It’s official! I’ve committed to National Novel Writing Month 2019. Although for me it will be National Novella writing month!
Hi Everyone! Just wanted to share that I’ve spent this weekend upgrading the old Brass Legionnaire site. Now it’s looking brand new and contains all the novels of the Steam Empire Chronicles! So check it out to see the entire series (and not just my ramblings on here!)
Otherwise called…where would the Romans actually have settled in the New World?
As I discussed in
my previous post a long ago post, the Empire (in reality) could have funded some colonies in the new world if the right set of circumstances had existed. But where would they have settled? What does the new world look like in the world of the Steam Empire Chronicles?

Salve! In less than three days, we take the plunge into Steel Praetorian. Meanwhile, I’m still cracking away at Laurel Emperor, although (insert random excuse here) progress is not as good as hoped. Tonight’s writing featured General Marius Regillus, of the IV Syrian, in action. Don’t know who he is? Check out Antioch Burns, a novella based entirely on characters created by fans of the Steam Empire Chronicles. Available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or Smashwords for all other platforms.
Day 27 has come and gone, and with it, the arrival of a painful stomach bug. Argh! Anyways, we’ve crossed the 32k words mark. Obviously, I doubt I’ll make it to the 50k mark, but that’s never been what NaNoWriMo has been to me. It’s about getting as much done as possible! Plus, my goal of blogging every day has been (mostly!) successful. Today’s blog post is about Christianity in the Steam Empire Chronicles. Click beyond the line to see my thoughts!
Hi all! Today’s update focuses on the center of the action here in book #4, Steel Praetorian.

I thought that I’d put together this handy quick-reference guide to communication in the world of the Steam Empire Chronicles. So click read on to learn more about how Romans (and others) talk with each other! (Besides Latin, Yes, I know they already speak that language.
Happy Friday everyone!
I’m happy to announce that we’ve crossed the 44k words border and are headed east! (or north, upwards, anyways.)
