New book: The Beginner’s Guide to Markdown and Pandoc

I’ve just finished editing a new book on the tools I use for my book writing.

It’s uploaded to Amazon but there is a review process so it is not available yet. It will be within the next 72 hours. I’ve enrolled it in Kindle Select so I can make a “Free book” promotion, which I will do as soon as I can. So expect it to be free for the first five days. After that, it goes to the minimal price I can give it while get 70% royalties, which is $2.99 + VAT.

The book gives a tutorial on writing in Markdown, including some extensions that Pandoc provides, and a tutorial on how to use Pandoc to format texts into different formats, including how to write templates where you can control the final layouts and formatting.
