Get Pre-Publication iPhoto 2 VQS Chapters

Get Pre-Publication iPhoto 2 VQS Chapters -- As the latest in my efforts to experiment with various approaches to electronic publishing, I will be making available for download each chapter in my forthcoming book, iPhoto 2 for Mac OS X: Visual QuickStart Guide. Most people who use iPhoto have probably upgraded to iPhoto 2, but I see no reason why people who want to buy the book should wait for all the unavoidable aspects of print publishing (especially for international readers) that delay the arrival of a book. So here's the deal. If you pre-order my iPhoto 2 book on Amazon, from Peachpit, or any other source, and send your receipt to <iphoto-vqs@tidbits.com>, I'll send you the instructions for getting each chapter in PDF format as soon as I finish writing and Tonya finishes editing. I'll also add you to a mailing list that will receive announcements when I upload a new chapter. At the end, I'll post the entire book as a single PDF with the bookmarks and links that can make an electronic book even more useful than a physical copy. And of course, when the paper copy comes out, it will arrive on your doorstep as soon as possible.

A few notes about different retail outlets: Since I'm handling all this myself ("if you want something done right..."), it really doesn't matter where you choose to pre-order the book as long as you can send me a receipt via email. However, I've noticed that Amazon is not yet discounting the $20 book their usual 20 to 30 percent, so you'll pay a bit more there right now. Other booksellers may offer a discount and reasonable shipping rates. [ACE]
