...and good things in 2023.
Eboracum Roman Festival 2022
After a gap of 2 (or 1600) years, depending on how you view it, the Romans were back in York last weekend. It was a joy to spend time with visitors, Romans, readers, writers and even the occasional barbarian. A few pics and possibly a snip of video will follow: What are you doing for … Continue reading Eboracum Roman Festival 2022
Kindle bargains for UK and Australia!
I've saved this till after midday as, despite appearances, it's not an April Fool. Amazon UK really have knocked down the price of all 8 full-length Medicus novels to 99p each (!) on Kindle until 30 April, and I'm told that they're $1.49 each on Amazon.com/au this month, too. That's a whole series* for £7.92 … Continue reading Kindle bargains for UK and Australia!
Bloomsbury Black Friday Bonanza
UPDATE - This offer is now closed. Thanks to everyone who managed to catch it, and sorry to those who didn't. If it happens again I will spread the word ASAP! This is hard to believe, but I've just seen it on Twitter, so it must be true. Just for today, Bloomsbury USA are putting … Continue reading Bloomsbury Black Friday Bonanza
A one-day bargain for US readers – 18 June
The blue bird of Twitter has flown across the Atlantic to say that Memento Mori (Ruso and Tilla's visit to Aquae Sulis) is only $1.99 on Kindle in the USA today! It might be on this link to Amazon.com but I can't tell from here in England. Anyway, once you find it, you don't need … Continue reading A one-day bargain for US readers – 18 June
A sudden flurry of activity
Well, having been quietly hibernating for the last few months, I'll be springing into action and giving not one but two online talks in early May. Should any kind folk care to join me, there's no charge for either of the talks and both are going out via Zoom, so they should be accessible wherever … Continue reading A sudden flurry of activity
Blades and Banter, the postscript
Big thanks to everyone who joined us yesterday evening! It was a privilege to be invited into your computer screens and I hope you enjoyed it. When I finally worked out how to read the comments, they were a delight. Hopefully nobody ran screaming from the room at the gory bits (unfortunately when you let … Continue reading Blades and Banter, the postscript
Blades and Banter – in conversation with Ben Kane
Looking forward to a Saturday evening chat with fellow "Roman" author Ben Kane on 23 January! We'll be safely Zooming from our own homes and I've been assured that despite the title, weapons won't be necessary. So instead of sharpening my nonexistent sword I've bought a new webcam, and it's worked! I no longer look … Continue reading Blades and Banter – in conversation with Ben Kane
England is in limited lockdown as I write, and non-essential shops are closed until 2 December. This means local booksellers will miss out on several of their busiest weeks of the year. The big online retailers will be fine, but our nearest bookshop is owned and run almost single-handedly by one man. Like many others, … Continue reading #SignForOurBookshops
