So... What Did the New Beekeeping for Dummies say about US?
« on: March 06, 2009, 04:47:09 PM »
I received 2 emails today both asking the same thing, what did the new Beekeeping for Dummies book actually say about Beemaster International Forums, so here it is.

Here is the full quote in the HELPFUL RESOURCES section about Beemaster Forums:

Bee Master Forum
www.beemaster.com

A popular International Beekeeping Forum designed to entertain and educate anyone with an interest in bees or beekeeping. Here you can share images, send messages, participate in live voice forums. This secure site is moderated and is completely family friendly. It was created and is maintained by hobbyisy beekeeper John Clayton (who also took MANY of the images in this book).

Sweet and to the point, it does point the readers to my home page but a huge link there will get them to the forum and another to my online learning section. It does cover family friendly and moderated and International and voice chat, so all and all - not bad :)

In the HELPFUL RESOURCES sections, many sites are listed, it is a good reference to anyone searching beekeeping sites and a nice improvement over the first Edition of the book.

Yay, yay, yay, go, go, go.........beautiful.  Have that great and wonderful day, Cindi

What about the new cover image?  Did they keep your old one or did they choose one of the forum members'?

Sean:

It is interesting (cover wise) I submitted originallt about 100 photos, many that Howland and I had purposely staged for the book and many photos that I had which I though he may have had use for.

I DO HAVE CREDIT a second time here for the cover photo, but I cannot honestly say that it was anything that stuck out like the first image (which I knew the second I took it would be the cover) the only recognizable feature is the flat lens of my olympus macro lens I used for all the photos.

Then, the cover from the forst edition is now in the COLOR center section which I didn't have a color image in the first edition of the book. So, I got recognised as the cover artist in both books, although the 2nd edition image is more generic and could have been taken by anyone, I assume at Whiley Publishing they keep good records and had this photo onfile and correctly accredited to me :)

The myster female member photo is tough to pick out, there are a few names which could be either male or female and the listing of photo credits are done on a single page EXCEPT for the color shots.

So I don't know the ladies names, hopefully someone will read the book and know who it is then.

Note: Like the first book, it is an easy read - the perfect book for the beginner, but more advanced beekeepers would probably look elsewhere for greater educational information on honeybees. Then again, it is a book aimed for the beginning backyard beekeeper - in that reference, it is very well done.

John

 do we know if the mystery girl is someone which post here often or is she just a lady that at one time became a member and is not very active?

Might be a dumb question but are we talking about the book "new beekeeping for dummies"?

I sure hope so because there were many things in the first edition that needed to be updated.
