Harrogate History Festival

We were thrilled to attend the inaugural Harrogate History Festival in the company of many of our authors, including Robyn Young, Anthony Riches, Lindsey Davis and John Henry Clay. Our authors spoke brilliantly on topics ranging from war to Richard III and what it's like to walk Hadrian's Wall in full Roman armour!

A look back at 2013 . . .

It's been an exciting year for History Lives and here are just a few of our highlights:

- Stunning reissues of eight Herman Wouk novels (available for the first time in eBook), including the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Caine Mutiny 

A Sunday Times bestseller with The Ides of April by Lindsey Davis

- Our first Edward Rutherfurd publication, Paris

- Attending History in the Court: a wonderful opportunity to mingle with authors, publishers, agents, readers and the wonderful staff of Goldsboro Books in the historic setting of Cecil Court in the heart of London.

Next year!

Though our heads are often in the past, we also have a lot to look forward to! 

In 2014 there'll be lots of historical debuts, including: 

The Visitors by Rebecca Mascull (January 2014)

The Devil In The Marshalsea by Antonia Hodgson (March 2014)

An Appetite For Violets by Martine Bailey (May 2014)

Plague Land by S.D. Sykes (October 2014)

We also have the much-anticipated Kingdom, the epic conclusion to Robyn Young’s bestselling Insurrection trilogy. The publication of Kingdom will coincide with the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn and the vote on Scottish independence.
