In the meantime I am still working on the first of what I hope will be a trilogy of novels about King John. These are currently being revised and will make their separate appearances over the course of the next 10-12 months in Kindle format on Amazon, and then, I hope, in other venues too. I have included a contact form on the 'What's Coming' page so that you can leave your email address if you are interested in being contacted when the novel has just been published.
I think King John has been rather overshadowed by his father King Henry II and brother King Richard I. It was fascinated to research his life and find out more about him. Apart from King Richard III, I cannot think of another English king who has had a worse press over the years.
The first novel of the trilogy is now at the stage where I am considering the cover, and when this has been produced, I will be putting it up on the 'What's Coming' page on this website so that you can see it. I will also be posting up a small section of text from the beginning of the novel on my 'Taster Text' page so that you can get a flavour of the novel. The entire first novel will be published in December 2012 or possibly January 2013. Do email me from my 'Keep in Touch' page if you have any comments, or indeed leave comments to this blog entry here. I would be thrilled to hear from you.
