Happy Birthday, Desert Breeze!

Desert Breeze Publishing is two years old… and we’re celebrating! I first met Gail Delaney, one of the owners, back when we both wrote for another now-defunct epub. We bonded at RT and just had a blast. The next year, I saw her again at RT and met her roomie, Jenifer Ranieri, who now co-owns DBP with Gail. Do not ask how many butterscotch martinis we consumed in Houston. Please.

I was supposed to have this blog up this morning, and I apologize for being late with it. A doctor’s appointment I had forgotten threw me off and totally wrecked my schedule. So… here we are. Desert Breeze is two years old and going strong. I’m so happy to be a part of this wonderful publishing company.

Check out my latest DBP release, MARKED FOR MURDER. In this story, the first book in my Keller County Cops Series, Detective Jonah McKee is forced to juggle caring for his rowdy three year-old son and protecting a beautiful amnesia victim who was targeted by a vicious serial murderer… or was she? Brooke Wilson finally remembers her own name — and the name of the man trying to kill her — and the terrifying memory sends her on the run again. Jonah is forced to hide his son and go with her in order to protect her, and along the way they fall in love.

You can read an excerpt and buy the book here. Look for the second book in the series, SHIELD OF VALOR, in September.

  1. What an impressive list of books you have and one of my favorite topics. Hope you had a great time at the RT conference. Sounds like it was so fun.

  2. I see you have way more books available than I have read. When contest judging season is over, I’ll have to get busy.
