BigJules Blog

Post by 80 Winters on Fri 06 Sep 2013, 06:01

Julian Stockwin opened a new channel to maintain contact with his fans earlier this Summer, his BigJules blog allows him to present his current thoughts and actions while allowing for immediate 'feedback'.

Much like his newsletter Olla Podrida which ended not long before his 'blog' began, it still offers contests that bring rewards to those with good memories (or complete libraries) as well as historical AOS facts that span the scale from major to trivia.

It's available at the link (below) and if you subscribe, it will be delivered to your email address automatically:

On today's Big Jules blog (posted 10 Oct 2013) Julian has given his blog over to a guest blogger; Commander Tyrone Martin who was the Captain of USS Constitution in the mid-1970s. Following his retirement, Commander Martin has done extensive research of the 'active history of his ship. Today's blog concerns the historic 'naval engagements' she participated in during the War of 1812, which I find both 'insightful' and fairly measured:

This morning (3 Apr 2014) on Big Jules Blog comes the announcement that Julian's Kydd series will now be available in 'ebook format' in Omnibus collections begin this month:


Ebooks to Go: The Kydd Collection
by BigJules  




"When I first started writing the Kydd series, the story of one man’s journey from pressed man to admiral in the Great Age of Fighting Sail, there were few ebooks around – now they’re rivalling physical books in terms of sales and popularity!"



The Kydd Ebook Collection, Bundle 1
The Kydd Ebook Collection
Bundle 1

One of the things I’ve discovered about publishing since becoming an author is that this industry never rests on its laurels and is continually finding new ways to serve readers.

All my Kydd titles are available as ebooks around the world in various formats – kindle, epub, iBooks etc. and it is a great pleasure for me to announce the launch today of the first of my UK publisher Hodder & Stoughton’s Kydd Collection Ebook Bundles. This comprises the first three books – Kydd, Artemis and Seaflower.

Kydd

Thomas Paine Kydd, a young wig-maker from Guildford, is seized by the press gang, to be a part of the crew of the 98-gun line-of-battle ship Royal William. The ship sails immediately and Kydd has to learn the harsh realities of shipboard life fast.

Artemis

Now a true Jack Tar, Kydd sails into Portsmouth Harbour and a hero’s welcome after a ferocious battle against the French. However his jubilation is cut short when a family matter threatens to take him from the life he has grown to love.

Seaflower

It is two years since Thomas Kydd was spirited away in the night to serve his country aboard the old line-of-battle ship Duke William. Now, he and and the other members of the ill-fated Artemis are shipwrecked sailors, back in London waiting to be summoned as court martial witnesses.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Get the Kydd Collection 1 on Amazon
Bundle 2 – Mutiny, Quarterdeck and Tenacious will be published on April 10
Bundle 3 – Command, The Admiral’s Daughter and Treachery on April 17
Bundle 4 – Invasion, Victory and Conquest on April 24

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Published in the US by McBooks Press as widely available single title ebooks.
The first nine titles of the Kydd series in Japanese are available as ebooks.
NB: Treachery was published as The Privateer’s Revenge in the US
