I just got the new web site up and running today after a marathon HTML/PHP/MySQL session. Whew!

Earlier this week I did a quickie phone interview with Nettie Hartsock, who quoted me in an article titled, Setting Up a Software Development Business. That article includes the very first external link to this new web site and announces my new book-in-progress, The Software Self-Publishing Guide.

Several friends have been pushing me to write such a book for years, but I never really had time to write a complete book until now. I did some initial market research, and from what I can tell, this will likely be the first book of its kind. There are many books on building a software business, but I could find no modern books that really explain the details of how to setup, operate, and grow an independent software business based around selling direct over the internet, starting from scratch with little or no money. My book aims to explain how to go from employed programmer to software entrepreneur, so I think it will appeal to software developers who possess the technical talent to develop their own software but who lack the business and marketing knowledge of how to sell software effectively and build a profitable business around it.
