1889 labsAlready well established as a writer of free, online fiction, Australian Letitia Coyne is one of a growing number of authors making the successful transition to print and commercial ebooks. One of UK-based bibliotastic’s most popular authors, Letitia Coyne, has been signed by Canadian commercial publisher 1889 Labs, under whose imprint she has released “Touchstone,” a medieval tragedy.

“Letitia’s historical romance novel ‘Petra’ received great feedback from our users and our editor gave it a rave review too,” notes bibliotastic.com co-founder Bernard Gerard. “We are delighted that Letitia has been selected by a commercial publisher and we hope ‘Touchstone’ is a great success. For those of you that want to check out some more of Letitia’s free books we have just uploaded three more of her historical novels (Britannia, Hispania and Caledonia) to bibliotastic.com where they can be downloaded for free, along with Petra.”

“It has been great to make my early work available for free on publishing platforms like bibliotastic,” notes Letitia. “I have had some inspiring reviews and collected a lot of valuable reader feedback and comments. I’m very excited to be taking things to the next level now with Touchstone and 1889 Labs. With this book I’m hoping to bring readers a story with passion and depth, but one where life’s harsher realities are not airbrushed over.”

“Letitia is well known for the epic quality of her stories; she brings her characters and their past eras to life,” adds AM Harte, Editor-In-Chief of 1889 Labs. “Touchstone is no exception.” Founded in 2006, 1889 Labs aims to bring the best web-based authors to the wider reading public.
