A special release at The Wild Rose Press

Take a read of the following message from Rhonda Penders which gives the background for this fabulous book now available from The Wild Rose Press. Not only is it a great story, but all proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.

Judith Rochelle, is one of our multipublished authors at The Wild Rose Press as well as a personal friend. In late summer, 2007 I approached her with an idea of a project that would enable RJ and me to give something back for all the wonderful things that had happened to us since we opened in May 2006. I wanted to find an organization that I felt everyone, everywhere would care about and really embrace. While many qualified, the one that kept coming back to my mind was St. Jude's Children's Hospital.

A few days later, Judith created a synopsis and a proposal for a book incorporating romance, suspense and St. Jude's. It took my breath away at what she'd come up with. Judith wrote the book, RJ and I edited it, and Kim Mendoza did the beautiful cover. None of us, including the publishing company, will receive any compensation; every penny will go to St. Jude's. Children's Hospital.

The result of this, is the amazing Crimson Rose book called "On the Run" by Judith Rochelle. The book will be offered in both print and electronic format. The amount raised will be announced on our web site twice a year. The first report to be posted at the end of June 2008.

If you've purchased this book, thank you for your contribution to St. Jude's, if you haven't purchased it yet, I strongly encourage you to do so. The download is $5.00 and will go into a special fund to be donated to St. Jude's twice a year.

New Year, New Release

Today sees the release of The Diamond Virgin from Wings ePress. This was my very first contracted book, so it's very special to me.

The Diamond Virgin tells the story of Paige Frasier, an English photojournalist. Rebuilding her career following her father’s death, Paige is blackmailed into covering the latest tabloid scandal involving a press-hating billionaire. She isn’t prepared for the secrets of the past that threaten her fragile peace, or for the devastating attraction to the one man who holds the key to her future.

Please click HERE if you'd like to read an excerpt.

Happy New Year to all.
