New Work of Awesome by Laura Josephsen

Now here's an intriguing read to add to my Must Read List. Give it a look!

Congratulations, Laura!  (^__^)


All Alphonse wants is a quiet summer at home before his final months at university. What he gets is a half-dead stranger on his doorstep and the task of delivering a package to the leader of his home country. Not long after he boards a train toward the capital, he's attacked by knights, elite soldiers of the neighboring king.

Alphonse is temporarily rescued by Mairwyn, a mechanic with a haunted past and a deep hatred of knights. Together, they attempt to carry out Alphonse's urgent errand, only to learn that if they fail, countless people will die.

And even if they succeed, they may not be able to prevent the war that lurks on the horizon.

You Gotta Read: Book Trailer Contest!

I entered the book trailer for The Last Legend in the You Gotta Read Reviews' Monthly Book Trailer Contest!  I'm so excited!!

Not only am I able to share a few of my characters with a wider audience, but I can also shamelessly pimp the original music which was created by the very, very talented Elana de Gleria Clark!!  (Seriously.  You want to make sure you have the sound on for this.  It's sooooo wonderful!)

I'm up against some great competition, so I hope you'll stop over and give them all a look.  Voting will open on February 21st!

One legend still survives in the wilds of 14th century Ireland. The last surviving member of the once proud and mighty Fianna is either a heroine or a murderess, and one young man who seeks the truth is destined to cross her path.

Savor the book trailer here at: You Gotta Read Reviews' February 2012 Book Trailer Contest

I'd love to hear what you think of it!  (^__^)

Today, I just logged onto Smashwords and checked the stats on my books.  Both Medusa and Compromises have been downloaded over 100 times each.


What a great gift that is!  People may not leave comments or feedback for me, but they've shown their love of my short stories in other ways: number of downloads and Facebook likes.

It's truly humbling.

Novels I hope people will enjoy as much as I've enjoyed writing them:

A Picture and a Thousand Words: February

I was planning to unleash torrents of angst for this month's Picture and a Thousand Words, but, actually... I think I'll go with snarky romance instead.   (^__~)b

You might recognize this story from about two weeks ago. It's the one I wrote for Auntie Tara's January writing prompt, but I've since added a couple of lines near the end which I feel round out the story better (but would have put me over the 750-word word count limit set in the original writing prompt) and some lovely cover art!


Everyone knows that relationships are one compromise after another... except for when they're not. Snark abounds in this short, romantic comedy.

More photos are in my Gallery on my website.

If you like, there's an ebook available now for you to download for free on Smashwords here: Compromises

Or if Fiction Press is more your speed: Compromises

Or, if you'd rather read (or re-read) it here on Blogger, you can do that, too!   (^__^)
