Competition time again!

It’s just over two weeks until Spartacus: Rebellion is launched here in the UK! To celebrate, I am giving away signed copies of 4 large format paperback, and 2 hardbacks. In addition, the first four winners will also receive a tiny replica bronze gladius, an item which was worn around the neck as a charm. Examples have been found all over the Roman Empire.

Just answer me this: Where was Spartacus reputedly from?

One entry per person please, either here, on Twitter, FB or by email. Competition closes around midday UK time on the 7th of August.

    I was so happy to hear that the book was gonna be in two parts…and it’s good to see that you have so many fans that support you and obviously from reading your books you have huge support from you family, which I know can be really important.
    Thanks for bringing Spartacus to life and I look forword to reading the second part.
    Answer: Spartacus was from Thrace.
