[FFmpeg-user] Requesting to add a new book to the "Books about FFmpeg" section?

It's a full-color book and I'm only getting 5 USD per sale because of the
number of pages. So even if I sold 100 books (which I've yet to sell a
single book since releasing it 2 days ago) I would barely cover a week of
the 2 months I spend writing it, plus editing and cover art. I'm never
going to make the money back on this project it's just a resume builder
during this time I don't have a job because of the virus. I'm returning the
favor by creating a book to hopefully introduce the API to the next
generation of FFmpeg users.
