Salve! Our gallant heroes (or antiheroes, depending on your preference) are laying plans and enacting schemes, but this time around, they’re chasing their dreams.
Dreams of a unified Rome once again. (46k and counting!)
I briefly wanted to tell you about how I’ve been planning my last two novels. Ever since I started writing, I’ve been planning my novels out. Given the fact that I have to juggle story lines that evolve over several books, plus characters and technologies that don’t exist, one would except the need to have an outline or story map.
Thirty Nine Thousand Words and Counting! It’s a Fourth of July Miracle (Here in the United States of America). As a reminder ALL Steam Empire Chronicle novels are 25% off this July at Smashwords, and Roma Aeronautica is free! Tell your friends! Tell your family!
Here’s today’s snippet after the break.
To be more accountable, I’ve rejoined Camp NaNoWriMo 2017 for their summer writing project. Here’s the page count where you can check in with me. I’ll update this blog daily (A tough goal!) with how I’m doing, leaving you some tasty tidbits of my writing! End of Laurel Emperor, here I come!

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.

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.
