How Charles Baudelaire’s Poetry Changed My Life

Author News
25 October 2016

It’s true that literature can change your life. It changed Belgian author Bob Van Laerhoven’s. He told Inkflash:

"Because of  Les Fleurs du Mal (The Flowers Of Evil), Charles Baudelaire’s magnificent collection of poetry, I wanted to become a writer. Fat chance, everyone around me said."

In a short personal essay for the US-based writers’ blog Motive Means Opportunity, he evokes the nostalgic memory of a 17-year old Flemish country-boy, desperately wanting to create beauty.

Bob is also the author of mystery/suspense novel Baudelaire’s Revenge, which won the Hercule Poirot Prize for Best Crime Novel and the USA Best Book Award 2014 in the Fiction category. Check out a 3D preview here on Inkflash, or get totally immersed in the author’s interactive 3D room.

JASPER: New historical novel from Welsh author Tony Riches

Book News
25 May 2016

With JASPER – Book Two of The Tudor Trilogy available to preview in 3D, Inkflash remains a wonderful place to explore new historical fiction.

England 1461: The young King Edward of York takes England by force from King Henry VI of Lancaster. Sir Jasper Tudor, Earl of Pembroke, flees the massacre of his Welsh army at the Battle of Mortimer’s Cross and plans a rebellion to return his half-brother King Henry to the throne.

Following the best-selling novel OWEN - Book One of The Tudor Trilogy, the follow-up, based on actual events, tells of Owen’s son Jasper Tudor who changes the history of England forever. Set in the often brutal world of fifteenth century England, Wales, Scotland, France, Burgundy and Brittany, during the Wars of the Roses, this fast-paced story is one of courage and adventure, love and belief in the destiny of the Tudors.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Based in Southwest Wales, Tony Riches is a full time author of best-selling fiction and non-fiction books. For more about Tony's books, see his popular blog The Writing Desk, and of course his 3D castle here at Inkflash.
