HUZZAH! A B.R.A.G. Medallion for THE PLAYER!

I’m thrilled to announce that THE PLAYER has been honoured with a B.R.A.G. (Book Readers’ Appreciation Group) Medallion.

The B.R.A.G. review process is lengthy and detailed and, of the books submitted, only 20% to 25% are awarded a medallion.

Here is what the B.R.A.G, reviewer had to say:-
“This is a GREAT novel. It is the best novel I’ve read for indieBRAG. I am pleased to give it a very high rating. I have found a new historical romance author. THANK YOU. I love this book so much I had to get a paperback copy as well to have and to hold. One of the most fun stories I have ever read. I love, love, love this book and recommend it for a B.R.A.G. medallion.”

GENTLEMAN’S PISTOLS

A cased pair of gentleman’s percussion pistols by S. W. Berry of Woodbridge – circa 1845 and all completely original.  Everything a gentleman would need; percussion caps, powder flask, mould for making lead shot … and none of it ever used.

Even the label inside the lid of the case is original  and apparently this is rare.  We know it’s original because it is embossed – copies are not.


The amount of detail in the engraving is incredible. Pretty things, aren’t they?

After my two 17th century swords – one cavalry and one naval – pistols seemed a logical step. For those who don’t recall the swords, here they are.
