One of the decisions we made when we started Dancing Fools Press was that it is very important to us that we help others with a portion of the profits generated by DFP. Because we were unable to find a national or international organization that focused on women's literacy, we've chosen instead to commit to lending 1% of our profits through Kiva to women running their own businesses.

We're happy to announce that we've made our first loan. :)

Once this microloan has been repaid and/or we've reached the threshold to start another loan, the money will be lent to another businesswoman, furthering the goals of Kiva and the women they empower.

Three Dollar Bill Reviews posted a five-out-of-five star review of Brushback by Jamie Scofield today:
If you like complex characters and well plotted mysteries then you can't go wrong with Brushback. I thought it was terrific and can't recommend it highly enough.

[livejournal.com profile] elisa_rolle: What I found really interesting is that the author didn't choose the visual "effect" to build the attraction between Evan and Roman, he/she chose to build an attraction based on little things, like the timber of voices, common interests... chemistry.

The lovely review can be found here.

Dancing Fools Press Announces Premiere Release Brushback By Jamie Scofield

[ July 4, 2009 ]

It couldn't be simpler. All private investigator Evan Austin needed to do was find R.J. Gibson before his eighteenth birthday and the kid would inherit a huge trust fund. Everybody would go home happy: R.J. would be set for life, the mom would appease her guilt, and maybe Evan would finally be able to put a tragic case from his past behind him.

But nothing in life is ever that easy. Adding to the confusion are a young woman whose boyfriend liked to slap her around and the murder of an Assistant U.S. District Attorney, for which one of Evan's former clients is now a suspect. Throw in his growing attraction to R.J.'s guardian, artist Roman Cavanaugh, plus the Mariners having another really bad season, and Evan's got a bit more on his plate than he can handle.

Not that it's ever stopped him before.

Dancing Fools Press is proud to announce the upcoming release of its inaugural title, Brushback, a romantic suspense novel by debut author Jamie Scofield. This delightful first book in the Evan Austin Mystery series will be released simultaneously in multiple non-DRM ebook formats and trade paperback on July 10, 2009. For more information about the novel, and to read the first chapter, please visit dancingfoolspress.com.

In celebration of the July 10th release of Brushback, all readers who subscribe to the publisher's news list by 11:59 p.m. July 9th will be entered to win an ebook or paperback copy of Brushback. Five winners will be chosen at random to receive the ebook and there will be two drawings for an autographed paperback. To join the news list, please send an email to updates-list [at] dancing fools press [dot] com.

Brushback by Jamie Scofield will be available July 10, 2009. Interested retailers who wish to carry the print edition should either contact the publisher directly or obtain it from Ingram Book Company. To carry the ebook editions, please contact the publisher at the address below.
