“Of all the finest noble clans, house Becket is surely the most entertaining. It is said by the historian Ebersman that ‘every house has held the big stick at one time or another. The Beckets were the only ones to play fetch.’

Can’t stand what I viddie
Fear runs through the city
Nobs sneer without pity
But they fear my ditty.

They all fear my truth
Jus’ Cos I seem uncouth
They spit their vermouth
At the voice of the youth

“As this text is focussed upon the reign of King Augustus, we will spend little time on the Gray Goo Diaspora. However, it is important for the student to understand the context of the time, so that the King’s actions may be better understood.

So, I wrote about the marketing character arc for young women, and serious people talking about ridiculous situations.

Invito Rex Character Bio – Lord Dunem

John_Gielgud

Lord Dunem was based upon Sir John Gielgud

In my new book, “Invito Rex”, we meet the king’s chief of staff and political advisor, Lord Ashford Dunem. He is an officious, proper and cruel leader who is put in a very difficult position early in the story, and spends the rest of the book scrambling to keep the kingdom intact.

Ashford was born the son of an Austrian duke. As a youth, his ancestral land was contested between warring German and Croatian forces. Ashford rose to prominence by helping his father protect their title and lands. When German forces captured the Duke, Ashford earned his own title after convincing his people to accept German rule. He stopped widespread bloodshed, but his family and friends rejected him, forcing him out of the kingdom.

On Exposure

flasher2Recently, I’ve heard a lot of people talking about publishing. Not so much the difficulty of self-publishing, with the formatting, the editing, the plot, the characters, the marketing, or any of that. No, what I’ve seen the most is hand-wringing about just hitting that big red “publish” button. They say, “I just don’t know if I’m ready to expose myself to the whole world like that.”

The Invito Rex Kickstarter is here!

InvitoRexCoverIt is with great pleasure and pride that I announce the Kickstarter to pay for editing and cover art on my next book, Invito Rex. This is the story that I’ve been slowly serializing here on the blog.

If we can get over the base level of $5,000, I will be able to add short stories by the inestimable Nathan Lowell and the dynamic Matt Wallace.

In addition, we have some seriously cool rewards that include 3d-printed sculptures, collector cards, and board games based on the book.
