Sad Christmas 1535

Christmas is not always the happiest of times for everybody and Christmas 1535 was a difficult time for Maria de Salinas, the 17 times Great Grandmother of Princess Diana and 19 times Great Grandmother of little Prince George.

So, for my regular readers, and any new readers who come by this December 2013, I thought you might like to read an extract from my debut novel – Captain Cobbler 1536: the Lincolnshire Uprising. The extract takes a look at how Christmas 1535 was for Maria de Salinas, lady in waiting and greatest friend of Catherine of Aragon (Catalina in Spanish, as you will see in the fourth paragraph, just by the way).

To read this ten page extract click on the connection below to my Captain Cobbler website and the story will appear there. And, if you like that story you can always click onwards to amazon.co.uk or amazon.com to buy the whole book. If you are a bibliophile like me you may wish to buy the book in paperback – or better still in hardback! But if you are into electronic books you will find my novel at amazon for less than the price of a good cup of coffee.

WHY DON’T YOU TREAT FRIENDS OR FAMILY TO A LOVELY HARDBACK BOOK FOR CHRISTMAS 2013….??? GO ON – SPOIL THEM!!

So – to get to the website >>>>>> http://www.captaincobbler.comthen you will have to click on “Christmas 1535” on the header picture TO READ THE EXTRACT

Or to go directly to buy the book >>>>>>>>> http://www.amazon.co.uk/Captain-Cobbler-Lincolnshire-Uprising-1536/dp/1475997795
