Book Projects: Winter and Spring 2015

I completed four books last winter and spring — enough to keep me too busy to update my website! Here are the Amazon links for the books, along with a brief description of what each covers. These links are affiliate links.

Spring 2015:

Drones For DummiesDrones For Dummies, by Mark LaFay, is for readers interested in hobby drones. It provides pre- and post-flight checklists, which should prove handy for drone users of all experience levels. Mark gives readers all the information they need to stay abreast of the ever-changing FAA regulations, too.

Minecraft Modding For Kids For DummiesMinecraft Modding For Kids For Dummies, by Sarah Guthal, PhD; Stephen Foster, PhD; and Lindsey Handley, is aimed at kids who want to program within the popular game Minecraft. Kids learn how to respawn players, build portals, create an archery range, and much more. There’s plenty of art in this full-color book, too. Development and copy editor was Becky Whitney; I served as project manager.

Winter 2015:

The Internet For Dummies 14eThe Internet For Dummies, 14th edition, by John R. Levine and Margaret Levine Young, is the 14th edition of one of my favorite For Dummies franchises. The Internet For Dummies helps readers get connected to the Internet, pick the web browser that works best for them, set up email, join social media sites, and stream music and video on their PC or mobile device. The book covers the practical and fun uses for the Internet.

Minecraft For DummiesMinecraft For Dummies, by Jesse Stay, Thomas Stay, and Jacob Cordeiro, covers all you need to know to get up and running with the popular game Minecraft. Readers learn how to survive their first night, mine, cook, defeat mobs, build redstone contraptions, and much more. This is a full-color book with loads of great art. It’s a great springboard to Minecraft Modding For Kids For Dummies.
