I really like days like this. We’re just putting the finishing layout touches to two new books in our “In a Nutshell” series. Both will be out in the world within a matter of days!
The first is a book by Adrienne Dillard, author of Cor Rotto, which is the factual companion to her novel. Entitled “Catherine Carey in a Nutshell”, this non-fiction history book is all about the life of Mary Boleyn’s daughter. It’s a quick read and brings together all of Adrienne’s research into this fascinating Tudor woman.
The second book is by Kyra Kramer, the well known freelance medical anthropologist and author of “Blood will Tell”. The book is called Henry VIII’s Health in a Nutshell and Kyra has looked at the various ailments which afflicted Henry throughout his life. She combines her own detailed research and with thoughts and theories from historians throughout the ages. If you want to know what Henry VIII really suffered from then this is the perfect book!
These two amazing books continue our hit series of short factual history books. MadeGlobal’s History in a Nutshell Series aims to give readers a good grounding in a historical topic in a concise, easily digestible and easily accessible way. The series now includes:
