Welcome to Deadly Press
It started with an idea...
Take two traditionally published authors with book rights that have reverted to them. They want to keep the books out there, available to new readers.
The two authors have been working together for years. They met via Crime Writers of Canada when Melodie Campbell was Executive Director and Alison Bruce was Publications Manager. Then Melodie retired from CWC (but not really retired because she continues to teach novel writing) and Alison became Executive Director of CWC (eventually). But they still worked together as part of Deadly Dames.
Under the circumstances, the idea was obvious: start their own publishing company. Deadly Dames was taken so Alison suggested Deadly Press* and Melodie agreed.
The rest is...or will be...history.
It isn't easy being a female barkeep in the final frontier...especially when you’re also a spy!
Disguised as a boy, Marly joins a handsome Texas Ranger in the hunt for a con man and they must bring the fugitive to justice...right after finding a murderer.
*Note: Alison also was the first one to suggest Deadly Dames. Two of her books are Deadly Legacy and Deadly Season. Her children are lucky one of them isn't named Deadly Bruce-Ireland.
