welcome to isoldemartyn.com

Dear Readers, welcome!

Am so delighted to announce that the first e-book of THE SILVER BRIDE is now available from Momentum. So also are new e-editions of THE MAIDEN AND THE UNICORN, FLEUR-DE-LIS and THE KNIGHT AND THE ROSE.

A big noisy THANK YOU to the Panmacmillan Momentum team who made it possible. I am really delighted about these e-books with their fresh covers because it’s such a lovely happening after a sad time in March. I was summoned across to the UK at the end of February because my aged dad had a chest infection and the GP had declared he was to have ‘end of life care’. I was on a plane by 7pm that day from Sydney with as quick a transit as possible in Singapore. Still had to take a train journey down to Dorset from Heathrow but, tragically, I arrived twenty minutes too late. Typical Dad! He always was impatient. That news after over 28 hours of travelling left me stunned and maybe I’ve still to come to terms with it all. It’s certainly not easy being an only daughter and living the other side of the world.

What made that miserable week so much more bearable were all the messages of kind thoughts that flooded in from friends all over the world.

Thank you so much.

PlantagenetsLogoPlantagenet Society of Australia
About 15 years ago, six of us started a history society dedicated to the Plantagenet era (Henry II—Richard III). We meet six times a year and our invited speakers are experts from many fields.
Now, our wonderful online wizard has created a Facebook Page and we are hoping to put up some videos of talks. It’s kicking off with my talk last year on ‘Medieval Widows -- Fettered or Footloose?

The Facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/PlantagenetSocietyofAustralia1154/

We are hoping other speakers this year will be happy for us to video extracts or whole talks.
