Hannibal – the bestseller!

You heard it first here – only 4 days after its release, Hannibal has entered the UK bestseller charts at No. 7!! Woo hoo!

It’s absolutely brilliant news, and it’s all down to you, my wonderful readers. So a heartfelt thank you to you all. I raise my beer to every last one of you. As we say in Ireland, “Slainte!”

    @Parmenion: thank you very much. I’ve called it a day at two pints (shock! horror!) because I have a big day tomorrow, out and about, visiting no less than nine (9) Waterstone’s with three other historical writers. Will be a busy one, and I’ve no need of a hangover. You’re a wise man not to imbibe at all.

    @Ben: I have rolled in from many a night in the past, and really put my half Irish side to the test in years past… Im no longer allowed the booze (pesky medication) but i will admit i dont miss the morning after. I remember (or dont) taking 4 hours to get home from St Paddys day…the pub was only 800 meters from my front door!!!…. (never worked that one out).

    @Parmenion: At least you gave the Irish half its time in the sun! That 800 metres sounds like Hannibal’s epic journey over the Alps. I’ve never done that, no never… 😉

    @Norabatiatus: thanks a million! Spartacus at 135k words, and nearing its end – at least until book two… 😉

    I have recently finished your Hannibal book and it was excellent – a gripping read and a true page turner. Am looking forward to the next installment.

    @BigRomanGeneral: welcome to my site, and thanks for posting! Cheers for your good wishes too – I’m delighted that you enjoyed it. Afraid you’ll have a bit of a wait for part two – but two volumes of Spartacus in 2012 will hopefully keep you entertained!

    Hi Ben (parthianbow) we met at History in the Court, (I had on the Kilt) I have read all your published books and cannot get enough,
    I have just finnished Spartacus The Gladiator,(on my Kindle, hard copy back at home ordered twice) what can I say fantastic, Hannibal Brilliant, The Lost Leigion superb (oh god I sound like a sycophant) can you tell me why you have started 2 different series at the same time, and when is the second Hannibal book out.

    @plato: Hi, and thanks for posting on my site. Welcome! Cheers for buying so many of my books – I’m delighted that you like them so much.

    Why have I started two different series at the same time? Because I felt that Spartacus was a hot topic, and if I didn’t write about him, someone else would!

    The second Hannibal book is provisionally due out early next year…I hope you can wait that long!
