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...

It's Here! Launch Date April 23, 2015! Pre-Order via Amazon!

My book has arrived!

Ladies & Gentlemen, meet my first published novel, The Jesuit Letter (hint: it's in the box guarded by the intemperate cat). 

The Jesuit Letter is  available now for pre-orders on Amazon! Please place your orders now and on April 23rd, they will go through and your e-book will be sent out.

This particular batch of books shown is intended for all the supporters of my Kickstarter fundraiser however the official publication date is April 23, 2015; in honour of William Shakespeare's 451st Birthday (who is a key character in The Jesuit Letter as an eleven-year old Stratfordian troublemaker).


The Jesuit Letter (along with the 10,000 word novella prequel Black Dog) will also be available on Kobo and other  major e-book sites.

 Physical copies of the book (as seen in the pictures) can be ordered via Amazon as of April 23rd, 2015 but will not be available for pre-order.
If I sound overly excited it is because...I am.  This is the culmination of an almost ten-year long project and I am thrilled beyond measure that people can finally see and enjoy the fruit of that work, and hopefully, enjoy some sword-swinging Elizabethan intrigue and excitement.

So TELL ALL YOUR FRIENDS! Your support for this creative endeavor is THE critical part of making this work and helping me bring Tyburn back for another trek through the London back-alleys.

Thank you in advance for your kind support, your assistance and your help in making this a reality.

Now bing a waste! (and if you don't know what that means - it's in the book.)
