Announcement From Desert Palm Press
It with great excitement we announce a new author to Desert Palm Press - Jazzy Mitchel. She is a storyteller in many forms: writer, educator, editor, attorney—she tells stories, breaking down complex ideas in understandable, interesting ways. She taught English in the public schools of her hometown for a decade, giving back to the system that had helped her so much. During that time she trained and encouraged countless students to write poetry and explore their artistic sides. She likes to recount how law school drove the artist out of her, but over time her artistic instincts reasserted themselves. Besides writing, Jazzy teaches real estate law, writes fanfiction as Jazwriter, edits for other fledgling writers, and practices law.
Jazzy loves to travel, spend time with her wife and children, play with her dogs, and capture the essence of life's journey in all its wonderful forms.
Jazzy's first novel with us is as yet untitled and will be published in September 2016.

The Orion Spur Part 1: Family Business by Harpy & HkdonXetG [Original-SciFi/Alt/Complete]
In The Orion Spur, Part I : Family Business , Kikola ap Karthen is a young woman of privilege whose future has been planned for her from the day she was born by The Kalenth Hegemony, a society with strict social boundaries.
Graduating from the Hegemony's Elit Military Academy, Kikola is set to fulfil her destiny with a single-mindedness of purpose. That is, until she meets Tehvay, a slave, and suddenly everything she has been taught is turned upside down.
The two women, from opposite ends of The Hegemony's strict social caste system, find common ground that blossoms into friendship and eventually into so much more. But their feelings for each other will force Kikola to risk everything – her position, her family, her destiny – for a chance at happiness and a life of her own choosing with the woman she loves.
