I should have posted about this before, but I’m appearing at the Historical Novel Society’s conference, which is taking place in Manchester, this coming Sunday, the 17th. Please come along if you can! Have a look at the details here.
The theme will be distinctly martial with me, Harry Sidebottom, Douglas Jackson and Robert Low (he of the excellent Viking Oathsworn quartet) taking part. It’s been linked in with the Manchester Lit Fest – and Bernard Cornwell is appearing the night before. I’d love to go, but I’m heading out for dinner with all of the above. No swords, axes or knives are allowed!
On another note, my editor has today given me the thumbs up for Soldier of Carthage. A big phew! It needs a few tweaks, but nothing more than a few hours work. Now for a little break before I get stuck in to the next one, Legionary.
