After working on my Book since 2007, I´m now in final stages and sent it to the publisher for lecture. I always planned to have an english version published too. One reason for that is the visit counter on the thread about the Habachtal Emeralds here on GO. Shows a lot of interest in the english speaking world. And there is no Book yet about the occurrence published in english.

Just try to work a bit in advance and ask our GO members that already published books in the US:

Since there are so many publishers (even working through the german ones took ages) in the U.S. are there Gem/Mineral related publishers that you would recommend to be contacted?

I ask this because I´ve been through the game of bad practice guys already, so I would be grateful to have suggestions on that matter so I can avoid having such experiences overseas again...

Thank you,

Nikolaus
