It’s come to this, the end of the five book arc of the Steam Empire Chronicles. Laurel Emperor is done, and now awaits the tender (or not so tender) mercies of the beta readers.
All that’s left to do is get it to the editor’s this month (as soon as possible!) so that I can get the novel published! Once it gets to the editor, I’m anticipating running a kickstarter to once again add illustrations to the last novel. I wasn’t really happy with how I could only get two illustrations into Steel Praetorian, and I’d love to add some more to Laurel Emperor, considering it is the final novel of the series!
So what’s the estimated timeline? I’m hoping for an April/May Publishing date, right before the summer break, where everyone needs a good book (or five, I’ve got five novels now!) I’m anticipating trying to get the ebook version out first, followed by a print version later.
So what do you think? Would you be more inclined to get an ebook version over a print version if it came out first? Or would you be willing to wait for a print version? Let me know your thoughts!
