Boulder Media Women's 2007 and 2008 Titles

There are graphic/website designers, technical advisers, copyeditors, authors, journalists, publishers, public relations and marketing professionals, producers, and film makers, to mention just a few of the talents in Boulder Media Women. Here’s a list of the latest and forthcoming titles produced by them. To find out more, go to their website at www.BoulderMediaWomen.com -- Rosemary

Hi Rosemary,

Thanks for collecting and posting the books by Boulder Media Women. My essay, The Biology of the Sandworm, discusses whether or not a creature like the sandworms of Dune could actually exist.
