Popular – The Audio Book

Together with our fantastic teen-market author Gareth Russell, we’ve been working every waking hour to get an audio book version of Gareth’s book “Popular – Book One of the Popular Series” ready for publication.

Today the book has moved one step forwards, as we have now uploaded it ready for publication on audio book websites such as Amazon, Audible and the iStore. Fans of Gareth and his popular teen fiction (pun intended!) won’t have to wait much longer for this book to be available. But in the meantime, here is a little sample audio from the book for you listen to…

We love Gareth’s smooth Irish accent, and if you’re anything like us, you’ll find that after listening to “Popular” you’ll be coming out with Irish phrases in your every day life. Well done Gareth.

Announcements as to the availability of this all-new audio book will follow as they are available.

Yad VashemWe received an email today from the Yad Vashem Library in Jerusalem ( letting us know that Melanie V. Taylor’s amazing short story “The Walls of Truth” has been accepted by them as part of their collection.

Your donation is particularly welcome because our library not only seeks to serve its readers today, but is a repository for published and book-form information about the Holocaust and related events for the generations to come.
- Rachel Cohen,Assistant to the Library Director

Well done Melanie for helping such an important library, and for continuing to spread your writing worldwide.

Two of our authors, Claire Ridgway and Clare Cherry, are soon to be publishing a new book “George Boleyn: Tudor Poet, Courtier and Diplomat”, which is to be the only modern biography of George Boleyn, brother to Queen Anne Boleyn.

As part of the lead-up to the launch, the two “C”s have recorded a series of interviews based on questions from readers of TheAnneBoleynFiles. We had a lot of fun recording them, and have had lots of hair-pulling in the editing suite!

Here are the first three videos:

There are going to be nine videos in total for this series, so all you Tudor fans … enjoy!

Yesterday we had a fun day out with authors Claire Ridgway and Clare Cherry. We were down at a local photographer’s studio getting author photos taken in preparation for their joint book about George Boleyn. Here they are in all their glory.

The Fall of Anne BoleynWe’ve just been made aware of an excellent review of Claire Ridgway’s book “The Fall of Anne Boleyn” on the website “Anne Boleyn: From Queen to History”. This review is a wonderful reflection of the hard work that Claire put into writing her best selling book. A short quote from the review:

Overall I found this to be a very emotional book. I have read a great deal about Anne Boleyn and Claire Ridgway’s book on her final few months and her tragic fall is one of the best that I have ever read. Not only is it extremely informative, it is easy to read and holds a great deal of emotion within its words. I would certainly recommend this book to anyone interested in Anne Boleyn or Tudor history.

To be available within the next few days, a chilling short novel by author Melanie V Taylor.

The year is 1945. Hitler’s war in Europe is over, but for The Man and The Interrogator, things have only just started.

The Interrogator sat behind a large desk, examining the features of The Man seated across from him, and smiled. The Man did not react. He had no idea of where he was or how he had got here; this was a new experience for him.

Melanie V Taylor evokes a chilling image of how things could be in this short story which will leave you wondering … what if?
