Synopsis: Ever wondered what it takes to become a Lord or Lady? Do you fancy joining the upper class? Like anything worth having, it doesn’t come cheap. How (Not) to Become a Lord or Lady is the definitive guide to British titles covering peerage titles (Duke, Marquess, Earl, Viscount and Baron), Scottish Feudal Baronies and how one can acquire a title.
If you’ve ever been tempted to buy land in Scotland to become a Laird, or thought it would be great to be the Lord of the Manor then How (Not) to become a Lord or Lady is a must-read. Approximately 7500 words.
Available to download from http://www.amazon.co.uk/How-Become-Lord-Lady-ebook/dp/B00DIH73QG and http://www.amazon.com/How-Become-Lord-Lady-ebook/dp/B00DIH73QG.
The British Peerage system with all its idiosyncrasies is a fascinating subject, and this ebook traces its roots back to the Norman Conquest, to present day legislation in a clear concise manner.
I particularly appreciated the author’s style of writing, which was authoritive without being condescending. In addition to making a complex subject comprehensible, a number of interesting facts pertaining to titles are examined, which results in a thoroughly enjoyable read, especially for history buffs.
Naturally, for those who aspire to join the nobility, this ebook is a must buy, and could liaterally save you a fortune, and metaphorically save your blushes.
Highly recommended, especially to fellow authors who aspire to write the next “Downton Abbey” novel as an invaluable reference.
