Prepped for launch!

You’ll notice that I’ve added a new work to my AO3 account. This is the preliminary setup and place holder for the draft chapters of “Games of Rome” on AO3. I’ll also prepare my pages on LiveJournal and FictionPress. On the Ides of November, the games begin. 🙂

There’s this mock dinner party scene where Gaius, Max and Bryaxis… Yup, I know what you’re thinking. And there’ll…

Roman energy drinks and spare tires?

Have to love this one. Now my brain is buzzing about how I might include this in the story. 🙂 http://www.npr.org/blogs/thesalt/2014/10/27/357903336/gladiator-gatorade-ancient-athletes-also-had-a-recovery-drink?utm_source=facebook.com&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=npr&utm_term=nprnews&utm_content=2051
