Shieldwall Breaks into the Best Seller lists at #2!!!

the picture says it all, and just time to squeeze in a bottle of the finest bubbly before flying to London for the UK Book Tour!

UK Tour Dates

I asked my wife, What to take on a book tour? She told me a pen, ink and a spare change of underwear. And books of course! I've got my own list, and will be adding and subtracting from that in the next few hours of scrambled packing, but just time to let you know what's happening in the next few weeks.

If you're around, or it's a rainy day, and you have nothing better to do, then why not come and listen to some old english. Or indeed, the adventures of Godwin Wulfnothson. Or indeed, about that other great conquest of England, in 1016, not 1066!
