My First Book is Really Done!

MCTS 70-631 Study Guide

  • I turned in my last chapter in early June, but it didn’t seem real.
  • I finished reviewing the proof pages at the end of July, but I still wasn’t convinced.
  • I created ancillary material to promote the book two weeks ago, and I thought maybe I was done
  • But when I got home from teaching this week and found a copy of my new book had been delivered by the publisher it finally sank in.

  I’m a published author!


I’ve contributed chapters to books for a number of years now and I’ve always wanted to have at least one with my name on the cover.  I’ve started on books of my own at least twice before, but circumstances always interfered and I wasn’t able to finish them.  This year I promised myself would be different and I’m happy to say it is.  I spend the first 6 months of the year co-writing a study guide for the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 MCTS exam (70-631).  The book will be on store shelves October 19, 2009, just in time for the SharePoint Conference in Vegas.  You can also order it direct from Amazon. If you haven’t certified on WSS yet, pick up a copy of the book and bring it with you to Vegas.  You can find me in the Mindsharp booth in the vendor area.  I’ll be PROUD to sign your book.

I works as a consultant/trainer where my breadth of knowledge makes me ideally suited to combine Administrative, Development, and SharePoint Designer topics. My 20+ years of experience and broad background make me a much sought after resource for SharePoint questions that cross traditional boundaries. I was a contributing author to the Developer's Guide to Windows SharePoint Services v3 Platform and the SharePoint Server 2007 Deployment Best Practices. My most recent book, the MCTS Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 Configuration Study Guide: Exam 70-631, was released in October, 2009.
