Whether you're thinking about self-publishing, working with a traditional publisher, or exploring other options, deciding whether or not it makes sense to devote 2,000 hours of your life to writing a technical book is non-trivial question. Pearson Technology Group Executive Editor Gregory Doench will present an overview of the challenges and opportunities facing authors and publishers today. Starting with a snapshot of current market conditions, he will discuss critical success factors, as well as review mistakes and pitfalls to avoid. In addition, the seven questions you need to ask yourself before starting to write a book will also be explored.

He will be joined by Pearson colleagues Jennifer Bortel and Kim Boedigheimer for a Q&A session for anybody who would like to learn more about working with InformIT.com and Addison-Wesley.
