Thank you. That´s quite impressive.

It takes me usually weeks to extract the most important information from a book into chessbase, but of course I cannot work on it full time due to other duties.  Wink


Ah, but presumably you're having to copy everything "long hand", so to speak? Whereas I have the actual typeset, which means I can highlight/copy from that and paste it directly into CB files. Smiley

Just out of curiosity: How long does it take you to convert a 400 (?) page book into an ebook?


It depends what state the initial CB files are in really. In this case, I did a fair bit of work while editing the book, so it shouldn't take more than 3 or 4 days. Whereas the huge Kasparov books, starting with no CB files at all, could take a fortnight.

No excerpt up so won't be anytime too soon


well, I'm creating the ebook now, so I'm guessing the hard copy won't be too long Smiley

I think the Everyman page has the new date being March for Europe. Does that sound likely?


If it's gone to print by now, then yes.

Any updates on the ETA?


It's just back from Junior with his final amendments. So I guess it'll be going to print pretty soon now. Smiley

It'll be a bit later than that still, since I won't have finished editing it before January.

Certainly. It probably won't even have gone to print by then.

Cry

Amazon had 1st January which is where i got the date from, but i noticed after i posted that the everyman site i think it was had it down as 18th. Although, by the sounds of it that date will also be a bit ambitious?

Just seen on Everyman site that the Move by Move Schliemann book originally due from Collins is now being written by Junior Tay and due out in October this year. (UK)
