Salve Facebook Romans! (Err, I mean real Romans!) As I’m recovering from the release of Steel Praetorian, I’ve been thinking about some things in my writing world I’d like to change.
Today we have a great article written by yours truly about Facebook and Advertising. Facebook (and to a lesser extent, Twitter and other social media sites) seems to occupy more and more off our lives, and everyone seems to be on it all the time. But does this popularity translate into more sales?
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!
Today’s just a quick update to tell you that we’ve reached the 15,000 word mark! Hurray! Also, the illustrations for Steel Praetorian are nearing completion, and I expect the formatting and cover art to be done shortly as well. I’m thinking the release date will be around the 1st of December, giving me a break between the Thanksgiving holidays (When no one is paying attention) and the Christmas holidays (when no one is paying attention).
If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s not to try and compete with huge multinationals that can throw bazillions on advertising!
Anyways, enjoy the day!
Another blogger is on the lookout for good steampunk websites, blogs, writers, etc, as she is looking to compile a big list about them! Hop on over and check out her site For Whom the Gear Turns – I also recently backed her kickstarter to send her to several steampunk conventions (since I don’t have the time to go and it’s always fun to get another writer’s point of view on a convention before I commit the time or money to go to one!
(Full Disclosure – Iron Tribune has an ad up on her site (Part of the reward for the kickstarter pledge) – But then again you already own Iron Tribune, don’t you?)
