Sourcebooks, the USA publishers of my fiction (written by me as 'James Forrester'), are running a promotion through April 2013. If you preorder a copy of The Roots of Betrayal before 30 April, then you can download a free ebook of the first in the trilogy, Sacred Treason. Details are on the James Forrester website.

New website for The Time Traveller's Guides
The Time Traveller's Guides project now has its own dedicated website, designed by James Housego of Jam Design, and tinkered with by me to the point where he probably wants to deny all knowledge of it. Click on www.timetravellersguides.com to see how it looks.

Work on new book, and an article
Back in Devon, having been away in Germany. A successful talk in Karlsruhe, at the American Library, to a very receptive audience. Visited Speyer Cathedral and Heidelberg Schloss. Very pleased to go to Speyer as it features in chapter one of the new book, Centuries of Change. Progress continues on that. Many other little projects underway. I'm particularly pleased with my article on the history of breakfasts, which will appear in the April edition of BBC History Magazine.

All the filming for the BBC2 series based on my Time Traveller's Guide to Elizabethan England is now finished. Studio shooting was completed the week before last at the Linen Mill studio in Banbridge, Northern Ireland (where the HBO series, 'Game of Thrones' is filmed). And the last pickup day, filming in London, was last Friday - at the Globe and the Golden Hinde. Now comes the difficult bit: editing me into an acceptable form. That, I am happy to say, is not my responsibility.

I heard today that my Time Traveller's Guide to Medieval England will be published in Taiwan. Also a Chinese edition should appear later this year. Who would have thought that medieval England would prove publishable in the Far East?
