Here’s your chance to be semi-famous.
If you would like to be mentioned in the “Acknowledgments” section of my forthcoming Excel 2007 Bible book, make a comment here, along with the reason why you’re being acknowledged.
For example: “I’d like to thank Joe Blow, who taught me the true meaning of Swiss cheese.” Or, “Special thanks to Rita, who really liked the cover of the Excel 2003 edition.” Or, “I’m deeply indebted to Ron, who taught me to scroll a worksheet using only my nose.”
In other words, be creative. Be funny. Or be serious. Use your real name, your screen name, or a completely fake name (but don’t use the namedd of a well-known person).
I think the publisher will let me make it as long as I want. It’s my big chance to write a non-boring, off-the-wall Acknowledgments section.
What’s in it for you? You’ll be able to walk into into any major bookstore, find the book with the best book cover design ever, and say, “Hey look, I’m semi-famous.”
