Update To Brass Legionnaire’s Page

Tags

, , , , ,


Hi everyone,

I’ve updated the information on Brass Legionnaire’s book page above. I’m planning on having a friend do some general clean up work on the book, which will be significantly revised in the next month. Backers of the kickstarter who pledge $25 or more or add some money for additional print copies of Brass Legionnaire will get the updated version. Already have a copy? No worries! I’m looking at cleaning up various problems and smoothing the story out, so your old version will not be ‘obsolete!’ and if I choose to add an additional chapter, I’ll make it available for free here on the website, as that’s fair for everyone. (Although I want you to buy my books, I don’t want you to buy a new copy of Brass Legionnaire just for another chapter, that’s silly!)

In essence, I’ve added character plots for Julius, Constantine and Corbus. See the overall design of their story plots in BL, and learn a bit more about the characters!

Also, there’s only EIGHT DAYS LEFT IN THE KICKSTARTER! Help us reach $1250 and everyone will get BOTH of my novellas for free! Woo! We’re only about $230 away, so every dollar helps!

9 Days… And Counting!

Just Nine Days left people!

There’s just 9 days of Kickstarter joy left for Iron Tribune! We’ve reached our 1st stretch goal – $1000! If we can get to the second set at $1250, everyone will have gotten both copies of my novellas, plus their other rewards, for free!

As a reminder, I’ve also listened to the fans and will now offer additional discounted print copies of all my novels as Add-Ons. So you can get more wonderful Roman-Punky goodness for your enjoyment!

(On another note, happy birthday to my Brother (Who happens to be on the other side of the world right now, so it’s officially his birthday!) For those of you who don’t know, he does the voices for the Brass Legionnaire Audiobook, which he swears to me will be completed at some point in the near future (or edited and finished, or whatever) But when it does, I know it will be awesome!

Salve,

Here is Part 6 of The Border for your enjoyment – the battle lines clash and our allies find themselves in a tough spot! If you like what you’ve read, please look into supporting my Kickstarter for Iron Tribune’s illustrations! You’ll be helping make my 3rd novel even better than it already is! Here’s the link for those looking to support me. $10 gets you the novel and our 1st stretch goal, which is a free copy of Antioch Burns!

Part 6

Screaming his rage and frustration, Odiscus battered his sword down onto the Quadi shieldwall. Once, twice, and the shield cracked, falling apart in his opponent’s hand. Speartips flashed past him, the murderous metal wet with blood and rain. Odiscus slammed his sword down one final time, burying it in his enemy’s shoulder. The man cried out, spinning away from him. Bastard! He thought as his sword tumbled away from him, still embedded in the barbarian’s shoulder.

Kickstarter in Progress + Fun Facts about Iron Tribune

Salve!

The kickstarter for Iron Tribune is in full progress now. With 22 days to go, we’re at 4739 out of $750 needed! As usual in most kickstarter campaigns, the funding amount jumps at the beginning and the end, but stays relatively flat in the middle. We’ve been on a slow, but steady, increase over the first few days, and if you haven’t joined in yet, now is a great time!

Almost to our goal!

Wow! It’s the end of day 1 of my kickstarter and we’re barely $100 away from my goal of $750! This is so exciting! Thanks to all my supporters, and if you haven’t thought of joining the effort, $10 gets you the novel, plus any digital only rewards! Click to check out the kickstarter here.

Iron Tribute Option 2

And since every dollar raised goes to adding illustrations, you get the benefit of the ‘stretch’ goals regardless of pledge level. The cost of an illustration for the book is roughly $100-125 per illustration depending on various things, so the money will net me around 5-6 illustrations and maps with support for the formatting. Otherwise, it looks like we’ll reach our goal comfortably this go around!

In other news, they’ll be a new post for The Border on Monday for those interested :-) What do people think about the series so far? I’ve been tempted to turn it into a novella, but I’d love to hear some criteria on it beforehand. You can read part 1 here.

Book 3 Approaches! Iron Tribune Kickstarter Launch this Friday

Salve! I bring glorious news in the name of the Emperor!

Iron Tribune’s Kickstarter stands prepared! The rewards have been created and our artificers are hard at work! You’ll see the first look at the cover for Iron Tribune. It’s my favorite one so far!

Now down for the nitty-gritty details. Our goal, fellow champions of the Empire, is $750 to allay the cost of illustrations and formatting. Any additional money shall go to adding yet more glorious illustrations and perhaps even an exciting poster! Reward levels shall be at $1, $10, $25, $30, $50, and $125. I’ve had to add on shipping for the books, but I believe it’s reasonable (Having learned that lesson the hard way last time.)

Current shipping charges are $15 for the rest of the world, and $3 for the US, which will increase a bit if you get all the print books (heavier!)

Are you ready!?
