Hi Craig,

I would be very interested in seeing your research on the Empress. It may not be as well known as the Titanic is, but I believe it would still sell. Your research on Carpathia's passengers sounds very exciting. As you said, not much is known about them.

One of these days, I plan to purchase your wonderful CD.

Best regards,

Hi Jason,

Thank you. I agree, I think the Empress story would sell, but I have to find someone interested in publishing it first. And, any work on the Empress would have to be broader than a series of biographies. People know the Titanic story, in one form or another, which makes a CD of biographies more accessible. But although there are several excellent books on the Empress the story of the sinking is less well known.

I must admit I rather like the Carpathia passengers, although I think part of that has to do with how difficult they are to find. I do enjoy the challenge of hunting them down.

I hope you enjoy the CD when you get it.

Best regards
Craig
 
Craig,

I, for one, am very much looking forward to seeing your work on the Carpathia passengers. Have you any idea of timescales for this and the Empress biographies?

Cheers,

Boz
 
Hi Iain,

Oh dear, what have I started! True, I am working on the Empress and Carpathia, but I hadn't considered either to be ready enough to take them further just yet. Mind you, I have learned from the Titanic CD, and am writing up the biographies as I go along. For one thing, doing it this way I can spot gaps that need following up. I also have a couple of other ships I am investigating, so you could say I have more than enough to be going on with.
Also, after finishing the Titanic CD I was exhausted, and couldn't settle to any serious research. It has taken a while to pick up where I left off with the Empress.
Right now, I am enjoying the research and writing, but there is no timescale to them. Watch this space is really all I can say.
Regards
Craig

Hi Craig,

You're very welcome.

Being able to have the challenge of looking for information on the passenger's lives is what it's all about, plus it's exciting when you unearth new info.

I have no doubt that I will enjoy your CD very much, when I do purchase it and I look forward to seeing more from you.

Best regards,

Jason
