There’s a nice review of Smashing WordPress Themes available over at Theme.fm, a fairly new but promising WordPress site. You should check it out, and not only for their great taste in review material this early on!

I’m happy to let you all know that the preliminary report of the Smashing WordPress Themes: Making WordPress Beautiful sales for February are over 1,500 copies. That’s pretty good, a better start than the first edition of Smashing WordPress: Beyond the Blog got anyway.
Speaking of which, I’m surprised to see that Beyond the Blog continues to sell well over 500 copies monthly. The book is over a year old and the second edition is due in April, so I urge you to pick up Smashing WordPress Themes instead, or hold off until the Smashing WordPress: Beyond the Blog, 2nd Edition in April. More on that one here. Read more →

Have you reviewed, or seen a review, of any of my books? As I’m writing this, that would be either Smashing WordPress: Beyond the Blog (the first edition) or Smashing WordPress Themes: Making WordPress Beautiful. Be sure to send me a link to your review so that I can link it from here. Thanks!

I spoke to the big boss man editor at my publisher (Wiley) today, and he told me that the advance copy of Smashing WordPress Themes looked great. Apparently there are some on my way here right now. Can’t wait! It’s out next week in the US.

I think I’m allowed to talk about this now. If not, tough luck.
There will be a second edition of my highly popular, critically acclaimed, bestselling, insert-pr-speak-here book, Smashing WordPress: Beyond the Blog. The manuscript is in the hands of my editors as we speak, and those of you stalking me on Twitter or Facebook can finally rest easy knowing that this is what I’ve been working on the past few weeks.
I’ve added Smashing WordPress: Beyond the Blog, 2nd Edition to my books page, but there’s not much else going on over there right now. Expect it to be bigger, better, more up to date, and hopefully better syntaxed by the people doing that stuff as well. Obviously this is the version they’ll be translating when launching the book in Portuguese.
Smashing WordPress: Beyond the Blog, 2nd Edition is tentatively slated for release in April 2011.

There’s been some concern about the release date of my upcoming book, Smashing WordPress Themes: Making WordPress Beautiful, since some online retailers (I’m looking at you, Amazon) have been reporting March launch dates. This is entirely inaccurate and is due to some technical glitch between the publisher’s systems and Amazon’s.
Smashing WordPress Themes: Making WordPress Beautiful is due January 24th in the US, and a few weeks later in the UK. If you live in Europe, but not in the UK, then the book might very well reach you prior to the UK release, at least that was the case with Smashing WordPress: Beyond the Blog.

My upcoming book Smashing WordPress Themes: Making WordPress Beautiful is the next part in the Smashing series covering WordPress. It is a natural follow-up to my previous book, Smashing WordPress: Beyond the Blog.
I just wanted to share the Smashing WordPress Themes cover with you guys real quick, so here it is!

The Smashing WordPress Themes book is obviously the one solution for all your theming needs, but even if you don’t feel advanced enough as a user to build themes from the ground up yourself you can benefit. You see, in the wake of the book three new themes will be released. One is called Simple Pfolio and I thought I’d post a screenshot snapped sometime along the road.
It is a 3.0+ theme and will be available for free soon enough. For now, this is all you’ll get.
