HANNIBAL\'S CHILDREN, THE SEVEN HILLS?????
#1
Salve all,

Anyone know (nudge nudge to John Maddox Roberts out there) when the next book in JMR's Hannibal's Children series is coming out? Been waiting a while and had heard that it'd gone to the publishers, but still no sign on the bookshelves.

Vale,
Caius the Farmer

Sorry, but after two books, Ace/Berkley seems uninterested in the third, THE WALLS OF CARTHAGE. Seems the sales figures on the first two weren't impressive enough. Maybe someday I'll sell it to a different publisher, but as I found out with my SPQR series, it is very difficult to get a publisher to pick up a series another publisher has dropped. That time it took around five years.

I have a question about "Hannibal's Children." Is the Spartan Agamedes, referred to in the service of Hannibal, real or ficticious, perhaps based on Sosylus? If real could you give me a reference?

A Spartan, being asked a question, answered "No." And when the questioner said, "You lie," the Spartan said, "You see, then, that it is stupid of you to ask questions to which you already know the answer!"

I hope the third book is picked up by a publisher soon... Such an enjoyable series to die so young!

Why not just publish it directly on Amazon, via Kindle store? They give you a better deal than most publishers.

That would certainly be an ideo. What do you think John?

I'm also hoping that you might publish the third book on Kindle. I see that the first two are now available as ebooks, so is there any chance that The Walls of Carthage might follow?
