Launched e-book subscription

Sam Dawson @samic8

I launched a subscription for an e-book on React component testing. I'm planning to release chapters of the book for free via email and the website, then once the book is completed release it as a paid e-book with accompanying video content for each chapter.

The motivation behind the subscription early access model is to build an audience, gauge interest and get feedback on each chapter as early as possible.
