Now you can pretend to focus on your workflow like a pro…anywhere you go. Sorry. I didn’t mean for that to rhyme. Just kinda happened.
50% of our Book? Yeah, We Submitted That.
Let it be known that Lynn and I reached another landmark today: We managed to submit well over 50% of our first draft of Drupal for Dummies: 2nd Edition to Wiley. Amazingly, we did it on time. Well, it’s amazing for me, anyway. With all of the woes I had working on Joomla for Dummies, I’m not used to things going smoothly where writing tech books is concerned. Anyway, with no...

This Month in Print
Between working on the new book, and scrambling for a number of websites, I’ve still been fortunate enough to see some of my work make its way into the pages of MacLife Magazine where I reviewed a pair of iOS GPS4CAM and Friends. If you’ve got a camera that doesn’t come equipped with built-in geo tagging functionality, you’re going to love GPS4CAM. Just install it to your...

Colour Me Impressed
I’m a feeling a little bit thankful and a little bit irritated this morning. Those of you who know me will know that only the part about being thankful is really news, but that’s beside the point. Here’s the thing: I received an email from my agent’s office yesterday. It seems that my advance for Drupal for Dummies: 2nd Edition was by them the other morning. This means that...

Toiling in the Vineyard
I’m expected to hand in my 25% submission for the revision of Drupal for Dummies this Monday, and I have to say that I’m feeling pretty good about it. Perhaps my lack of stress over the work comes from having survived the monkey-knife fight that was Joomla! for Dummies. It could also be that the author of the original work (and my writing partner on this project), Lynn Beighley put...
