TheLastKing is #Free on #AmazonKindle for the next few days.

To celebrate the coming release of The Last Seven, the first book in the series is free on Amazon Kindle for the next few days.

If you’ve not yet discovered Coelwulf, and his warriors, then here’s the blurb;

They sent three hundred warriors to kill one man. It wasn’t enough.

Mercia lies broken but not beaten, her alliance with Wessex in tatters. Coelwulf, a fierce and bloody warrior, hears whispers that Mercia has been betrayed from his home in the west. He fears no man, especially not the Vikings sent to hunt him down.

To discover the truth of the rumours he hears, Coelwulf must travel to the heart of Mercia, and what he finds there will determine the fate of Mercia, as well as his own.

The Last King is available in 2 versions – the original, which is stuffed with foul language, and the ‘cleaner’ version which is missing some of the stronger language, although there’s still many examples of bugger and arsehole, as well as a few others. The battle gore hasn’t been toned down in the cleaner version.

This week’s Amazon Kindle (US/UK) special offer is Swein: The Danish King – a side story to the Earls of Mercia Series

Before his encounter with Ealdorman Leofwine on his fateful trip to Shetland, King Swein first had to wrestle Denmark from an overmighty father and make his own name as a warrior of great renown.

This side story to the Earls of Mercia series tells of the early years of King Swein’s reign, his first raid on England, his unfortunate encounter with Ealdorman Leofwine and his desire to once and for all kill Olaf of Norway, culminating in the mighty sea battle of Svolder in 999.

I hope you enjoy – this can be read as a standalone if you’ve not yet read the rest of the books in the series as the main character is one of the minor characters in the series.

Swein is also available to read with a Kindle Unlimited Subscription.

Pagan Warrior is now available in audio (The Seventh Century) (Tales of Mercia)

I’m really pleased to be able to share that Pagan Warrior, book 1 in the Gods and Kings Trilogy, is now available in audio.

If you’ve listened to The Custard Corpses, then yes, it’s the same narrator, Matt Coles, but wow, have I tested him with this one. I am genuinely amazed by the skill in which he’s brought the motley collection of warring kings to life from seventh century Britain. And, even if you’re read the book, I would recommend listening to the story as well. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed listening to the narration.

Here’s the link to the book books2read.com/PaganWarrior

I don’t think the audio is yet live on iTunes, but it will be soon.
