Thanks to all of you for writing, and I'm glad you're enjoying SIEGE! (Although I decline responsibility for any book-induced marital friction it may have caused.) I too have often wondered why there are not more historical fiction novels about the fall of Constantinople: I just tried to do this incredible event justice. And as to Chris's question about what's next: I'm currently working on a trilogy about the Crusades. EAGLE, the first in the trilogy, comes out next March. I hope to get back to the characters from SIEGE, and the amazing city itself, in the not-too-distant future. All the best, Jack

Hi Jack Have just ordered your new book from Goldsboro Books in the UK. I’m a fan of the area having visited after finishing Uni in the UK in the early 70’s. Actually arrived at the same time that Turkey invavded Cyprus (1974) - we three lads walked into a huge adventure!! Walked all over Istanbul, the market, the palaces, the Bridge etc etc - including driving to Troy, Epheses, Pamukale and finally, 3 weeks later, Marmaris and on to Rhodes via a 2 masted yatch ('cause the ferries had been cancelled). I have also thoroughly enjoyed Jason Goodwins crime based books based in Constantinople, although his are set in the 19th Century – dam good reads nevertheless. Will send you feedback when I’ve finished yours. Whats the next project – or will there be a series based on the time and period? All the best Chris Brisbane

Hi Jack i was excited when I saw mention on the Historical Novel Society's list of forthcoming books that there was a novel in the works about the Fall of Constantinople. It's always surprised me that no one has tackled this as an HF subject since Mika Waltari's "Dark Angel", published back in 1952. I'm enjoying your book very much, and will be keeping an eye out for the "Saladin" trilogy. All the best, Annis

Hi Jack - just went into Waterstones Trafalgar Square where there are multiple copies of Siege facing the door - right next to Alison Weir and other new releases. So prime marketing spot. I've bought a copy and have a couple of long train journeys coming up so will let you know my verdict soon. Jill

Congratulations Jack. You might actually get me to read something other than Drudge or Web Development books and blogs. It sounds like the book took you through a tremendous life journey. Enjoy your success!

Stella - I couldn't agree more! The siege of Constantinople definitely deserves to be seen on the big screen. And don't worry: there's still plenty of great Byzantine history out there for you to write about. I would love to read a novel about Justinian and Theodora.

Hey I was supposed to write this but you got there first! :) Finally this theme is written about, hope it will get popular enough to become a movie as well. Byzantine history and especially this event are far too exciting to be as ignored as they are...

Very exciting period in history. I know you will be a successful and perhaps compete with Dostoevsky my favorite writer.

Hello Jack, Congratulations on having your book published. Cate sent Susan the link and Susan forwarded it to me. As I told you 3 years ago when you first mentioned the book at Thanksgiving I would like to buy a copy. The link to buy is only for the UK though; is there a US link yet?
