Welcome to the Author Fold

For most people, the idea of writing a book is a daunting one. There is little that scares people more than a blank page and the need to put 10,000 words onto it in the next 30 days or so. I believe that death and public speaking might be higher on the list, but only by a little. So the gumption it takes to put together a book proposal, submit it to a publisher, write all of those words, suffer with editors and technical editors making comments and finally get to the point where it’s it published is a big deal. For that reason, I’d like to celebrate two of my ObjectSharp colleagues, Lori Lalonde (@LoriBLalonde) and David Totzke (@VisualDragon) who now have a publication date for their book, Windows Phone 8 Recipes.

I know that it’s a thankless journey, but allow me to offer up my appreciation for your contribution to the world of technical literature. As for the rest of you, you can show your appreciation by going here and buying a copy. It is currently on pre-order with a scheduled publication date of June 26th, but you can buy an alpha copy of the book and get access to the wonders that are inside right now.
