Lawmen and Outlaws Christmas Anthology

The Cactus staff is looking to put together another Lawmen and Outlaws anthology. Only this time it will be Christmas themed stories to be released for Christmas 2010.

The stories need to be no longer than 25,000 words with either a lawman or outlaw as the hero.

Send a synopsis to with Christmas Anthology in the subject line by November 1, 2009. We'll pick four stories and contact those authors by November 15, 2009. The completed story must be turned in by February 1, 2010.

Cowboy Month

Ok its not a cowboy picture but it is a Yellow Rose and this is Yellow Rose and Cactus Rose Month (sorry Cactus ladies, I can't find a Cactus Rose). This photo is actually straight out of my real garden at home. Its a Peace Rose and it was sent to me a couple years ago by one of our authors in the UK - Diyls Xavier. I had my doubts that it would thrive in our climate but it has and it blooms beautifully every year.

Anyway, for those of you who don't know, its Cowboy Month. I won't even pretend to not be partial to this month. I love it. I absolutely love it.

The Cactus Rose line has an awesome anthology that released last week entitled: "Lawmen and Outlaws", and at the end of the month, another of our WayBack, Texas tales will come out. This one is an anthology by three Yellow Rose authors - entitled "Finding Their WayBack". You won't want to miss reading either of these anthologies.

If you've never tried a Yellow Rose or Cactus Rose story let me gently encourage you to check them out. All titles are on sale this month and I don't think you'll be disappointed by any of them.

So Cowboy Up everyone; let's spend some time with cowboys and cowgirls form the old west or the contemporary ranches of today.
