindle Keyboard owner for over a year now. I also use the Android and iOS apps extensively and thanks to Amazon, Zinio and an over-stuffed house I've now given up buying paper media entirely.

I'm a software developer by trade but have just started the research for an ebook on the history of computer hardware architectures. It's been two decades since I did any commercial scribbling so I'm still in the early stages of setting up the tools and workflow (Scrivener and standard Amazon tools at the moment).
