DAY 4 IS HERE! PRP PRE-BLACK FRIDAY SALE AND GIVEAWAY!

All right! Here we are on DAY 4 of our wonderful PRE-BLACK FRIDAY SALE AND GIVEAWAY! Just take a look at what we've got in store for you today from our PAINTED PONY BOOKS and TORNADO ALLEY PUBLICATIONS imprints!

Let's start with JAMES J. GRIFFIN'S A RANGER TO RIDE WITH--the first book in his LONE STAR RANGER series! Available now for only .99!


Nathaniel Stewart’s life changes in the blink of an eye when his family is murdered by a band of marauding raiders. They’ve made one terrible mistake…they didn’t finish the job. Fourteen-year-old Nathaniel is very much alive and ready to exact the justice his mother, father, and older brother deserve.

Taken in by a company of Texas Rangers, he begins to learn what it means to survive in the rugged wilds of Texas. Each of the Rangers have something to teach Nate, as they come to call him, and he’s a fast learner. When some of the same raiders later return, Nate proves his mettle when he saves the Rangers from being ambushed and wiped out.

A RANGER TO RIDE WITH is the first story in the western series, LONE STAR RANGER. Look for A RANGER TO RECKON WITH, book 2, and all the others that follow!

From our TORNADO ALLEY PRESS imprint, ANGELA CRIDER NEARY'S LI'L TOM AND THE PUSSYFOOT DETECTIVE BUREAU: THE CASE OF THE PARROTS DESAPARECIDOS is on sale for only .99! Angela's debut novel is the first of a delightful series that you will not want to miss--for the cat lovers on your list, especially!


Someone is stealing the parrots of Telegraph Hill! San Francisco is plagued with a rash of exotic birdnappings, and it's up to Li'l Tom and Lola of the Pussyfoot Detective Bureau to track down the culprits and put an end to this sinister scheme. With the help of a motley crew of cats, one rat, and a dog, they'll venture into the dangerous back alleys of Chinatown to rescue the brilliantly plumaged captives!

LI'L TOM AND THE PUSSYFOOT DETECTIVE BUREAU: THE CASE OF THE PARROTS DESAPARECIDOS is a whimsical, all-ages mystery featuring a pair of charming feline detectives. Packed with action, humor, colorful characters, and vivid settings, it's a delightful reading experience for young and old!

And for our FREE offerings being featured today--RICHARD PROSCH'S WAITING FOR A COMET is available! FOR FREE! WAITING FOR A COMET is the first in Richard's incredible series of stories about Jo Harper's growing up years in 1910 Wyoming.


During the long, hot spring of 1910 it seemed all 12-year-old Jo Harper could do was wait. Wait for her father, wait for her friends, wait for the comet that might appear in the sky and wipe out the whole town of Willowby, Wyoming once and for all. But when wild west legend Abby Drake arrives in town lugging an orphaned baby calf, an old-fashioned revolver, and a mystery shrouded with superstition, it’s up to Jo to take action. Why is Abby in town? Who is she after? And what secrets can Jo coax out of her own arch enemy, Emily Bly?

Action, humor, and real life history combine for an exciting mystery about one girl’s summertime quest for family, friendship, and justice on the windburnt Wyoming range at the dawn of a new century.

Another wonderful story we're featuring today is RANDY LEE EICKHOFF'S THE DONKEY THAT CARRIED MARY. FOR FREE! This is from our PRAYERS AND PROMISES imprint, and what a great tale this is!


Sara is a blessed donkey with a magical story to tell! She has been with the Holy Family since before Jesus was born—for she was THE DONKEY THAT CARRIED MARY. From the seemingly endless journey to Bethlehem that long-ago night of his birth, to the dark day of his crucifixion, Sara bears witness to the most important happenings of all time. When she saves the Holy Family from two would-be robbers, Jesus grants Sara immortality—a gift she takes seriously. Never far from Mary’s side, Sara vows to protect her from other humans who would cause her harm.

Join Sara and Mary on their travels together in this unforgettable story for all ages. Who can say that animals cannot talk if they wish? Especially one as special as THE DONKEY THAT CARRIED MARY…

From teenagers to Grandma and Grandpa, everyone will love this story told by Sara, the donkey who carried Jesus’ mother, Mary, on their journey and lived out the long life Jesus promised her, always at Mary’s side. Not a Sunday school lesson, but a warm and funny story of animals and people that brings Biblical events alive in a new way.
—Judy Alter, WWA Hall of Fame writer and author of the Kelly O'Connell Mysteries

DAY 3--PRP'S PRE-BLACK FRIDAY SALE FEATURES SUNDOWN PRESS TODAY!




Do you love westerns? How about readers on your gift list? Well, pardners, you're in luck, because we have some wonderful selections to offer for .99 and FREE!

If you are looking for some fantastic bargains, we have them right here! Today we're featuring SUNDOWN PRESS, and do we have some great reading ahead for you--and it can be yours right now for .99!

First up is one of our latest collections of 14 exciting western short stories, BEST OF THE WEST!


Grab a cup of coffee and settle down into your easy chair to ride the range with some of the most exciting tales of the Old West you’ll find anywhere! This collection is called BEST OF THE WEST for a very good reason—IT IS!

These fourteen stories will have you standing beside lawmen and outlaws as the bullets fly, saddling up some of the best horseflesh to be found West of the Mississippi, and wagering your livelihood on the turn of a card. Tales that include savvy swindles, gunfights, loves lost (and found!), the making of an outlaw and the secret protection of a president will draw you in and hang on tight.

This anthology is bustin’ with acclaimed Western authors such as James Reasoner, Livia J. Washburn, Jackson Lowry, Kit Prate, Charlie Steel, Richard Prosch, Big Jim Williams, Cheryl Pierson, J.L. Guin, Clay More, and David Amendola.

What are you waitin’ for, pardner? You’re burnin’ daylight! Happy trails!

Are you a Civil War buff? Sean Gabhann's HARPER'S DONELSON is one of the most realistic accounts of those times you will ever read, and his research is impeccable. Best of all? Right now, this exciting book can be yours for only .99!


The first book of this Civil War trilogy begins in the winter of 1862, as the nation is being ripped apart, with both Federals and Rebels seeing no end in sight and hoping for victory. Lieutenant James Harper, a junior officer in the Union army, aspires to command a company—but faces his dismal future at the hands of an officer who will vindictively do whatever he must to keep Harper at the bottom of the heap.

Katie Malloy, a young girl who has been sold by her father to the wily owner of a whorehouse, has settled into her new life as a saloon-girl—for the time being. She’s got big plans to get herself out of this predicament, and vows one day she’ll be more than the soldiers’ whore.

Corporal Gustav Magnusson, a young Quaker in Harper’s company, butts heads with Harper from the very beginning.

But capture by the enemy forces them to work together to protect their men from sadistic Rebel Captain Bell—who wants nothing more than to see his Yankee prisoners dead. Will General Grant’s campaign against Fort Donelson open the door for an ex-Federal Marshal, a Quaker farmer, and a soiled dove from Iowa to make their mark in the world—if they live through it? Three lives intertwine against the backdrop of the battle which made Ulysses S. Grant’s reputation—a living hell where everything familiar fades, and the only thing that matters is surviving—however they can.

But wait, there's more! We've got two free books to feature today, too!

SOUTH OF RISING SUN by J.D. McCall is a wonderful western story that you will not want to miss--and you can't beat FREE!


U.S. Marshal Alistair Taggart has spent almost seven years protecting the citizens of Bleeding Kansas from the lawlessness surrounding its push to achieve statehood. Now, Kansas has entered the Union as a free state, but the violence threatens to continue when the Civil War erupts only three months later. During one of Taggart’s regular visits to the former Kansas territorial capitol of Lecompton, local rancher James Harper enlists the marshal’s help to catch the cattle rustlers intent on stealing his livelihood. But Kansas is just beginning its reign as the wildest state in the Union, and Taggart must also deal with Jayhawkers, highwaymen, unpredictable weather, and those hell-bent on revenge. Taggart finds his job further complicated by a runaway slave and animals gone delinquent, along with his own concerns that age may finally be catching up with him. Solving the case will prove harder than Taggart ever imagined, and its resolution will cost him dearly. Sometimes, justice only comes with a price…

Our last feature of the day is THE OUTLAW BILLY STARBUCK by Kit Prate. What a storyteller Kit is! You won't want to miss this tale of hers! And right now, you can get it FREE!


When Will Simpson decides to turn outlaw, he does it up right! Robbing trains will bring him the fame and wealth he craves—and will also ensure he’ll end up with the girl he loves. But his first train robbery goes awry and he makes a lifelong enemy of payroll guard Kyle Lassiter, who loses his arm in the heist. THE OUTLAW, BILLY STARBUCK, as Will calls himself now, turns his attention to the stage lines and the payrolls they carry. But he’s met his match with expert stagecoach driver Simon Tyree, who is determined to deliver the payroll—along with some unexpected passengers—to safety, come hell or high water. In a twist of fate, Billy Starbuck realizes he must join with Tyree to keep himself and the woman he loves alive when his old nemesis forces him to show his hand. But will his decision come too late? When vengeance comes calling, will Simon Tyree protect THE OUTLAW, BILLY STARBUCK…

Don't forget, we have tons of great bargains available during our Pre-Black Friday sale!

PRE- BLACK FRIDAY SALE AND GIVEAWAY FROM PRP! DAY 2!

Hi everyone! We're back for DAY 2 of our wonderful PRP Pre-Black Friday Sale and Giveaway, and we are so excited! Today we are featuring our FIRE STAR PRESS and PRAYERS AND PROMISES imprints, with more super stories than you can shake a stick at!

Our first feature deal of the day is one of our recent boxed sets from FIRE STAR PRESS based on music! This was such a fun collection to put together and very different. Each story deals with a theme from a different decade, with the music of the time woven throughout. It's on sale for only .99!




Some song titles evoke memories not only of the song, but also of the time…the era…the place. They call for stories all their own, and at Fire Star Press they’ve inspired a new boxed set!

From the 1940’s through the 1980’s, each decade is represented by a song that was made powerhouse-popular during the time. In Tanya Hanson’s “NEARBY”, two lonely people in war-time wish for “Someone to Watch Over Me”—but they may be surprised to know who that “someone” is.

Racial tension divides a small town in LOVE AND PREJUDICE by B.J. Betts when two young people wonder what could happen “If I Loved You”…

Can true love happen in “This Magic Moment” when two young lovers fall for one another at CRAZY HORSE HIGH by Sara Swann-Barnard?

Ella M. Kaye’s A MELODY IN THE DARK turns near-tragedy into something “Wonderful Tonight” for a young Pittsburgh couple.

In C.A. Jamison’s A DANCE TO REMEMBER, a burning-hot one night stand with The Phantom, a male stripper, leaves a beautiful fashion designer with one thought—“I’m On Fire”…

Pull up a chair and settle in for five music-inspired love stories through the decades that will take you down a breathless walk through memory lane…

STALKING HER DREAMS is the first in a contemporary series by Agnes Alexander, featuring a middle-aged hero and heroine. This story will have you on the edge of your seat, and hoping for a happy ending! This is one story you will be staying up late to finish once you start it! Available now at a special price of only .99!


At a book signing, Heather Masterson, a successful mystery author, comes face-to-face with a successful rancher who bears the name of one of her fictional characters. The “real” Alex Hargrove is fascinated by Heather, and she is just as captivated by him.

They both believe that they are fated for one another as their feelings evolve quickly, and a simple friendship becomes love in a short period of time.

But in a diabolical mystery plot of her own, Rachelle Albright, an unstable alcoholic fan of Heather’s, has a different idea of the way this story should come to a close. She fancies herself in love with the fictional Alex—and the only way to have him for herself is to rid the world of Heather.

A storybook ending doesn’t seem possible for Heather as Rachelle enlists the aid of a man from the past who’s out to settle the score with Alex. How can there be a happy-ever-after ending for Heather when someone is STALKING HER DREAMS…

For another wonderful story, jump over and snap up Sarah J. McNeal's CAST AWAY HEART, available now FREE!


After her fiancé humiliates her and breaks her heart on what was to be their wedding day, Ella Dubois has vowed never to open her heart again. Nickoli Vesa, a Romanian pianist, has loved Ella for years, but she sees him only as her best friend. How can a deserted piano heal a shattered spirit and inspire it to sing again?

Our last featured offering today is from our PRAYERS AND PROMISES imprint, a story of hope, SHATTERED VOWS by Linda LaRoque. It's FREE right now, so be sure to snap it up!



Annie and Stuart Rayburn have loved each other since high school. Their life is idyllic until their baby dies of SIDS, and Annie falls into a deep depression. Months of therapy help her recover, and they look forward to another child sometime in their future.

Despite his own grief Stuart tries to comfort Annie, yet when he reaches for her in the night, his advances are rebuffed. In a moment of weakness, he turns to another woman. Stu learns his night of infidelity produced a baby girl. The mother died in a car crash, and her will gives Stu custody.

Stu can’t deny the child is his, and he’s determined to raise her. He begs Annie’s forgiveness. Hurt and angry, Annie must face her demons, decide if she can forgive Stu, and love the innocent child, or divorce him and move on without the only man she’s likely to love.
