Hi everyone… Welcome to the event you’ve all been waiting for…. The Cover Reveal for Steel Praetorian!
Let me know what you all think! I’m extremely excited to share this with you!
If this cover art gets your blood pumping, and you want to know the backstory, read my first three novels. Remember, Iron Tribune is on sale all November long! Get it now while it’s only $3.99! All my books are available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or through Apple via Smashwords, and remember to like me on Facebook and follow me on Twitter for more frequent updates throughout NaNoWriMo2016!
What other things would you like me to blog about? Provide your input after the article!
For today’s post, I’m going to actually ask a question of my readers. What would be something you’d like to read an article about? As I’ve discussed before, my two most popular articles are those written about how to kill characters in novels. Gruesome (and highly entertaining) to write about – especially since I don’t take myself seriously in this regard. But what would be some articles you’d like to see? I can’t profess to being an expert at the craft of writing, but I do have experience and some thoughts/opinions about certain things.

20,000 words makes this a pretty lucky day I think!
Salve! Welcome to the 13th day of Blogging this November!
Today is really exciting, as I’ve hit the 20,000 word mark. This is a really big deal for me, as it means that almost 1/4 of Laurel Emperor’s first draft is finished! Also, I haven’t been the most focused today, so I also managed to write 500 words on another short story/fan fic idea I’ve been playing around with, which brings my total number of words written today to nearly 3,000! With all my major characters having gotten at least one chapter, I’m about to start working in several new characters that were introduced in the last book, and will begin to play a bigger role in some of the events in Rome.

A very brief update to continue my month of blogging.
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!
Corbus and a Train Trip, what could be more fun!
This one’s a bit rushed today as the wireless on my Amtrak train keeps going in and out. Goal is 8, 500 if I can get the wireless to stay alive long enough! But here goes, hope you enjoy.
Oh, did I mention this is Corbus’s first chapter? I do love writing about him for some reason…

The second part of my NaNoWriMo series, detailing my favorite parts of the program and how it can help you!
So I’ve recently written about NaNoWriMo and what it is, so now let me get to what I like about it. There’s a variety of things, but it really boils down to two parts. Accountability and community. Read more past the break!

Learn about NaNoWriMo inside! Part 1 of a 2-part series discussion NaNoWriMo and the writing process!
As many of you may know, this last year (time wise, not 2016 wise) I participated in both NaNoWriMo 2015 (November) and Camp NaNoWriMo2016 (July). I’ve compiled my thoughts on the experience so you can see if NaNoWriMo is right for you! This is the first post, detailing how the programs are similar and how they differ. The second one will focus on what I like and what I think could be improved
