Toughness in the face of hardship

One of my favorite video game characters ever was Janne from the old World Heroes series. Based on Joan of Arc, she was one of the first (if not the first) female fighting game characters to rock a sword and awesome armor, but that's not the only reason I like her...

Not the most inspiring picture at first glance, but look closely at her sword arm. Yup, she has one of the toughest looking downed poses ever in fighting game history - even with her health bar empty, she STILL holds up her blade in defiance! Toughness shows through best under adversity and Janne certainly displays it here, looking like she still wants to fight on despite her supposedly "knocked out" (more like just stunned by my estimation) status. What a beast!

Iron Tears (4th in the Iron Flower series) released... and a big sale

Action-packed fantasy adventure with one of the toughest heroines you've ever seen!

The continuing saga of a young warrior whose army-slaying sword belies her kind heart.

Famed warrior Rose receives a request for aid from Count Brandon, who uses the ogre attacks in his territory as an excuse to get her close intending to woo her. Unknown to him, her husband Finn secretly comes along to help. But the monster problem turns out more serious than any of them expect, especially when they must also protect a pair of much less experienced friends. Can the three mightiest warriors of their nation work together in their strained relationship long enough to save their land?

Available on Amazon at full price (click the small pic in the sidebar) but for the month of July you can get it and the previous two books in the series for half off instead at Smashwords! Also, if you haven't already, you can pick up the first book, Iron Bloom, there for FREE!
