Resources - Write/Edit for Hentzenwerke

Wanna write or edit a book? Here's all you need to know about how the publishing process works here.

Write/Edit for Hentzenwerke
Source Code

Most of our books come with source code. Any piece of code, whether it's a program snippet, the design surfaces for forms or reports, or scripts, should be included electronically so that the reader doesn't have to create them by hand. It's a convenience to the reader that most everyone expects.

As you write, you should have drafts of the code you use as you write the book, and then use the time while the book is in layout and printing to produce the final source code files. Tech edit will need to review those; nothing is more aggravating to a reader than to find the source code doesn't run, or doesn't match the text. But the final version of the source code is not due at the time the chapter is submitted for copy editing.

Source code is due at the time the book starts shipping. There's usually about a month between the time the final chapter has been sent to layout and the books land on customer's doorsteps, so that's when the source code needs to get finished up.

How to reference source code in your book and how to package source code for download is described in detail in the HWP Style Guide.
