Pre-orders of my book available at reduced price

If you’re thinking of buying my book, now is a very good time. πŸ™‚ Pre-ordering is available at Barnes & Noble, and they’re offering a price of just $26.96 (reduced from $39.95) for a few days.

Update (Saturday 5:15pm in Sydney): The price is now $21.57! I don’t know how long the offer lasts.

Update (Sunday 19 February): There are some problems with the Barnes & Noble page for the book – there is currently no pre-order or buy button at all. In addition, some people have received messages from B&N saying that their orders have been cancelled. Richard Hamilton at XML PressΒ  is investigating. I’m so sorry about the confusion. I’ll let you know as soon as I hear more.

Thanks for letting me know about the problem. I hope it is sorted out quickly.

The book is called Confluence, Tech Comm, Chocolate: A wiki as platform extraordinaire for technical communication. It’s about wikis, Confluence, technical communication, technical writers, and of course chocolate.

Follow Ganache, technical communicator extraordinaire, inside Confluence wiki for an in-depth guide to developing and publishing technical documentation on a wiki. Then, with the groundwork done, you will see how to make your wiki fly.

Experience life as a wiki author and reader. Working in an agile environment? Wikis were made for that! Wondering about search engine optimization (SEO)? Wikis can do that too. Learn how to harness the wiki’s social and collaborative features, turning technical documentation into true communication.

The book is also the confluence of technical communication and chocolate. Because you can’t have one without the other!

I hope you enjoy it. πŸ™‚

  5. Hi Sarah, how do we get it delivered to India? Any idea?

    • Hallo Shweta πŸ™‚

      The book will be up on Amazon within a few days. Do they deliver to India? I’ll forward the question to Richard Hamilton, at XML Press, to see if he has any more information for you.
      Cheers, Sarah

    • Hallo again Shweta

      Good news from Richard. The book will be available on They seem to have fair prices and inexpensive/free shipping to many parts of India. Do you know much about them?

      We expect that they will have the book at about the same time as Amazon gets it.

      Cheers, Sarah

      • I do order a lot of books from Flipkart! Best service in India. I searched there the other day but could not find you book. Maybe it will come in a dew days. Flipkart offers best deals and error-free delivery πŸ™‚ I am happy πŸ™‚

  6. Hey Sarah!
    Cannot preorder the book on the Barnes & Noble Web site. The book is flagged as “not currently available”, there is no way to preorder it. Is it because I’m ordering it from France ?

    • Hallo Vincent
      Hmm, I get the same error. I suspect it may be that the pre-order period is over but the printer has not yet made the copies available. I’ve asked the publisher, and I’ll get back to you when I know more.
      Thanks for letting me know!
      Cheers, Sarah
