Greetings All,

To add to the announcments of new PT books, my book on the history of the Motor Torpedo Boat Squadrons Training Center is due out in March of this year. Scheduled date is 1 March.

It is the first comprehensive history of MTBSTC from its beginning as swampland next to the Fuel and Net Depot, in Melville through its construction adn developmet as a training center, up to today as a marina and boat building center.

I will keep you posted when it is available.

Thanks.

Charlie

That is one book I have been waiting for. I look forward to seeing this once it is in print. Maybe I can get an autographed copy from you to put into my Library. Seems that many books are coming out like hot cakes these days, with my book now out, yours in March, and Garth's in April. This is a fun time of you love the History of PT BOATS, and MAS BOATS........

Charlie, do you plan to release your book in a Kindle version like Frank and Garth did with their recent publications? I for one would certainly be interested in obtaining that format.

I think the plan is to do that. It's kind of a big book so he's figuring out how to get it all in (I'm not sure how all that works).

Just as a future FYI:

Putting a book into eBook isn't up to the author, it's up to the publisher.
