The blog is back - and a new book is on the way!

The blog has been having a pretty long holiday, some might say a mid-life crisis. Partly this is down to pressure of writing life, and partly to laziness. But it's back; there will be regular new posts. More importantly I have a new book out in October - Accursed Tower - the story of the crusaders' last stand in the Holy Land. A tale of giant catapults and the desperate defence of the city of Acre on the shores of Palestine - the Alamo of the crusades. If you've been watching Knightfall on Netflix, this is the true story!

Here are the the covers for the UK and US editions.

  1. So excited to get another wonderful book to read from Roger Crowley.

  2. I'm impressed that you're still following the blog! Thanks.

  3. Of course! Our trip to Malta was amazing by the way. We stayed in Senglea. I reread Empires of the Sea while there and the story really came alive.

  4. Great news! I've been waiting for a new book from you for a few years already.
