Important News about My Books!

Important Update!

Some of you may have heard my publisher, Desert Breeze Press, is closing its doors at the end of June. I wanted to write a short note to let you know what that means.

First of all, Desert Breeze has been great to me. They are handling this closing in the an ethical way. I want to thank the managing editors, Gail and Jennifer. They are a class act. I also want to thank the editors and cover artist who worked there. Everyone worked to make my novels the best they can be. Sometimes these things just happen in the changing publishing world.

What it means for my books is that all of them but A Christmas Promise will be discontinued on all online sites by the end of June. I don’t know the exact date. If you planned to order a book, please do so now. It also means the next novel in the Oberlin Series will not release in November through Desert Breeze. If you want to leave reviews, continue to do so. Those reviews will carry over when the books are rereleased through another publisher.

This is not the end though. Another publisher is picking up my past books and publishing the next two Oberlin Series books. I don’t know the timing or details yet, but I will let you know when as soon as I know.

Thanks for all you support. This news would be devastating if I didn’t have loyal fans like you and if I didn’t know God has this all in His hands.

Christian Fiction Spotlight with Author Tosca Lee

The Progeny

by Tosca Lee

Realm Awards Finalist: Supernatural/Paranormal/Horror/Other

I’m twenty-one years old
and my name doesn’t matter
because it’s about to be erased forever.

When you wake up, you remember nothing. Not your name, or where you were born, or the faces of the people you knew. Just a single warning written to yourself before you forgot it all:

Emily, it’s me. You.

Don’t ask about the last two years… Don’t try to remember and don’t go digging. Your life depends on it. Other lives depend on it.

By the way, Emily isn’t your real name. You died in an accident. You paid extra for that.

You start over in a remote place with a new name, a fresh life. Until the day a stranger tells you you’re being hunted for the sins of a royal ancestor who died centuries before you were born.

You don’t believe him, until they come for you. Now you’re on the run.

Every answer you need lies in a past you chose to erase. The only thing you know for sure is that others are about to die and you need those memories back.

But first, you have to stay alive.
