Spring is finally here and the sun is beginning to shine.  This has always been my favourite season, as the new found warmth in the air puts a smile on everyone’s face.  In this spirit, I have decided to reduce the cost the Ebook\Kindle version of my novel Roman Mask for the rest of the week.  The price will return to normal on Sunday, so grab it whilst you can!  This will apply to the Amazon Kindle version, and the iPad version, and the Nook version which you can buy and Barnes and Noble or Google books.

Rome AD 9

Augustus Caesar rules Imperial Rome at the height of its power, as the Roman Empire stretches across the known world.  Cassius, son of one of her most powerful families, is the personification of Rome’s imperial strength: wealthy, popular, a war hero with a decorated military career – none of Rome’s fashionable parties are complete without him – except, he hides a secret.

After his nerve is broken in Germany, the thought of genuine armed combat is enough to send him into a cold sweat of fear and shame.  But this doesn’t dissuade him from living off a false reputation so he can continue a life of casual affairs, wine, and parties, as he is seduced by the many vices of Rome.

However his scandalous life is soon upset by a summons from the Emperor’s wife.  It ends his happy decadent life and returns him to Germany to assist the Roman legions in their greatest ever trial, and the events that will resound down in history, in the dark forests of the Teutoburg…

    • Hi James, I’m glad you enjoyed my novel, it’s great hearing positive feedback. The good news is that I have started writing the sequel and the first eight chapters are complete. The bad news is that I have no idea how long it will take me. Unfortunately, I’m not one of those writers who can produce new novels really quickly, and I’m quite a slow writer. I periodically need to stop and reflect, to research some historical aspect of my work etc. I understand this must be frustrating, but it means the finished product is far superior. Historical accuracy is very important to me as a writer.
      However, next week I hope to publish a post on this blog about holiday I took to research my new book, this may give you some insight into what lies in store…

        Hi Thomas I fully understand your sentiment I am firmly in the quality not quantity camp. Enjoy the holiday and the research. I recently finished working in Tunisia and visited a Roman fort on the island of Kerkennah as well as the coliseum in Jem both were facinating as well as impressive.
