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...

The Jesuit Letter Kickstarter

Want to help bring a new novel into the world?

I've launched my publishing Kickstarter campaign to help me take my new book The Jesuit Letter into publication, and I’m looking for help.  The Jesuit Letter is a completed 112,000 word novel.  It is historical fiction, set in the Elizabethan era.

I started working on this project about six years ago and after three years of research, two years of writing and a year of editing and procrastination, I've decided to self-publish.  To do so, I need to invest in a professional copy edit, cover & layout design for the book.

Kickstarter is the first step on the road. The project page can be found here.  

Kickstarter, in case you aren't familiar with it, is a crowd-funding platform, a new way to fund creative projects. It helps bring new, innovative, inspiring projects, big and small, to life through direct support. Funding on Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing proposition — the project needs to reach the funding goal in order to receive any money, so every bit of support helps, whether it is backing the project or just telling friends!

In return for backing the publication of The Jesuit Letter, supporters get a selection of great rewards for their contribution, including a copy of the finished e-book. They also get the excitement of helping bring a new creative project into the world.

For details on The Jesuit Letter Kickstarter and how you can support bringing this project to life, check out The Jesuit Letter Kickstarter project page, get inspired and help bring this project to life!  Just click on the Big Green Button that says “Back This Project”.

Let me know if you have any questions or concerns about the project or if you just want to find out about the Kickstarter experience.

Thanks for your support and please be sure to tell your friends!
