After talking with my client, I came up with an idea to try to fundraise for the church. . The church is desperate for renovation and is not getting any financial support for the authorities. After browsing through St Mary’s magazines from the past, I found a story that I thought could be sold on Amazon, this would help the church to attain funds. I was also interested in the story because it was written in 1500’s and by an unknown author. What I found really interesting about this story, was how a Catholic priest betrayed a Christian Priest, through this deception the priest was order to burn by the stake. His wife and eldest son went to Queen Mary to pardon her husband.
After reading this story I found that in the 1500’s there was a bishop called Bonner who is also in the story, and the Queen Mary sentenced men to death by the stake. I looked further and found that this story could have been a true account. The reason I thought this was because the detail of how the author ( whoever he was) had such information and the fact that whoever wrote this did not want to be known. Queen Mary was also identified how she looked towards the end. The author also names a place in London which was called Smithfield, a well-known place for people to die by the stake.
I spoke to my client regards to the story and he thought it was a good idea.
I thought about a book cover, I designed the cover, with two images.
I added Queen Mary on the cover surrounded by fire. In the story, the final decision is down to Mary. Does she over throw the final rule? or does she sentence the priest to death? while I edited the story, I actually could vision this story as a film. I feel this could help St Mary’s if this is done properly and properly promoted. The story is definitely interesting and certainly could be a true account of the 1500’s
In the story, I have added just a few images, that I had taken and one originally from St Mary’s past.
The book is already to be published, However,I have to contact the client and ask if he would like to add anything such as an acknowledgment
At the end of the printed version I will put all rights reserved to St Mary’s Church, Lowgate, Hul
