I think this new book sounds interesting. It's about Edward II and his alleged lover Piers Gaveston. The story is told by Piers. Since there is very little actually known about Piers, I definitely want to read this book. The first chapter can be read here. - http://www.geocities.com/bkpbooks/Gaveston_chapter1.html  The cover art is awful, but the first chapter is good.

I've added it to my wishlist, but this is a small press, internet book, so I'll probably just have to buy it eventually. I wish more authors would write about historical ficgures like Piers, instead of the Tudors. Give us something different already!

Thanks for posting the link to the first chapter! I added this book to my wishlist the other day after I was reading the historical fiction thread on Amazon and the author of this book posted. You are right, the cover art is awful, but after reading the first chapter, I really want the book!
