The Emperor of Evening Stars is Out Now

Today's the day! T he Emperor of Evening Stars (The Bargainer #2.5) , Des's novella is finally out! You can find it on Amazon here . Calling this book a novella is a bit of a misnomer. At 55,000 words (roughly 200 pages) it's more like a short novel. I can't begin to tell you how much fun I had sharing all of Des's past with you. The book spans from his earliest years, up to where book two leaves off. You'll get to see old scenes given new life from the Bargainer's perspective, as well as never before seen scenes told by the King of the Night. Right now the print version is not yet available, but it will be in another couple weeks. At this point in time, there will be no audiobook for this book, so you'll have to read it the old-fashioned way. I hope that in reading Des's book, you fall in love with him all over again, just as I did. Hugs and happy reading! Laura

The Emperor of Evening Stars Playlist

For all my music lovers, I here's the playlist for The Emperor of Evening Stars (The Bargainer #2.5) ! These were just a few of the songs that inspired me while I wrote the novella. I felt they captured some of the various stages of Des's life, which I really want to extrapolate on here, but it would be too spoiler-y, so you'll have to make do with this explanation. Happy listening!  

The Emperor of Evening Stars is Available for Pre-Order

The countdown to release day begins! The Emperor of Evening Stars (The Bargainer #2.5) is available for pre-order, and you can find it here . Technically, I've been calling this book a novella, but it is over two hundred pages, roughly the length of a shorter novel. For those of you familiar with my Bargainer series, this is Desmond Flynn's novel. It includes his life growing up, how he came to wear the crown of the Kingdom of Night and all sorts of other tidbits from the time before he met Callie. It also includes several scenes you've seen from Callie's point of view--such as their first meeting, the night of her dance, his return after seven years (and more)--and some additional scenes of the two of them throughout their time together. Oh, and did I mention there's a little hint of what's to come in the final book in the series? 'Cause there is! I can't wait to share this book with you. It's no secret that I love Des, and sharing his past

A Strange Hymn (The Bargainer #2) is Now Out

The day is finally here!  A Strange Hymn  is now out on Amazon!  You can check it out here!   You can also scroll down for the book's description at the bottom of this post. Out of all the books I’ve written, this one definitely took the longest to finish, though that was, in large part, because so many non-writing life events pulled me away from the computer. It’s my greatest hope that, in spite of all the waiting,  A Strange Hymn  is everything you hoped it would be! Des and Callie's story is far from over, as is the mystery that began in book one ... If you haven't started The Bargainer series, this new adult paranormal romance stars a fae king and the woman he can't stay away from.

Q&A and A Strange Hymn Teaser

Hey readers! Sorry for being so MIA.
