Hello Sue, and thank you for inviting me to revisit your blog!
I’m absolutely delighted that I have something brand new to share with your readers. Agricola’s Bane, the 4th book in my highly acclaimed Celtic Fervour Series was published yesterday with Ocelot Press. Both ebook and paperback are now available to buy on Amazon. The ebook launched yesterday but there will be a local (to me) paperback launch event on the 22nd November at the Garioch Heritage Centre, Inverurie, Aberdeenshire. At this event, I’ll be giving a PowerPoint presentation on Roman Aberdeenshire before the Book Signing session.
Book 4 continues the tales of my Celtic Garrigill warrior clan – this time featuring Enya, one of the younger Garrigill clan members. The date at the outset of Agricola’s Bane is mid-November AD 84 and the location is
Caledon territory (Aberdeenshire/ Scotland). The
Late Iron Age tribal warriors who have survived a very recent battle against
the Ancient Roman armies take refuge in the hills. General Agricola continues
to march northwards in his quest to claim even more territory for the Roman
Empire, yet discovers he is thwarted by more than the local warriors who
continue to be very adept at guerrilla warfare. Going near the Roman legions
means risking a stabbing death under a Roman gladius, but Enya of Garrigill and her companions must also evade
the traitorous Vacomagi who have signed up for Roman coin!
Here is a little bit more from the blurb….
AD 84 Northern Roman Britain
Nith of Tarras aids Enya of Garrigill in the search for her kin, missing after the disastrous battle at Beinn na Ciche fought between the
General Gnaeus Iulius Agricola – Commander of the Britannic Legions and Governor of Britannia – is determined to claim more barbarian territory for the Roman Empire, indeed plans to invade the whole island, but finds not all decisions are his to make. It increasingly seems that the goddess, Fortuna, does not favour him.
The adventures of the Garrigill clan continue...
