Ever wish you could give your book’s setting that “you are there” feeling, but can’t afford the plane ticket to do the in-person research? Now you can experience the next best thing: virtual travel. If you have an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, the Live Cams app connects you to live web cams all over the world. Type in where you want to go and get an instant, live scene on your screen. You can even turn and zoom the camera!
