SBP Blog

Welcome to the New Site!

Peter Goodman - Thursday, December 11, 2014

Long time no see friends! Thanks for hanging with us while we updated the Stone Bridge Press website.

 We’ll now be updating our blog on a regular basis. You can expect excerpts from upcoming books, fun cultural insights about Japan, and even guest appearances from some of your favorite Stone Bridge Press authors.

Another great way to stay abreast of happenings here is to follow Stone Bridge Press on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest, where we post news about new books, giveaways, and events.

And finally, we’ve also revamped our monthly newsletter. You can now sign up and control what sorts of news you would like to be receiving. Really interested in anime and gardens, but don’t want to hear about anything else? That’s ok! We’ll tailor our newsletters to your interests.
