His first novel, Kicked to Death by a Camel, was nominated for an Edgar in the category of Best First Mystery. Some readers have maintained that the best thing about it was the title! his novels enabled him to make stories out of my personal experiences, mostly during travels to the Middle East. His  academic writings deal either with Islam, human-animal relations, or the history of technology. In all three cases, His greatest satisfaction comes from asking unusual or previously unasked questions and exploring innovative methods in trying to answer them. His most recent book, The Wheel: Inventions and Reinventions, was a joy to research and write since it dealt with the entire world from 4000 BCE onward.             ...

PLEENQ is a plugin that you install on your website which converts static images into hoverable, interactive content. Users can click on any of the items within the images to be taken to where they can buy them. You can also use these links as content for your site, linking to Wikipedia, IMDB, etc. When a user clicks on a PLEENQ image that represents a purchasable product, they're redirected using an affiliate link. Each company they work with has a different commissioning structure for how much money you can make, but typically they are seeing a 2-4% conversion rate (purchases) from clicks, and a 2% CTR (click-through rate). His goal is to create an environment where purchases occur because a user is finding the service more efficiently than the current paths to find what they're interested in purchasing.   Travis Dillard - Body Transformation Specialist for Busy Business  [caption id="attachment_16178" align="alignright" width="160"] Travis Dillard[/caption] Travis helps entrepreneurs and busy guys better their bodies, gain more energy and increase focus without all the pressure and noise in life.
