Success Stories :: Publishing

  • Sev­er­al years ago, O’Reilly Media approached me to write an irrev­er­ent book detail­ing var­i­ous ways to safe­ly buy and sell on eBay. The result was Don’t Get Burned on eBay: How to Avoid Scams and Escape Bad Deals, which blend­ed pop cul­ture and humor with real-life sto­ries from eBay’s user forums in the U.S. and abroad. The book is now in its sec­ond print­ing with a 5-star rat­ing on Ama­zon.
  • O’Reilly also hired me as a tech­ni­cal review­er for eBay: The Miss­ing Man­u­al by Nan­cy Con­ner; this involved review­ing chap­ter drafts for accu­ra­cy of infor­ma­tion and mak­ing cor­rec­tions as nec­es­sary.
