Flash Advertising cover art

My publisher sent over the cover art for my upcoming book a couple of weeks ago and after getting their ok today, I thought I’d go ahead and share it on here. I’d also like to give a special thank you to my friends at Ovrflo Media for coming up with the cover concept.


Wow! Another chapter in the Design Center!

AdobeSo I was perusing the Adobe site last night and I suddenly found myself saying, “Hey, that’s a picture of me on adobe.com!” The very nice people running the Adobe Design Center have posted another chapter (chapter 10 – Preparing and building microsites) of my book so I just wanted to take a second (again) to publicly thank Jen, Sara and anyone else involved in making it happen.

Thanks everyone!

I’m in the Adobe Design Center!

AdobeI’d like to take a minute give a BIG thanks to Jen deHaan and Sara DiGregorio at Adobe for taking time out of their recent days to talk with me and my publisher about including an excerpt from my book on adobe.com. I’m obviously very excited about this and I hope that the excerpt, which is chapter 4, will peak your interest enough to check out the rest of the book.

Thanks again Jen and Sara!

Presenting at DFWAUG tomorrow

DFWAUGWith tomorrow’s DFWAUG meeting being the first since the release of my book, I’ll be presenting it to the group and we’ll be raffling off a copy as well. During the presentation I’ll be giving a general overview of the book, showing some of the work and code featured in the book and talking a bit about the actual experience of being published for the first time. Also presenting tomorrow will be fellow DFWAUG member and Manager of the local Dallas InDesign and Acrobat groups, A.J. Wood. A.J. is the founder of Media-Cats and will be introducing us to the latest version of Adobe InDesign. If you’re in the area, come on out to Nerdbooks in Richardson at 11am tomorrow (Sept 15th). See you there!
