An Indie Book Publishing Journey - We Hit #1 on Amazon with "iOS App Development for Non-Programmers Book 1: Diving In!"
I'll be sharing more details of our book series journey when I get back to the U.S. (I'm in Istanbul this week for a speaking engagement at the webit conference), but I'm very surprised and amazed to see Book 1: Diving in reach the #1 spot on Amazon in the following categories:
Books > Computers & Technology > Apple
Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Nonfiction > Computers & Internet > Programming
And we event hit #2 in the broader Books > Computers & Technology > Programming
I'll share some of the keys that got us to this place in future posts, but just wanted to share the great news for now. This book series is self-published and self-promoted, so that makes the achievement even more gratifying (especially given the amount of money traditional publishers have earned from my books over the years).
It's gratifying to read emails from new readers each day who are excited to finally learn how to create iOS Apps.
