This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle, This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars, This other Eden, demi-paradise, This fortress built by Nature for herself Against infection and the hand of war, This happy breed of men, this little world, This precious stone set in the silver sea, Which serves it in the office of a wall Or as a moat defensive to a house, Against the envy of less happier lands,-- This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England. ~~William Shakespeare, Richard III

This Day in History...

September 5, 1774 - The first session of the Continental Congress meets at Carpenter's Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This was in response to Parliament's enacting of the Coercive Acts. 56 delegates from all the colonies (except Georgia) drafted a declaration of grievances and rights.


  1. Who is publishing The Tudor Rose?
    I have just had a novel with the same titled published this year on sale worldwide and wonder if the other author knows. However I cannot read the name on the cover you posted. Can you tell me?

  2. I believe it is Sourcebooks Landmark. I have seen two different covers though.
