Steel Praetorian Update and News

An update to Steel Praetorian! Excitement awaits inside!

Hi all,

Here’s today’s update on Steel Praetorian – This chapter has really been moving fast, and it leads perfectly into the next one! Can’t wait to see what you all think of this book this upcoming fall – Oh did I mention it will be out this fall? Yes! Steel Praetorian will be published this fall. I’m really looking forward to sharing the book with you. Also, remember that Antioch Burns is on sale this month on Smashwords. Ever wanted to get your friends into my novels? Tell your friends and family! Smashwords lets you purchase any format of the books, so it works on all devices!


Right now, I’m leaning towards not running a Kickstarter for this book. As I’ve explained in the past, to me, a Kickstarter is to help get something running, and obviously I’ve been writing books for a while now. Without doing the interior illustrations, I save a significant amount of money, and can spend that on advertising and other parts. If, in the future, I am able to scrap more funding together, I’d definitely look at adding illustrations to Steel Praetorian. But to me, it’s either an all or nothing type thing, and I’m still very hesitant to run (yet) another kickstarter for illustrations. Let me know in the comments below your thoughts!

Anyways, here’s a snippet from today’s writing! (As always, there are errors and mistakes all over the place, but it’s still a work in progress.) We’ve reached 47,000 words too!

Here’s the link to my Camp NaNoWriMo Page if you’re interested in seeing how I’m doing!

“How do you know that’s what he’ll do?” Asked one of the air fleet captains. “Wouldn’t it make more sense to try and strike at us while our forces are spread out?”

“Normally it would.” The Dux stepped in here at this point. Legate General Regillus was smart, but had little military historical experience to support his claim. “But in this case, Minnicus must clear and secure his rear territory. He believes that we will remain stationary, content to trade time and space as we gather every legion possible. It is likely that he has anywhere between three to five more legions on the way to him as we speak.” A squabble of voice came from around the table as the officers’ voices rose in alarm.
