This week has been a busy week for me, even safe at home during this social distancing and Stay-At-Home orders. If you haven’t heard already, The Last Gladiator is now available on Pre-Order!
A clash of tradition versus invention drives Daniel Ottalini’s latest work – The Last Gladiator, a prequel novella in the Steam Empire Chronicles.
Lucia Rhodanus Fortem is an endangered species – one of the last graduates of the ludi, gladiator academies renowned throughout the Empire. When the Emperor orders a demonstration of his new mechanical toys – Mechagladiators – he knows just whom to fight. Fans of Gladiator and PacificRim alike will enjoy this prequel to the Steam Empire Chronicles – The Last Gladiator.
The Last Gladiator is due to be released May 2, 2020. Available on Kindle, Nook, and for all other e-readers through Smashwords!
I’m super pumped to share this with you all! Help out your small author pals (like me!) and pre order your copy today. Remember that my first novel – Brass Legionnaire – is still available FOR FREE on Smashwords!
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and A Happy New Year to all of you, my readers, friends, and family. May this new year be yours for the taking! Keep watching this space to see all the great things coming up this year! I’ve got big plans!

Salve! Happy Thanksgiving! From my family to yours, I truly hope you are spending this day with loved ones from near and far. If anyone hasn’t told you today that they are thankful for you, I am. You readers are half the reason I write (the other half, of course, is the sweet benefit of getting to tell my students I’m published, even if it is self-published.)
Hi Everyone! Happy 4th of July to everyone here in the United States (and incidentally, happy belated Canada day to those friends north of the border!) I hope your day is happy, safe, and relaxing. Remember to eat lots of hot dogs or hamburgers, talk with a lot of friends, and bring a blanket to enjoy the fireworks!
I know I’ve been AWOL a while, but never fear, more posts coming soon!
