Just finished “Claudius Rex” and enjoyed it immensely — well deserving for insertion into the “best” anthologies for which it has been chosen. Have you considered getting an agent to shop the story as the basis for a movie screenplay?
Also looking forward to the novel sequel. Anything further on that timeline?
Hi Ron, I’m glad you liked Claudius Rex! I’ve been talking to agents off and on, shopping around the sequel and similar projects. Novellas are hard to sell sequels for, I’m finding, but there are a few avenues open. I’m hoping to have news this year.
Thanks for stopping by!
More Claudius Rex please!
