The Final Countdown... (imagine Europe's song playing in the background)

Wow!  I can't believe it...but tomorrow is the day!  Tuesday, February 1st, Stephanie and I will realize a dream of publishing some wonderful books by some previously undiscovered talent. :)  We are very excited for the authors and for Astraea Press.  We hope you are too!

We'll be having a launch party tomorrow so we invite all of you to join our reader group at Here you can meet our authors and some of the staff of Astraea.  Feel free to post questions for anyone and find out all you wanted to know and more about what makes these authors tick!  Then surf on over to our website and order a book!
We will be releasing two to three books a week for the next several weeks and I know at least one (or two, or three, or four) of these books will be perfect for your e-library.
Thanks to all of you for all the support you have given us over the past couple of months. The process has been challenging, interesting, strange, rewarding and most of all FUN!  So come on out tomorrow and peruse our new releases.  We are proud of presenting good, clean and fun romance and we hope you are too!
Happy Writing!

Tomorrow! Tomorrow! I love ya Tomorrow! You're only a Day Awaaaay...

Astraea Press is excited to announce that tomorrow we will be involved in a "Sweet Romance Pitch Day."  It's an opportunity for all you writers out there to get your stories out in front of some publishers in a very low key fashion. As Carol Ann says on her blog, "The best part is that you can do so in your fuzzy pink slippers from the comfort of your own home."

So hit the following link to learn all the details and come and join in on the fun!

Happy Writing!

The Final Countdown...

We are just days away from launching our first collection of books!  Yee-haw!  When the first book is published, it will be the culmination of a dream not only for our authors, but for Stephanie and myself.  The opportunity to present the public with books we can be proud to be put our stamp on is exciting!  The plan is to gradually launch books throughout the entire month of February. We hope you all are anxious to read these wonderful new works as we are to publish them!

We also have several new and beautiful covers designed by the talented Elaina.  All of our covers have been posted on our Facebook page so if you are a member of our FB page, hop on over to see them.  And if you aren't... well, become a fan and keep up with all our latest exciting news and cover releases.

Thanks for all the support you have given us over the past couple of months... and keep submitting your stories.  We want your name on the cover of one (or more than one) of our books!

Happy Writing!

Beauty Abounds

Our uber-talented cover artist has done it again!  Elaina (Hi Elaina!) has produced two more gorgeous covers for our next two books to be released in February.  Aren't they eye-catching and lovely??  

Speaking of our February release dates... We still have a few slots open and we would love to publish your masterpiece and we can't do that if you don't submit your work. So send them in!  And remember, just because we might not accept one of your works, doesn't mean you don't have a hidden gem somewhere in your files.  Search high and low through your stash of secret writings, dust them off and attach them to an email and push "Send."

You won't regret it.  I am confident.

Happy Writing!
