Day 12 – An Exercise in Nation Building

Alexandros has a new job, plus we’ve reached 18,000 words!

Salve! Happy Weekend!

Julius Brutus Caesar

Alexandros is back with a purpose in his first chapter in Laurel Emperor. I admit, I’ve been struggling a bit with his story line right now. Ever since the events in Steel Praetorian, and their resolution, it’s been tricky to try and shoehorn him into the events that are engulfing the rest of the nation, without making it seem forced. While he is a hero, the idea that he could just come in and replace someone already loyal to Constantine and his loyalist faction is very unlike him. So I’ve had to come up with an alternative idea for him to follow. More beyond the break.

Hope that makes sense, and any ideas for things for him to do would also be awesome and interesting! His snippet doesn’t reveal much about what’s going on! Word Count: 18,000

Everyone looked at her. Alexandros smiled. He saw much of his son, Leo, in this slip of a girl. No, she is no longer a girl, but a woman. A woman in charge of her future. Just like my Leo decided to take charge of his. He couldn’t help but remember the last letter from his son, three years ago now, telling his father he was resigning from the Airfleet. Alexandros’ response had been… unprofessional, to say the least. After that, silence. All his further inquiries had been returned.

Then of course, things had gotten out of hand in the real world.

As always, you should be checking out my Facebook page for more updates and fun snippets. Alexandros was a fan-favorite character from Brass Legionnaire that got his own novella – Roma Aeronautica. It’s only 99 cents! Check it out to learn more about his past!
