Blazing Star for 99p!

It’s today’s Kindle Deal of the Day on Amazon, and so if you wanted to read about the exploits of bad Lord Rochester for less than the price of a newspaper, visit….

A Hatchards Revel

I’m doing a lunchtime talk at none other than the illustrious Hatchards bookshop in Piccadilly on September 10th, and will be discussing all aspects of Rochester then. It should make for an illuminating hour or so – details can be found here.

Chelsea, Woodstock and Oxford residents – I will be coming to a bookshop near you soon too as well. Details to come shortly!

More publicity

Somewhat to my faint surprise, the reviews continue to come in. There’s a lovely piece in today’s Daily Mail which describes the book as ‘the most comprehensive portrait of Rochester yet’. They’ve also made it their book of the week. I was also thrilled to see the book covered by the great Denis Donoghue in a recent Irish Times review.

There will be some more talks and signings soon – details to follow – and I’m also appearing on BBC Radio Oxford next week, and will be sure to have a few things to say about Rochester.
