Two years old today…and over a hundred-and-seventy posts…

…and still going strong. The Daniel Cure Official Author’s blog this year shares its birthday with its author (still time to send your presents to me, thanks) and Easter Monday. Chocolate eggs are also welcome.

On this day, 350 years ago, King Charles II is crowned for the second time...

In continuation of my “on this day” mini-series, I move away from the Wars of the Roses and skip forward two hundred years. On this day, 350 years ago, King Charles II of England, Scotland, Ireland is crowned in Westminster Abbey, for the second time. He had fled the country following the civil war and the death of his father at the hands of Oliver Cromwell (and having subsequently failed at the Battle of Worcester). Thus began the Restoration and a period of “merry-making” throughout the land, following the dour misery of Puritanical Britain.

The Quests of The Silver Knight

For those who have raised this question…I have only three chapters left to write. It should…at least as a first draft…be completed this year.

The quest has simply been to write the thing, without even thinking about the editing and publishing process!
