Books update

Hi guys, it’s been a long time since I updated the blog. Part of the reason for this is that I’ve been a bit busy with my books.

First, an update on Domain Specific Languages in R. It is currently set to be released on August 14th, but I should get the proofs next week, and last I heard, they will try to get the book out already in June. I will update you when I know more. If you want to make sure you get it as soon as possible, you can already pre-order it now.

Then there is The Joys of Hashing. I am working on the last two chapters, but I have gotten an offer on it from Apress, so I might only include one of those in the self-published versions and leave the last chapter for the Apress version. I don’t know exactly when I will pull the book from the self-publishing sites yet—it will be shortly after I agree with the contract for selling it, but I haven’t done that, and I don’t want to have a deadline for delivering it before I’m done with the actual writing. It will be some time over the summer, though. So if you want the book, you might as well get it now. You can download it for free, but I’d appreciate any donation. You can get it several places:

Speaking of “several” places, The Beginner’s Guide to Todoist is no longer fixed to Kindle Select, so it isn’t tied to Amazon. You can get it—again, for free or any price you wish to pay—on several sites:

Since this book is actually completed, you can also get it on iTunes.

My two other “Beginner’s Guides” will be out of Kindle Select over the summer, and you can preorder them now on the sites that allow me to put them up without also releasing them. I have made new covers for them, that I hope you like.

These, I have set a minimum price for. I need to recoup enough on my writing to pay for software subscriptions I use for my writing.
