“A heartwarming story of a young woman trying to survive in the west of the late 1800’s. Briana Vested does a wonderful job of telling this dusty tale filled with action, drama, and romance, not necessarily in that order. This doesn’t happen often to me, but once I got to know Cord and the rest of her great cast of characters, I had a hard time putting this book down.”

A lovely review!

A Girl Named Cord has just received such a lovely review!


“If I may start this review with a kind of comparison – I recall reading something Joss Whedon wrote once which, if I paraphrase correctly, said something like ‘you make a great drama by taking people that the reader cares for and putting them in peril’.  He might also have said of his work that throwing in a redemptive story arc also adds to the mix very well.  And in doing so you’d have about as good a description of Briana Vedsted’s ‘A Girl Named Cord’ as you could get.

She creates heart-warming, real characters, introducing them in a gentle and thoroughly likeably way at the commencement of the story, but with some hints and foreshadowing of the conflict yet to come.  And just when you’re really invested in these characters, the conflict comes in full force, with real drama and high stakes action that is compelling and unputdownable.  Then we have a resolution for a time before the past rises again to be reckoned with, for good or ill.

Cord is a lively and kind character with real strength and strong principles and she takes us on a merry ride through the tale.  She makes a great heroine for a wonderful YA western novel and I found myself visualising her tale like a movie, so strong was the impact of Briana’s writing.  I’ve liked Briana’s earlier work very well, but see real progression in this novel.  Her writing and story-telling ability is growing apace, just like the speed and vividness of her novel.  I recommend the novel highly to those that love YA books, westerns, and really anything with high stakes drama, redemption, and a warmth in characters that brings a genuine tear to the eye.”

A sale!!!

Hurrah! I finally got my first book sale for the month of August!!! Yah! “A Girl Named Cord” is making a comeback!

Here is a little excerpt from the book.:


All was silent as the little party snuck to the barn. Cord was both thrilled and horrified that there had been no other guards outside the bunkhouse door. But at the barn, their luck abruptly changed. “I thought I made myself clear.” Mr. Gibson hissed, looking like he’d just woken up, standing in the doorway with his arms crossed.  Behind him stood his small army. “If you valued your lives, you would have stayed put!”

Jake shoved Alton’s scrawny body in front of his own and demanded, “Stay out of our way, the lot of you, or you’ll have to pick up this kid with a stick and a spoon!”

In the moonlight, Mr. Gibson looked like he’d been kicked in the teeth. He stammered, “A-Alton?”

Jake insisted, “Get a move on!”

As one, the whole army sidestepped out of trigger-happy Jake’s way.

Mr. Gibson’s face was livid and he swore, “If anything happens to that kid, I’ll-”

Cord shoved Mr. Gibson back, not caring that she was putting herself in harm’s way as she spat, “You’ll what? Trap us? Torture us? Burn our house to the ground? You already did all that, so shut up before these fine gentlemen find any more reasons to kill you!”

Going very red in the face, Mr. Gibson held up his hands in defeat and backed away.

Cord couldn’t help but grin rebelliously as she tipped her hat to the whole gang, cheerfully adding, “Good evening all.”
