BIOGRAPHY and AUTOBIOGRAPHY,
HISTORY
Yeonmi Park has told the harrowing story of her escape from North Korea as a child many times, but never before has she revealed the most intimate and devastating details of the repressive society she was raised in and the enormous price she paid to escape.

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.

Inkflash gets something of a facelift

Site News
11 April 2016

Probably not before time, we've decided to re-focus the site on 3D book previews and reviews - meaning that on the front page you'll see a steady stream of new content from both big-name authors and indie publishers. A 3D book preview is a bit like the 'look inside' feature on Amazon, except you can zoom in, turn the book around, tilt it etc; and the book "exists" within a 3D space with its own lighting and scenery. Check the top of the front page for examples!

And with that new focus comes a new site design. Not actually that dissimilar from the old one, but with cleaner edges.

The author rooms will, of course, continue to be a big part of the site, especially as we start to add more interactive book trailers like this one. Check back often for revolutionary new 3D content!
