While Blood Debt is just around the corner, there are some other things going on.
Last night, I released the second American Praetorians Box Set – The Americas Duology. Some who have come to my work through Brannigan’s Blackhearts or Maelstrom Rising might or might not have read the American Praetorians series. Now the entire series (in ebook, at least) can be had for about half the price of the individual books.
Part of why I released this now is because of Lex Talionis. Many factors have changed or accelerated since I wrote that book in 2017, but some of it remains as timely as ever. It was, in many ways, intended to be a cautionary tale. A parable of what we were heading for if we kept letting outrage rule.
In many ways, I think I might not have gone quite deep enough with it. Some of the digging I’ve done since has exposed the faction I described as “Sulla” as more extensive and real than I’d imagined four years ago. Perhaps some elements will work themselves in to later series.
In other news, after receiving some good feedback on the questionnaire I put up a couple weeks ago, I have decided to finally pull the trigger on Triarii patches. I’d been hesitant, given how many Praetorian patches I still have. I’d gotten enough requests that I decided to look into it. Unlike the Praetorian patches, these will be embroidered, and hopefully up for sale just before Christmas. I do not currently have a solid ETA, though, given current shipping issues in the real world. The finalized patch image is the featured image on this post.
Still got a few days’ work left on Blood Debt, but it’s on schedule. Next in the chute will be Power Vacuum and The Unity Wars Book 4.
Back to the word mines.
