So It’s a day early but I guess Amazon decided Legendary is such an amazing YA book that it wanted to release it a day early! It’s official I am a published author with the first book in my 4 book series The Legendary Saga!
Here’s the buy link, and you can also order it in paperback edition for all my traditionalists out there!
OMG I am so beyond excited and nervous to see what people think about My King Arthur and my Knights of the Round Table! And of course the whole new slew of characters I created for this story!
Here are some very special images to go along with this amazing news!
All images are owned and created by me!
Can’t wait to see what people think!
Laters my lovelies!

Finally!! It is time to reveal the final cover of Legendary created by my fantastic publisher Omnific! We also have the official blurb to go with it!
LEGENDARY by L.H. Nicole
Aliana Fagan spent her childhood traveling the world, dreaming of legendary heroes and mythical lands. But after the sudden death of her parents, she hides behind the safety of her camera and her art until a vivid dream has her to digging into her father’s research about Avalon and Camelot. She is soon hurled into a magical realm by forces she thought were only the stuff of fairy tales, and finds herself thrown into an adventure she could have never imagined. And nearly everything she thought she knew about the Arthurian legends is wrong.
The independent eighteen-year-old is shocked to find that the people of Avalon think that she is the Destined One, the only person who can summon King Arthur back to life. Most surprising of all is that it’s up to her to lead the Knights of the Round Table on an epic quest—an adventure that will transport them across the seven magic realms to reclaim all that has been lost so they can defeat the evil Mordrid for good. First, she must bring the ancient warriors into her world and reunite them with their lost brothers. But chaperoning legendary knights-with-a-chivalry-complex is a constant challenge, and she certainly never thought she’d be caught between her intense feelings for the noble Sir Galahad and her growing friendship with the King.
To fulfill the prophecy, Aliana will have to discover the meaning of friendship, bravery, loyalty, true love, and forgiveness. But can she do it all in time to save the realms from Mordrid’s impending Armageddon?
We ready? Drum roll please
OMG!!! It is AMAZEBALLS! Not gonna find many like this!
Legendary will be available to buy this coming Tuesday Feb 25, 2014! Be sure to check it out.
Laters my lovelies!

Hello my lovelies! I realize it has been quite a while since my last post and I greatly apologize for my absence. But I think you will understand why when I tell you that it was because I am finishing writing book 2 of my Legendary Saga and getting everything in line with my publisher for the release of Legendary! I am so thrilled it is less than 3 weeks away! February 25, 2014.
In addition to writing and planning for the release of my first book, I have also been having conversations with my dear friend, MissLittleBookAddict, and her newest addition to her blog- a YA blogger posting under the moniker of DynoMoon. Now I have made it know that I will never give a “review” of a book I read because of the fact that, as an author, I am a bit more picky of a reader, and on the off chance that I pick up a book I don’t like, I don’t want to have to disparage a fellow author’s work. BUT after reading a few of DynoMoon’s reviews– I love them– so I’ve decided that I will most likely re-post those reviews here as well, with the permission of MLBA of course.
Now on to the next order of business. I am apart of the YARWA-a young adult chapter of the RWA and we are thrilled to announce our first chapter contest–The Rosemary contest. Here is the official post with all the information, I highly encourage all un published authors of YA and NA to enter.
The YARWA Chapter is proud to announce the Rosemary Contest, the only RWA contest specifically for YA writers in all genres.
Final round judges will be two editors and an agent in each of the following categories:
YA Fantasy, Futuristic & Paranormal
YA Fusion (Any YA novel that doesn’t fit into one of the above categories.)
Romantic Elements in the novel are NOT required to enter this contest.
Eligibility: Authors must not be published or contracted to be published in book-length fiction (40,000 words or more) in the genre of Young Adult Fiction, which for purposes of this contest includes New Adult fiction.
In addition, any author who has been published but not contracted in their chosen category for a minimum of five (5) years may also enter this contest.
Fee: $15 YARWA members/$25 non-members
For a complete list of rules, visit http://yarwa.com/contest-2014/
Questions? Please contact Contest Coordinator Rebecca Lynn at YARWAContestCoord [at] gmail [dot] com.
I love this contest for many reasons, and not only because I am on the contest committee and I had a hand in helping to organize/run this one of a kind contest. But because we have branched out to include New Adult in our contest and the YA manuscripts DO NOT need to have romance as the core of the story. Something that many other major contests require and keep many great authors from entering their stories. We are a totally unique contest and have managed to get many great authors, agents and editors as the judges for The Rosemary Contest.
Till next time lovelies!
