Delphi 2007 Handbook Published

My brand new "Delphi 2007 Handbook" is now available on Lulu.com.

My brand new "Delphi 2007 Handbook" is now available on Lulu.com. Service support assured me that the binding problem with my "author proof" copy is unrelated with my book (they're also offering me a refund on that), so I've given the book the green light. You can have a copy printed for you, whenever you want... Here are the relevant links:

113 Notes Coming to the Blog

To celebrate the publication, do a little bit or marketing, and share some content freely, I'm starting a "large" project. Over the next couple of months I'll post on this blog the 113 footnotes of the book. That's almost two a day, each day! Most of them are links to other web pages (selected links), some have interesting content. I might first publish a list of the people mentioned in the book, but the 113 notes project is coming along shortly.

Book Marketing

I'll try to do a few more actions to promote the book. If there is anything you can do or suggest me to do, feel free to get in touch. Links are welcome of course. Lulu has no referral structure, but maybe something can be done. What about a free book for the incoming link with more referrals (I'll check the incoming IP address!) to a given "special" URL? Need to write a little tracking application, but this can be certainly done! Other ideas are certainly welcome... I'm open to proposals and have a little money to spend.

And if you are in Frankfurt next week at EPON I hope to have a few copies with me to sell, as well as at other future conferences I'll attend.

OK Marco, I ordered the book! Does that make it the
first sale? ;-) For me it is at least my first Lulu
book buy. I am as curious about this Lulu book
printing as I am to see what you write on Delphi.
Publishing à la Lulu is the way forward for all
non-mass market books. Looking forward to see more
books on specialised subjects from your hand.
Greetings, RIF

to feed my Delphi book habit!  Ordered.

Just ordered my copy - I'm looking forward to reading
and reviewing it on the CodeGearGuru website - I hope
it sells well so we can look forward to a Delphi 2008
Handbook ;-)

Just ordered my copy too!
Can't wait to start reading your book, too bad it will
only arrive in 2 weeks :(

Hopefully my colleague Robin will let me read his copy
when it arrives ;)

Arghl! I also ordered the book already, but... I
wouldn't have if I had read this blog post first...
You see, I will be at EKON11 next week and I didn't
realize you would have any pre-printed copies with
you. This would have saved me the wait...

Do you think I should cancel my Lulu order and buy
from you directly at the conference? See you there in
any case!

Cheers,

Oliver

Oliver,

I'll have some copies, but have to give away a few...
so I don't know how many extra copies I'll have to
sale. Don't know how canceling an order on Lulu works,
though.

I can't see any asp.net web development with delphi...
Still you are writing win32 application books.
I am waiting a book which teaches delphi for asp.net 
and web designing , samples sites made with 
delphi.net , integrate CSS to IDE , XML 
technologies , AJAX etc...

I pUrchased the book, however, I was really hoping 
for a E-Book option so i could start reading it now 
(in particular, the DBX4 stuff).  THen i see others 
saying that it will take 2 weeks to get the book. I 
hope that is not the case.

My order has shipped yesterday. It took 7 days to 
generate the book. This is normal at Lulu. Hopefully 
I will receive the book early next week.

Lulu only ships to selected countries :(
How do I get a copy sent to New Zealand. I'm sure 
you are missing out on sales because of this.
