Waeshael! Happy Yuletide!

A Free Red Ned novel to all my friends today at Amazon!

Good day to my growing legion of devoted readers, I wish you all happiness good company and joy this Yuletide Season. Remember that is the time for friendship, family and compassion and I hope that none of you end up with the kind of Christmas gathering as portrayed in The Lion in Winter. A brilliant representation of the archetypal not so loving medieval family- the Plantagenets. Headed by Henry II and his formerly loving wife Eleanor of Aquitaine. And who can forget their devoted children Richard Coure d’lion the later crusading king, Geoffrey of Brittany an arch schemer and the future King John. If all that wasn’t enough as an interested visitor and guest they also have King Philip of France, a young lad keen to regain the kingdom Henry II stole off his father. So anyway this season I encourage you to relax like a monarch (a Tudor one could be safer) and bestow peace and generosity to those around you.
As my effort to help along the festivities I am currently offering my Red Ned novel set around Christmas The Liberties of London as a free download from Amazon Aust/US and the UK for one more day so I encourage you to take a Red Ned home take a seat, a glass of fine Rhenish and read about how Ned’s best laid plans for a Tudor Christmas Revel unravel.

A short clip from the Lion in Winter - Knives or Peace... Just remember who carves the goose! 

Please note this offer expires by the 23/12/2011 (11.59 pm Pacific Standard Time)

Red Ned Tudor Mysteries, Apprentice Lawyer and Aspiring Rogue

This is the first of a series of stories following the life and mis adventures of Edward (Red Ned) Bedwell, a young apprentice lawyer at Gray’s Inn and reluctant investigator who experiences first hand the tumult and intrigue during the reigns of the Tudor monarchs from Henry VIII to Queen Elizabeth I. A foot slogger’s view of the dangerous and deadly rivalries, ambitions and human foibles of the Tudor Court. His Sovereign Majesty the King may command and Councillor Cromwell will instruct, but it is poor Ned that has to deal with the inevitable consequences that led to treachery and murder. In this Ned is mostly aided by the solid friendship of Rob Black, an artificer in iron and bronze. However it also includes the not necessarily appreciated but usually correct hectoring of his sister Mistress Meg Black, an apprentice Apothecary and suspected heretic. With this ill sorted team Ned has to balance solving his master’s instructions with retaining his honour, keeping secrets and somehow climb up the greasy pole of advancement in the Tudor Age.
