Where can I purchase "The Complete Guide to Greater Seahorses"?
I’m wondering the same thing! Help us out 😀February 19, 2008 at 12:21 am #3986Pete GiwojnaGuest
I appreciate your enthusiasm and interest in my new book but the reason you are having trouble locating it is because the book has not yet been published. However, I do have good news and bad news to report in that regard.
The good news is that I have a publisher for the book who is willing to publish it complete and in its entirety rather than condensing it or shortening the manuscript. That’s very important to me because the Complete Guide to the Greater Seahorses in the Aquarium basically picks up where my old Step-By-Step Book about Seahorses left off. Fully illustrated, the unabridged version of the new book will be well over 500 pages in length, making it a great deal more comprehensive than the earlier book. As a quick example, the chapter on disease prevention and control is itself, alone, considerably longer than any of the other guidebooks about seahorses that have ever been published.
The bad news is that in order to proceed I must first convert the book manuscript and illustrations into "electronically ready to print" form, and that is proving to be more difficult and time consuming than I had anticipated. Despite the difficulties, I expect it to be released sometime within the year and I promise you it will be worth the wait! The Complete Guide to Greater Seahorses is crammed cover to cover with the latest information and cutting-edge techniques and technology for keeping, breeding and raising the various species of captive-bred seahorses that are now available to the home hobbyist.
I will be sure to keep you guys informed as soon as it’s released and, in the meantime, you can always contact me personally or through the group for help with any of your seahorse related questions or concerns.
Best wishes with all your fishes!
