I'm glad to announce that I've got my first book published.

Important Update: Due to several editorial mistakes (read: they mangled my original manuscript), as of now I've officially requested this book to be removed from circulation. Needless to say you needn't guess what would be my mood at present. :-/

Update 2: I'm told that it's near impossible to remove the first edition from circulation, but before the second printing, the mistakes shall be corrected.

It's a non-fiction children's book written for the "Prodigy" series of books by the publishing firm New Horizon Media. My first topic was Adolf Hitler and I managed to condense his entire story to about 80 pages of simple English (not easy!). I got my author copies today.

Anyway, I scanned the cover page:

I'm not involved in marketing the book in any way, so don't look at me for copies. :biggrin:

  5. Titanium, unfortunately not hooray at the moment, because I'm asking this book to be removed from circulation as the edited version has been mangled beyond recognition.

  8. I was kidding, Hari. I probably wouldn't read it if you sent it. :>>

  9. RT, the cost of shipping that book to you would have exceeded the cost of the book itself.

    It's a small, 80 pages book meant for children, so I'm sure you would have had no trouble with it. :p
