It is Finished…

The BECB, that is. That’s the big evolution/creation book, for those not up on the local slang. Finished the first draft last night. Very cool.

On the other hand, looks like I just lost my excuse for sporadic blogging…

    Any forecast for when your Sudoku book will hit the shelves? And will there be an e-version?

    Excellent! As first drafts go, roughly how long are you expecting the final book to be? Are we talking slim pamphlet or Neal Stephenson style saga?

    Jim –

    The Sudoku book is currently scheduled to come out around November. Oxford University Press releases e-editions of all their books, but I think the Sudoku book may not fare too well in that form. The book is very diagram heavy and has lots of original puzzles for solving.

    Physicalist –

    You’re too kind. :)

    Stephen –

    Somewhere in between! The finished book will probably be in the 250-300 page range.

    You’ve got me curious, Jason. Any previews?

    Would love to see your taxonomy of evolutionary models.
    Also, put me on your reviewer list. :-)

    Cool looking forward to the BECB, will need to clear a few books I’ve had sitting around before it’s released.

    I too am looking forward to reading it. I like e-books because I can carry it around with me and text search for topics or quotes (no… not to quote mine… well, not too much anyway).

    Congratulations on finishing the book. I hope it’s a success.

    Thanks! It will be a little while yet before the book actually appears. I’m first handing in the manuscript on May 1, and then it will take a while to turn it around. So we’re looking at early 2012 as a publication date. Right now it’s in the hands of various proofreaders.

    Damn me to several of the christian’s gods for not being a proofreader!
