The release date for Copper Centurion has been announced! Click to learn about prize winning opportunities!
Greetings to all my readers and fans!
I am extremely excited to announce that Copper Centurion will be released on May 1, 2013. This full-length novel has roughly 80,000 and will be on sale for $3.99 on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, the iStore, Kobo, and all other platforms through Smashwords. There will also be a print version available on the same day.
I am currently looking for the following…
- 7-10 people willing to read ARC copies of the novel.
- 10-15 people willing to host me for a blog tour in May.
- 2-3 people to be on my ‘street team’ – requesting the book at your local library, leaving the promotional posters at the local independent book store/library if possible, generally promoting it on twitter, goodreads, etc.
If you’d like to do any of these (or just want to know more) email me at daniel(dot)ottalini(at)gmail.com.
If you’re nice enough to help me make this book release a blast, you’ll get some awesomely exciting prizes.
- An electronic copy of both Copper Centurion and Brass Legionnaire (If you don’t already have the first one)
- A digital arts booklet featuring all the illustrations from the series (so far) plus never-before seen concept designs and rough sketches.
- Your name in a drawing to win a Nook/Kindle (Haven’t decided yet!)
This will be done on a first come, first serve basis, so sign up for your slot today!

I’ll be posting another update soon this weekend about some lessons I’ve learned from self-publishing
Brass Legionnaire is fully published. Check out amazon, barnes & noble, and smashwords for more details.
Only one day left on the free signed copy giveaway!
Happy Brass Legionnaire Day!
As of this moment, folks, the first novel of the Steam Empire Chronicles, Brass Legionnaire, is published in all formats and available for purchase!
I’ve made a new page at the top of the blog that features all of the easiest ways to purchase my novel. You can also use the links in this post to purchase them as well.
What about signed copies, you say? Well, I’ve got TWO give-aways running. Each one has three signed paperback copies of the novel available for you to win! You can even enter both. (If you win both, I reserve the right to only send you one signed copy!)
So either comment on this post of mine from earlier,
Or check out my Goodreads Giveaway and sign up there as well!
You have just ONE day left to enter and win for both contests!
Here are the links below to each book.
Brass Legionnaire (Print edition and Kindle Edition)
Smashwords (all other formats)
If you aren’t sure about purchasing yet, download the first chapter for free here, or you can sample the first 20% of the book (For more Roman-Steampunky goodness) for free also at the Smashwords link above!
Thanks again for all of my readers and fans out there. The journey started because of me, but it really finished because of your encouragement and positive attitudes. I love you all, and I’ll continue to blog about my adventures in life and self publishing. And yes, there will be more Brass Legionnaire novels to come. Copper Centurion (Due out sometime next Spring) will be even longer and more chock full of airship flying roman legionnaires.
Thanks again! Be sure to subscribe to the blog, Like me on Facebook or follow me on twitter! I keep it pretty interesting, and don’t spam you with a million for sale ads. Hurray!
Website giveaway update and Goodreads Giveaway introduction! Win a FREE signed copy of Brass Legionnaire. Goodreads Link – http://bit.ly/LD8kvz
It is with great happiness that I announce the publishing of the createspace paperback version of Brass Legionnaire. You can find it here before it has a permanent place on amazon.
Or, if you’d prefer to enter a giveaway for the book, I’m giving away three copies on the website here or if you are a member of Goodreads, you can click on the link below.
As you can see, the giveaways end soon! And, if you are a smart and crafty person, you can enter to win in both places! One just requires a comment (the website) and the other simply requires you to be a member of Goodreads! If you sign up for both, and somehow win both, I’ll send you just one copy and redraw for someone else (it’s only fair after all!)
I have the actual books here. They are ‘proof’ novels, but they are exactly the same as the real ones! Hope you are excited! Sign up soon, the contest ends in three days!
