The Golden Dice -sequel to The Wedding Shroud - Coming soon!

Over the last couple of years, many of you have been kind enough to express an interest as to when  the sequel to The Wedding Shroud will be available. I'm now happy to announce that I plan to release The Golden Dice in July. It's been a roller coaster for me during this time as the contract with my Australian publisher fell through and I faced the prospect of being unable to publish this second book in the trilogy Tales of Ancient Rome. Luckily, the new world of independent publishing came to my rescue. As a result I've been able to reach readers all over the world instead of just in the Antipodes. I'm in the final stages of proofreading and formatting now.

Here's the blurb...

In The Golden Dice, sequel to The Wedding Shroud, three women follow very different paths to survive a ten year siege between Rome and the Etruscan city of Veii: 

Caecilia forsakes Rome to return to her Etruscan husband, Vel Mastarna, exposing herself to the enmity of his people and the hatred of the Romans who consider her a traitoress…

Semni, a reckless Etruscan girl, becomes a servant in the House of Mastarna, embroiling herself in schemes that threaten Caecilia's children and her own chance for romance…

Pinna, a tomb whore, uses blackmail to escape her grim life and gain the attention of Rome's greatest general, choosing between her love for him and her loyalty to another…

In this second volume of the Tales of Ancient Rome trilogy, the lives of women in war are explored together with the sexuality, religion, and politics of Roman and Etruscan cultures, two great civilizations of ancient history.
