Upcoming Releases and Great Information
We’ve all been busy over the last several months. Between editing and the summer, time has flown. The good news is there are some amazing changes that came down the pipe along with a few new releases.
A New Head for Love Knot Books
It is with great pleasure I announce that M.J. Moores is taking over the reins of Love Knot Books as Managing Editor.
M.J. joined DAOwen Publications four years ago as the SPaG editor. Her keen eye helped us publish extremely clean books with well under the industry standard for errors. In fact, many of the books she helped edit have no errors in them at all. So in June she was offered the Managing Editor position of Love Knot Books and it was accepted.
Not only is M.J. a fantastic asset to the company, but she is also a very talented writer. Take a look at M.J.’s author profile on Goodreads. She also has a new novel coming out called Final Year which will release through Love Knot Books early in 2019.

When Kim Kerr submitted his fantasy manuscript he was very skeptical it would be accepted. But we all fell in love with it from the start. Fast passed with a brooding protagonist and so many twists and turns to keep you on your toes. This story has it all – fantasy, intrigue, mystery, action, and a hero who is far from perfect. Everyone loved it, and after careful editing and days putting our artists through the wringer, this amazing story released to rave reviews.
Current rating on Goodreads is 5 stars!
New from Tumbleweed Books!
Released July 31st, 2018
Q: When trusting your baser instincts threatens to strip your hold on sanity, who do you turn to?
A: A turkey in the woods.
A primal force awakens in Tommy after learning of his mother’s impending death. She’s all right, not in the hospital on life support or anything, but her days are numbered. Returning to Buffalo made all kinds of sense, but Tommy’s efforts to “take care of” his mom face plant when she refuses to let him help around the house. He teeters on the cusp of crashing into old patterns – but this canine has learned a few tricks since leaving for LA.
Tommy engages his writer-brain in passing the time concocting elaborate plots, second-guessing his cousin’s livelihood – certain something more nefarious is brewing. And yet, who is he to point fingers when waking up covered in dirt with no memory becomes a regular “thing.”
Amidst a neurotic, potentially psychotic, break Tommy is forced to face a past ready to plow right into his future.
Reminiscent of Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye, I Animal immerses you in the head space of a Xennial neuroses.
Available through KDP or you can order a print version through your local bookstore by giving them the ISBN 978-1928094432.
Kevin’s books is a little controversial at the start, but quickly brings you into a world of a narrow minded individual who has his eyes opened. Something pulls you through this novel until, at the end, life becomes more of a surprise.

Final Year, a suspense filled romance novel.
Graduation can be killer…
Beth pushes beyond her comfort zone to prove a sociology thesis. She turns a chance meeting with a known player into her own personal experiment on first impressions. Weaving herself into casual meetings with the guy reinforces her assumptions… until she’s no longer the one pursuing him.
Jeremy’s only serious relationship is with his studies as he competes for the coveted post-grad theoretical chemistry spot with Dr. Young. When the campus goes into lockdown and everyone is evacuated to the stadium, his habit of “fun only” friendships turns into a curse.
The only person Jeremy can trust to help him find his misplaced not-so-theoretical chem project is a skittish girl he’s known for ten days.
Beth is forced to weigh her options with a not-so-clear head as two weeks of thesis support risk imploding on a hunch not led by her gut, but her heart.
Final Year – a fast-paced romantic suspense that keeps you guessing at every twist and turn.
