The Bastion was humanity’s last hope against the fearsome undead creatures known as the Inferi Scourge. A fortified city with a high wall, surrounded by lush land rich with all the resources needed to survive, protected by high mountain summits, and a massive gate to secure the only pass into the valley, the Bastion became the last stronghold of the living on earth. But one fateful day, the gate failed and the Inferi Scourge destroyed the human settlements outside the walls and trapped the survivors inside the city. Now decades later, the last remaining humans are struggling to survive in a dying city as resources and hope dwindle.

Now available: “Puppy Love” by L.T. Smith

As a dog mom I think this is wonderful. Pet rescue is a big part of my life and I am proud to have my publisher be an an active participant in helping to raise money for dogs in need. Congrats on the new release!

Ylva Publishing

cover_puppy-love_miniWe are very happy to announce that the e-book version of Puppy Love by L.T. Smith is now available.

Ellie Anderson has given up on love. Her philosophy is “Why let someone in when all they do is leave?” So instead, she fills her life with work and dodges her sister’s matchmaking.

Then she meets Charlie—a gorgeous, brown-eyed Border Terrier.  Charlie is in need of love and a home, prompting Ellie to open the doors to feeling once again.

However, she isn’t the only one who is falling for the pup’s charms.

Emily Carson is her rival for Charlie’s affection, thus starting what can only be classed as a working relationship.

By allowing herself to love Charlie, can Ellie open her heart to anyone else?

Puppy Love is a special project for us. All of Linda’s royalties as well as the graphic artists fees will go to the Dogs Trust

Ah, the Holidays

Happy holidays to new friends and old.

Women and Words

Some of us enter this part of the year with astonishment that it’s already this time of year. I’m one of those people.images

It seems like once Halloween is behind us, the winter holidays just come rushing in. And with those holidays often comes conflict. In theory, these holidays are supposed to bring people together to celebrate and enjoy being a family. But if you have one of those families that don’t get along, this is a problem for you.

For the LGBT community, the holiday woes have another layer: Too often, families do not accept partners. And when those two partners each have a family that wants that person to spend the holidays with them, things can get pretty miserable.

In my case, whenever I tried to split my holidays  between my and my partner’s family, my mother gave me such a hard time and would tell me, “THIS…

Professional hockey player Rob D’Amico is confused when he’s chosen to take part in a reading program for inner-city students. While athletes are role models, he tends toward the gregarious and playful side, rather than a studious bent.


Despite the lack of funding plaguing her inner-city district, every day kindergarten teacher Alaina Rossa ensures her students learn something to prepare them for life. At first she’s unsure how a hockey player will help her achieve that goal.


When Rob visits Alaina’s class for the first time, they welcome him with open arms, despite the lack of even the basic supplies for their education. He takes it upon himself to get the students what they need, sweeping Alaina up in the excitement.


As time goes by and she learns more about Rob, Alaina finds her heart opening to him. Is it possible her soul mate could be found in a world so different from her own? And for Rob, the last person he thought he’d find forever love with was an elementary school teacher wearing clothes permanently stained with finger paint. But when you’re playing for keeps, sometimes you have to get a little dirty.
