Karen Russell and Jeanne Bean published "Marrowstone" in 1978. It covered "... the period from1885 to1952 (1952 per Karen. Book sleeve says "... to 1945"), following the lives of two generations of Island residents and setting important events in chronological order." A lot has happened since 1945/1978. Is it time for a follow up (e)book?
I propose, that over time, Island authors create a set of Google Docs that will collectively comprise an eBook extension of the "Marrowstone" book. During this phase of collecting information, stories, and drafting the eBook, it will be called "Marrowstone 2". The nickname will be "m2" so you can easily find this web page via this short link - www.marrowstone.info/m2.
I chose Google Docs (GD) as the media because it 1) is easily accessible to anyone from any computer, 2) permits collaborative and real-time editing for multiple authors, and 3) is searchable. A group of editors will collect and organize the links to the GDs in the eBook. Since we do not want to allow anyone in the world to edit this eBook, we will control who edits it via an authorized list of editors.
