thanks again, and bookish update
Thanks again everyone for weighing in
on what wee photo to use on the back of the book. That was fun, even if it means that 20K or so people will soon own a book with a photo of me lookng like a dork. Great.
Some readers have already gotten sneak previews of parts of the book, and so far no one has called me up to tell me how much it sucks. Whoo! If you're of the educator persuasion and want to see some of it to review for use as handouts or whatever for your classes that use blogs, take a look at the table of contents
and tell me what you'd like to see. I sure wouldn't mind this book being "optional" reading for classes using Blogger. It's less than $20, after all. Anyway, if you want to see something just email me at jcmeloni at gmail dot com or leave a comment.
Funny thing, I still don't know what the cover looks like. The sample posted at Amazon/other booksellers isn't actually the cover, it's just a placeholder. As of Monday, the various editorial folks hadn't agreed on anything. I asked if I could see it (I have no input in these things) and when the fellow said they were still deciding and I told him that I was like a little kid at Christmas and just wanted to open my gift, he reminded me that patience is a virtue especially when it means I'll get a Colecovision
instead of a Lite Brite
. I thought that was funny.
