I got great news today: my book proposal has been accepted! Wow.
I wrote before that I got the request to submit a book proposal from my favourite tech publisher. Wow, but I was in the middle of moving to a new house.
Somehow I scraped together enough evenings and nights to do a good job on the book proposal (with a full sample chapter, mind you) and to give it to them for review last wednesday.
And... tonight I got the good news that I’m in. I’ll write a book! First a bit of paperwork and then I’m off. It’ll be hard work, but fun. And I plan on blogging about it regularly, as others might be helped by reading about how I write a book.
(Once I can tell what it will be about I’ll do so. For now I’m keeping quiet about the subject until I’ve figured out how open/closed the publisher wants to be about that.)
My name is Reinout van Rees and I work a lot with Python (programming language) and Django (website framework). I live in The Netherlands and I'm happily married to Annie van Rees-Kooiman.
