Hi Paul,  I appreciate your comment and you're right I'm new to the forum but hopefully I can get some valuable feedback here from the community on my book and give something back in return.  My Indiegogo campaign may not take off but it would be good to hear what people thought of what they see so far.  Many thanks in advance.

In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, however in practice there are many...

To make this a reality and to make the book affordable I need to print at least 1,000 copies.  I could have gone down the traditional route of finding a publisher but I felt a better option would be to take control from the start and make sure the book goes to those who want it.

If you do not get it funded you can publish your book through Lulu.com which do publishing on demand. They will print even 1 copy if you want to for a fair price!.  I like their business model very much, check their website for the details. imho for books a far better option than crowd funding.

What I saw on the Indiegogo pages looks quite good. Can you tell what type of customer you are aiming at?

PS, I like the "volume one" on the cover smiley-wink

Hi Robtillaart, I'm aware of Lulu so could be an option if Indiegogo doesn't work. 

The 'first' book is aimed at easing people into the Arduino world but I think would also be useful for those with more experience (includes tables for connections/pin outs etc that I still use for reference).  'Volume One' was intentional as I'm already working on a more advanced volume two that a novice couldn't really pick up straight away. 

Many thanks for the comments so far and please give me more feedback as I want to make this something that people really want to engage with.
