Elizabethan London

Elizabethan London
Tyburn was an infamous execution spot west of London, used since medieval times. The Tyburn "tree" - a unique, multi-person gallows - erected in 1571 became a popular public spectacle, drawing crowds of thousands.Tyburn Tree blog is less blood-thirsty but hopefully topical, interesting and informative, if slightly bent to my personal topics of interest - books, writing, history, technology, with a smattering of politics and dash of pop culture, science and the downright strange. So "take a ride to Tyburn" and see what happens...

IndieB.R.A.G. Medallion Honoree!

It's official!

THE JESUIT LETTER is now an @IndieBrag Medallion Honoree!

For those that haven't run into this before, “indie” refers to self-published books and B.R.A.G. is an acronym for Book Readers Appreciation Group.

The IndieB.R.A.G. Medallion is a quality mark that is applied to independently published books that achieve a high standard of quality - covering  writing, plot, characterization, dialogue, style, editing, formatting, cover design and more. Only about 10% of the books submitted for review walk away with a Medallion, so hitting this achievement is a significant mark for any book.

So. YAY!!!

Go see: http://bit.ly/1tcXWI4

And I get some fancy foil logo stickers for my printed books!

Rodents of Unusual Size

Headed to High Park for the evening dog walk. Nothing to do with looking for the escaped capybara currently at large in High Park.

Really. Seriously.

Okay, we were looking for capybara.

Saw the one that was left in the zoo - he is now The Loneliest Capybara, and a nice sunset over Grenadier Pond.

Otherwise nothing.

If you are on Facebook, I recommend you check it out and follow along!
