Interview with a Senator

Read the interview with Senatora Octavia Pelia!

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.

My Month-Long Blogging Experiment

How/Why I blogged for an entire month and some of what I learned.

Or – How to double your readership in 30 days.

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!)

Steel Praetorian is Out!

Steel Praetorian is now out and available for purchase in ebook format!

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!
