You know a book is getting close to hitting the shelves when Amazon let’s you buy it pre-release, and has the cover art. This is how the new book looks.
The word is we might make the Oracle OpenWorld conference, but worst-case is we slip to November. Happy reading!

Clearly, I haven’t learnt my lesson after writing the DB2 book. Apress has asked me back to write another book. This time, it’s on Oracle, and my co-authors and I are busy in the “mad writing” phase. I’m certainly benefiting from all the valuable lessons gained from being a first-time book author, though combating the deities of procrastination is as much a problem as ever.
