Book Trailer for ‘The Lucky Shilling’


A visual summary of William’s story as a WW2 soldier produced as our new Book Trailer.

The Bridport News features The Lucky Shilling in their ‘Looking Back’ section.


It is always a milestone when  book authors  actually see, hold and turn the pages of the story they have crafted as a real book that can slot into a bookshelf, or carry in their bags to read on the go: to have and to hold!

The Bridport News features a double page spread in their ‘Looking Back’ section of the newspaper, that makes a mark on Keith Marsh’s achievement of compiling and self-publishing his Father’s story into his book.

If you like the books that Bernard Cornwell enjoys reading, then you might enjoy the books on his reading list.  It is simply a place where news of books can be exchanged – any books – not just historical novels.

Bernard Cornwell began as a researcher on the Nationwide programme and ended as Head of Current Affairs Television for the BBC in Northern Ireland. He met Judy, a visiting American, and fell in love. Judy was unable to move to Britain for family reasons so Bernard went to the States where he was refused a Green Card. He decided to earn a living by writing, a job that did not need a permit from the US government – and for some years he had been wanting to write the adventures of a British soldier in the Napoleonic wars – and so the Sharpe series was born.
