At the start of the year I published The Screencasting Handbook, my eBook on the art of screencasting gained whilst building ShowMeDo and ProCasts. Writing a 129 page book was an interesting challenge, I’m very happy with my early peer-review approach, the book retailed at $39 at first and later I dropped the price to $19 as some of the material has dated.
For the last 5 months I haven’t made any changes but I did keep the emailing list. Now I’m shutting the email lists as there’s little point re-mailing everyone to say that the book is done. Really I should have shut the lists months ago! The Handbook is still for sale of course (at $19USD) and will be for quite some time to come.
Putting this older project into ‘life support’ mode is rather cathartic, now I get to focus on fresh projects like SocialTies (now in iPhone and Android app stores) and our forthcoming StrongSteam ‘Artificial Intelligence web service’.
