I’m happy to report that on June 3rd the final draft of the book manuscript was turned over to Pearson so we could move into production. We had a great team of reviewers helping us get to the finish line here and meet these final deadlines, so I’m incredibly thankful for their work on the final days. Once I receive them, the last bit of active work that needs to be done is going through the figures that the artist at Pearson is drawing up from the line art I created.
From here I’ll be working from a schedule set by the publisher to handle design, composition, proofreading, and indexing. This work goes on through August, presenting us with a projected print date of September 2nd.
The book is also available now for pre-order directly from the publisher, as both a printed book, eBook and a bundle with both: Informit: Common OpenStack Deployments: Real-World Examples for Systems Administrators and Engineers.
