Celebrating Wild Child Publishing's April Releases

Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating some exciting April releases for Wild Child Publishing! There's Action, Paranormal, Mystery, Horror and Romance...truly something for everyone!


The U.S. is ground-zero for a mysterious global pandemic. The disease is highly infectious and kills its victims within two weeks of exposure. It’s neither bacteria nor a virus and all traditional treatment regiments have failed.

Serena Salus, a radical scientist, discovers the organism is an extraterrestrial dust mite brought to earth by a shuttle astronaut.

The government contends it’s a genetically-engineered organism created on earth by enemies of freedom.

Dr. Salus uncovers a vile plan for distributing her experimental antitoxin and finds herself in a deadly confrontation with powerful forces that’ll stop at nothing to control the distribution of her vaccine.



CRYSTAL BIRCH by Jessie A. McPeeke

Katy McPherson has always had a special connection with her husband; ever since they first met in the remote wilds of Alaska, they've been able to glimpse each other's thoughts. Their telepathic connection is a joke between them, one that neither entirely believes in---until the day that Katy's husband, Marty, is shot down over Vietnam. That night, Katy dreams he is alive, so when a fellow Navy pilot delivers the news that Katy's husband is dead, she clings fast to the belief that her psychic connection has shown her that Marty is still alive. Even as she fights to prevent the military from declaring him dead and giving up the search for her missing husband, doubts begin to grow in her mind, leaving her uncertain of whether or not she'll ever see her one true love again.

Marty McPherson wakes up a prisoner under interrogation after a top-secret mission goes horribly wrong. As he suffers through long days of torture, and is eventually sent to work in a foreign country as slave labor, the only thing that keeps Marty sane are the strange, fleeting visions he has of his wife. Having never been sure their psychic connection was real, Marty doesn't know whether to believe Katy is communicating with him, or if he is only seeing what he so desperately wants to see---the beautiful face of his loving and faithful wife, waiting for him to come home.

When Marty is unexpectedly rescued and brought home to Alaska in secrecy, the couple is reunited, but their troubles are only beginning. Disturbing questions plague them about Marty's rescue, and they have every reason to believe someone may want both of them dead. To make things worse, the faithful couple now struggles with understanding the suffering that Marty has gone through during his imprisonment, and are having a hard time coming to grips with the realization that they may, indeed, have a psychic link---one that can do far more than just allow each other to visit their dreams...



LYCANTHROPE: BOOK 2 by Robert Clark

Every full moon people are dying, being ripped apart. Every full moon the body count rises.

Werewolves are a myth. Myths don't kill people, but something is turning Laketun into an abattoir.

Detective Gree doesn't believe in werewolves. Ralph does. Both intend to stop the murders.

The one thing they agree on is the methods they'll use to accomplish their goal: a silver bullet.

And they'll stop the killings any way they can.




Beleaguered divorce attorney Christopher Irvin was far more astute at putting marriages asunder than creating one of his own. So when the specter of death shattered the quiet complacency of his well-ordered world, he began to re-evaluate his life from the ground up.

Chris’ search for meaning leads him directly to his expatriate uncle, Roy Lankster, a decorated member of the famed Tuskegee Airmen. Nearly 50 years earlier, Roy’s P 51 Mustang fighter plane crashed in France in the lead up to WWII’s D-Day invasion. Broken, battered and barely alive, he’s rescued by Marie Renoir, a member of the French Resistance'. Their courage in the face of the ever present danger of capture is only overshadowed by a love between them so powerful that it rivals the first and greatest love in human history. The raging war, synthetic insanity, and the unassigned immoral forces of the universe conspire to tear them apart.

Chris, through Roy’s writings, relives his uncle’s relentless struggle to reunite with his love for the ages, and embarks himself on a personal journey of love and redemption.




In 1943, the Nazi war machine had yet to be blunted. In the midst of war-torn Europe, in the central mountains of Yugoslavia, three friends band together to fight against German invaders. But when Partisan regulars prove to be a threat as well, the friends must question their resolve in the face of a new menace from within their own ranks.

Once settled on flight, the three embark on a journey to save themselves while the Nazi stranglehold tightens on their ever-diminishing homeland.

At the same time, on the fells of southern England, another warrior readies for battle. Reluctant to echo the misery his family has felt on others, Ian Langford knows he must carry the war to the heart of the enemy in order to end it. When his mission carries him over the spring fields of Yugoslavia, he must reassess exactly what he is fighting for, and decide if his actions are to be those of a hero, or just those of a killer.

Balkan Spring is a tale of ordinary men and women caught up in extraordinary times. Sometimes they rise to the occasion, but other times falter and give in to lower natures, only to rise again with the absolution that only courage can bring.

This is a tale of our better selves.



LORD OF THE CATS by Ilan Herman

Tim, a divorced father, never knew his melancholy life could become so dramatic, but then he never thought he’d adopt ten stray cats either. Nor did he believe that cats could talk… until one evening, they did and anointed him Lord of the Cats.

Being Lord to a tribe of cats isn't as easy as it first appears; felines have their own way of thinking, and their antics cause problems in his apartment complex.

Now, Tim must save his flock from a nasty neighbor and an evil landlady who’d like nothing more than to see them dead.

Can Tim stave off a disaster? Or will circumstances spiral out of his control?

  1. Hello, welcome and super congrats to Wild Child Publishing and their authors for these wonderful releases!!

    Wow what a great variety of genres and great covers!

    Authors, please tell us about your book and a little bit about yourself.

    Enjoy your special party and I wish you all success with your books!

  2. I hadn't heard of WCP (which shares the initials of Whiskey Creek Press) before. Checked out the website. I prefer publishers who offer a variety of genres for one stop shopping.

  3. Well, I'm glad you found us, Anne. :) I hope you will stop by and check out our books. :)

  4. Wow, that is a great selection of books. Very nice to see other genres being spotlighted. I love historicals as well as paranormals.

    The book Lord of the Cats looks very interesting, how did you come up with the idea for that one?

    I'm heading over to check out Wild Child Publishing now, thanks for the introduction!

  5. Nice array of books. I am especially interested in the book by John Dargo and my first question is for him.

    How much research did it take you to write this book? And how long did it take you to write it?

    I have a question for all the authors celebrating here today, what drove you all to write?

    Thanks for telling us about these new books, I haven't seen them before!

  6. Love the selection of books. Congratulations to all of auhtors. Good luck with your release!

  7. First let me say what an interesting collection of books. As an avid fan of books of all genre's I was very pleasantly surprised to see books that my father would enjoy, especially when I consider that he introduced me to the world of Westerns and Military/spy thrillers.

    Second, my first set of questions, are for Wild Child Publishing...
    I'm surprised that I haven't heard of you, how long have you been publishing books? Where can I find submission information?

  8. We have been publishing ebooks since 2006. Wild Child has been on the internet, first as a magazine, since 1999.

    Currently, we are closed to submissions until September 15, 2011, due to the length of our editing queue.

  9. By the way, Christiana, I think it's more difficult to find some of these other genres any more, but we are certainly interested in them when they are well-written and entertaining.

  10. What a great collection of books. I love that they are all different genres.

  11. There IS certainly something for everyone. BALKAN SPRING leapt out as WWII is a period in history I find fascinating.

  12. Hi Katie,

    The title Lord of the Cats popped into my head one night while i was watching my cat Cookie (featured on the cover) interact with 2 other cats. they got on well and seemed to be discussing feline issues, so i thought, what if...

  13. Congrats to all authors with new releases. They look like a great bunch of books. I'm convinced my cat can talk. Where did you get the idea for the book Ilan?

  14. CJ -
    First off, let me apologize for not responding sooner, I didn't realize this was a question and answer forum. As the lingo goes today "my bad".
    To answer your question as to the amount of research I did, I would say a moderate amount. I'm a history buff anyway and my father's parents emigrated from southern Europe, so I knew a good deal about the subject matter already. But there were plenty of details to be learned and I tried to be accurate with the historical facts. Then there were many weapons and machines which required some time, but I was able to find most of the information I required on the internet. BTW, the plane on the cover is an actual photo of a working bomber featured in the book. As a matter of fact, this very bomber model flew over the Royal wedding of Kate and Andrew.
    As to how long it took to write, I'd say just over a month. But then there was lots of editing and then waiting and then more editing again. But the actual writing time once I'm immersed in a book is fairly short (though I'm not writing Mitchner length novels!). Thanks for your interest and I hope you enjoy the book!
