Dear all, I have been writing books for several years and I am happy to say that one of them – the novel “Cornelia” – is now also available in English as an e-book. The book was originally published in Bulgarian and had very good reviews which is why I decided to also have it published in English. I can promise you one thing - you will not be bored. 🙂 You can get it as an eBook on Amazon by clicking here. You can also learn more about the book and read the first chapters on my website www.tsenovbooks.com/en. You can also check out the first reviews on Amazon. Thank you all for your interest, for sharing the news and for giving the book a chance - I will be very glad to hear your feedback and to discuss the book. And, of course, if you like it, please share it with others! Stay safe, Emil ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- In 2012 treasure-hunters stumble upon an exceptional find near the town of Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria – the tomb of the Roman Empress Cornelia Supera, who remains hitherto almost unknown to history. What they find next to her remains will entangle in a complex knot the destinies of people from different countries and of different social status. Cornelia’s inheritance is desired by American millionaires, English lords and Bulgarian Mafia bosses. At the center of all events is Alex, a professor at a local university, whose big passion are ancient coins. While chasing the unique aureus struck in the name of the Empress, he will have to ask himself many difficult questions and find the answers.After eighteen centuries of oblivion, Cornelia finds a way to tell her story and to reveal an extraordinary woman – intelligent and with the ambition to change history. Together with her husband, the Emperor Aemilius Aemilianus, she will go through all stages of ascent and fall to sink into the mist of time and to again appear triumphantly from it. Cornelia’s story will shake our understanding of the history of Rome and its Balkan provinces in the 3rd century CE.
I have just published a book called "The Fall of the Republic" on the Catiline Conspiracy. While it is fictional, it adheres closely to Sallust's account and other historical sources. Here is a summary: In 63 B.C., Catiline—an angry, corrupt politician—conspired with foreign powers and criminal elements to overthrow the Roman Republic. Exploiting those who suffered from inequality, he sought to destroy the republic in the name of the people. In the end, he nearly achieved through violence what he could not attain by inciting the masses with lies. This true story of the near-destruction of a great republic contains poignant lessons for the ages. "The Fall of the Republic" is available on Amazon, in both paperback and Kindle editions.

I have decided to try my hand at a bit of fictional writing, and where better to start than with a time that I have had an interest in for years? I am 20 and have come up with a concept for a book based during the first invasions by Rome into Britain. The basic theme of my idea is a group of Speculatores that head into Britain on a recon mission. They manage their way into a relatively large settlement acting as traders and then things turn pair-shaped (obviously, what would a book be without things going wrong?) Does anyone know of any Roman, similarly themed books that I could perhaps have a look at? I think the idea is pretty original but am unsure, unfortunately I do not have as much knowledge of Roman Fiction as I would like (Or Roman anything!). Also, do you guys know of any interesting fiction/non-fiction that I could get hold of based in Roman Britain around the time of the invasion of Britain? Thanks in advance! (Also, feel free to let me know if you think it's a bad idea) Chris
