Thank you, Common Launch Team!

It takes a slew of people to create a successful book launch.

From sharing the cover, to participating in the blog tour, to attending the launch party, and, most importantly, to purchasing a copy of the author’s new release, it takes a whole team of people to draw attention to a new release and make its launch a smashing hit.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for helping us launch Common by Laurie Lucking!

It is a stunning debut, and we are proud to have it listed among our titles.

To those of you who came to the Facebook launch party: thank you! We are so pleased you took time out of your busy evening to celebrate with our authors and party hosts. You’re the best!

To those of you who participated in the blog tour or read the blog posts: thank you! We are thrilled you cared so much about Laurie Lucking’s story to invest your time and/or blog space to learning more about her beautifully crafted new book. We cannot say thank you enough.

To those of you who shared the cover, the book description, or even the listing on Amazon or Barnes & Noble: a thousand times, thank you! That kind of exposure is what makes other readers take notice and decide to try out a new author. We couldn’t have done this without you.

To everyone who worked behind the scenes to craft this lovely experience for our readers: thank you! From cover artists, to formatters, to editors, to party hosts, to blog tour hosts, and everything in between, our team works hard behind the scenes to bring each of these titles to our readers, and we cannot thank them enough.

Thank you again, and happy reading!

~The L2L2 Publishing Team

About the Book

One person knows of the plot against the royal family and cares enough to try to stop it—the servant girl they banished.

Leah spends her days scrubbing floors, polishing silver, and meekly curtsying to nobility. Nothing distinguishes her from the other commoners serving at the palace, except her red hair.

And her secret friendship with Rafe, the Crown Prince of Imperia.

But Leah’s safe, ordinary world begins to splinter. Rafe’s parents announce his betrothal to a foreign princess, and she unearths a plot to overthrow the royal family. When she reports it without proof, her life shatters completely when the queen banishes her for treason.

Harbored by an unusual group of nuns, Leah must secure Rafe’s safety before it’s too late. But her quest reveals a villain far more sinister than an ambitious nobleman with his eye on the throne.

Can a common maidservant summon the courage to fight for her dearest friend?

Common Releases Today!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

One year ago today, we signed a new author to L2L2 Publishing.

An avid reader since birth (her parents claim she often kept them up late begging to hear just one more story), Laurie Lucking discovered her passion for writing after leaving her career as an attorney to become a stay-at-home mom. She writes young adult fantasy with a strong thread of romance, and her debut novel, Common, releases in 2018 from Love2ReadLove2Write Publishing. Laurie is the secretary of her local ACFW chapter and a co-founder of www.landsuncharted.com, a blog for fans of clean young adult speculative fiction. A Midwestern girl through and through, she currently lives in Minnesota with her husband and two young sons. Find out more about Laurie and her writing by visiting www.laurielucking.com.

And now, exactly one year later, her stunning debut novel, Common, releases.

Only one person knows of the plot against the royal family and cares enough to try to stop it—the servant girl they banished.

Congratulations, Author Laurie Lucking! We are crazy about your book, and we know our readers will be as well!

In fact, here are what a few of her endorsers had to say.

Common is a well-told tale of true sacrificial friendship with a dash of sweet romance and a sprinkling of fairy tale magic. Teens and adults alike will enjoy this engaging coming-of-age fantasy.”

—Carrie Anne Noble, award-winning author of The Mermaid’s Sister

~

Common pulls readers into a fantasy world of forbidden attraction, unforeseeable twists, and memorable characters. Plan on staying up all night reading—you won’t be able to put it down!”

—Sara Baysinger, author of the Black Tiger Series

~

Common is a lovely coming-of-age story with a sweet romance that will have you holding your breath in anticipation.”

—Julie Hall, USA Today Best-Selling author of the Life After Series

~

“Engaging and intriguing! Laurie Lucking’s Common pulled me in and kept me riveted from beginning to end. I look forward to seeing what she comes up with next!”

—Katie Clark, author of the Enslaved Series

~

Common deserves every point on each of its sparkling five stars. I truly loved it, regardless of the fact that it’s a lot more romance-heavy than I normally read. The book taught me a lesson about expanding my boundaries, and that a great story is simply a great story and can be thoroughly enjoyed regardless of whether or not it’s squarely set in your favorite genre. I feel silly for ever being so picky!

If you’re looking for a relaxing, heartwarming story you can dive into headfirst, I highly recommend that you grab a copy of Common. You won’t regret it!”

—Jamie Foley, author of the Sentinel Trilogy

Two Stunning New Novellas

We had two stunning novellas release over the Christmas holidays, and we wanted to share them with you if you haven’t already seen them.

Resistance by Amy Brock McNew is the first of three planned novellas in the Reluctant Warrior Chronicles. This book interlaces with Reconciliation, yet tells the story of Nate and Ilona instead of Liz and Ryland, and comes before the next full-length novel in this series, Resilience, to release mid-2018.

Now a little about the book itself:

Nate Vaughn lives in Ryland’s shadow, always the little brother, always the screwup. After their parents die, he embraces a world of greed and destruction. There, he is powerful, using his God-given gifts to demolish those weaker than he.

He is untouchable. He is in control. Or so he thinks.

Ilona Romenenko is a survivor. She has endured unimaginable torment at the hands of evil and remains unbroken. Her mission: to save those who suffer as she did. Yet she encases the deepest parts of her heart in steel to protect herself from further agony.

She is untouchable. She is in control. Or so she thinks.

When Nate and Ilona are called to fight side by side, their pasts collide, forcing them to face their demons and the growing feelings between them, stealing precious control. Will Nate let go of his past—and will Ilona open her heart—before their demons destroy them both?

Beast Hunter by Michele Israel Harper is the prequel novella to the soon-to-be-released Beauty and the Beast retelling, Kill the Beast. This book introduces our readers to Ro, the huntress who has been hired to sneak into an enchanted castle and kill the beast residing within. We are also planning a 2018 release date for Kill the Beast.

Here is a little more about this book as well:

Ro’s people are starving. A curse has overtaken her land, blackening the soil, wiping out crops, and bringing ruin to all. She doesn’t know what to do.

The only people who thrive are the huntsmen, brought in by the mysterious Gautier to stem the flow of ravenous creatures looking for food.

When Ro accidentally kills a wolf, an idea begins to form. Could she become a huntress? Earn enough livres to feed her family?

But her world is shattered when her father promises her to a beast in exchange for his own life. If she doesn’t go, a curse will fall on her family worse than the one destroying their land. But Ro is determined to save her family another way.

Will Ro have the courage to seek her own fate instead of the one pressed upon her?

We hope you enjoy both of these new titles and that you have a lovely new year.

Happy Reading!

About the Book

Fourteen-year-old Fear learns she was a parachute baby, dumped over the edge of the Gliding Lands as an infant. Fascinated by the floating cities in the sky before, now she’s desperate for answers.

But a slave isn’t likely to get those answers.

When her abusive Downer family throws her from their hovel, Fear takes refuge with a family who shows her love for the first time. Surely they can’t be trusted. Years of abuse and molestation has taught her that.

Then her brother discovers where she’s hiding and tries to kidnap her. Fear will never let him touch her again. Her new family conceals her at The Fallen, a ranch that hides parachute babies from the Uppers who discarded them.

Just as she’s beginning to embrace yet another home, Fear’s new little sister, Happy, is kidnapped and taken to the Uppers’ temple harem. Fear must go against her namesake, find a working hoverpod, and journey to the dreaded Gliding Lands before the little girl’s innocence is ripped from her forever.

Can she save Happy in time?

And will she find answers to the burning question of why anyone would throw her away?
