War (The Four Horsemen #2) is Out Now!

War (The Four Horsemen #2) is now out!!! You can find it here.

Oh my gosh, I can hardly believe it’s out myself! There were weeks where I wasn’t sure this book would EVER finish. But I’m SO excited to share it with you all! There’s a lot I want to say about War and Miriam, but I’ll keep this short because if you are, in fact, planning on snagging a copy of War, then you have a lot of reading ahead of you already! I’ll probably do a Facebook Live post in another week or two—once people have read the book—to chat with you all about War. Until then, I hope you enjoy the book! Oh, and here are a few updates on the other versions of the book:

Paperback and Audiobooks
I’m still in the process of getting the paperback book formatted. Only once I know the book’s official page count will my cover designer be able to make the wraparound cover for War. (The width of the book spine depends on the number of pages in the book.) I have no clue how long it will take—my husband formats my books, and he was going to do it earlier this week, but our daughter caught a nasty stomach bug, and the two of us have had to take time off of work to take care of her, so it’s delayed this a bit. Once we’re back in the office full-time, he’ll get it formatted, and then it’s just a matter of finishing the cover. That all being said, the paperback version will probably be out a few weeks from now. I will let you all know once it’s available to purchase.

As for the audiobook, this one will take a bit longer. My lovely narrator, Susannah Jones, won’t be able to start working on the book until August, and honestly, once that begins, it takes about two to three months for the book to be recorded, edited, proofed, and then approved for sale. So I imagine it’ll be out in the fall. Sorry in advance for the delays! Again, I will let you all know once it’s ready!

From the bottom of my heart, thank you all for your readership. It truly means the world to me that you have all taken a chance on my books. Here’s to hoping War is everything you hoped it would be!

Hugs and happy reading,
Laura

War Will Release July 11

Sorry I've been MIA on here! For the last several weeks--okay, let's be honest, for the last several months--I've been manically trying to finish this novel for you all. Originally it was supposed to be released in April ... then that date got pushed to May ... then I was determined to get it to you all by June ... and here we are in July. It's finally, finally at a place where I can give it a hard release date, and July 11 is approximately 9 days from now--yippee!!!

I think I've briefly mentioned that some of my release schedule setbacks have had to do with personal issues. I had a solid three months of back-to-back flus, colds, and infections that my dear, sweet spawn gave me, so the shear number of sick days I had to take this winter and spring was staggering. Combine that with a few personal tragedies and a high risk pregnancy (still pregnant over here, and I'm missing coffee like it's a limb I've lost), and the time's just slipped by me. 

That's all sort of an apology and an explanation wrapped into one. I don't usually share my personal stuff on here, but sometimes I'm sure it's nice to hear about the person behind the books! Also, I know I've left you all hanging for a while, but I didn't really want to post anything here until I knew for sure when I was going to release War!

There won't be any pre-orders for the novel, but I will post here and on social media once the book has hit shelves. If you would rather not check back in here, I have a mailing list, and I will be sending out a release day email for War to all my subscribers on July 11. So, if that works better for you, you can join my newsletter! Here's the sign up link. 

If you enjoy teasers, I'll be posting at least one between now and next Thursday on Facebook. (And maybe on Instagram and Twitter too, if I'm particularly on my shit! Hehe!) 

Thank you all for your patience! Big hugs to you all!

Happy reading,
Laura
