Help me write the outline for my next book. This is your big chance to decide what goes into a Perl book that you'll buy.
Since we finished Intermediate Perl, I've been working on a proposal for the next book, tentatively called Mastering Perl, which will be the next in progression from Perl newbie and full practitioner.
I'm going to run the process much like Mark Jason Dominus did for Higher Order Perl. Instead of locking myself in a coffee-shop for six months then showing you the result, everyone can take part at all stages. I don't have more than the page and a mailing list at the moment, but I am working on the book and will add things as I get them going.
I was going to get a lot of work done until the holidays got in the way, but at least I have the Mastering Perl page where you can read the current draft proposal in all its still-being-revised glory and shame. For those of you who don't know what happens at this point in a book'e life, you'll also find a link to O'Reilly's "So You Want to Write a Book" that explains the work that goes into convincing the more business-minded people that not only is your idea a good one, but that enough people will buy it.
