Congrats to Dan Rhys for the publication of The Lone Escapist.
A 2018 Semi-finalist for the CIBA ‘Clue Awards’. An award for mystery suspense and thriller novels!
“When college English professor Bob Kelton finds his students murdered in the classroom, he realizes that the only evidence proving the identity of the killer also proves that Kelton violated school policy by being away from his class when the killings occurred. Kelton now must decide to either reveal the evidence and lose his career or hide it and risk his life to catch the murderer himself. The result is a roller coaster of events, including romance, loss, forgiveness–and even a thrilling showdown–that profoundly change Kelton’s life forever.”
Available on Amazon! and Kindle.

Ladies and gentlemen,
Rebecca Brooke who works with ReadLips in Poetic Petal Press designs the books of Poetry. Her experiences with Known as Ash’s Fire and Ash and Bozena Zawickz Neither Innocent or Guilty have produced beautiful results!
On our end, Eddy, by Noreen Lace has been featured at the Poe Museum. Eddy is a fictional account of an actual event in Poe’s life, and as an expert, she delivered a sensitive and intimate portrayal of Edgar Allan Poe experiencing the results of a Laudanum overdose.
Our Summer Release of Delphinium is a touching compilation of international poets and writers. We are very fortunate to have such a vast array of artists submitting. Keep it up, loves.
Our new release is Chris Pellizzari’s Last Night in Granada! We are excited about this book. I, personally, want to run off to Spain for a little romance!
Keep Reading. Keep Writing. Keep going!
We are looking forward to the New Year – yes already! We’re not forgetting about Thanksgiving or Christmas, Hanukah, or any other lovely celebration that is coming up before then – and we might have a surprise or two before the new year as well – but we do have these two lovely little things.
Noreen Lace has dropped us into her deep and thoughtful prose once again with her upcoming release of Eddy.
Eddy is a fictional take on Edgar Allan Poe’s actual near suicide in 1848.
Our new author, Valerie Cooper, will be tantalizing readers for some time to come. We’ve contracted with her for two books and one short fiction. The short fiction should be hitting the market around the New Year – quite possibly before.
Valerie’s poetry and fiction has appeared in a number of literary journals.
The Kiss is a fictional story about a meeting another couple on a camping trip and, shall we say, they fall into experimentation. The memory stays with the female narrator long after the experience and affects the rest of her life.
We have a lot of exciting things happening at REaDLips! We’ve been reading and signing more women writers and making more connections in the world opening our authors and readers to a wide variety of opportunities.
Finally – the December Issue of Delphinium will be hitting the bookstores before December is finished!
We have secured the rights to Barlow Adams’ Appalachian Alchemy, due out in September:
Life is different in Beattyville, Kentucky, a never-was town, one of the poorest in the state. Most people born there, along the shores of the Kentucky River, die on those same banks. For Marshall Merrick, called “Book” by just about everyone he knows, reading is an escape, and a salvation. Beckoned away from his tiny town by the allure of the world he has read about, his desire to escape his circumstances is warred upon by poverty and his obligations to the tribal lifestyle that would label him a traitor for his ambition.
We are actively seeking submissions for a fall issue of Delphinium, due out in September. This is an unthemed issue and we need art, poetry, and fiction.
As well, we are in need of fiction or nonfictional narratives about recovery for our themed Winter Issue of Delphinium, Joy of Recovery.
Proceeds from Delphinium benefit literacy programs. Proceeds from the Winter issue will benefit recovery programs.
Delphinium’s First issue is born!
Share far and wide because we’ve decided to share the proceeds –
we will be giving some of the proceeds to literacy programs.
Valerie Cooper is our Cover Artist for this issue. Beautiful Photograph. Cassie Cocoran is our featured artist in this issue.
Authors include Noreen Lace, Kenneth Weene, Virginia Davis, Stephen Raulli, Jessica Mehta, Valerie Cooper, Sarah Bigham, Persis Karim, Katherine Howd Machan, Lynne Johnson, Joseph Milosch, Jo Rousseau.
