Researching the Kydd Novels #5

Researching the Kydd Novels #5

by BigJules

One of the elements of writing my Kydd tales that I particularly enjoy is the research, and it’s one of the things I’m most questioned about when I give talks or do author signings. There are many aspects of this – consulting primary and secondary sources, speaking to experts, undertaking location research, visiting museums and archives. I’m often asked about the length of time research for a book takes – that’s a difficult thing to quantify because in some ways I guess I have been doing it subconsciously all my life – during my years at sea absorbing the universals all mariners hold dear – and ingesting material from countless maritime books, both fiction and non-fiction, that I’ve been drawn to from an early age.

Who will win the content race?

Montpellier, July the 3rd 2017 – The digitisation of content and networks is resulting in rapid and profound changes in audiovisual consumption patterns, characterised by a disaffection for linear programming, rapid adoption of streaming and on-demand consumption, the arrival of new players and internationalisation of content and services. One of the only certainties in this restructuring and still unstable market is that the value travels all along the audiovisual chain up to production and ownership of video content.

The author followed a long career in the Danish Navy, as a torpedo boat skipper, missile corvette captain, intelligence officer and Soviet analyst, with a post as a teacher of naval warfare at the Royal Danish Navy Academy. – This is a well researched, and nicely illustrated book covering the much neglected conflict in the Baltic during WWII – Highly Recommended.
