I ve not written about this before, but long story short, Microsoft Press and I have parted ways with my work on the SBS 2008 Administrators Pocket Consultant. I won t go into the details, but will say that it was due to a difference of opinion on things combined with some very personal factors in my private life that lead to the decision. I ve retained full ownership of the content I had done at that time (approximately half the book is completed).
I noticed this week that Amazon is listing the book with myself and Susan Bradley as authors and a release date of April 2009. This is incorrect. Neither Susan or I are involved in this title anymore. Susan did in fact write a few chapters for me which I will be using in other projects. I m not sure who the authors are but I know from working with MSPress that the book will certainly be worthwhile.
As for my own book plans, I ve been working on a few ideas but they too are on hold until I return from a long overdue family vacation which starts next week until early January 2009.
In late January 2009 I will announce the plans and I can assure you, that it will be worth the wait 🙂
