A Wonderful Complement

It’s every author’s dream to see their book turned into a film. Following the success of Blood of Kings I have had a wonderful complement paid to me by a film company in Russia. They are planning a film about a famous Russian historical character, and having read BOK they decided they would like me to write the novel that the film will be based on.

I don’t know if anything is going to come of this yet. They were kind enough to fly out to my remote Portuguese mountain top retreat earlier this month, and we had two fascinating days discussing the project. I’d never met a film producer before – it was an exciting experience! But the story would be a big change from my original plans, and I’ve never considered writing about anything other than the ancient world. So we’ll have to wait and see how things pan out…..Whether it happens or not, it was great to be asked!
UPDATE 1 March Still not sure what’s happening – plus I managed to land myself in hospital when I tripped chopping firewood – but out now….Will update soon I hope…
