Long Time No See!
I know it’s been silent around here for a while, but rest assured the book is still happening! Non-fiction, especially one like this that branches into so many small and detailed aspects of medieval life, requires a lot of extensive research & fact checking. It’s not a quick and easy thing to write, so the turn-around is a big longer than if it was of a different genre! I want to make it something as entertaining as it is informative—and as correct as possible, since the middle ages in England is something I care about deeply and don’t want to do a disservice to in my presentation of it to you all. So I want to thank you for your patience and understanding in waiting for the book for so long!
I’m currently aiming to have the book finished by this coming spring. Originally the deadline was earlier, but I’ve had a bad run with carpal and cubital tunnel syndrome in both my arms, as well as an extremely heavy workload, all of which left me unable to work on the book at all for a few months. For this I’m greatly sorry, but I didn’t want to risk my health and cause further damage to my arms by pushing through it. Thankfully I’m doing better now and can get back to seriously writing hundred and hundreds and thousands of words about people dying!
I can’t provide an estimated publication date, since I’m just the author and not the publisher, but I will do my absolute best to keep you all informed with how the book is progressing after this! Currently I’m researching deeper into some of the deaths requested by $115 tier backers. We’ve got cesspits, drunken loitering and opprobrious words. Oh, and rest assured there are already chapters about clerks, murderous clerks, pig deaths and one I’ve titled “John Wick Goes Medieval”.
Thank you all again so much for your support and your patience! I hope you all have wonderful starts to the new year and have a clerk-free 2020!
