Another drone anthology on the cards
Sometimes a thing can be so good you will want to do it again.
A Game of Thrones, the first book in the fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire (we do remember A Song of Ice and Fire, don’t we – that modest fantasy book series that spawned an equally modest television show) was so good that George RR Martin returned with A Clash of Kings, then again with A Storm of Swords, and again with A Feast for Crows and A Dance with Dragons.
Still the fanbase came back for more – so Mr Martin promised them more instalments, which he has thus far refused to honour. It has been fourteen years now since A Dance with Dragons, George. Please, do something.
Well; Drone Professional 1, the Louise Jupp-edited Amazon best-selling anthology of experiences with drone technology as told by sixteen drone professionals published in February this year has not reached cult status yet, but it has done well enough to earn itself a sequel.
Announcing the call for authors to Drone Professional 2, Jupp said the second book was a result of public demand.
“Building on the best-selling success of Drone Professional 1, and in response to feedback and demand, I am now calling for authors for Drone Professional 2,” Jupp said. “The aim of Drone Professional 2 is to share experiences, provide technological and operational insights, operational best practice, good business guidance for success and thoughts on the future of the professional drone industry.”
The first book was modelled along the same concept, with insightful contributions from professionals like Dr Debbie Jewitt, Tawanda Chihambakwe, Kim James, Benoit Le Ber, Jasper Schmeits, Anne-Lise Scaillierez, Filippo Tomasello, James Oliver, S. James Ellis, Robert Miller, Justin Melman, Janna Mae Rubin, Rabih Bou Rashid, Graham Dyer and Arie van Ravenswaay.
Contributors hoping to have their articles published in the book must be in touch with Jupp by the 20th of next month for submission guidelines. Jupp is not choosy about your area of expertise on the drone value chain; only that the articles themselves must be 1,500 words long.
