Richard III: His Story

Richard III: His Story

Happy to announce that the Kindle e-book version of Kirsteen Thomson’s book “Richard III: His Story” is now available on Amazon. It’s been fun to turn Kirsteen’s great artwork into an e-book, and we’ve gone for an interactive approach which takes the reader through the text and images. What a great way to enjoy the book. Of course, just like the hardback version of the book, the images are in beautiful full colour (where the kindle device allows!) and they are in ultra high quality too.

Enjoy the book:

At MadeGlobal Publishing, we’re getting a great reputation for high-quality historical fiction and non-fiction. As part of that, it is often important for us to include family trees … they can be SO complicated for some historical families!

Anyway, on 20 August we are publishing the first amazing novel from a series by Wendy J. Dunn entitled “Falling Pomegranate Seeds”, which, as you might imagine, is based around the story of Katherine of Aragon. I asked Wendy to send us a family tree, which she has kindly done whilst travelling back from the UK to Australia.

When I received her image, I was really very relieved. Finally, we have a family tree which is simple and clear! Well done Isabel and Ferdinand for the simplicity of your family!

There you go. Of course, for the final book we’ll be making it look stunning, and will be making it blend in with the styling of the book … but this really is it!

We know that fans of Wendy J. Dunn are already looking forward to her next novel, and this one is excellent – well worth the wait!

Mary Rose Trust

From the Mary Rose Trust …

Dear MadeGlobal,

Thank you so much for raising £85 for the Mary Rose Trust via your Anne Boleyn Day. It means so much to us to know we have supporters far and wide. You’ll be pleased to know that 100% of your donation goes towards the continuing conservation of Henry VIIIs favourite flagship, Mary Rose. Receiving no Government funding, we rely 100% on kind supporters such as yourself.

The museum is progressing steadily now and we hope to reveal an open date very soon (keep an eye on our website). Maybe, one day, all of your site visitors will find the time to come and visit us.

Thank you again for your kind generosity.

Stacey

Whitehall Palace in a Nutshell

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.

In Whitehall Palace in a Nutshell, researcher and author Philip Roberts delves into the history of England’s most important and significant lost building, a palace which had 2000 rooms and covered 23 acres in its heyday.

Using his unprecedented connections, Philip has been able to gain access to the historical places in Whitehall Palace which still exist today, many of which are not open to public access.

Philip Roberts, a member of the Mary Rose Trust Information Group Team for well over 20 years, has a passion for Tudor re-enactment and educating people about its history.

Whitehall Palace in a Nutshell

Philip Roberts has been busy, working at writing some fantastic nutshell books. The first of these, soon to be published, is his book on Whitehall Palace, the vitally important palace which is now sadly non-existent. But, thanks to Philip’s special access and connections, he has managed to put together those parts of the palace that still exist, and to outline the intriguing history of the palace.

MadeGlobal’s “nutshell” series continues to grow, and we love the direction the books are taking. With their short format, great pricing, and above all, top-rate history, they are the perfect way to learn about the past.

Enjoy this cover reveal … and it won’t be long before the actual book will be available to buy!

Position 3 and 4

On Thursday, we launched two books to the world … “Struck with the Dart of Love” and “Truth Endures“, both by author Sandra Vasoli. Together, they tell the life story of Anne Boleyn, and they’re wonderful books. As a pair they tell a brilliant tale, crafted in a masterful and emotional way.

Anyway, it has been brought to our attention that the pair of books are in positions #3 and #4 in the prestigious “Best Sellers in Renaissance World History” list on Amazon kindle at the moment. We’d love them to move up to #1 and #2, so if you’re an Anne Boleyn or Tudor History fan, then these really are the books for you!

Well done Sandra for having another great success with a book published through MadeGlobal.
