New book to be called “The Bloody Ripper”

I’ve been hard at work, writing the second standalone novel. This one is the second prequel that will introduce another main antagonist in the second Leopard King Saga book, to be released next summer. The title of this prequel is to be called “The Bloody Ripper.” It will take place in 1887-88 Victorian era London during the Jack The Ripper killing spree.

“The Bloody Ripper” will also have a heavy Steampunk theme with a very dangerous Locomotive called Blood and feature the same ruthless organization that was introduced in “Kill Zombies.”

I hope to have “The Bloody Ripper” out by late January. More details as they become available.

New prequel title is “Kill Zombies”

Universal Pen

As I mentioned in an earlier post, work is now underway for a prequel novel to be released in the coming months. The release date has not been confirmed, but the title of the book is “Kill Zombies” and will feature one of the antagonists in the Second Leopard King Novel to be released next summer.

While this book takes place in the same universe as THE LEOPARD VANGUARD it will have more of Dystopian feel with some horror mixed in. Judging by the title it’s safe to say some Zombies will be making an appearance.

More updates to follow.

Some interesting facts about the Roman Empire

Vexilloid_of_the_Roman_Empire_svg

Since my debut novel, THE LEOPARD VANGUARD, takes place during the time of the Roman Empire, I thought it would be fun to explore some interesting facts about the world’s most famous empire.

1) At its zenith the Roman Empire stretched from Britain to North Africa and parts of the Middle East.

2) The first four Emperors were called the Julio-Claudians (Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius) because they were from the same dynasty.

3)Romans were advanced in infrastructure, building useful aqueducts, roads and sewage systems that still stand today.

4)Latin was the official language spoken throughout the empire.

5)Freed slaves had the opportunity to become citizens.

6)There were two distinct classes in Roman culture: the Patricians were the elite class, while the Plebeians were the common, free citizens of Rome.

7)Since only the wealthy could afford meat on a regular basis, the staple diet consisted of bread and corn.

How worrying only hurts the worrier

Worry. Like doubt its an ugly five letter word that personfies negativity.

Why do people worry? Well, usually for those they love, people they think about. But even though their heart is in the right place its a self-defeating way to live.

Why? Glad you asked. I can answer that.

Worry is simply energy channeled into something negative. Now, why would you want to put yourself through that torture? Would you stick needles into your arms? No. Of course not. Why? Because it would not be prudent and it would hurt you. Worry is the same thing. Its fear manifested from our mind.

You can turn that around and make it work for you in a better way.

How? Keep reading amigo.

Do yourself a favor. Turn that worry into something positive. Something constructive. Go walk your dog. Take out the trash. Volunteer your time to help others. Turn any fear you may have into positive energy. Trust me it will come back in spades and make you feel great inside and out. Your life will change and you will begin ascending to another level.

Do I worry if my book will sell? Nope. Because I’m already happy knowing that I got published. Of course I’d like to make some money but I dont let worry take up residence in my mind. Besides, I’m too busy writing these articles for you guys. Because I LOVE doing it. Thats my payment. That’s the best payment there is. So why should I worry? That would affect the quality of my work.

Its habit really. Once you get on a roll with keeping yourself busy doing positive things and thinking fun thoughts, worrying will be a thing of the past.

So do yourself a favor. Kick worry in the ass.

You’ll be glad you did.

Your friend, and Blogging buddy,
