I've decided to write a short blog-type post every week here on this forum. These posts are exclusive to this forum, and they will primarily be about the writing of the book.

Many of the diagrams that I drew (using Google Draw) are slowly being replaced by professional line art, created by an illustrator from Manning. Below is a preview (in the book, it's figure 7.23).

I like the new art. It's another sign that the book is nearing the finish line.

I have looked at copy edits for ten chapters so far. Ten more to go, and things will really start to feel done.

Thanks everyone for reading and checking in. There won't be a post next week, due to the US holiday Memorial Day. The next time I write, I hope to report that I'm finished with the copy edits!
