Greetings, lovely people!
After the success of the last two years' campaigns for the Forgotten Legion short story The March, I was confident that you would be interested in another one.
I widened my poll from Facebook to Twitter and my newsletter. Although Hanno, Quintus and Aurelia did really well, Tullus, the grizzled centurion from the Eagles books was a clear winner for the second time! I haven't yet decided when I will set it, but it will probably be during the Pannonian War (AD 6-9). At least 10,000 words in length, there will be comradeship, battles, bloodshed and humour - I can already picture some of them! Some of you will feature in the story as well - see the reward packages for details.
NOTE: If the demand is there, I may be able to offer this short story in paper format, but I reserve the right not to do so. As it stands, this short story will ONLY be available in digital format. If you do not use an e-reader, or only want this story in paper format, please DO NOT pledge. Thank you.

Risks and challenges
I'll do my best to have this written by the end of February 2020, but I hope to have it done sooner. I reserve the right to delay that release, however, depending on how well the project is going.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
