Last free day for Tom Fleck

This is an unusual historical novel. Set in 1513, the year of Flodden (recall the lament: Flowers of the Forest?). The Kindle version is free until the end of Tuesday 12 March. I’d like this story to be better known. Please enjoy. From Amazon only.

‘Tom Fleck’ came, in part, as a response to what greets me when I walk into bookshops: glossy covers of historical novels that push jewelled Tudor cleavages at the reader – and within, yet more tangled intrigues of royal courts. I seldom feel an emotional connection with these great lords and their ladies. Where are the stories of the ancestors of ordinary people? I don’t see any. So I’ve written a story of the life and adventures of forgotten men and women, people without heraldry, people who left no record except for the blood that, at least poetically, might still flow in our modern veins.
