Programmer's Paradise Articles?


I believe you mentioned that you would be writing a column in the Programmers Paradise catalogs?  Are you still doing that? and if so, What month will you start?  I've recieved the January and February issues and have'nt seen an article by you.  (Maybe I'm just blind.)  Look forward to seeing your column in there.

The first one will be in the issue that gets mailed February 1.

After dealing with that crowd over 10+ years, I advise you to get paid up front.  If you are battering the article for placement in the catalog and using them as a re-seller ...

well ...

hohoho.  Good luck.  Been there, done that.  These guys once took 9 months to cut us a check for $54, and I am not kidding. You will make slightly less than zero dollars on the deal.

BTW, if they insist on 40-50% discount, offer them 25% and watch them bite ... or else walk away.  Been there and done that too.

I  think I meant "bartering" and not "battering".
