Join me September 4th at the Maryland Renaissance Festival for a book signing!


Daniel Ottalini at 2019’s Renaissance Festival

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!

You must purchase tickets in advance to attend the festival this year due to COVID restrictions. Please see their website for more information!

New Anthology Coming & A Summer Event Announcement!

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!

Book Signing – September 14th at Maryland Renaissance Festival!


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. https://scontent-iad3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/p200x200/38901799_1524838824329348_5684076907709071360_n.jpg?_nc_cat=102&_nc_oc=AQk9PbHBvnsmlxkR1KgLdSiydpkIEOdM0eDOB2UCxAAL_hnDbJRhlohnN2KXsLDBP9c&_nc_ht=scontent-iad3-1.xx&oh=8c64e90a1ea93e627b2b6c4b148d7884&oe=5D7DA12B

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!
