Happy Birthday from the Cactus Rose Line!!
Hello and Happy birthday Wild Rose Press! I’m Patricia Tanner, Senior Editor with the Cactus Rose Line (historical western). I’ve been an editor with the Cactus line since the doors opened three years ago. We had some great stories and authors to work with from the start. With Karyna DaRosa and her book Dry Moon, Devon Matthews and Angel in the Rain, and Paty Jager’s Marshal in Petticoats. Now we have a growing line up of books from returning authors- Lauri Robinson, Kathy Otten, Linda Carroll-Bradd, Celia Yeary, Loretta Rogers, as well as exciting reads from Anna Kathryn Lanier, Sandi Hampton, Linda LaRoque, Sheridon Smythe, Helen Hardt, Leanne Karella, Donna Dalton, Stacy Dawn, and Emma Sanders.
Our list is growing with outstanding western romances from sweet to hot and spicy. Short or long. We have a western for any lover of the old west with spunky heroines and hunky heroes.
June is cowboy month at The Wild Rose Press. During the month there will be free reads you can download from Cactus authors. We also will have available our first anthology- Lawmen and Outlaws with novellas by- Lauri Robinson, Loretta Rogers, Linda Carroll-Bradd, and Helen Hardt. The stories in this anthology are a good mix of what you can find in the line from all our authors- Sweet to hot.
We have three editors in this line, and by working closely, we strive to put out quality books. Later in this hour you will hear from Helen Andrew about our exciting Earth Songs series and Eve Mallary will post about what is coming from us the rest of the year. And before we leave we’ll also give you some insight into what each of us looks for in a submission.
