No-deal Brexit or no-Brexit deal

As England hurtles towards the Hobson’s choice of no-deal Brexit or a no-Brexit deal, it is worth remembering some of the other times that our leaders and the people made similar decisions, and what happened.  Unfortunately, most history is propaganda, and schoolchildren are brought up to think of our ancestors as great heroes, and our past becomes a myth, the Myth of England.  This book sets out the real history of England’s rampant past.  Available from Amazon on https://amzn.to/2MXbOAxmyth-of-england-front-cover-only

The Great British Bible

Just starting my next book – let’s see if I can get it into the bookshops for Christmas.  All I have to do is finish off The Tax Man first.  If you can’t wait till Xmas, there’s still time for you to read Myth of England, which sets the scene for this work.  As Painter said, in his review, “A must read history book”.  The_Great_British_Bible final front only.jpg

Myth of Brexit

During the Tory Party Conference in October last year, spoilt public schoolboy Jacob Rees-Mogg compared Brexit to the battle of Crécy, the battle of Agincourt, to the Magna Carta, “such a positive thing for our country” he said, but he was wrong; it may be a positive thing for a tiny minority, but all these battles he mentioned and even the Magna Carta were a disaster for England, especially for the young people who paid for them with their lives, their money or their freedom.

Myth of England was my best-selling book last year, but surprisingly it sold better in the USA than in the UK.  Perhaps the British don’t want their history spoiled.

So, I want to thank all my readers for buying my books, for reading them, and for giving me feedback, either on Amazon or directly.  Book sales increased more than 40% this year, so I am well on my way to sell a million books.myth-of-england-front-cover-only

Man with Book

Well, after correcting the pricing on my book, Man with Gun, which ended up being very expensive when I first set it up, and then reducing the pricing some more, and then sending a copy of the book to my guru sensei, John Slayton, master kendoka and all round good guy, I finally sold a first copy.  As anyone who has ever written a book, performed on stage or film or TV, or sung a song, knows, getting feedback is the only thing we respond to.  Positive feedback is easier to handle, but any feedback is AOK.  Especially if it is public: Amazon customer reviews are the ultimate support you can provide a writer, especially a new, and self-published writer.

So, many thanks to all my readers so far, and my new readers in particular.  I’m still on course to sell a million books before I die.Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000026_00015]

The River of Gold

The Tax Man

I’ve finally finished my chapter on the importance of rivers to taxation.  I cover all the major river systems of the world, as well as the seas and oceans, mountains and deserts, from Mesopotamia and the Nile, the Dardanelles, the Mediterranean, the Danube and Rhine, the Baltic straits, the Channel, France, the Alps, the Niger, American rivers, the Pacific, Chinese and Indian, and the greatest river of all, the Internet.

Let me know which is your favourite river, and you can help me proof-read the section, and get an advance read of the work.
