New E-Book Bundles for Making Your Journey into AutoHotkey Scripting Easier
Every programmer suffers moments where he or she achieves a breakthrough and the code actually works. Their first impulse—tell someone…anyone. “Look what I just did!” Alas, they find no one nearby to praise the accomplishment. At least, no one who either understands or cares about their success. Maybe that’s why I write about my AutoHotkey journeys. I need to tell someone when (ironically?) some code I wrote does what it’s supposed to do.
I think my primary goal is to entice other people into learning AutoHotkey. Not just because it’s a powerful, simple Windows utility language, nor because writing working scripts is extremely satisfying (and fun), but I want more people using and understanding AutoHotkey so that I can tell them whenever I manage to eke out a minor AutoHotkey achievement. [Did you see that AutoHotkey Hotstring secret in the last blog?]
Although a number of ideas in my books might be useful to experienced programmers, the bulk of my work aims at novices who want to learn the ins and outs of AutoHotkey scripts. If you already know how to write scripts, then these books may only act as a source of ideas. For the knowledgeable coder, the basic AutoHotkey commands and features are available on the Web at AutoHotkey.com and you can teach yourself the language—as I did.
However, I do admit that I often refer back to my own books while writing this AutoHotkey blog, because, not even I can remember everything that I wrote.

For those who don’t want or need the entire AutoHotkey Mega Library Book Bundle, I’ve put together two more discounted bundles. Each a subset of the library, the first makes up a starter bundle and includes the primary beginning books, A Beginner’s Guide to AutoHotkey, Digging Deeper into AutoHotkey, Beginning AutoHotkey Hotstrings, Beginning Tips for Writing AutoHotkey Scripts, the Why AutoHotkey? book, as well as, the AutoHotkey Tricks book which includes all of the “Table of Contents” and “Indexes” from all the other books. This special deal gives new AutoHotkey users the tools to get a quick start toward adding power and flexibility to their Windows computer. The bundle includes all three formats: EPUB for mobile devices, MOBI for Amazon Kindle, and PDF for computers and printing on 8½ by 11 paper.
The second bundle moves to the next level by including more detailed instruction for the intermediate user on how to use the GUI (Graphical User Interface) pop-up windows to create practical AutoHotkey applications in the book AutoHotkey Applications; how to get the most out of Hotkey—including many “best practices”— in the book AutoHotkey Hotkey Techniques; learning the power of AutoHotkey “Regular Expressions” in the book Beginning Guide to Using Regular Expressions in AutoHotkey, plus, the AutoHotkey Tricks book which includes all of the “Table of Contents” and “Indexes” from all the other books. The bundle includes all three formats: EPUB for mobile devices, MOBI for Amazon Kindle, and PDF for computers and printing on 8½ by 11 paper.
