Author of No Roads Lead to Rome

Post by viadelprat » Tue July 20th, 2010, 2:17 pm

Greetings from 123 AD!

I'm the author of "No Roads Lead to Rome."

Here's a quick blurb about the book:

It's 123 A.D. On the edge of the Roman Empire, a dead governor leaves behind the opportunity of a lifetime.

Mysteriously promoted, a senator’s son finds himself in an ancient world of trouble. Within days of taking office, Hispania’s taxpayers are in open revolt, the legionaries depart to build Hadrian's Wall, and the once-sleepy province is rocked by slave revolts, bread riots, and fad religions.

A quixotic saga steeped in humor and history, "No Roads Lead to Rome" chronicles the clumsy schemes of the new governor and his shadowy adviser, a superstitious centurion's struggle to save his faith in the faded ideals of the Republic, and a young rebel's reluctant vow to change the course of history. All are pitted against the Gods, the Emperor, and the decline and fall of damn near everything.

It's 123 A.D.-a time not unlike the present-and No Roads Lead to Rome

"No Roadsl" is routinely in the top 10, often in the top 5 of Amazon Kindle books sold in the Political/Humor, Business/Ethics, and Ancient History/Rome categories.

It's also available in print and stone tablets.

No time like the past to understand at the present.
