More Clues in the Search for Amelia Earhart!

One of the things we've been following in this blog, is the continuing search for the fate of Amelia Earhart, who vanished in July 1937 on Pacific leg of her round-the-world flight. Amelia is a prominent character in my alternate history novel War Plan Crimson, A Novel of Alternate History and has a short story all to herself in my alt-history collection, Elvis Saves JFK!

According to the National Post, experts are analyzing a photograph of Amelia Earhart's Lockheed Electra just prior to her doomed 1937 flight.  

Photographic analysts are poring over a high-resolution computer enhancement of a 1937 picture of Earhart’s plane to try to establish whether a distinctive area of repaired metal sheeting matches a piece of wreckage recovered off of Nikumaroro Island  in the Kiribati Archipelago.

Amelia Earhart just prior to her flight: is there a clue in the photo?
Experts believe that a match of the rivet patterns would provide “conclusive proof” that the aviator was not, as was widely believed, lost at sea, but instead managed to ditch in the waters off Nikumaroro Island. If Amelia and her navigator, Fred Noonan, did manage to make a controlled water landing, there is a possibility that they made it to the nearby island. What happened there? A gruesome thought is that Earhart and Noonan might've survived the crash only to starve to death on the island...

In the meantime, have a look at my own books, Elvis Saves JFK! for just 99 cents and War Plan Crimson, A Novel of Alternate History, for $2.99 and now The Key to My Heart, also $2.99 (all are free to preview). All books -- which are already on Smashword's premium distribution list -- are also available through such fine on-line retailers such as Sony, Chapters Indigo, Barnes & Noble and Apple's iTunes Store.   Thanks.
