January 2012

I just finished writing up a sales report for the bookstore at Lotusphere.  Overall sales were a little down this year.  I think it’s because the bookstore was in the back of the Solutions Center.  Who is in favor of having the bookstore by the registration area?  Let me know and I will  see if we can get it moved.

Some highlights:

  • Get Bold by IBM’s Sandy Carter sold like hotcakes.  Everyone is who isn’t focused on building a social business should be.
  • We began taking orders for the upcoming new XPages Portable Command Guide.  It’s out in a month.
  • New Sametime Admin book sold out.  Great author team!
  • Folks enjoyed meeting Sir Tim Berners-Lee – author of Weaving the Web

In July I wrote about our new IBM Press Book – DITA Best Practices and shared a coupon code for 35% off the retail price.

I am thrilled that we have now enhanced the ebook with video tutorials.  Thanks to the proliferation and market place acceptance of digital content – it’s great to be able to add value to the written word.

With this new ebook you can watch video demonstrations to see how to implement some of the advanced features of DITA discussed in this book. With these videos you’ll learn to code short descriptions, links, conditional processing, and content references.  In addition, you will find instructions in the last few pages of your eBook that direct you to the download site for the set of DITA sample files used in examples throughout the book.

How great is that?
