Fuck Yeah Warrior Women

Cover Art to Black Blade Blues by J.A. Pitts:

Sarah Beauhall has more on her plate than most twenty-somethings: day job as a blacksmith, night job as a props manager for a low-budget movie, and her free time is spent fighting in a medieval re-enactment group.


When the lead actor breaks Sarah’s favorite one-of-a-kind sword, it sends the director into fits. Sarah agrees to repair the blade to avoid reshooting scenes.
One of the extras claims to be a dwarf and offers to help her at the forge. That’s when things start to get weird. Could the sword really be magic, as he claims? Why does he want her to kill a Portland investment banker? And what is it about that homeless guy that has her on edge?
As if things weren’t surreal enough at that point, Sarah’s girlfriend Katie breaks out the dreaded phrase… “I love you.”
Black Blade Blues is about forging an existence in a world that is much different than one expects.
Oh, and dragons.

Whoa! Look what was in my inbox this morning! Steve LeCouilliard, who is a super nice guy and super savvy cartoonist drew this amazing Bold Riley fan art! Check out more of Steve here:  http://unatheblade.tumblr.com

If you don’t know Leia Weathington’s Sword and Sorcery heroine Bold Riley, check her out here: http://www.boldriley.com/ And follow Leia on Tumblr too! You won’t regret it. 

Seconded. Inspired by cultures many might not be familiar with mixed with the authors own ideas, the two stories up on the site are an entertaining read while Riley herself is a charismatic (and queer!) protagonist.
