An 'Extra' piece of Roma Nova...

Delighted to announce that the ebook of ROMA NOVA EXTRA is now available on Amazon, B&N Nook and Kobo.

The official publication date is 19 October 2018 when the paperback edition will be available from online stores (Amazon, The Book Depository, etc.) and through bookshops.

Eight stories – four historical and four present day and a little beyond – but they’re all about the people of Roma Nova…

Apulius, a young military tribune posted to a backwater in 370 AD for having the wrong religion, encounters the fiery Julia.

What does his lonely descendant, Silvia, labouring in the 1980s to rebuild her country, make of the Italian architect supervising the reconstruction?

Can imperial councillor Galla stop the Norman invasion of England in 1066?

And will Allegra, her tough 21st century Praetorian descendant fighting her emotions, find her way to her own happy ending?

The Girl from the Market AD 370
Victory Speaks AD 395
A Roman Intervenes 1066
Silvia’s story  1983
Games  (Set just after the end of INCEPTIO)
Conrad and Carina’s Roman Holiday  (Set between PERFIDITAS and SUCCESSIO)
Saturnalia surprise  (Set after a few years after SUCCESSIO)
Allegra and Macrinus  (Set several years after SUCCESSIO)

Some are love stories, some are lessons learned, some resolve tensions and unrealistic visions, some are plain adventures, but above all, they are stories of people in dilemmas and conflict, and their courage and effort to resolve them. Oh, and there are a few surprises…

Readers of INCEPTIO, PERFIDITAS, SUCCESSIO, AURELIA, INSURRECTIO, RETALIO and CARINA will be familiar with many of the characters in these short stories. But if you are new to Roma Nova, enjoy these eight ‘behind the scenes’ glimpses into Roma Nova for themselves and perhaps feel curious enough afterwards to find out more about the Roma Novans in the longer novels…
