Writing a Book with Packt

This summer and fall I had the opportunity to write “Refactoring with C#”, a technical book on C# development, through Packt Publishing.

When I considered doing this project in the spring there wasn’t much out there on what it’s like to be an author with Packt, so I thought I’d share my experience writing the book for those considering it in the future. Please note that this is focused just on the writing process. I’m deliberately not covering the proposal and outlining phases as I plan to write a separate article on that topic.
