The New Dragonwing

The big news is that Dragonwing has been reformulated as a publishing house rather than a tent-making operation. I'm still the sole proprietor, but we're now focusing on publishing books on various topics. We've already got The Pavilion Book and we'll be adding On The Bus later this year. On The Bus is my book on Volkswagen buses, and it will be out in both paperback and eBook formats.

Although Dragonwing has now closed its tentmaking operations, you'll still be able to get my book, The Pavilion Book, although no longer directly from me. These vendors will be happy to provide you with copies:

The print version of The Pavilion Book has returned to Amazon, this time in a print-on-demand format at the same price as before. Information can be found here. The book is also available as an eBook from Amazon; you can find it here. and the price of the eBook has been reduced to $10.00 to put in in line with other electronic publications.

More information on The Pavilion Book can be found by clicking here.

The scheduled release of this book is November 12, where it will be released in both paperback and e-book form. More information can be found by clicking this link.
As for the web site itself, it will be undergoing a few changes over the next month, but all the information on tentmaking will still be there. It's been a real resource for many people, and I wouldn't want to deprive those who continue to rely on it. What's new will be information on some of the other writing I've been doing, and the books that will be coming out.

Our latest column describes how to set up a sunshade for drying, in a much smaller area than would usually be required.
