The End of NaNoWriMo2015 – Where do we go from here?!
First of all, let me say thanks to all my supporters, backers, friends, and family for their unflagging support this month. You all were amazing. The blog broke my own personal records for the amount of traffic it got, and so many people learned about the world of Romanpunk. It truly made me so very happy!
FUN FACT: AT THIS TIME ALL MY NOVELS/NOVELLAS ARE IN THE TOP 250 on the Amazon Steampunk Charts – Yay for a Quintuple victory!

When last we left our intrepid Romans (and villains, but that’s another chapter), they were busy trying to undo the damage of the Mongol invasion (and other things). The first handful of Kickstarter packages go out tomorrow. The remainder should go out Saturday! The books have a new matte cover and they look and feel awesome!
PS Steel Praetorian’s been a bit paused, but we eeked over the 27,500 word line today. There simply aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done! But progress is progress. We’re more than 1/4 of the way done with Novel #4 and it’s only been 2 and a half weeks! That’s epic progress for me, Mr. Slow Writer.

Kickstarter News plus 27,000 words!
Here’s today’s snippet of chapter 9, although I still cannot believe that I’ve actually made it to nearly 27,000 words in just 16 days. It’s a record for me! If you’re doing NaNoWriMo2015, or if you’re just curious, join up and become my friend/Writing Buddy! You can check my progress and see how I’m doing in the most up-to-date way possible!
Kickstarter News: I’ve been packaging the orders, and these should get sent out this week. I know I promised that I’d be able to get them out today or yesterday, but the truth is that with my schedule the way it is now, I can barely get to the post office before it closes (doing it at lunch is a non-option for me). However, I foresee having time on Wednesday Afternoon, so I hope to have everything (meaning all 10 packages) to go out. This means that, as soon as they are sent out, that I will send out ALL the ebook files to every backer.
If you have changed your address, you must let me know IMMEDIATELY. Tuesday at noon is the deadline to send me a message here or on Kickstarter. I’ll post this message on Kickstarter as well.
Thanks! And remember, if you’re not a kickstarter backer you can still get access to the book through our pre-order!

Meet Quintus Garvus (again!) in Day 14 of NaNoWriMo2015
Well, okay, perhaps meet him again. This Speculatores (intelligence) officer is an agent for the Roman Government. He’s got his own chapter now, and will become a greater part of our series! But don’t worry, your favorite other characters will not only have a place, but will continue to see lots and lots of action. Guess what? Preorders of Iron Tribune broke through on Amazon yesterday into the top 300 rankings. Let’s send it to the top 100! You can also nab a copy through Smashwords and check out my other novels, Brass Legionnaire and Copper Centurion!

Day 13 – the writing continues after a day off of blogging.
So yes, I missed a day of blogging, but not writing! – it has been the most exhausting week with conferences and long days, plus we’re preparing our school for moving, so… yea. Very draining. However, I have some fun additional news. The two books that I’ve been working on as an Educational Consultant have arrived! Nothing says success like diversity in your operations! (Plus, being able to say ‘Educational Consultant’ on a teacher’s resume is pretty cool.)
Remember to Preorder Iron Tribune through Amazon and Smashwords and check out my other novels, Brass Legionnaire and Copper Centurion! Also check out my Facebook Iron Tribune Release Party!
I look forward to seeing all your questions in two Fridays! Only a short ways away!
Here’s a brief snippet from Steel Praetorian to wet your whistle.

A smattering of writing, plus a Kickstarter Update!
Day 11 has progressed…barely, but we moved some! I added another couple of hundred words. To be honest, I’m exhausted tonight. We had conferences at school today, which kept me on my feet and out late. So I’m not going to share any sneak peaks because there isn’t much to share. Other than a very special Mongol man with an obsession for technology that his companions think is hilarious.
Also, for my Kickstarter backers, I promised I’d keep you up to date as soon as the books came in. And guess what? They’re in! I had two large boxes waiting for me today. I opened them to discover goodies 🙂 If I can, I’ll find a way to share awesome pictures. Of boxes and books.
So a timeline update – Now that I’ve got the books in gear, I should have time to sign and load them up on Friday/Saturday. Meaning that, I HOPE to have them posted by Saturday if I have enough time Friday night.
I’ll post another update to the Kickstarter page once orders have been shipped 🙂
