Let’s finish this novel, shall we?
Me slaying the beast known as Laurel Emperor.
Just a quick update! I’ve done a wonderful interview over on Hazel West’s blog about Steampunk. This is the last of my blog tour posts for Steel Praetorian. I hope you’ve enjoyed it! I’ve certainly had a blast ‘visiting’ all of my wonderful hosts blogs. Here’s a recap in case you missed it. All these sites are wonderful places to visit and explore, with some talented people running them! Plus, I owe all these people a huge thanks for hosting me during the busy month of November!
Salve readers of the Constantinople Courier!
Coming to you from an undisclosed location deep in the hillsides of Thrace, I’ve traveled to meet a very key person in our on-going efforts against the traitorous uncle of our beloved Primus Imperio Constantine Tiberius Appius. We’ve got a lovely one-on-one interview with up-and-coming Senator… Excuse me, Senatora Octavia Pelia. Thanks so much for agreeing to this quick chat.
With the holidays coming up, I know everyone is desperate to order Steel Praetorian for their friends, neighbors, and family. So, without further ado, here’s the link to the paperback version of the novel! Right now, it’s only available through Createspace, Amazon’s PoD Service, (EDIT NOW UPDATED – AVAILABLE ON AMAZON) but it should be available via Amazon proper within the week, and other print-book channels in the next few weeks.
Get your print copy today! Also, if you can contain your reading pleasure, and wait until it appears on Amazon, you can get a discounted version of the ebook if you order the print edition. So if that’s your thing, get double the Romanpunk Adventure at a reduced price!
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?
Salve! Today’s post is on the progress of Laurel Emperor, plus a snippet from a character we’ve seen and heard a lot about, and even dealt with, but never actually read about from his own point of view. Anyways, onward to progress!

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!)
December 1st, 2016 – A date that shall live in Steampunk awesomeness! Steel Praetorian is released for sale in ebook!
Book 4 of the Steam Empire Chronicles is now available for sale on Amazon, Smashwords, and Barnes & Noble. 249 pages long, and featuring characters from all the previous novels, plus a focus on a handful of new ones, this novel is action-packed, taking us from the scorching deserts of Mesopotamia to the blood-filled streets of Rome, and half the provinces in-between, it’s sure to impress and entertain!
Back Blurb: Emperor Hadrian Appius is dead, and the man responsible is his own brother. Unable to prevent the assassination in IRON TRIBUNE, Senatora Octavia Pelia and her allies flee Rome, leaving the smoldering capital behind them, determined to fight on against their rebellious countrymen. In the east, rightful heir-to-the-throne Constantine Appius faces disaster at every turn, his forces stretched thin against invading Mongols and rebel Romans alike. With the help of new friends and old, a desperate plan is formed. But will it be enough to save the Empire and the throne in STEEL PRAETORIAN?
Print Version should be available within a week. I’m excited to share that with you as well. Remember to like me on Facebook and follow me on Twitter for more frequent updates throughout December as I continue building the Romanpunk world of the Steam Empire Chronicles!
