Writing a new book is a complex multi-step process, only part of which is done by the actual author. There are three basic steps where the author has stuff do to. The first two are the writing of the first draft and then reviewing the copy which has been tech edited to make revisions based on the notes from the tech editor.
This part of the process is now done for The Basics of Digital Privacy
Now a bunch of magic happens and the word docs get converted into some PDFs which are basically what the actual book will be printed from. I’ll get those back in probably a few weeks so review them to make sure that nothing got screwed up, that the images are correct, etc.
Then a few more weeks of magic and a physical book appears on my doorstep.
Hopefully the magic elves over at the publisher will get their part done for a holiday release as scheduled.
I’m pleased to announce that the Basics of Digital Privacy is almost done. While this isn’t my first book into the information security space, this is my first book which is written not for the Information Technology worker, but instead for the general public. This book is being written to explain what the risks are and how to solve those problems in plain English so that people who don’t spend their entire lives working with computers can begin taking control of their digital information with the eventual goal of keeping others from watching what they are doing online.
While the book hasn’t been published yet, the hope is to have it available for purchase by the holiday season. You won’t find it on Amazon or any of the other book sales websites, yet. It will make it’s way there slowly as the project gets closer to completion. There is however a teaser on the publishers website.
For now that is all I’ve got. Hopefully you get a chance to take a look at the book.
