I am pleased to announce on 9th September 2009 I sold the 1000th copy of my book LOST TOMB OF THE KNIGHTS TEMPLAR.
In publishing circles this is just a drop in the ocean of book sales, but to me it is a great achievement. When I first published the book I thought I may sell 100 copies, perhaps 200, but I never imagined I would sell 1000 and counting. So I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has bought a copy of my book. Thank you very much.
If you have enjoyed reading my book please tell your friends, workmates or anyone you meet walking out on the street, on buses or trains. If you have ever purchased a book from Amazon, it doesn't have to be my book, you can also post a review of my book HERE. Every little helps and is gratefully appreciated.
The person who bought the 1000 copy was David B from West Sussex, UK, who kindly sent me a photograph of him holding the 1000th copy of my book. Thank you David.

Praise for Lost Tomb of the Knights Templar by Ben Hammott
"Hello Ben. I just finished reading your book in January. I am very impressed with it and it was probably my favorite read of 2008! I have been following Bruce and his documentary for about a year and a half now, and was very excited to hear that you were writing a book on the bloodline topic, and your findings in Rennes le Chateau. I think the photos included in your book made me understand the findings in more detail, good job. It was very well written, and I thouroughly enjoyed your sense of humor thoughout the book, regardless of the seriousness of the topic. It truly is an incredible journey you have been on, and I hope it is not the end for you. Congratulations on your findings, on your book, and everything else, and best wishes for you and your discovery in the future." (

As a reader of the RLC mystery for several years, i not affraid to say, that your discoveries gives the mystery a whole new dimension. A journey filled with excitement!" (HD - Denmark)

"Loved the book. Very interesting and very easy to read. The 100's of photo really brought the story alive. I bought your book, Lost Tomb of the Knights Templar, after watching the Bloodline movie and boy am I glad I did. It fills in a lot of stuff not included or just hinted at by the movie. The clue solving was amazing. Great stuff Ben. You get 10/10 from me. (ST UK)
