The Land of Counterpane


Tricia Price appreciation

Tricia Price

Tricia Price is one of our authors who does not do modern technology. She joined the TSL fold following the recommendation of a long-standing friend of hers whose books TSL had also published – Pamela Howarth who died in 2020. Like Pamela’s, Tricia’s books had been typed on the old-fashioned typewriter and needed transcribing into electronic format before they could be published – of our four authors who do not engage with modern technology, only two are still with us – how times have changed.
Tricia’s three books with TSL all have an historical theme:
* one for adults: Thirty-Seven Guns about Lord Byron,
* one for the older young person: Christopher Crown and the Immortal Signal, a fantasy where a young boy falls asleep on the beach and in his dream joins Nelson on his flagship,
* one for the younger young person: The Land of Counterpane, a collection of short adventures where a young girl encounters different historical characters at night.
All three books gently take the reader on a journey into the past encountering adventure along the way. It was good to hear that the person who transcribed the texts for Tricia enjoyed the stories too – always a good boost for both the author and the publisher.
So, if you are looking for a trip down memory lane into by-gone times with a gentle dose of British-focused adventure, then I strongly recommend Tricia’s books.

(There are only a few paper copies of Pamela’s books still available for sale: The Windspeare Lot; The Hidden Sun)
