For the elite history fans.

For £5 a month I will offer a degree of editorial control - if you want a subject covered, I will cover it! I will also allow you to view some of my uncompleted works - including a historical novel - and will endeavour to organise a group zoom call, or (if/when possible) a face-to-face meet.

History. You may not have loved it as a school subject, but, admit it, you're secretly interested. It has shaped the world around us, and it remains all around us. It is exciting, dramatic, full of scarcely believable characters and full of action. Can you really afford not to love it?

My blog details interesting stories and people from history in a casual and engaging style. You may have heard of some of my subjects, but I generally aim to shed some light on some of history's lesser known stories and characters. Want to know about the paranoid King whose suicide was unsuccessful because he had made himself immune to poison? Or the woman who rose from poverty to take on (and beat) the Emperor of China? Look no further than here. 

I'll level with you. I'm a one man band who works full time outside of my blog and is losing money just paying for the website maintenance and research! Any money you can give will allow me to carry on producing content.

If you are a writer or content creator, whether your subject is history or not, I understand how much of a struggle it is to get your project off the ground. In that spirit, if you donate to my patreon page I will be more than happy to promote your work on my blog and twitter page!
