I’ve certainly had a blast ‘visiting’ all of my wonderful hosts blogs. Here’s a recap in case you missed it. All these sites are wonderful places to visit and explore, with some talented people running them! Plus, I owe all these people a huge thanks for hosting me during the busy month of November!

Steel Praetorian available in Paperback!
With the holidays coming up, I know everyone is desperate to order Steel Praetorian for their friends, neighbors, and family. So, without further ado, here’s the link to the paperback version of the novel! Right now, it’s only available through Createspace, Amazon’s PoD Service, (EDIT NOW UPDATED – AVAILABLE ON AMAZON) but it should be available via Amazon proper within the week, and other print-book channels in the next few weeks.
Get your print copy today! Also, if you can contain your reading pleasure, and wait until it appears on Amazon, you can get a discounted version of the ebook if you order the print edition. So if that’s your thing, get double the Romanpunk Adventure at a reduced price!

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!)

T-Minus Three Days to Steel Praetorian!
Salve! In less than three days, we take the plunge into Steel Praetorian. Meanwhile, I’m still cracking away at Laurel Emperor, although (insert random excuse here) progress is not as good as hoped. Tonight’s writing featured General Marius Regillus, of the IV Syrian, in action. Don’t know who he is? Check out Antioch Burns, a novella based entirely on characters created by fans of the Steam Empire Chronicles. Available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or Smashwords for all other platforms.

Good Morning Everyone!
Steel Praetorian is now available for Pre-Order on Amazon! I expect to have it up for pre-order on Barnes and Noble too by the end of the week. I am so excited to share this novel with you all. The official release date is December 1st!
You can also read more in an interview I’ve done on fellow writer Phoebe Darqueling’s blog – I highly encourage you to go there as well! It describes some of what’s going on in my head, as well as in this book and future books.
Steel Praetorian takes us deeper into the story and the political intrigue in Rome than ever before. Order shatters, resistance endures. Our loyalist friends face new challenges, while our traitorous friends uncover plot-twisting secrets. Cities will fall, Royal Houses will rise, and new technology will come to the forefront – but for better or worse? (SPOILERS FROM EARLIER BOOKS IN THE BACK BLURB). See more for the blurb!
