"Self-publishing using OOo3" now online

You can now read and comment on the complete first draft of "Self-publishing using OOo 3 Writer" online. The book starts here. Comments are moderated (to eliminate spam). I will be travelling during the next week, with limited internet access (perhaps only once a day), so do not be alarmed if your comments do not appear quickly. If you prefer not to comment in public, please feel free to send me an email instead. You can still request a PDF version of this draft.

Draft PDF of Self-Publishing using OOo available for review

A complete first draft of my book Self-Publishing using OpenOffice.org 3 Writer is now available in PDF (3.5MB). If you want a review copy, please contact me directly and ask for one. I hope to get the website copy of the book updated and ready for online comments within the next few days. You can help by telling me about anything that
  • doesn't make sense
  • is out of logical order
  • is covered in not enough detail
  • is covered in too much detail for the audience of the book
  • needs more or better illustrations
  • is missing from the book but you think should be covered
  • is covered in two places but should be combined into one place
  • or anything else that you think would make the book more useful for the audience
At this point, please confine your comments to the content, not the inconsistencies of formatting or screen captures or bad page breaks or similar, most of which I am well aware of but unwilling to spend time fixing until I'm confident that I won't be rewriting or deleting whole sections.
