My book is out

Mastering phpBB Administration, by Mark D. Hamill

My book, Mastering phpBB Administration, is available for Kindle downloading. The cost is $9.99. I hope to offer a paperback version soon. I’m new to publishing, so this is a learning experience. Bear with me.

It’s truly chock full of information and basically a brain dump of everything I’ve been doing for 14 years in the phpBB field. It’s meant for phpBB administrators, i.e. my clients. You may not need to hire me if you read it instead. That was certainly its goal. Of course, I’m always available for hire if you prefer me to do the grunt work.
