Upcoming Projects

I just wanted to give a quick update on my projects that are underway (upcoming book, SFC models development). These projects are keeping me busy, and so I will probably not have regular posts for at least a few days.

Abolish Money (From Economics)!

I am not going to curse myself by giving any dates, but the next book is in its final stages. I did not plan things out very well, so I will be launching the ebook versions first, and then the paperback edition will follow a month later (or so I hope).

The longer publishing time for the paperback edition reflects the need to view a physical proof of the book. (It takes time to set up the paperback, as there are slight differences in format, such as the paperback edition having figure captions and references. I also need to create an index for the paperback edition; the reader can use the search function in an ebook.)

One thing to keep in mind: if you purchase the paperback edition on Amazon, can can download the Kindle version for free as well (the "book matching" programme). This means that if you know someone who is also interested in getting my book, one person could buy the paperback, keep the Kindle version, and pass along the paperback to the other.

I will have more information when the ebook version is ready.

SFC Models

I have started work on the next book already. The working title is "Introduction to SFC Models Using Python."

I will keep that book brief; I want it to be a minimal amount of documentation that allows the reader to start building simple SFC models using my Python sfc_models framework. Since the audience includes people who know more about the theory of SFC models, but do not know much about Python, I will not spend a lot of time explaining the theory of SFC models. Instead, the book will explain the architecture of the framework, and how to use it.

In later books, I hope to cover the economic theory behind SFC models.

I started working on the text, but my main efforts have been developing the code. I launched another programming blitz, and the development branch of sfc_models has advanced a lot. There were a lot of "quality of life" improvements that will make it easier to add new economic functionality.

As a result, expect to see a lot of articles on SFC models over the coming months; this will be draft text for the book.
