I've been lurking for the most part, but I thought I'd step out for a time-honored bit of horn tooting If you live in the UK, parts of the EU, SA or Aus, then beginning August 1st my novel Memnon should be available in bookstores.
From the back cover:
And quite a bit of that painstaking research was done right here, at Pothos (I thanked everyone here, collectively, in the credits).In the 4th century BC, the Mediterranean and Western Asia were riven by strife and slaughter. Out of the chaos strode a warrior who would becomeone of the great soldiers and statesmen of his time, who came to symbolize hope, but who is now all but lost to history.
His name was Memnon of Rhodes.
Through the deathbed recollections of a mysterious woman, Memnon’s life and deeds unfold with brilliant clarity. His is a story of triumph and tragedy, of ambition, betrayal and bloodshed. The story of a brave, passionate and principled warrior whose fate was sealed when he took a stand against that most renowned and feared of men: the ruthless, mercurial young conqueror called Alexander the Great.
Action-packed and painstakingly researched, Scott Oden’s new novel is historical fiction at its most engrossing and exciting.
