It's a noisy world, so the best way to keep you informed is to send you a message directly. I've got some great stuff on the way, and I'd love you to be the first to hear about it.

Word of mouth is hugely important for books today, too, so I'd really appreciate it if you were able to pass the newsletter on to friends when there's something you think would interest them.

Sign up for updates about:

  • My new books on coding, web design and other topics
  • New articles and tutorials, such as new Raspberry Pi projects
  • Special offers, competitions, and opportunities to receive review copies of books
  • ... and more!

Thank you for your support - it is much appreciated!
