NaNoWriMo2015 – The End

The End of NaNoWriMo2015 – Where do we go from here?!

Hi everyone,

First of all, let me say thanks to all my supporters, backers, friends, and family for their unflagging support this month. You all were amazing. The blog broke my own personal records for the amount of traffic it got, and so many people learned about the world of Romanpunk. It truly made me so very happy!

FUN FACT: AT THIS TIME ALL MY NOVELS/NOVELLAS ARE IN THE TOP 250 on the Amazon Steampunk Charts – Yay for a Quintuple victory!

NaNoWriMo2015 has been awesome for me. I didn’t get to 50,000 words, but that’s okay. It’s about the progress. The end of my novel is around 85,000 words, so 50,000 would put me more than halfway. I’m so grateful for the push from authors all over the world and from the organization itself. Will I participate next year? Absolutely. And I’ll make sure to have an entire novella planned out ahead of time this go around!

So what comes next?

Well, obviously, I need to finish Steel Praetorian! My newest goal is to get 7,000 words per week. That’s only about 1000 per day, which is doable. Obviously with the holidays approaching I know that it is going to be difficult. But I think I can do it!

Gather funds for some Cover Art and formatting, plus editing. The good news is that Iron Tribune is doing really well for me, and is spurring many sales this holiday season! Remember, it makes a great gift! Plus, don’t forget my novellas. Small, quick, and cheap, they’re great lazy weekend reads (or recovering from Food Coma reads, etc).

Here’s the links for all my novels below! These are all Amazon links, but ALL the books are also available through Barnes and Noble and Smashwords as well.

  1. Brass Legionnaire
  2. Copper Centurion
  3. Iron Tribune

and the Novellas

  1. Roma Aeronautica (A steal at only 99 cents!)
  2. Antioch Burns (A great companion read to Iron Tribune!)
