I have a new twitter account with a call of @JosephHilbe. If you wish to follow I'll send out a tweet when I post new or updated articles, data, etc to the site. I'll also tweet about new books, journal articles, or software I've done that you may be interested in.
Stat/Transfer: Fantastic software for converting data between statistical packages. I highly recommend. www.stattransfer.com

5 Feb, 2015: The American Publishers Awards for Professional and Scholarly Excellence (2015 PROSE awards): Modeling Count Data, Honorable Mention, in Mathematics (2nd top mathematics book published in 2014).

LOGIT package on CRAN - for code, data and errata "Practical Guide to Logistic Regression"
COUNT package on CRAN - for code, data and errata "Negative Binomial Regression" and "Modeling Count Data"
msme package on CRAN -- for code,data and errata "Methods of Statistical Model Estimation"

FINALLY -- always make sure to check the Errata and Comments document for all stat books, including mine. Practical Guide and Modeling Count Data have both been corrected for errata. At their next printings the books will reflect the new corrected update.
