New Project - Writing A Book For Packt. Sametime 8.5.1 Administrator’s Guide

Gabriella Davis  13 November 2010 19:18:03
Back from all my travels and getting started on a new side project.  After their great work on the Sametime 8 Essentials: A User's Guide published by Packt, Marie Scott, Tom Duff and I have been asked to co-author an Administrator's Guide for Sametime.  The Sametime 8.5.1 Administrator's Guide is going to be a 9 month project in our "free time" and I'm very excited to be taking it on alongside Tom and Marie , it's much less daunting writing 400+ pages when you know your co-authors have done this before so expertly!

We are planning a few of the technical chapters to coincide with product updates in 2011 so hopefully by the time the book comes out we should be the Sametime 8.5.2 Administrator's Guide. Now I've blogged it there's no backing out, we have a great outline and I've many pages of technical notes to get us started.  Our first chapter is due to be submitted to the publisher by December 20th so please wish us luck!
