News from Stone & Stone
24 January 2002

Over the past six years we've been unable to devote as much attention to self-published books about World War II, especially those written by veterans about their wartime experiences, as we would have liked. The reason? The effort needed to collect and collate the information simply exceeded our resources. That's all about to change. We'll soon be announcing a new, automated system for collecting information from self-publishers and we'll be adding a new series of webpages to convey to our visitors information about self-published WWII-related books and their authors. If you've written and published your own book about World War II (or if you're just interested in those kinds of books), watch this space for an announcement within the next few days. Even if we haven't been able to promote your book in the past, we'll soon be able to do so.
