Win a FREE copy of my new book!

I'm offering a free, signed hardback copy of my new book Long Live the King: The Mysterious Fate of Edward II! All you have to do to win is leave a comment with your email address, either here or on my Edward Facebook page, or if you prefer, you can send me an email at: edwardofcaernarfon(at)yahoo(dot)com. It doesn't matter where in the world you are, as long as you have a postal address I can send the book to! You can ask for any dedication you like as well.

The closing date is Wednesday 16 August, midnight Central European Time. The following day, I will randomly select a winner and notify you via email, at which point you can give me your postal address and any special dedication you'd like me to write in the book.

Long Live the King is a thorough investigation of both a) Edward II's murder in 1327, what chronicles say about it, the fate of his alleged murderers, his funeral in Gloucester, etc, and b) his possible survival after that date, citing all the evidence in its favour. There's a long section called 'Arguments For and Against' both his murder and his survival, Appendices quoting the Fieschi and Melton Letters and other evidence in both English and the original French and Latin, and an Afterword and appeal for help by my friend Ivan Fowler of the Auramala Project. (Please check out their website; they're doing fab research into the possibility of Edward's survival in Italy.) My aim was to provide readers with all the wealth of evidence both for and against Edward's murder in 1327, and let you make up your own minds. It's intriguing that there's so much evidence for both. Will we ever be able to establish for certain whether Edward died at Berkeley Castle in 1327 or not?

Best of luck!

We all love a good historical mystery. Nearly everything we think we 'know' about Edward has been challenged in recent years ;) The mystery of his death deserves to be up there in the public consciousness with the princes in the tower whodunnit in the public consciousness! boromir43@hotmail.com

Your writing is amazing - so well documented that it has established a much-higher bar for other writers to aspire to. Have a personal fascination with Edward II as my ancestor was pardoned by Edward II (by name, no less) for his support of Lancaster in 1322. Brian briansmithdc@aol.com

I just want to get the signed copy of the book, that is all. Like really bad. Like really really bad. I have the two previous books and this is The Must for me.

If I luck out, I am still going to get it. And the next one too. These are the best medieval history stuff out there today and I can not recommend them enough to every one interested in medieval times and events and persons.

Huh. Already bought and read. And you convinced me that the fate of Sir Edward of Caernarfon will never be certainly known as long as the laws of physics preclude time travel.

I anticipate your most recent book will be treasured as much as the treasured insights that are in all your books.
