March 2011

So it was lots of fun, and a privilege to take part... I hope Keith and I might be able to join forces for a similar double-act again at some point! Meanwhile, it's back to work and lots more interesting things coming up... including a talk by author George Goodwin at Wakefield's Drury Lane Library on Wednesday evening, together with a signing session for his excellent new book on Towton, Fatal Colours. Looking forward to that - and I'll try and get a review of Fatal Colours posted on the Review page by the end of April. But for now I'm off to stitch my husband's gusset (of the new pair of hose I'm making him, I hasten to add!).

First task was to get on with the press releases for Walk Wakefield - and I've just taken delivery of 100 nice shiny new copies, hot off the press from YPS. So now I can go ahead and tell the world about it - meanwhile getting very excited about launching it at Wakefield Waterstones on the 19th. I'm also looking forward to the 'Sandal Castle in Fact & Fiction' session I'm delivering with Keith Souter the following weekend... and next Friday we're doing a photo-shoot at Sandal Castle to publicise it. So between that, preparations for the TBS Palm Sunday event next month and cracking on with Chapter 11 of the second volume of Lay of Angor, it's all go for Herstory!
