Swansea Then and Now – in Paperback

Then and Now Cover

I have received today copies of my book Swansea Then and Now which has been re-printed in paperback by History Press.  The original hardback edition was published in 2012.
There are no major changes to the text  – other than the addition of Matilda to the list of our grandchildren to whom the book has been dedicated. The cover price of the paperback edition is £14.99 – 96 pages, with 45 pairs of photographs comparing images from the past with the same place today.

You can find out more about the book on its own page on this website by clicking on this link – Swansea Then and Now

The publisher’s cover price has increased but you can buy it here on the website at the original price – £10.50 to include postage and packing.

With thanks to the History Press

Looks like April

I have checked the proofs of Welsh History Strange but True and sent them back. I am very pleased with how it has turned out. Having checked it all I am pleased to report that I have been rude to quite a few places in Wales. It is good to be even-handed. And it is a hardback too!

History Press tell me that it should be published in April 2014

Writing update

The new edition of Welsh Country Magazine (May 2013) contains my latest piece of work for them – the story of the submarine Thetis, wrecked off Anglesey in 1939 with huge loss of life on sea trials. It was recovered, refitted and renamed. As The Thundbolt it was on duty in the Mediterranean when it was sunk with all hands by Italian depth charges in March 1943.

I have also received the proofs of my next book – Swansea Murders. It contains the stories of 25 deaths in Swansea between 1730 and 1946. I am pleased with how it has turned out. It will be published by The History Press in June. Contact me for further details.

Swansea Book of Days

Pleased to report that I have received and returned my contract from History Press for a new book – The Swansea Book of Days. I am to deliver the text in June 2014 and it will be released in 2015. Before then I have to complete and submit Welsh History. Strange but True, probably for the end of October 2013. Best crack on, then.

Swansea Murder!

Submitted the text and the pictures for my next book to the publishers,  The History Press. It will be published in 2013. It is a catalogue of anger and derangement that starts in 1730 with the murder of the County Fiddler Morgan Matthews and ends with unsolved murder of Ernest Melville in 1949. The book will be fully illustrated and features excellent original art work from Charlotte Wood, Ditta Szalkai, Gill Figg and Angela Warne-Payne. Looking forward to seeing the final production!
