With the Early Adopter series by Wrox they'll sometimes let you get away
without a picture. I wouldn't worry too much about being on the cover,
though. When I bought one at the bookstore with my picture on it, I was
expecting a comment from the cashier, but she didn't even notice. I don't
think that anyone really does. On the other hand, I always thought that if
I had a website I wouldn't put my picture on it because that would be too
public, but now that doesn't matter because the picture of the book is even
on the German amazon.com. Again, I don't think anyone really takes a close
Of course, after reading your feelings about being on the cover, I'll
probably take a very close look at your picture and laugh when you write a
book for Wrox. : )

Subject: RE: [xml-dev] XML Schema WROX Book
Y'all be welcome! I was at B&N thumbing through
books at lunch. Even when one has done this stuff,
a good book illuminates the corners, and because one
doesn't do it often, one needs the retraining.
XML is increasingly turning into a framework
that requires specialization. I guess someone
will take up the problem of a book on XML schema
languages in general showing how and when to apply
each, limits and advantages, even how to build up
a schema language based on one of the others.
My problem with ever being a Wrox author is the
picture on the cover. No way!

Don't know if any of the other authors, editors or reviewers are on list
right now - I should probably be the last to answer since my two
chapters were the first I've had published, but just in case - thanks,
Len, for that.
