A major update is coming soon for my book, Professional Email Design.
Come August 15th, you'll be able to get your hands on the second version, which includes updates and new chapters on topics like accessibility in email, different approaches to layout, targeting email clients, CSS animations, and interactivity. I'm also recording a ton of videos to accompany the book, walking you through all of the topics discussed (and maybe a few more, too).
If you've already bought a copy—or if you buy one between now and the release date—you'll receive a free update to the book along with a discount for the videos. Everyone else will have the opportunity to buy the book by itself or as part of a package with the videos. I'm still working on pricing, but will announce that when it's ready.
Speaking of book updates, my friend Chad White just released the third edition of his classic, Email Marketing Rules. I routinely recommend this book to folks at conferences and think everyone even tangentially involved with email should read it. Grab your copy today.
Another friend, Ted Goas, wrote up some great thoughts on how to think about leadership (especially when you don't want to take on a leadership role). This has been kicking around in my brain for a while, so I'm glad Ted put something in writing. He explains it better than I could.
Anyone who knows me knows that I love plain text for writing most things. Plain text is outrageously useful. Now, there's a movement to make it the defacto medium for the education world. Love it.
Going to start pointing everyone here when they ask why I don't use Facebook.
