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 http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00KFDQVI2/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1634&creative=6738&creativeASIN=B00KFDQVI2&linkCode=as2&tag=alexalarma-21….

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!
‘One hesitates to draw comparisons with his bedroom prowess’
I’ve done another interview with the excellent Workshy Fop blog about all things John Wilmot, in which I’ve briefly addressed some of the comments made about Rochester in the reviews so far – I’m going to return to this later but in the meantime here you go.
On the radio…
I’m going to be on BBC Radio Oxford next Tuesday at around 11am discussing all things Rochester and Blazing Star. No swearing or smut, but if you don’t mind that, you can listen to it athttp://www.bbc.co.uk/radiooxford or on 95.2 FM if you’re anywhere near Oxford itself…
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.
