Okay folks, as a person who loves and reads their eBooks, I'm delighted to finally announce that I've joined the rank of Craft and Vision authors. It's been a few months in the process and it's been great to write again with a deadline and to a purpose. Some of you may be familiar with my first print book 'Photoshop Lightroom 2 Made Easy', so I'm glad to have had the opportunity to write once again. 


Enough of that. Essential Development is a 20 chapter book that goes through the hows and how to's of Lightroom 4's Develop module. It starts with the Histogram and works through loads of the Develop module. It's not a comprehensive look at Develop, but rather a look at specific tools and their practical uses. 


Topics range from Black and White, to HDR Processing, covering things like Toning, Cross Processing & Tilt Shift in the interim. There's also a look at Beauty Retouch in Lightroom and Dodge and Burn for Beauty. 


There's also a package version that comes with set of presets I've called the Toolbox. It all makes sense if you read the book. It mixes building blocks with finished look Presets. It's also cheaper than most Presets already, plus you get a 125 page book included!


As an author, you await the reviews with bated breath. I enjoyed writing it, and the editing process was relatively painless. Hopefully we caught all the typos! 

Craft and Vision have an opening offer on the book:

The retail price on this incredible package is USD $7, but for the next six days, use the promotional code DEVELOP6 when you check out so you can have the Essential Development Package (incl. the Toolbox of 85 Lightroom presets) for just $6 OR use the code DEVELOP20 to get 20% off when you buy 5+ PDF eBooks from the Craft & Vision collection. These codes expire at 11:59pm PST October 23, 2012.

So what are you waiting for? Head over to Craft and Vision for a look, and buy, buy, buy!
