Time for a brief commercial announcement:
Give the gift of science this Christmas! Special factismals collections and the first volume of the Secret Science Society’s fun is available on Smashwords at half off! that’s right! Buy them before Christmas and you’ll only pay half as much as you would normally. Though most sales are after Christmas, I’m running this one right before.

The factismals series is all about the little bits of science that make it so interesting. Each book contains a month’s worth of little facts (factismals) that explain a bit of science. Even better, each day includes a link to a science experiment that you can take part in! And the best part is that your work in each experiment will help the researchers doing the experiment! This isn’t one of those “kill a potato” books; you’ll have opportunities to do *real* science and work with *real* scientists. You’ll be participating in the movement known as “citizen science”.
So take a look. Give an experiment or two a try. What do you have to lose?

In this book, Mary and Peter will discover what it feels like to be in space, how to make rainbows in the backyard, and how to do something impossible. Grab your friends and join in on the fun!
