Book update

Some readers will know that during my Research Leave I have been working on a book-length study of the ‘Knights Templar estates’ material, The Everyday Life of the Templars, for  Fonthill Media: http://fonthillmedia.com/. The book is due for submission at the end of this year.

The first draft of the book is complete, but it’s too long! So I am trying to shorten it, which is proving difficult.

    No, don’t shorten it!

      I now have a short and a long version. I think I’ll send both to the publisher and ask for their views! If I have to use the short version, I’ll publish the material I cut out somewhere else.
