This afternoon I finished my edit on the very final chapter in the final book of the trilogy of late Roman novels I have been working on with my partner in crime Gordon Doherty for the past six and a half years. Though the books have yet to be released, I think they are among the best thing either of us has ever done.

I am proud and pleased as punch to have achieved this with Gordon, and at the same time immensely saddened that it means the end of the project and our current collusion. Which is not to say that there will not be other projects. What I will say is that Gordon is the most incredibly talented author, most affable bloke ever, and an amazing fellow to work with and I've enjoyed every minute.

And while we finish up all the minutiae of the series with historical notes etc, I will urge you if you've not read Gordon's books to do so as soon as possible, and then you'll be prepared for the absolutely storming trilogy we have crafted for you.

Vale, old project. And off to new things...

An excellent first full day back at work. I have dealt with Templars and killed an emperor. Pretty good for one day... :-)

So what books can you expect in 2019, I hear you ask?

Well, it begins with Praetorian IV any time now. Then Damned Emperors II: Commodus in April. Then in May, Templar 3: City of God. Summer will see Marius' Mules XII, and late in the year Praetorian V. Lookin' good, guys... lookin' good.

Problem with writing about places you love is that it really doesn't help with the wanderlust...
