I don't know if this is the right place for this, but I noticed in the March edition of BBC History Magazine, your book Spartacus: The Gladiator is featured as the main HF novel for the month and praised soundly by Nick Rennison. Kudos to you! :D

I'm sure you're used to it, though. ;)

Woot! Congratulations, Ben!

@Rowan: I only just noticed your post - my apologies! Not been here much - mad busy all the time. Finding the time to write is now hard! Thanks so much for posting it, and I'm not still used to it! :o

@LoveHistory @DianeL: Thanks!

8 days until the book is launched in the USA!
