Hi,

I'm one of the winner for Terraform in Action. I have sent my information to bookpromotion@javaranch.com , but haven't got reply yet.

Between, can help check what is the status of Practical Cloud-Native Java Development with MicroProfile ? I have not received any message from the publisher about e-books and physical books.

Thanks a lot

Can you give me an idea of how long ago you sent your email?

I am not sure myself, but that sounds a bit early for the publishers to have sent the book yet.

Normally, we check that account every day or two. I was on vacation and it went longer. (and then I was dealing with log4j stuff and got behind on other things) I just replied to the people who sent emails.

While I agree it is too soon to have received the book, it isn't too soon to expect a reply acknowledging email. We do say to post here in Ranch Office if you don't receive that initial reply in two days so thanks for doing that!

Thanks Ranch, I have received 3 ebooks and one paper book (I thought will receive 4 books at first).  

I think if mention whether we win a copy of a book / ebook during the book promotion date would be better ?

Anyway just my suggestion.

I'm not entirely sure, but I think there are some parts of the world where publishers don't send hard copies, instead, they just send electronic versions.

I've won 2 books in the past, and received them both in electronic versions, even though I think they were intended to be sent as paper ones, and perhaps that is applicable mainly to US and maybe somewhere else.

I'm in UK by the way. Maybe yours situation is similar.

My address is in US. This are the replies from publisher:

Terraform in Action -  Publisher said they usually send only ebook.
Beginning Intellij IDEA - Publisher only send ebook to me.
Practical Cloud-Native Java Development with MicroProfile - Publisher said they received the winners list from CodeRanch team for eBooks. They will only send print copies to Amazon reviewers in exchange for an honest review on amazon.com.

I’m asking this because I'm not living in US. If I know it's an ebook during promotion day, there's no need for me to find US friend at the beginning.

Thanks.

Can you forward those emails to the book promo account?  (The one you sent your winner info too.) I know if varies by country, but I have personally received print books from Manning so I know that isn't it. Which means I need to talk to the publishers about what's going on here.

Been there. Done that. Went back for more. But this time, I took this tiny ad with me:
