In the excitement of PDC, it slipped my mind to let everyone know that the book on which I was a co-author was actually shipped at the beginning of October. The title is the terse, yet incredibly descriptive MCTS Self-Paced Training Kit (Exam 70-503): Microsoft® .NET Framework 3.5 Windows® Communication Foundation (PRO-Certification). There is a bidding war for the movie rights and I'm hoping that George Clooney plays me in the adaptation. :)
For those of you wondering how the actual release might have slipped my mind, the reason is that I'm not involved in the steps that takes place at the end of the publishing process. Most of the book was written in the first half of the year. Since July, I have been reviewing chapters and responding to editor notes. But since the middle of August my tasks have been done. And, I'm afraid, when it comes to book writing, once I'm done, I mentally move on to the next task. So I wasn't even sure when the publication date was. But it was released and, based on the numbers that I've seen so far, it seems to be doing quite well. If any of you have the chance to read it, I'd be thrilled to hear any feedback (both good and bad).
