About


My real name is Laura Armstrong. "Burgandy Ice" comes from the name of a rose my husband gave me for Valentine's one year that is somehow surviving despite me. (The mis-spell comes from my emotional reaction to excessive 'u's.)

My husband, Jeremy, is a classic car enthusiast. Check out his stuff  HERE. We have four crazy, awesome kids.

I am writing a book! A paranormal fantasy, of course - a faerytale retelling. In October 2012 I won 2nd place in a short story contest. *Eeep!* Read Shadow Horses.

Toward the end of 2013 I started working full time. Currently I am not accepting review requests. This does not mean that I don't want to help you promote your book, however... please read on!

Please consider the following options:

1) Create a guest post for Colorimetry (FREE) or
2) Access promotional options at Prism Book Tours: http://prismbooktours.blogspot.com/p/in.html

If reviews are what you need... consider options 1 & 2 again. Write a post requesting reviews... or share your book on a Blitz with a review sign-up sheet.

My contact is burgandyice(at)live(dot)com.

I enjoy promoting books including Indie & Small Press Authors.  I have a Nook. :-)
