Today I’m going to recap my trip to the Maryland Renaissance Festival (in brief) and share some exciting news, as well as plans for some future blog posts!
As always, I loved visiting the Renaissance Festival. My hosts – the wonderful Vicki and Thomas at Page after Page – were gracious and supportive as always. Even in the rainy early October weather, we had great crowds and wonderful patrons coming by to purchase, get books signed, or just to chat! I had one of my best selling days so far, even with the poor weather, and I hope to be back next year.
While the blog has been a bit more inconsistent as of late, I’m hoping that with the school year settling down that I’ll be able to write some more. I have started planning my next novel – focusing on Corbus and his continuing story – as a stand alone (at this point) story arc. The goal is to get this story planned out by November so I can participate in NaNoWriMo for the (however many) year in a row. We’ll see where it goes!
Even though the winds may blow and the rain may fall, I’ll still be there to sign books for you all! Today’s book signing event at the Renaissance Festival in Crownville, MD, is on as scheduled. Wear your warm clothes and take a cloak, buy some hot mead or cider and come enjoy the day. All five of my novels, plus my anthology, will be on sale through Page after Page, the wonderful book store hosting me for today.

It’s been a busy time here in the Ottalini household, but I’m excited for things to settle down a bit with the school year starting, and even more pleased to announce my return to the Maryland Renaissance Festival this October 2nd, 2022! Thanks to the kind generosity of Page after Page, the preeminent (and only!) Bookstore at the festival, I’ll be signing copies of my novels and anthology, which you can pick up there in person!
Also feel free to chat with me about all the great Dungeons and Dragons modules I’ve been putting out this last year.
See me last year in my author get-up. I’ll hopefully have a few additional pieces of gear to wear this year! Make your reservations to visit the faire here, and come out and support me and my books (and have a cracking good time at one of the best events in the Mid Atlantic!)
If you can’t wait to get your copies, you can always order them in advance here!
Join me September 4th at the Maryland Renaissance Festival for a book signing!
You heard it right, I’ll be signing books at the Maryland Renaissance Festival all day on September 4th, 2021. Bring your book copy to get signed, or purchase your own through the local bookstore at the festival! Meet the author and chat about the world of the Steam Empire Chronicles, and hear more about my forthcoming anthology – Reflections of Brass!

A new print anthology of my virtual ebook novellas is coming soon!
You heard that right! In response to all your demands, I’ve decided to take all three of my amazing ebook novellas – Roma Aeronautica, Antioch Burns, and the Last Gladiator – and turn them into a printed anthology. While I don’t have any new material to include yet, I’ll sneak a few other tidbits into this anthology, such as a preview of the History of Rome and the New Caesarian Colonies. This anthology should be available this summer.
Speaking of Summer – Mark your calendars! I’ll be at the Maryland Renaissance Festival again this year (Tentatively, based on Maryland CoVID rules!). I’ll be at the Renaissance Festival to sign this newest anthology, plus all my other books, on Saturday, September 4th, 2021. I’ll be back with more information in the future!
Until then, remember to hit that subscribe button and follow this blog for more updates on this, my Dungeons and Dragons adventures & modules, and more!
BECAUSE: If you’re in the Delmarva Area and want your book signed (or want to buy a book there and get it signed) I’ll be around from 11-5. It’s a great time to get the new paperback edition of Laurel Emperor signed by me! Come and grab your copy (Or bring yours to get it signed). I may even have some treats for those awesome enough to visit me!
(Or just come to chat and hang out and ask me about the future of the series!)
I’m excited to share big news! I’ve been able to secure my first ever book signing at Page After Page – the bookstore at the Maryland Renaissance festival – on Saturday September 14th, 2019.
After reaching out to the owners (Thanks to my friend Karla and fiancee Sabrina for making it happen!), I was fortunate to be offered the chance to sign some of my books! So if you’re in the Delmarva Area and want your book signed (or want to buy a book there and get it signed) I’ll be around from 11-5 (give or take however long it takes me to go get a giant turkey leg to nibble upon.).
I’ll also be excited to reveal the new paperback edition of Laurel Emperor, which will hopefully go on sale the same day! Talk about big news!
