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.

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?

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
