I have received an update regarding The Encyclopaedia of Girls’ School Stories from Girls Gone By Publishers
"I think some of you may not be surprised to learn that the Ency is going to have to be in three volumes, not two as we originally thought.
Each volume will have 224 pages + 8 pages in full-colour + a full-colour cover. There will be over 300 black-and-white pictures per volume (I have not counted yet) + 32 in full colour + the cover.
The contents of each volume will be as follows:
Typesetting The Encyclopaedia
The Critical Response
Researching The Encyclopaedia
Apologia and Explanation
Adult School Fiction
Ballet and Stage School Stories
Convent School Stories
Early School Stories
Evangelistic School Stories
Authors N-Z (NB there are no entries for the Letters X or Z)
Girl’s Own Paper
Girls’ School Story Papers
Historical and Fantasy School Stories
Modern School Stories
Pony School Stories
Scottish School Stories
Realistically, we are not going to be able to publish Volume One until July, but that is a sensible date and I can not see any problems with making this. My question to those of you who have ordered (or are going to order) is this:
Once I hear back from you, I shall update the website and announce Volumes Two and Three if you would like them under no 1. If you want them later then they will be announced a bit later."
Please either email me firstname.lastname@example.org or you can email GGBP direct email@example.com
If you have already ordered Volume One (and paid for it) and now feel that you cannot stretch to three volumes, please let me know and I shall refund you.
Apologies for the length of this post but I wasn't sure how many people have signed up and would see GGBP's weekly email.
