Sorry for the lack of posts the last few days. Once the book was finished, I decided to take a few days mostly away from the computer, which would have been glorious had I not come down with the flu. I'm now mostly recovered, and thought I should announce a few things.

I've had several people ask me when the book would be available, so here is the information I have currently.
  • The eBook should be available tomorrow-ish here
  • The dead-tree version should ship by the end of the year. Orders placed at online booksellers like Amazon should ship out by December 31. The book may not show up on bookstore shelves quite that soon, however, as it takes some time for them to get through the distribution channels.
I'm also announcing my own availability. With the book done, I now have the bandwidth to take on new contract work, for the first time in quite some time. If you're looking for an experienced person to do iPhone development, code or architecture review, or in-house training, drop me an e-mail at my first name, underscore, my last name at mac dot com.

Is it going to be on Safari Books Online?

I do not know. I believe so - Apress participates in Safari online, and my royalty statements have shown Safari royalties (not that I have any idea how those are calculated), so I would assume so, but I haven't heard either way.

Looking forward to reading your new book, I'll pick it up as soon as the buy button works.

I bought the e-book thinking I could put it on DropBox and read it on my iPhone while travelling on the train to and from work (where I have most spare time).
Unfortunately, because it is password protected it is a no-go :(
Any ideas how to support reading this book on an iPhone?

Also - a question about the royalties you were referring to - is it rude for me to ask what sort of a percentage you are getting on the book sales? 20%? 30%? I have no idea and I am very curious ;)

Nice information, many thanks to the author. It is incomprehensible to me now, but in general, the usefulness and significance is overwhelming. Thanks again and good luck! Web Design Company
