I’ve let the summer have its way with the blog, and there’s one month to go yet, but here’s some news in the midst of my ongoing hiatus. I’ll post more regularly in September!
Diary of a Real Estate Rookie continues to garner great press, reviews and interviews. Ali Rogers was interviewed at Salon.com last week Real Estate Rookie Tells All.
Amazon isn’t the only game in town but it sure is fun when a book pops high on the list right before publication. Dan Gookin’s Find Gold in Windows Vista doesn’t ship for a week or two but something happened this morning to shoot it to #20 on the Computer Bestseller list. Congrats, Dan!
Congrats also to Lee Varis, whose Skin: The Complete Guide to Digitally Lighting, Photographing, and Retouching Faces and Bodies remains a consistent Amazon bestseller. What a great run, Lee!
Congratulations to Fresh Books client and USAT columnist, Ed Baig, who, with Bob LeVitus (a Waterside client), finished iPhone for Dummies in record time.
And the same goes for David Boles, who just wrapped his Google Apps Administrator Guide ahead of schedule (for Course Technology). Congrats David!
Wilderness Press has told me I will see the galleys for Michelle Waitzman’s Sex in a Tent any day now. I’ll report back as soon as I read them!
I want to send a shout out to local publisher Willow Valley Press, which is about to publish a memoir that has garnered great pre-publication reviews. Dandelion Through The Crack, by Kiyo Sato, is the story of a Japanese family’s struggle to make a home for themselves in California through the depression and World War Two. Congratulations. I can’t wait to read it. Linked.
