My Upcoming Book on Essentials for Web Sites

I’ve posted information about my upcoming book at my business site’s new section, New Book on Web Site Essentials. I’ll update information there, especially when I can finally discuss it further, including referencing the title (hopefully soon!).1 You can also sign up to be notified about when it will be available. It’s currently in production via the publisher, SitePoint Books.

My managing editor has been Simon Mackie, who came to SitePoint Books from Glasshaus, where I’d also worked with him. Ian Lloyd was my valuably helpful technical editor. Ian somehow managed his technical editing feedback while in the midst of a world tour with his sweetheart, Manda and his VW Kombi, Ethel. I’m quite sincere in stating that I feel incredibly fortunate to have had these two talented and fun people play such critically important roles with this project. They’ve made all the difference.

1I’m still sworn to secrecy due to an NDA (non-disclosure agreement) with the publisher. I can’t wait to be able to finally talk about it!
