This autumn is the most hectic autumn in my entire 54 age life. Soon my novel The White Lady will be released – most likely in October – thanks to my fabulous translator Catrine Bollerslev and my proofreader Anna Campbell. Great girls both. I really wish them a great future, because they deserve it. No doubt! I couldn’t make it without them, that’s for sure. However, there are other duties for me as well. At least for me as a family man.
On the 15th of September, my dear wife Irena and I finally managed to finish a wall with four new windows at our cabin, which is located on an island close to the border of Sweden. That was a lot of work as well.
But now I can focus on my authorship again, and I continuous with a small novel which is connected to my novel Kayaweta. It’s based on one of the character’s – the knight Tubbe Eriksson – and his letter to the kings of Norway and Sweden. Dated 16th of February 1372.
It’s an authentic medieval diploma. No fake.
It reads like this:
“I, Tubbe Eriksson, greet most humbly with God King Magnus and King Hakon, with God`s grace, kings of Norway and Sweden. I make known to you that I have left Örebro and I am now abiding an answer to this letter if you want to have my service and want to give me help in West Götaland – to Norway I will not go – and I cannot wait long because I have many people. Whatever you want me to do – make it known with this letter carrier. Indeed, I have other options, but will not decide upon another before I hear your wishes.”
Based on this medieval letter, that I received from one of the best researchers around the controversial Kensington stone, Richard Nielsen, I will now make a historical fiction where I use my imagination freely without any other historical facts – seen through the knight Tubbe Eriksson`s eyes and why he says:
“to Norway, I will not go …”
I would dearly interact with my readers and please don’t hesitate; just send me an email because your opinions are important to me. Thanks.
Please stay tuned.
