For all you lovely readers in Germany I finally I have news on the publication of Redemption. The publishers are planning to release it in April 2018. It will follow the re-issue of the first two books which will come out in the months before. It has been a long wait for you all and I’m sorry for that I can only be grateful to those who have been so patient.. xx Lara
It’s been a long time coming but finally, Redemption, the third and final book in my Twins of Saranthium series will be coming out in ebook on November 5. I don’t have a cover yet but it should be here soon! It’s been years in the making but at last it is done. I hope people are happy with how Shaan and Tallis’s tale ends.

Well I’ve been talking to my publishers and we have a timetable leading up to publication for Equinox. All things going well, Rosie Black 2, will be in stores in November! Yes, it’s exciting to have a month now stay tuned and I’ll let you know the actual date as soon as I have it.
I’m deep into the first draft of my other project – my adult fantasy trilogy The Twins of Saranthium – full of despotic gods, lost men and an odyssey through the Void. So, as I often do when writing, I’m also reading books that help me get into the frame of mind I need to inhabit that ancient world. I just finished one of my favourite authors latest,
Lavinia, by Ursula Le Guin.
Lavinia is a mythical character from Virgil’s epic poem, The Aenid, a story of Rome’s origins. Lavinia, like Helen of Troy, started a war, but because she refused to marry the man chosen for her instead following an oracle’s telling to marry a man named Aeneas of Troy. In the poem, Lavinia exists in only a few lines, but Le Guin has taken her story and imagined it into a novel about a young woman who wouldn’t be given, wouldn’t be taken. Fabulous stuff and well worth a read.
Rosie News…..possible publication date….
Equinox is under the editor’s eye and I’m hoping to have a meeting soon to go over everything before I start work on the final draft for its publication which is in…….we’re thinking….September. Yay. Although given the nature of all things publishing this is still a preliminary date. Stay tuned for further announcements.
Twitter: I seem to be having all kinds of issue with twitter lately – a total pain as I am highly addicted to it! – but I can’t seem to use it all lately. Any one else having problems??
