Update on Windows 10 Field Guide

I’ve gotten a lot of questions about the Windows 10 Field Guide, which is certainly understandable. So here’s an apology for the delays, and an explanation of what’s happening.

First, work on the book progresses, though the timing of this year’s home swap coincidental with the re-scheduled Windows 10 launch was of course unfortunate, and has certainly slowed things considerably. Right now, I’ve got well over 200 pages written in Word, including figures, and my expectation that this book will be a far more manageable size (~400 pages) than was its predecessor, Windows 8.1 Field Guide (~600 pages).

As you may know I’ve been experimenting with digital publishing for more than a few years now, and the Windows book is the only one I/we have ever charged for. With Windows 8.1 Field Guide, we decided to charge very little for the book (just $2, a ludicrous amount of money) with the hope of attracting as many readers as possible. That didn’t pan out: we made no more on that book than we did on Windows 8 Secrets, our last (and final) print book, which probably retailed for about $29.99 or whatever. Long story short, creating these books isn’t financially viable. I make a lot more money just keeping my site updated.

But I do love books. And I do enjoy the notion of this thing that can collect the valuable how-to information about Windows into a single place. I have always felt like the book could be the reference and the site could be where information gets pushed out most quickly, if in a more scattered fashion.

There are other challenges.

Our content has been stolen repeatedly, despite the low cost. Other sites have offered the book for free, and recently one site even charged for readers for this and others of my e-books, including Windows 10 Field Guide, which I’ve not even published anywhere. Since this site is hosted on Azure, I’ve alerted Microsoft. They’re moving very slowly to correct this problem. Too slowly.

With the previous book, we handled payments ourselves, taking both Amazon and PayPal. This has been an epic disaster, leading us to seek an alternative for the new book. Some people have actually challenged the $2 sale through their credit card companies, a transaction that is costly for us to fight, even though not a single person who complained about this charge ever reached out to us personally. My guess is that they didn’t recognize the charge and just challenged it, not realizing how much this hurts us. But it’s happened several times.

So we keep adjusting, and thinking about how we can present this content differently, or more efficiently.

For Windows 10 Field Guide, there have been a few changes as a result of these and other issues.

First, I’ve not been writing the pre-release version of the book publicly as I did with the previous book. I had sort of hoped some egalitarian system of feedback loop would arise naturally, but it never did. Yes, some readers are always great about supplying feedback, but most aren’t. And that’s fine. But rather than waste time pumping out pre-release book versions, I decided just to write. And perhaps add to the book more transparently once Windows 10 was out.

Second, the pricing has to go up and fairly dramatically, though not the level of retail books. I’m thinking variable pricing with the lowest possible price at $10, and the recommended price at $15. This is too much work to just give away, and while I haven’t really show this off yet, one of the neat new additions to this book is an awesome poster and a series of amazing reference sheet inserts from Martin McClean of Posterpedia fame. Martin has also made all of the wonderful Field Guide book covers, including of course the new one for Windows 10 Field Guide.

Third, we don’t want to handle payments ourselves. This lead us to Leanpub, which seemed like an ideal venue for us because they handle payments automatically. The trouble is, Leanpub paradoxically can’t handle Word documents natively, and they instead use an arcane and, sadly, writer-unfriendly system based on Markdown. Their site talks up Word conversion, but it’s garbage and hard to work with, and as of today I have yet to see a finished document that in any way corresponds to the quality I can achieve—in PDF, ePub or MOBI form—on my own. This is hugely disappointing, and we’ve spent the past week working through this issue.

Whenever we do get the first, unfinished version of this book out, I will make Windows 8.1 Field Guide available for free to anyone that wants it.

But with regards to the schedule for Windows 10 Field Guide, the original intent was for the book to ship day and date, in complete form, with Windows 10. Which was of course originally going to ship in October. This was plenty of time and wouldn’t impact my normal annual home swap, which takes place roughly the first three weeks of August each year.

But when Microsoft changed the date to late July, I knew I was sunk, and there was no way to meet that date. So my new plan was to ship an incomplete book on July 29, with the idea being that it would include the most important information for upgraders. However, there was a ton of new information about upgrading and clean installs that week, as you may recall. So I figured I’d get it out a week or so after the July 29 launch.

What I hadn’t anticipated was the absolute shitstorm of issues readers would have over the first week or two after Windows 10 launched. Between the traveling—we also had friends visit here in France for 10 days and went on a side-trip to Venice—and all that additional work, it just wasn’t possible.

Since then, it’s been an almost hilarious laundry list of excuses that include coming down with a cold, getting food poisoning, and now the most recent issues with Leanpub. I had expected to ship the book, and several updates, by now. But so far, nothing.

That will change soon, I hope. I will keep plugging away with writing, and Rafael in particular has been key in working around the weirdisms in Leanpub, so we should be there soon. The nine-hour time difference between here (France) and PST, where Rafael lives, has been problematic of course. But once the book is out, I’ll keep updating it until it’s “done,” after which I’ll just keep updating it as Windows 10 is updated.

But man, what a mess of bad timing and bad luck.

Surface Pro 3 Field Guide 0.09

Another long wait, another small update. Sorry for that. But here is a new version of Surface Pro 3 Field Guide that includes some Pen content and some missing figures. I still need to get Displays, Troubleshooting, and some introductory material done, and will try to keep this one under 100 pages.

More soon.

It has again been forever and a day since the last update to Surface Pro 3 Field Guide, sorry. But I'd like to get this one done so I can start focusing on bigger Windows 10-related things. So I will try to do so: The new plan is for Surface Pro 3 Field Guide to be a free book that will be under 100 pages, and for us to continue charging only for the big Windows books. More on that soon.

This update to Surface Pro 3 Field Guide includes a short chapter on the Docking Station.

Thinking About the Windows 10 Field Guide

I spent some time discussing Windows 10 Field Guide with both Rafael Rivera and Martin McClean during my trip to Redmond for last week's Windows 10 event. And I think I have a rough plan for how to proceed with this new book.

This one is important, and I want to get it right. I feel like the approach of covering the truly new stuff in Windows 8.1 Field Guide was a good idea in isolation but it resulted in a long book that covered a lot of material—mostly around the Modern apps—that was perhaps too basic. So in the interests of creating a shorter and valuable new book, I have two proposals.

Ignore the obvious. Yes, the Modern and universal apps in Windows 10 will be new to many people, but much of their functionality is obvious. So instead of covering every single feature in every single app, the book will instead work within the confines of its tagline—"the quickest way to get it done"—and present only the tips, tricks and information about each of these apps that is not immediately obvious to most people. There's actually precedent for this approach, too: The MSN Apps + Maps chapter uses this approach. That will be the approach for all the bundled apps chapters in the new book.

More desktop, power use and technical content. With Windows 10 marking the return to the desktop, we have an opportunity to apply the approach above to expanded coverage of the desktop (and of course tablet/hybrid usage) and to more technical content too. I'm looking forward to stepping away from the 101 stuff: By this point, anyone coming to this book should know the basics of using Windows on a computer. We will assume that.

There are some other issues to figure out—pricing, for example, as I'm worried that we undervalued the book last time, though I would like to keep things affordable—and also how Windows 10 will impact my/our coverage of phones. My current thinking on that is that Windows 10 Field Guide will focus on tablets, detachables and PCs, whereas a sequel to Windows Phone 8 Field Guide—whatever it's called—will focus on phones, phablets and small tablets. I'll know more as I write more and as Windows 10 evolves.

For now, I'm going to get started writing Windows 10 Field Guide. Starting with the flight home today, I'm going to focus at first on digestible topics—maybe Maps, which has a nice finite look to it—and see whether this approach makes sense. I think it will, but we'll see more.

More soon.

Surface Pro 3 Field Guide 0.07

It's been forever since the last update to Surface Pro 3 Field Guide but I'm back on the job. There are a number of changes here, including a new chapter/section on Type Cover. But I've decided to remove all of the Windows 8.1 content—which would have been excerpted from Windows 8.1 Field Guide anyway—because it will be harder to keep that in sync with the big book as things change. Also I've started updating the Before You Start chapter/section to match changes to the Microsoft Account web site (as I had to do with Windows Phone 8.1 Field Guide previously), but there's more to be done there.

With this book newly—and correctly, I think—focused only on the Surface hardware, accessories, and Surface-specific software and services, I think I can wrap this one up pretty quickly now. Which I feel really good about.

More soon.

Field Guide Books: where we're at

The great experiment in e-book publishing will continue in 2015, though there will be some major changes to this site and, perhaps, some changes to how we sell/giveaway the books. In the meantime, here's a quick step back to see where we're at.

There are four fully-completed Field Guide books so far: Windows 8.1 Field Guide, Windows Phone 8 Field Guide, Microsoft Band Field Guide and Xbox Music Field Guide.

Likewise, there are two Field Guide books in active development, though neither are close to final release: Surface Pro 3 Field Guide and Windows Phone 8.1 Field Guide

Surface Pro 3 Field Guide and Windows Phone 8.1 Field Guide will not be free when completed, but they are free during this initial pre-release writing period. At some point, we'll get them behind a pay wall, but you can assume they will be inexpensive.

Looking forward, there are a number of books I'd like to write. The big one for 2015, of course, will be Windows 10 Field Guide, though based on what we hear at the Windows 10 event this month, I could see splitting it into two or more books (perhaps Windows 10 Field Guide for PCs and Windows 10 Field Guide for Phones and Tablets, or whatever).

But let's not get ahead of ourselves. Surface Pro 3 Field Guide and Windows Phone 8.1 Field Guide aren't going to write themselves. So I will finish those first.

Thanks for reading. --Paul

Windows Phone 8.1 Field Guide 0.05

Here is a long-over update to Windows Phone 8.1 Field Guide that represents a bit of a restart of this project. There are a number of changes.

First, the book version number has changed so that this version is 0.05, and not 0.5; it's going to take more than 10 versions to get this book complete, obviously.

Because so much has changed, not just with Windows Phone OS, but with the Lumia handset and third party device ranges and even the Microsoft Account web site online, I've gone back to the beginning of the book and started reediting everything. So this update is mostly about a revamped version of the Before You Start chapter.

More soon: I'm going to try and bang out more updates to existing content and then move forward. I'll likely do the same with Surface Pro 3 Field Guide too.

This is a small update to the book in some ways, but I've read through the entire manuscript looking for problems and things to add or fix. As with previous updates, incomplete sections are marked with "*****" so you can see what's left to write. The table of contents has been updated too.

I will also update the document style to more closely resemble the other books. But it looks like this one is finally wrapping up, so I can turn my attention back to Surface Pro 3 Field Guide and Windows Phone 8.1 Field Guide. (And then eventually Windows 10 Field Guide).

This update adds or completes a number of sections, including content about keeping Band safe, connecting other apps, and more.

I'll be able to bump it up to version 1.0 soon, I think.
