Win a signed copy of all three ‘Twilight of Empire’ novels!
My publisher, Head of Zeus, have very kindly offered to send a free signed hardback copy of each of the three novels published so far – War at the Edge of the World, Swords Around the Throne, and Battle for Rome, to a lucky winner who can correctly answer the questions on the form below.
The emperors of Rome are a very mixed bunch. While a few of them are still regarded as great rulers, the majority are better known today for their quirks and eccentricities, which in some cases approached dangerous insanity. Most of these stories come from the writings of Suetonius, whose book on the first twelve emperors of Rome remains very popular today.
My own novels, the ‘Twilight of Empire’ series, are set at a much later date, hundreds of years after the days of Augustus and Nero. This was the time of the emperor Constantine, one of the outstanding figures of the ancient world. But many other emperors of that later age are less well known, their lives and deeds recorded only in dubious semi-fictional histories and fragmentary accounts.
These three questions, then, relate to later Roman emperors. Answer them all, and you have a chance of winning three signed books. Three runners-up will each receive a signed copy of the third book, 'Battle for Rome'. The winner will be drawn from all correct entries in two weeks time.
