I have some Margaret Rock news.

In my last post about Margaret Rock (click here to see it), I thought I would be able to get my project into the public domain earlier in the year. However, life has other plans and the information I have found about Margaret continues to grow. The project has grown and is now more than just about Margaret. Her life is so inextricably linked to that of her brother, John Frank Rock, Royal Engineer and Airborne forces pioneer. So much so that they will be sharing the limelight.

I also have another launch date planned. The 11th July 2013.

I have a lot of work to do before then but what you get will be an innovative approach to publishing. First there will be a digital book and a printed book of letters between Margaret Rock and her brother. There will be some commentary to create the historical backdrop to the day-to-day lives of these remarkable people. I have used the light touch here as I want you to enjoy them in their raw beauty as much as possible.

The accompanying website will be the home of the greater exploration into their lives and will consist of interviews of family, friends and experts. There will videos, audio, transcripts, copies of original letters, school reports, examination papers and many, many photographs. What is more, I will update this multi-media book and website as new material comes to light. That way there will always be more for you to enjoy and learn.

I am really excited about this and I can’t wait to share it with you. Also, if you haven’t already sign up to my newsletter as I have more exciting news about to connections I’ve made to Margaret’s past and how it is generating interest in this project.

This book and website aims to give you a truly multi-media experience. Please take a minute and leave a comment below.

Do you prefer to experience material by video, audio or in a written format? You could be like me and listen, watch and read depending on where I am.

    • Thanks Craig, although there are parts of their relationship that will never be known (or shared), you are correct – I did mean inextricably. I will make the change. Thanks for taking the time to get in touch.

  1. Deciphering the fascinating lives of these fascinating people at a most fascinating time: I envy you! And I agree that you should use the full scope of media to present the most informative, compelling story of the pair.

    • Thanks Brad, I hope to present the material in a way that allows you to explore and find your own stories in the material. I then hope you will share with the rest of us.
