Books Writing

Finished the Draft

I finished the book draft today. I don’t remember ever being so tired when I’ve finished a book, previously. Perhaps it’s the cumulative effects of all the words written, code samples created, proofs read, edits made, reviews read with trepidation.

Next week I need to review the errata for the Learning JavaScript book, so those making the language translations can start with clean copy. Then on to the Adding Ajax editing. By the first of March, I’ll be ready for a break. During that time, I might see what I can do incorporate some of the stuff I wrote about into my own sites.

Books, that now makes lots of books:

Special Edition Using PERL 5 for Web Development, October 1996

A couple of chapters for a book on Perl that I can’t remember the name of the book’s title.
