Hi Bobbie, and to all.
It has been a while since I brought ‘Edward’ to Nurture Your Books.
In that time there have been changes, including self-publication to an improved paper standard and radically reduced price, and the brand new interactive Epub and PDF editions now brought to you FREE today.
EBooks should not be mere electronic copies of paper books. There are massive cost and storage advantages when an eBook is no more than this, but it hardly touches the potential an eBook can offer.
Edward is a deep and powerful book anyway: it’s a Love story, an Adventure story and it blows the lid off conventional Tudor History. There are detailed, accurate conversations involving even seemingly minor characters to a level not otherwise to be found in historical fact or fiction, and the way this was achieved was through extraordinarily detailed past-life regression, over a long period of time, rigorously checked by present day research.
At the same time, reviews say it still has pace, and I do like to think it moves well. The only way to do this was to keep to the action round the main character; and yet, it is nice to know Sir Reginald Bray was almost the King’s prime minister, as well as serving the King’s mother, that Edward’s receiver for Brecon, who tried to warn him about Tudor embezzlement, was the man who killed Richard III. There is a great deal more, and the only way you can get to this is with hyperlinks and the only way you can get hyperlinks is with an eBook. I have inserted a good number of hyperlinks.
Embedding video, like embedding pictures, would increase file size, possibly alarmingly. There are 4 embedded pictures, but I’ve included 2 video introductions without having to embed them. This is a start, there is room for development, and Edward shall grow; as the website supporting the book has already grown.
Accordingly, you are invited to join a project, by your feedback you will help improve the product – and be given credit for it.
Maybe that should be enough. Yet there is the aspect of past-life regression: how it was done, how checked and verified, a great deal of mystical material besides, and all brought to rational reality. If anything could top the cataclysmic climax of Edward’s story it is the author’s vertiginous final interview with the ‘Nine Worthies.’
It is truly possible to say Edward has outgrown paper covers; but how much of this a reader takes on is up to the reader; after all, the book by itself is still a rattling good read - see the reviews on the website. You can have more, join the project!
And please - leave feedback.
