There are several chances to meet the author of Securing SQL Server, ask questions, and get your copy of the book signed. These include (and are subject to change):
Dallas Tech Fest – August 13th, 2011
SQL PASS – October 11-14, 2011
SQL Saturday 95 – September 17th, 2011
SQL Excursions – May 17-19, 2012
I hope to see you at one (or all) of these great events. Feel free to bring your copy and get it signed making it a priceless collectable (OK, probably not but I do love signing copies).
Thanks to Amazon, now you can rent Securing SQL Server for 30 days, and if you like it you can buy it with the cost of the rental being applied to the cost to buy the digital copy of the book. This is all done through Amazon’s new ebook rental program for text books (which they have marked my book as being). So now you can rent the book starting at a little over 1/2 the current price of the book which gives you access to the entire book for 30 days. After the 30 days is up you can extend your rental or purchase with the initial rental price counting towards your new price (you pay the difference).
As an author I’m not sure how I feel about this, good I guess because it gives people a chance to give the book a try. As a reader I like this because I can try the book for less, and if I like it keep it. If it doesn’t serve me any purpose I don’t need to keep it, and it only cost be 1/2 the cash to find out.
You don’t need to have a Kindle to make use of this, just the Kindle app installed on your PC, phone, iPad, etc.
