A Dialogue on Morality

Introduction      In a tranquil field far removed from the rest of the world sat two silent souls. They were two men; one withered away by age and the other invigorated with the wonders of youth. The older man, known simply as Mentor, was not blind to the fact that he was living his last days. Thus, he had called his most valued student down to sit and speak with him in the field for one final revelation.   Meditation      They sat in silence at first, each quietly calming their own soul and allowing the other to do the same. The only sound they made was that of their breathing. A cool breeze gently kept them cool in the heat of the midday sun. The muted meditations of the two men then sudde...

Book Launch Spotlight: The Shadow Queen, by Anne O'Brien


  New on Amazon UK and Amazon US and Goodreads     The Shadow Queen tells the story of Joan of Kent, a tale of treachery, power-hungry families and legal subterfuges, in which Joan, a woman of considerable charm and beauty, played a central role at the Plantagenet Court.   ‘What would enhance the pattern of my life further?

Now out in paperback: Swords and Swordsmen, by Mike Loades


  New on Amazon UK and Amazon US This magnificent book tells the story of the evolution of swords, how they were made, how they were used, and the people that used them. It doesn't claim to give comprehensive coverage but instead takes certain surviving examples as landmarks on a fascinating journey through the history of swords.  Each is selected because it can be linked to a specific individual, thus telling their story too and giving a human interest. So the journey starts with the sword of Tutankhamun and ends with the swords of J E B Stuart and George Custer. Along the way we take in Henry V, Cromwell and Uesugi Kenshin, and there is the most detailed discussion you'll find anywhere of ...

Guest Post by J.G Harlond, Author of The Doomsong Sword


  New on Amazon UK and Amazon US   Facing up to destiny can be lonely, silent, and secret.  In the darkest years of Long Ago in the cold, cold North, there were two young men who were very much alike; and very different in all that mattered most. Davor was a spinner of stories; Sigurd was an earl. Both were destined to confront an evil dragon – but only one of them slew the beast. The Doomsong Sword is coming-of-age, mythic fantasy based on the ancient Norse Volsung Saga, where the real tests of character aren’t always what they seem.     “You write what you read . . .”   I recently heard a comment that an author writes what he or she reads. This is possibly true, but herein lies something o...
