Thank you for taking the time to look over my website. It's nothing fancy or professional, just something I've knocked up at home. As with most things in life, I'd originally intended to update it on a regular basis but life, as usual, keeps getting in the way.
Work on the sequel to Imperium Coda has slowed to a crawl. I could use writer's block as an excuse but the reality is sheer laziness on my part. Actually, to be fair, I'm not lazy but too busy doing other things. However, during this Corvid-19 outbreak, once the garden fences have been painted I will make a concerted effort to finish it. My son, John, has kindly designed the cover for me and I've placed it somewhere on this website, along with the other books. As you may gather from the artwork and title, much of it is set in ancient Rome, immediately after the death of Julius Caesar, and covers events in a five year period afterwards, written from the viewpoint of a young slave-boy called Quintus. The rest of the book is set now and brings back some of the preceding trilogy's favourite characters, not least Sir John Soames. As with much of Imperium: Revelation, the action hops backwards and forwards between the past and present day.
On a personal note, I'd like to thank all of my readers who took the time to leave a review, either on Amazon or Goodreads (and sometimes both) as they provide encouragement and a real incentive to keep going. As I am sure you can imagine, writing a book is a labour-intensive process and the financial rewards, unless you are one of the fortunate few, are slim and rarely recompense one for the effort involved. That said, it is (at least for me) a labour of love.Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions on the Imperium universe and if you are on Quora and want to see other writings of mine, just follow this link: Paul M Calvert.
