Following the release of the first two books in the Dorset Chronicles series, I am delighted that WH Smith have offered me a book signing day. This will be held at the Sherborne branch on 11th May. I will be there from 10am so please mark it in your calendars/ phones/ scraps of paper and I very much look forward to meeting you then.


The address is:

WH Smith

60 Cheap St

Sherborne, DT9 3BJ

It is particularly appropriate to do a book signing in Sherborne as my new series, The Dorset Chronicles, features Sherborne and the fictional Earldom of Sherborne to a great extent.

The Dorset Chronicles is set in Dorset in the late Seventeenth century, a time of enormous change and development for the whole nation and often, in my opinion, overlooked. This period settled England as a parliamentary democracy with a constitutional monarchy. It also saw the first steps towards religious toleration, modern government and scientific and geographic discovery.

But all these developments were made through turmoil and unrest. Rebellion followed rebellion and nothing was certain except uncertainty.

It is the perfect setting for a new series.


The Dorset Chronicles will be launched on 12th April with the first two books in the series:


A New Lease on Freedom

1st Book in Chris Oswald’s series, ‘The Dorset Chronicles’


It Takes a Rogue

2nd Book in Chris Oswald’s series, ‘The Dorset Chronicles’









Both will be available from the 12th April and can be pre-ordered today! The third book, One Good Turn is planned for later this summer.

If you like historical fiction where fact and drama come together, this series is a must read.

Dorset-based, historical fiction author, Chris Oswald
