The WordPress Bible
A few months ago, I let you know that WordPress Bible: Second Edition was available for pre-order. That has changed. It is now out and available to be ordered. Amazon, as usual, is the best way to order it. This edition of my book has 60 new pages in it and covers up to WordPress 3.1. So all that stuff about post formats, custom post types, custom taxonomies, the merge of WordPress MU into WordPress as Multisite, the terminology changes… all of it…. covered in this book.

Writing "The WordPress Bible"
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away… That’s how the process of coming to be the newest author for Wiley Publishing seems to have gone, even though the initial contact was only in late April. Back then, I received a mysterious email in my inbox asking if I would be interested in […]
New Book Deal In the Works
Just a note that I’ve been approached by a major publisher to write a sizeable book for a notable series that they own. Clearly, I’m being a little sketchy on details until the deal is done. It will, of course, put my back against the wall for a period of time while I try to […]
Now is Gone is Here
Good friend of mine and sometimes-columnist here at Technosailor, Geoff Livingston, is celebrating the launch of Now is Gone, the book he’s been working on for quite some time (it also has a blog associated with it as any good new media book does).
