Media Book Manuscript – almost ready!

The phrase “the last mile is the longest” must have come from the publishing industry. The manuscript of my book on the facts and trends in digital media has been there at that 90% complete level for a while, and the last 10% is taking much longer time. The book is titled: “The Death of Mass Media”….describing how mainstream media will morph into a large aggregation of individual media publishers via blogs etc. More about it in the coming days.

I am thankful to all those who have given suggestions and pointed out assumptions which needed some more text behind them. The support from the team at BookSurge has been great.

So in the next few weeks, the book should finally go out for publication, and this the place where the feedback will arrive. I wanted the book to also have a blog along with it, so the discusion of all things – good and bad- will happen here. Lets be ready for many critics who will point out various flaws. But that’s okay and welcome. It gives one more chance to answer their doubts!

The publisher is BookSurge, the publishing subsidiary of Amazon.com, and so it will start appearing on Amazon right from the final production stages. I expect it to be there by 5th of May…will share more updates in a week. Thanks.

Neel, thanks for asking. The book is finally now into publication phase. Such projects take the worst hit when business becomes hectic, which has been the case last few weeks. But yes, its soon going to be out, and I will post about it here.
