You heard it right folks! About a year after it’s release in digital format, Laurel Emperor is coming to paperback! I know many of you have been clamoring for a paperback version, and not only will it be ready to go, but it’s release will be timed to coincide with my first book signing. In fact, if you’re able to attend my book signing, you’ll be some of the first people to access the paperback copy, and the first in person! Watch This Space!

New edition of Brass Legionnaire coming!

Tags


Hi all,

Cover

Where it all began

If you’ve read the title, than you know what this is about! Edition 2.0 of Brass Legionnaire is on the way! Don’t know what that is?! Check it out for only 99 cents on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Smashwords!

I wanted to share this because it’s a big step for me to go back and make some subtle tweaks and changes to Brass Legionnaire, improving the overall experience and adding small additional sentences, scenes, and such here and there. It’s not a major change, more a refinement. If you have the digital version of Brass Legionnaire, it should update automatically (within the next month).

I’ll also be excited to share the cover art for the Last Gladiator in the next few weeks.

Until then – Ciao!

New Novella in the works – The Last Gladiator

Tags

, , ,


Hi all,05-Escape-of-Corbus

I wanted to share the first page excerpt from my latest novella, the Last Gladiator. Focusing on a much smaller part of the world, it details the story of Master Ilyensio Horatio, master of the Ludus Magnus, one of the last training compounds for human gladiators in an era when the mechagladiators are about to dominate the colliseum. C&C always appreciated, let me know what you think! The goal for this is roughly 10-12,000 words, as I’d love to start getting some more novellas out this year and next with the eventual goal of creating that print anthology to accompany the Steam Empire Chronicle series.

Book Signing – September 14th at Maryland Renaissance Festival!

I’m excited to share big news! I’ve been able to secure my first ever book signing at Page After Page – the bookstore at the Maryland Renaissance festival – on Saturday September 14th, 2019. https://scontent-iad3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/p200x200/38901799_1524838824329348_5684076907709071360_n.jpg?_nc_cat=102&_nc_oc=AQk9PbHBvnsmlxkR1KgLdSiydpkIEOdM0eDOB2UCxAAL_hnDbJRhlohnN2KXsLDBP9c&_nc_ht=scontent-iad3-1.xx&oh=8c64e90a1ea93e627b2b6c4b148d7884&oe=5D7DA12B

After reaching out to the owners (Thanks to my friend Karla and fiancee Sabrina for making it happen!), I was fortunate to be offered the chance to sign some of my books! So if you’re in the Delmarva Area and want your book signed (or want to buy a book there and get it signed) I’ll be around from 11-5 (give or take however long it takes me to go get a giant turkey leg to nibble upon.).

I’ll also be excited to reveal the new paperback edition of Laurel Emperor, which will hopefully go on sale the same day! Talk about big news!
