Adventures in Publishing

Yesterday I received the print proof of my book. In it, I can see the years of experience, research, writing, and design that went into its creation. It’s as full of memories as it is of lessons learned. In this post, I’ll share some of those lessons in hopes of demystifying the many different ways in which you might publish a book.

I spent the last two years writing a book about experience design. Now I'm marketing and talking to people about that book. This blogpost was inspired by those conversations.
