Norm's New Book - 55% Off!

Postby NormanDunbar » Tue Jun 09, 2020 9:12 am

Blatant plug mode on!

In case you haven't already got your hands on a copy of my book "Arduino Software Internals", Apress have a sale on until 24th June. 55% off the price of a paper or an Epub/PDF ePackage. The paper version is £12.60 and the eBook is £9.90. Paper books get free postage worldwide and temporary access to the eBooks while you wait for delivery.

https://www.apress.com/gb/book/97814842 ... 1484257906 is the place to be.

Note, Apress.com's prices are cheaper than Amazon (uk) who currently have £0.80 off the price at £27.19. :o


Cheers,
Norm.

Norman, I guess you're too fast for your publisher. The Apress site doesn't know anything about the bargain (yet?)

I will be buying your book when the discount is available.
Is this the first book you have published on computing systems?

Refresh your caches gents, it is available now on the link I gave above and has been for all of June.

That's what is showing right now.

@Tinyfpga - this is my first "paper" book, published by a proper publisher. I have a couple of eBooks out in the wilds on Oracle Databases and my printed ramblings on Assembly Language programming, from QL Today over the years, are also available in eBook form. I also do a slightly irregular eMagazine on assembly programming for the QL.

Link fest coming up:

Oracle Trace Files: https://github.com/NormanDunbar/OracleT ... ses/latest

QL Book: https://github.com/NormanDunbar/QLAssem ... ses/latest

QL eMagazine: https://github.com/NormanDunbar/QLAssem ... e/releases

Everything else: https://github.com/NormanDunbar?tab=repositories

HTH

Cheers,
Norm.

I think they are showing that price only to you ;) It's 27 pounds here and definitely not a caching issue.

Cheers, Marcel

Also, interesting pricing structure: the whole eBook costs £22 but then you can also buy each chapter separately at £20 per chapter... quite a bargain :)

Interesting. If you go to apress.com do you see a button "activate your discount"? Click through that and you should get the discount. Failing that, use "SUMMER55" as the discount code in checkout.

They've been sending out Tweets (on Twitter) all week and advertising it on the main page.

Nothing like consistency, is there!


Cheers,
Norm.

I'm going to grab a copy. We use arduino's at school and to have a QL'er as the author is pretty cool. They took away or cards due to COVID and the huge financial hit the university took so I'll get it own it personally, but at 55% off that's a pretty good deal.

Yes, the button did the trick. I ordered the soft cover version as that was only 3€ more than the eBook ;)

Cheers, Marcel
