The Bleeding Land – book trailer released
April 19, 2012
It’s always a cause for celebration when a new Giles Kristian novel comes out, but this one’s particularly interesting, because he has switched era to the time of Cavaliers and Roundheads. The English Civil War used to be one of the most popular subjects for historical fiction, but has fallen out of favour lately. If you’ve ever wondered why this should be, I’ll be writing about it here on the 26th April, release date for The Bleeding Land - and about why I hope authors like Giles will bring this era firmly back into the mainstream of historical fiction. Giles has also promised us some signed copies of the novel, which we’ll happily mail internationally to anyone who wins them (date to remember: Thursday 26th April – we’ll be posting our review of The Bleeding Land then too). For now, enjoy the trailer! (And there’s an interesting mini interview about how it was made on the Falcata Times blog).
