Humane, Resourced: A book of blogs

Update and thanks

We are nearing the end of the ‘contributing phase’ and I’m amazed at what we have achieved in a month.

The list below is of the contributing authors and (where they have submitted early) the name of their chapter. I’l be working on confirming a release date over the next couple of weeks. We are hoping to get a ‘guest’ author to write the foreword and to tie up some PR, both these factors might impact the release date. We should be looking at within the next 4-5 weeks for a release (fingers crossed!). Thanks to everyone who has made a contribution or been a supporter. Start thinking about how you are going to publicise the book in your network on release day!

Special thanks

  • Neil Usher, Stephen Tovey – for the title
  • the incomparable Simon Heath – for the cover
  • Steve Browne – for championing the book in the US
  • Ian Davidson – for so many suggestions on the PR side

Have a great weekend.
