Big news on a couple of fantasy fronts from DCP!
Destiny Never Sleeps: Quest of the Two Queens
Desert Coyote Productions is proud to announce that you can look forward to the publication of Bernadette Thompson Martin and Jeannie Faulkner Barber's Destiny Never Sleeps: Quest of the Two Queens in October. The files have gone to the printer, proofs should be forthcoming, and by the first week of October we should be live! As a taste, check out the cover to the left, and the cover blurb below!
Four aging seniors set sail from Miami, but the intended destination will never be reached as they naively enter perilous waters. Deep within the Devil's Triangle, terror lies in wait, and an inconceivable nightmare is about to begin.
A mysterious force transports Kathleen Tate (Kat) and three lifelong companions through an ancient portal. Upon emergence, they are delighted to discover that their youth has been miraculously restored.
This strange parallel realm is beautiful, magical ... and deadly. Two Queens -- one good, one evil -- will soon meet on a bloody battlefield. The quest for earthly domination, or salvation, is about to commence.
Creatures of myth and legend, of land, air, and sea, unite to battle a vile malignancy. An act of valor is needed to reverse the portal and allow the foursome to return home. However, the task comes at an unbearable cost. Many lives now rest in the fateful hands of Destiny.
Destiny Never Sleeps: Quest of the Two Queens will be available in early October.
Phantom Squadron gets an Official Site
Desert Coyote Productions is proud to announce the opening of an official Phantom Squadron website, devoted solely to Don A. Martinez's experimental contemporary fantasy series. It's going to be a constant work in progress, but right now interested surfers can check out character profiles of the characters from both time periods the series covers (CIBO #A13 and the Insurgency), some multimedia content including the novel trailers and some artwork, a direct link to the Hidden-In-Plain-Sight tumblr feed, and links to purchase copies of the books. More will be forthcoming, as more materials are gathered and created for the site. Keep an eye on the site for a DCP-exclusive preview of the next Phantom Squadron novel, Infernal Eighteen!

The next title coming from Desert Coyote Productions is Taste of Fire, the second novel by Jeannie Faulkner Barber. The story's just as awesome as this cover ... just check out this description!
Incessantly teased by childhood peers over an uncharacteristic scar from a fiery car crash, spirited Terri Neal finds comfort in her father's explanation: "The flames licked your arm, but when it tasted you, it knew you were special, and the fire was afraid." Her father's shadowy death in a mysterious building fire prompts Terri to develop into a dedicated, top-notch firefighter.
In a deadly house fire, she sees her father's image through the flickering inferno. He instructs the iron-willed young woman to seek out her biological parents. However, this task will be far from mundane as it propels Terri down a path of intrigue, romance, and peril. In the innocent shadows of daylight, a lethal stalker and kidnapper lurks.
Death approaches ... and someone will soon succumb to the insatiable TASTE OF FIRE!
Taste of Fire is coming near the end of March-beginning of April from DCP! Keep an eye out!
