Books, Landscapes and History

Add comment November 21st, 2009

As a former bookseller I retain a great interest in books, particularly on history, and as a web designer and consultant I tend to choose clients that I can really believe in and feel committed to.

This is certainly the case with the Highland estate of Glen Tanar on Royal Deeside in Aberdeenshire. Having visited the estate I can testify that it’s a delightful place with a sense of peace and history that are hard to beat.

They’ve just let me know that they hosted a book launch last week of a new book by a local author describing his boyhood life in the glen and researching the history of the area – Glen Tanar, Valley of Echoes and Hidden Treasures. From what I’ve been told it sounds an excellent book and I’m looking forward to reading it.

If you’re looking for a place to spend a relaxing highland break then I can recommend Glen Tanar, but even if not there’s some lovely pictures on the site and I’ll be adding more as we continue work on it.

Linda Gillard book to be optioned for the screen

I was delighted to hear this week that Linda Gillard’s second book, A Lifetime Burning, is to be the subject of an option contract to be turned into a film or TV series.  I do hope that this will be followed through, it would be a richly deserved reward for a fine writer.

She has a third book due out next year and I’m building some new pages for it on the website. She tells me that the production company were impressed with the site and want to read her other books too so we can both be well satisfied with the plaudits.
