Laurent,

This is my fault that Stalingrad book has been delayed. Fonthill will surely advise the nearest release date as soon I handle them the finished manuscript, that I can not do up to now due to my personal reasons.

Re: Fonthill Media

Jay,


I applaud your efforts to keep people informed. I wish more publishers did that. Granted, some may not feel the need since they are well-known brands, but even makers of soda pop in the US advertise constantly. Yes, I know print ads are expensive but the internet? There's no excuse for publishers - some who wonder about their sales or lack thereof - to not post here or on other, related sites.

As part of a fiction book publishing company across the pond, even a few mentions are valuable. I know the sites where I can announce new releases and promote books about to go to press. Nothing fancy need be done.


Best,
Ed West

Re: Fonthill Media

Jay:

I agree with Ed West regarding your efforts at informing us about forthcoming publications. After all, these are not time-sensitive stuff in terms of "need to now now"!

Just do it right, and, by all means keep us updated. The members of the web site and others are your most likely purchasers.
