Congratulations to client Peter Hipson on the publication of Firefox and Thunderbird: Beyond Browsing and Email, from Que. Thanks for working with me, Peter!

From the Amazon listing —

“There’s a new browser in town: Firefox is quickly becoming a leading alternative to Microsoft Internet Explorer. If you are new to Firefox and want to see what all the buzz is about, Firefox and Thunderbird: Beyond Browsing and Email is the guide that you need. By focusing on how to configure and customize Firefox and Thunderbird, this book will show you how to quickly get a hold of the less intuitive features that most new users struggle to figure out. You will discover which of Firefox’s many options should be adjusted, which shouldn’t, and how to locate many hidden preferences that will ultimately create a better browsing experience. The author’s tips and tricks will teach you how to adjust the browser’s appearance and behavior, and how to install the most popular extensions to maximize the browser’s performance.”

I’ll add a news page somewhere on my site so I don’t post all new books in the RSS feed, but I will post books here on occasion to let folks know what I’ve been working on.

I don’t know whether to brag today that I rep this fantastic photographer or brag that the the first Fresh Books title has been published. Thankfully, the photographer and author are one and the same.

I’ve repped over a thousand books in the last 15 years, but this was my first solo project and I’m extremely pleased to congratulate Harold Davis on his Digital Photography: Digital Field Guide, published by John Wiley & Sons.

Jul 082005

Harold Davis hosts what is becoming an increasingly stunning photoblog, Photoblog 2.0, which began, innocently enough, as the future companion web page to his forthcoming Digital Photography Digital Field Guide (Wiley), but has become much more.

Harold obviously has great fun exploring the technical side of photography, whether playing with various lenses or Photoshop, and he’s posted some great pics of the Berkeley environs, but his recent sets of wilderness shots hearken back to his first career as a professional wilderness photographer, and it’s a pleasure to see him doing something he so obviously loves and is so obviously good at.

It’s nice to see what can become of a web site meant as a companion to a book — it can have a life of its own — and it’s great to watch an author in action who loves his subject. This recent post is part one of what promises to be much more than a digital camera tale.
