I got my Book on hand!!!!!!!

After waiting for a month, finally i got the printed copy of my book on my hand. It’s a feeling that i can’t express in few words. Though i was baffled by the wrong address posting of the book byPackt, but finally it arrived to the right place.

The book just look awesome to me. I wish the people also find it useful and interesting.
I am now anxiously waiting for few reviews from the readers to know the actual reaction from my audience.

My First Book….

Today I received the cover page of my first book “MediaWiki Administrators’ Tutorial Guide” from Packt Publishing. I knew it is going to publish at the end of February or early march and was expecting to see the cover of the book beforehand. Adding to my surprise I was invited by Nikhil to discuss the cover page of my book. I am an amateur photographer and I was willing to contribute to the cover image of the book. Akshara (my technical editor) and Nikhil, both remembered the word ‘photographer’ from me and they wanted to have my thoughts on the cover image. I sent them one of my taken pictures and was not sure it will make any impact on the book cover. Next morning I woke up from bed and read the mail from Nikhil that my picture had been chosen for my book. It was really a surprising moment for me as I relish my biggest success as a photographer. I hope others like the picture too as well as the book. Now I am counting the days when I will received the email from Packt with the confirmation that the book has been published.
