Research & Blog Update

During the past month, I have concentrated on final edits to the manuscript for my upcoming book, First World War Honour Roll of Guysborough County, Nova Scotia, Volume I: 1915 - 1917. As a result of the time required to complete preparations for publication, I was not able to research and write a soldier’s story for the blog. I expect that the situation will be much the same next month.

At present, I anticipate submitting a manuscript for publication sometime in October 2015, and expect to have a final product available for purchase in mid- to late November 2015. For further updates on the book’s progress and information on purchasing a copy once it is available, please visit Bantry Publishing’s website. I will also post an update on this blog, once the book has been completed.

After almost four years, it is becoming increasingly challenging to find suitable individuals to profile. Many of Guysborough’s veterans served with the same battalions and I do not want the stories to become repetitive. I can therefore no longer commit to writing a new story each month, and plan to research and post stories as opportunities arise. There are several possibilities that require additional research and information. I hope to post a new story to the blog before year’s end, at the latest.
