Portrait of a King

Read the first entry, a prequel novella, in a new epic fantasy series! Lyara spends her days painting and publishing seditious periodicals, all while dreaming of the chance to do more. After she falls for a royal soldier, she suspects she’s found that chance. The crown belongs on his head. And maybe she can transfer that dream from her canvas to reality—after all, it takes an artist’s touch to paint the portrait of a king.

Meet L.A. Buck

A goat farmer, engineering graduate, first degree black belt, and medical school student, the one thing Lauren Buck always knew she wanted to be was an author. The first stories she ever wrote were about super heroes. But, raised on a steady diet of Lewis and Tolkien, it was only a matter of time before she set her sights on epic fantasy.
