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!
Never work with children or animals.
VITA BREVIS finally makes it into paperback in the UK today (hooray!) so it seems right to mark the occasion. I can hardly have a launch party for a book that's been out in hardback and ebook for some time now, but on the other hand, unless people know it's there, who will buy it? … Continue reading Never work with children or animals.

Thursday on the blog tour – Roma Nova
Blog tour day 6, and thanks to the splendid Alison Morton for the invitation to join her love-me*-love-my-character series for a chat about Ruso.

Sunday on the blog tour – SJA Turney, plus a brief diversion
Today I'm visiting The Worlds of SJA Turney. Simon was one of the co-conspirators on our book about the Boudiccan rebellion, A Year of Ravens, but there are no rebel queens in this piece - I've been pondering the difference between writing about Roman Britain and writing about Rome itself. Not content with living … Continue reading Sunday on the blog tour – SJA Turney, plus a brief diversion
