  • How I wrote the book
    • I learned about the battle by reading many, many books.
    • I searched the Internet to find even more information.
    • I organized all of the information into an outline.
  • My Outline
    • Each chapter had its own outline.
    • After every two pages the reader makes a choice.
    • This choice sends the reader on different paths.
    • Some of the paths cross over each other.
  • The Battle of the Alamo
    It took me more than 6 months to research and write the book.

    Yay! I was very happy when it was all finished and proud of how it turned out.
