The Vengeful Queen by Deryk Cundy

The origins of this book are based on the many attempts to determine the location of the last battle fought by Boudica against the Romans – a mystery that has fascinated historians over the centuries. As a result of recent archaeological discoveries, the application of new sciences, mapping techniques and the access to information afforded by the Internet, new ideas have surfaced.

Through Deryk Cundy’s research it has become obvious that the history of the Britain of 2,000 years ago directly reflects ongoing conflicts, and that the events leading to the battle are as relevant today as they were then.

Imperialism, tribalism, gaps in technology, clashing cultures, trade, greed, globalisation, politics, religion, broken promises, rebellion, battles, treason, slavery – here is life and death on a grand scale.

To understand the background of this story, THE VENGEFUL QUEEN begins with the writings of Julius Caesar who recorded the early history of the Brythons during his incursions, and continues using information garnered from many sources, until the final battle of Boudica is revealed: a period of just over a hundred tempestuous years.

Some of the interpretations of this information will be regarded as contentious – indeed a challenge to conventional and established thinking.

THE VENGEFUL QUEEN casts light on the dark shadows where myth and reality collide….

Over 400 pages with colour photographs and illustrations.

A Lucky Strike – stories from Argentina’s toughest jail.

Lucky StrikeOUT SOON!

SURE TO BE AN INTERNATIONAL BEST SELLER!

RAWSON: the name of the infamous Patagonian prison in the town originally called, in Welsh, Trerawson, Rawson Town.  What was it like to be in Argentina’s toughest jail during the years of the ‘Dirty War’, between 1976 and 1983?

Pablo Bohoslavsky describes the experience, his own experience and that of others, brilliantly in this book.  Jailers and prisoners felt “proud”, it seems, to be at this maximum security prison.

With nothing to read for three years, inmates were denied family visits. There was no radio or TV. Censorship was absolute. There was no shortage of nocturnal transfers during which some prisoners were shot by application of  the “ley de fuga”, the infamous Flight or Escape Law.

Bohoslavsky takes you into the nightmare world into which many were plunged.

David Thorpe at Hay Lit Festival

Cambria Books author David Thorpe at the Hay Literature Festival promoting his book Stormteller and talking about climate change and new literature featuring climate themes.

From the Daily Telegraph

Climate activists are targeting children through a new range of ‘cli-fi’ – climate fiction – novels which seek to highlight the dangers of global warming.

David Thorpe, author of the book Stormteller, said that children were more open minded and claimed that writers could ‘infect’ their minds with ‘seriously subversive viral ideas’.

He was speaking at the Hay Festival alongside ‘cli-fi’ authors George Marshall and Saci Lloyd.

“I like writing for children because their minds are still forming,” said Mr Thorpe whose novel is set in a coastal Wales ravaged by climate change and rising sea levels.

Stormteller can be purchased from good bookshops, from the Welsh Books Council distribution and from us DIRECT.

Re-inventing Leadership by Dr.Paul Thomas

In the battle against management, Dr Paul Thomas is a man on a mission!

As seen in the BBC TV & Radio documentary ‘Ban the Boss’ documentary series.

A mission to support forward-thinking, progressive and ‘human’ business organisations by helping them to get rid of the plague of unnecessary middle management that he believes is stifling our working lives and our economy. But he doesn’t just see this as a local issue, but a global pandemic that is holding back the true potential of both individuals and businesses worldwide.

Champion of “the art of creating a leadership environment in which elite performance reveals itself” – Dr Paul Thomas believes true democracy, freedom, creativity and trust need to be at the heart of every organisation for it to flourish, maximise efficiency and profits, and continue to exist in the 21st century and beyond. Only in this sort of environment will people excel and great leaders truly exist.
