My Month-Long Blogging Experiment

How/Why I blogged for an entire month and some of what I learned.

Or – How to double your readership in 30 days.

Salve! As I sit here, basking in the computer-screen glow of Steel Praetorian finally being out and available for you all to read in a single day, I’m reflecting on the month long journey that brought us here. One of my personal promises to myself this month was two fold- write every day for Laurel Emperor, and blog every day for Modern Papyrus (also called this blog – ha!)

T-Minus Three Days

T-Minus Three Days to Steel Praetorian!

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.

Learn more about Christianity in the Steam Empire Chronicles


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!

Guest Post with SteamFest Host Phoebe Darqueling

Guest Post by Phoebe Darqueling of the Steamfest Gazette!

Hi everyone,pinmart-art
Last year, as part of a kickstarter, I helped Phoebe Darqueling as a backer for her Steamfest Gazette, a kind of traveling news magazine that visits different Steampunk Conventions. She’s an awesome person, and I’m so glad I get to share this interview with you as part of our blog swap for my Steel Praetorian blog tour! The rest of the interview is beyond the break!

Steel Praetorian Available for Pre-Order!

Steel Praetorian is available for Pre-Order! Grab your copy today! Release date is December 1st!

Good Morning Everyone!

Steel Praetorian is now available for Pre-Order on Amazon! I expect to have it up for pre-order on Barnes and Noble too by the end of the week. I am so excited to share this novel with you all. The official release date is December 1st!

You can also read more in an interview I’ve done on fellow writer Phoebe Darqueling’s blog – I highly encourage you to go there as well! It describes some of what’s going on in my head, as well as in this book and future books.

Steel Praetorian takes us deeper into the story and the political intrigue in Rome than ever before. Order shatters, resistance endures. Our loyalist friends face new challenges, while our traitorous friends uncover plot-twisting secrets. Cities will fall, Royal Houses will rise, and new technology will come to the forefront  – but for better or worse? (SPOILERS FROM EARLIER BOOKS IN THE BACK BLURB). See more for the blurb!
