Donnas also has time now to start on some drawings – and if they’re as good as her pottery, they’ll truly illuminate the story for young readers. I can’t wait to see them!

I’ve also made headway on editing my fantasy trilogy, Lay of Angor, down into a single volume for my friend Martine Guillermin to translate into French (as well as re-launching it in English-speaking markets). I’m having great fun revisiting the text, addressing reader criticisms, and making substantial cuts – mainly to Book 1, which I’ve always felt was the weakest. I’ve already revised the opening chapters so that Martine can start working on it this summer, and feel much happier with my ‘new and improved’ version.

Meanwhile I’ve also been enjoying a successful end to my winter lecture season with a flurry of activity this month. On Wednesday 1st, Hubcap and I had a splendid time doing our double act on the Battle of Towton for Horbury Historical Society. As ever, his ‘Arming the Archer’ section went down a storm, attracting a crowd of eager questioners after the talk – one gentleman was so fascinated by everything to do with the longbow that he didn’t want to go home – and I also sold plenty of books! My annual contribution to the Doncaster & District Heritage Festival was so over-subscribed that it had to be moved to a larger venue; and I’m hoping that my Battle of Wakefield presentation to Morley Monday Club tomorrow will be equally well-received... and then I can rest on my laurels until the autumn!
