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.
Last posting dates for Christmas to various countries has been released: to Australia 3rd December, Canada and the States is 9th December, Europe 13th and UK destinations 20th. Get your Christmas orders in now!
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.
So now’s the time to get that Christmas reading material. I’ve got a little more stock arriving in the next week or so but just in case of a rush of orders, don’t leave it too late!
I have completed about 20% of the new Casca story, The Austrian, set in 1683. The tale will be about the heroic defence of Vienna by the Austrians against a huge Turkish army that was intent on adding Austria to the lands of the Muslim Ottoman Empire.
There will be some gritty hand-to-hand combat, a massive battle where the Christian forces of Poland, Germany and Austria combine to fight the Turks outside the embattled city, and within Vienna itself, a smaller conflict as the Longini battle the Brotherhood.
Here’s the general kind of uniform/weaponry the story will contain…
I’ve got the initial stock and its all ready to buy. I’m busy bagging up the advance orders which are going out first. Sent the first 9 orders and the other advance orders I’m going to bag up today and post tomorrow. All fresh orders will be sent out after that.
I should have my stock within a week. I’m taking advance orders and have got a fair number already, so go ahead, don’t be shy!
