Starting a New Book

Today is an auspicious day. For the first time in several years I am putting fingers to keyboard to commence a completely new book, my first one since Effective XML. This is always an exciting and anxious time.

For the last few years I have written several second and third editions, and generated a copious amount of articles and conference presentations. However the book work has really slacked off. Quite a few good ideas never found a publisher; but the contract for the next book is now signed. It’s still a computer book, but it’s branching out into a new area I haven’t previously written about. Look for it in early summer 2007.

    Will you place the draft chapters on the web. like you did with “Processing XML With Java”? I think that “open review” made “Processing XML With Java” such a great book! Would be good, if the contract allows you to do it.
