Ladies and gentlemen,
As promised, we are celebrating Fridays in February with discounted reads!
This week – grab yourself some Appalachian Alchemy on Kindle for the low price of 2.99!
AND… Yes… there’s more.
Find Last Night In Granada, reviewed by Kirkus, for the same price of 2.99 on Kindle!
From Kirkus: A surreal performance that’s worth a read, particularly as a reflection of a historically important time and place.
For Valentine’s Day, we will have Noreen Lace and Ron Terranova’s books!
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!
Delphinium – Summer Edition is now available on Kindle!
At REaDLips we believe our purpose is to give. Profits from the Summer Edition benefit literacy programs. Every time you buy, you give!
We are currently accepting submissions for our Winter Edition.
Profits from our Winter Edition will benefit recovery programs.
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.
Please give the gift of Delphinium in two ways –
buy it for a friend, and you give to people in need.
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.
Order your copies – buy a gift – give a chance to someone to learn to read or write!

We have two calls today:
1.We are presently looking for short stories, poetry, and art for our first issue of Delphinium due out in July.
- Literary fiction that is well written. Language should be beautiful. Wording should be precise. There is no word limit. We do not accept genre pieces.
- Poetry, any style, any length.
- Art, black and white, for the interior.
- Deadline is June 1st. We’ve updated this date – spread the word, more time to submit!
2. An annual book of celebration. The series will contain essays and narratives that celebrate some aspect of life – teachers, animals, the sky. However, it’s not random.
Our first selection celebrates Recovery. We are looking for true stories, memories or essays, experimental styles are acceptable, of recovering. Think of recovering as a broad topic, but the pieces should be about recovering from a major life event, alcohol or drug use, divorce or death, etc.
All submissions should be typed, double spaced, 12 point times new roman or similar with one inch margins. They should be in English. They should represent your finest polished work. Email submissions to Readlipspress at gmail.com.

Spread the word, ladies and gentlemen!
