After lots of delays, my book has finally gone on sale. It's up on Amazon at the moment and I'm chatting to a publisher/distributor about getting it into some shops in the future. It's quite specialised so it's probably best to sell it online for now but we'll see how it goes :-). At the moment, it's a good old-fashioned paper book rather than electronic. There are a number of piracy issues when you put it out there electronically so I'll have to have a think about whether I want to go down that road later. Anyway, it's been a lot of hard work but it's great to finally see it in print. There are very few books about trading out there so hopefully there's a market for it.
