A WRITER who specialises in historical fiction visited a WGC bookshop today to sign copies of his newest epic novel.

Conn Iggulden, a best-selling author, was in Maher The Bookseller, in the Howard Centre between 1pm and 2pm autographing Lords of the Bow.

While he was there, the WHT caught up with him to see how he was getting on.

He said: "I've been across the country visiting many different places and I must say WGC is one of the nicest places I have been to.

"It's a great pleasure to be here today to meet the fans of the book and previous stories I have written, I am a reader of thousands of books myself and it is a brilliant feeling when someone says how much they enjoyed a book you wrote.

"It's absolutely phenomenal."

The book itself, which is part of the Conqueror series, is selling particularly well, the ex-teacher added.

"I am really pleased with how things going.

"It's a great story, all about Genghis Khan who probably has the greatest 'rags to richest' tale ever; I just hope I have done it justice, if I have people should enjoy it, I hope they do, because it's something really interesting."

The father-of-four is currently working on his next follow up in the Conqueror series, which should be coming out sometime this year and is another Genghis book, which takes the Mongol armies into Russia, Korea, Afghanistan, Iran and China.
