As of this week I am a published technical author.
As a result of my speaking at Michigan Google Developers DevFest in April of 2013, I met Godfrey Nolan, who was also speaking at the event. In June he invited me to contribute to his upcoming book. The result is Android Best Practices, published by Apress. I contributed the chapter on Web Services. I am honored that Godfrey chose me, and I am pleased with the result. I got my physical copy of the book yesterday, it was published officially on the 14th.
