DAM Survival Guide

DAM Survival Guide is now available in print. I’m so sorry about the long delay on this, but I wanted to get it perfect. The first few proofs I had created weren’t comfortable to read, but I think it’s pretty good now. Thanks for your patience!

Splice Vine Video Editing Blog Interview

Splice Vine just published an interview they conducted with me last week. It was nice to learn that the video community takes DAM so seriously!

It was a pleasure to work with them on this, and I’m very grateful for the opportunity!

Who’s Going to be First?


DAM Survival Guide on Amazon

The DAM Survival Guide digital asset management book is available now! Amazon called to say they’re waiting for you:

Thanks again to all the reviewers, advisers and well wishers who helped me make this happen. I hope the book helps people make better sense of DAM.

Book release update

Just wanted to let everyone know I’ll be sending the book to Amazon this week. It takes them a few days to churn it through the system, but I’m hopeful we’ll see it in the store early next week. I’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, thank you for the continued support and all the kind comments about the #DAMTIP one-liners! I’m glad people are finding them useful, or at least entertaining. 🙂

Search #DAMTIP for…DAM tips!

I’ve extracted just under 900 digital asset management tips that appear throughout the book, and I’ve added some extra tips that didn’t fit within the scope of the book. I’ll start posting them on here and on the DAM Survival Guide Google+ page.

Find them here, on Google+ or via Google using #DAMTIP.

Book Cover

The cover for DAM Survival Guide is done. I’m rounding up input from all the reviewers, and I expect to send the book to Amazon on Friday, June 1. Let’s make that the third week of June. I’m leaving for Switzerland for a week, and I could use a little extra time.

I want to take some space to thank my friend, Laurie Cook Wagner. She not only took the time to do a very helpful edit of the book, but she offered some wonderful guidance that I appreciate. Thank you, Laurie!


Coming Soon

The DAM Survival Guide eBook will be released in June, 2012. In the meantime, please follow this page for updates and announcements.

You can also check out the DAM Survival Guide’s table of contents to get an idea of what’s included.

Thank you for your interest and support!
