New! If you’d like to be kept informed of my book writing and publishing activities, but nothing else, sign up to Terry’s Books Bulletin.
This will be a very sporadic newsletter stating things like “I’ve just self-published a book called …. If you’d like a sample chapter, please go to…” etc. This bulletin will be ideal for you if you only want to know about my new books, and nothing else.
If, however, you wish to know about my new books and lots of other news, views and articles about Computing and ICT in general, then sign sign up to Digital Education. (More about that below.)
Note that just like Digital Education, Terry’s Books Bulletin uses a double opt-in system, meaning that you have to confirm that you would like to subscribe.
If you already subscribe to Digital Education, then you don’t have to do anything.
To subscribe to Terry's Books Bulletin, please click on the button below.
"But wait!", you say. "I want to subscribe to both."
That's possible: whichever button you click on, the one above or the one below, will present you with a form on which you can select both newsletters. Also, if you choose one and then at a later date decide to choose the other, just click on the link at the bottom of the first message you receive after signing up, or a past newletter. The link is for changing your email address or unsubscribing from the list, but it also gives you the option to sign up for the other newsletter.
Mind you, you may not want to. It depends what you're hoping to receive. Here's a summary:
Digital Education: receive the newsletter which will contain articles, news, reviews and so on, including any news about my book-writing activities.
Terry's Books Bulletin: receive only news about my book-writing activities.
The only advantage in signing up to the Bulletin as well as the newsletter is that the Bulletin is likely to be more timely, simply because when I am composing the newsletter it takes me longer to compile and format all the items that go into it.
OK, now read on to find out more about the newsletter, Digital Education!

Occasionally, we run competitions or prize draws in the newsletter. Here are the rules:
Unless otherwise stated for a particular competition, the following rules apply to all competitions announced on this website or in Digital Education:
The competition is open to subscribers to Digital Education only. This is a free e-newsletter. (For certain competitions, only UK residents are eligible to enter; in fact, unless otherwise stated, competitions are open for UK residents only.)
IT is ok for people to enter more than once.
The judges' names are withheld, but if you wish to know them, please email us.
The judges' decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into over the matter.
The winner(s) will be notified as soon as possible after the close of the competition. What usually happens is that we ask you if we may pass on your contact details to the company that has made the prize available, so that they can send it to you. If you do not wish us to do so, please be aware that this may result in the offer of the prize being withdrawn. If we do not hear back from you in answer to this request, or for other pertinent information (such as your country of residence) within 10 working days, the prize may be offered to someone else.
The details of the winning entries will be published in the first issue of Digital Education after the close of the competition.
These rules have been drawn up in accordance with UK law.
Please note: the newsletter is now in the form of a pdf document. Most of the newsletters in that format are now archived in a different section of the website available to subscribers only. You can obtain a sample copy by clicking the link given earlier.
