My new book “Daughters of the North: Jean Gordon and Mary, Queen of Scots” is officially published this Thursday, 17th March.
People who have pre-ordered copies are starting to receive them already.
Because of covid, there will be no public launch on Thursday, but I do have some special events planned, both in-person and online. On Saturday 19th March, I am doing a private talk, with afternoon tea, for members of the Marie Stuart Society. And on 19th April I am doing a special in-depth talk about Jean Gordon for History Scotland magazine: more details on that, and information on how to book a place, is on their website here: https://www.historyscotland.com/virtual-events/online-lectures//lady-jean-gordon-countess-of-bothwell-19-april-2022
There are also further events planned for later.
Some reviews of my book are also starting to appear, including one from Allan Massie in the Scotsman at the weekend, who found it “deeply researched and detailed”.
