Well, work on book 2 is well underway, 46 pages down, 150 to go 🙂 The title you say? Wait and see!
Book 1 – How to Rebuild and Restore Classic Japanese Motorcycles
In October 2014 I submitted my final manuscript for a motorcycle restoration book to Motorbooks International for publication. The final few months were busy and full on trying to finish it by the deadline, nearly a year later its on the book shelves!
I have set up a web site specifically for marketing my first book at http://sidyoung.com/
As soon as I received book #1 I found errors, some are layout errors but on pages 175 and 176 the block diagrams of the charging system are wrong, the earth is shown as (+) but should be negative and the (-) terminal should be positive! and its on 3 pictures! I will make sure they fix this on the next print run. I also found a cover photo is described as a “Honda z1”, but this should be “Kawasaki Z1”. I will also put an errata section on the main web site.
The book is now available world-wide.
The book is being printed!
December – January 2015 Update
The book is in final layout stage prior to me approving it for publication.
October/November 2014 Update
First revisions back from the publisher but basically very good and on its way through the publishing process. Cheques in the mail… apparently 😉
September 2014 Update
Final chapter assembly and photography is in progress for October deadline.
June 2014 Update – The book will be published by Motorbooks in Spring 2015.
I will be placing links to eBook versions here and to both the Publishers site and Amazon.com when they become available.
