Some quick notes and news about the book!
As of now..
- WordPress 3.0 should be out before we know it. We will be updating the book of course, but we aren't promising any particular timeframe for that. Probably "late summerish". We just want to make sure we do a good job and revisit the entire book and update what is needed as well as write about all the 3.0-specific stuff at the end.
- We have about 50ish books left in this last run. After that, we'll be stopping the sale of print books. Maybe not forever, maybe forever, we aren't sure yet (PDF's will always be available). We're going to look into some print on demand services to help us streamline the process should we go back to print. If you for sure want a print copy, act now, this may be the last chance.
- We have also turned off international shipping. In our manual shipping process, international orders have been problematic. It takes 4 weeks at a minimum, sometimes double that. It is insanely expensive, sometimes making the total book cost $100. There have been problems of the books getting stopped by certain governments. There has been plenty of unhappy folks along the way which results in enough refunds that we've essentially lost money on international orders. If we go with a print-on-demand service or an outside shipping service which ships international, that would be great, but again no promises there.
Thanks to everyone who has purchased a copy! Its done amazingly well and we are grateful for that. Soon we'll be sharing a sort of "what we learned" post that will hopefully be of interest to any other potential authors out there.
