Book News

Well, I received the first copy of the new book, "Simplicity", from the fine folks at Lulu and it looks great! I'm actually astounded - I was sure I'd have to get rid of a few images because their printing process wouldn't do them justice but they all look very nice indeed.

Next steps...
  1. Get an ISBN (I can do this through Lulu)
  2. Make and upload a preview .pdf
  3. I'll probably also make a little picture set on the website with some large fraction of the pictures. Just from email I've exchanged with people they seem more comfortable buying the book the more they know what's in it.
  4. I should consider revising the preview for the earlier book and adding a set for it as well - I never really put a lot of thought or effort into promoting it... just got distracted basically...

Very exciting!

Update: ISBN 978-1-4116-8743-1 although it won't show up in Books in Print for a couple of weeks.
Update: You can see the preview pdf here. I've also added the cover and a link to a page that shows previews of some of the images here. Those are already much better than what I had for the first book, but I'll probably fiddle with them some before the book arrives. Still, you get the idea.

I'll start taking pre-orders when I think I'm around a week from having the first batch of copies in-hand. But since I didn't have to do a second round of proofing I think that will be mid-April!
