Teaser for my novel Iron Bloom which is available on Amazon and Smashwords, but I'm going to be posting quite a bit of it for you to enjoy for free too. Here's the summary: Journey back to a time of epic legends with the tale of Rose, a mighty warrior torn between the power of the sword and her longing for a peaceful life. A young woman with a kind heart and extraordinary constitution, Rose becomes a warrior to better the world. Despite the wealth and fame she wins as one of the greatest champions of her time, the bloody reality of her new life is nothing like her ideal dream. She yearns for a chance to escape the violence. She finds that chance in Ethan, the leader of an altruistic pacifist group. But when a barbarian horde invades their kingdom, Rose knows that she can make a difference by taking up her sword again. Will her need to protect her homeland cost her the man she loves?
