Turned in my last chapter for my C# book!

I turned in my last chapter for WROX's Professional C# 3rd Edition. Whew! Now that the last chapter is in, it will get technically reviewed next and then I will receive what is called AR (author review) where I have to go through the chapters and address all the comments and concerns of all the reviewers. After that, the chapters go back to the editors and they review them again and then off to the printing. I understand that we won't see the book in print for another five months or so. The biggest problem with the book was keeping everything under 1,200 pages. The .NET Framework is so dang huge and there are so many cool things that you can do with it, that it is a problem to write a comprehensive book these days. The book will be great though and some of the other authors include Simon Robinson and Christian Nagel.

NO NO NO .... I did this as a favor to my editor in getting it done fast. I CAN do both ... BUT VB IS A BETTER LANGUAGE!!! I feel I can say that since I can do both. I don't like it when people say one language is better when they haven't tried the other. BTW - I also did 25% of Wrox's Professional VB.NET 3rd Edition book.

Not getting into this convo about VB vs. C# but congrats on finishing your chapters! I might have to update my "Professional C#" now (still using v1.0)

Yep Wrox. Wiley recently purchased Wrox (the brand/website and their top 40 titles). Therefore, I STILL am writing for Wiley (in a sense). Actually I have been with the same editor on every one of my books!
