Yes, its now completed, the first draft, and is with the proofreaders. Artwork is being done, too, and I expect things to be ready to shift in a few weeks for publishing. For those of you who have got the books already, its the direct sequel to Casca 28: The Avenger.
I remember, speaking of Casca 28, having an argument at the time with my late publisher who was concerned about the cover, and I told him to keep it as the topless slave woman on the cover would help sell it. He wasn’t sure but I was confident. and to this day Casca 28 remains the only book in the series to have had boxes of it stolen by some eager thief….
The newly published version of Casca 3 is available from the website shop
Fed up with your old tattered copies of The Warlord, lost your copy and want a replacement but don’t want the “used – acceptable” replacement you find on certain websites, because the last copy was printed in 1986? well worry not because now there’s a new Casca 3 out, and I have the only supply.
Email me for a copy, as my shop is currently out of action.
Need some input from you good Casca readers. Some years ago I wrote a Casca story that linked the end of Casca 19 (The Samurai) with the beginning of Casca 22 (The Mongol). The story was never published at the time as I was informed readers wouldn’t like it as it had Casca fighting for the Muslims during the time of the Crusades (The story is entitled The Saracen). I would really like to release it – it covers the period 1185-1189 and the events that preceded the Third Crusade (although the story doesn’t cover it). The main battles here are the Battle of Hattin and the Siege of Jerusalem. Would you like it or not? I won’t be offended if you say no – I just need to know for sure whether or not to put it forward for release in 2019.
My stock has arrived so go the the website shop and get your copy of Casca’s latest adventure now!
The latest instalment in the long life of the Eternal Mercenary, Casca The Austrian, has been sent to the printers. It should be available in 4 weeks time maximum. Read about Casca’s involvement with the epic siege of Vienna in 1683 within its pages.
The royal mail are putting up postage price yet again. Around the 26th March prices will increase – I’m not yet sure by how much and on what, but as soon as I know i’ll publish it. The book costs are unchanged however, and these have remained at the same price since 2006.
So if you want to beat the price rise, get your book orders in now.
The cover is now finished, and here’s a picture for you all. Release is almost certainly April.

Always at this time of year I remind folks that because of the postal delays around December, its best to buy your Casca books now. I tend not to post orders to the States in December because of past issues.
