I’ve read several books on the subject of self-publishing and I’ve decided that it’s past time for me to publish a book. Having debated various formats and distribution methods, I’ve decided to publish it for the Amazon Kindle. It’s to be a technical reference and tutorial for beginners on HTML and CSS. I don’t expect fantastic sales, but it will be an interesting experiment in publishing a technical book in a medium that doesn’t handle graphics well.

I have a background with eBooks as I contributed several books to Project Gutenberg (and helped to program one of their child sites). So, online book distribution is near and dear to my heart. I may also give POD (print on demand) publishing a try with the same book. I’ll keep you updated on how it turns out.
