Prairie Rose Publications

Publisher info

PRAIRIE ROSE PUBLICATIONS (PRP), a publishing company devoted to publishing westerns and western romances written by women.
PRAIRIE ROSE PUBLICATIONS was opened in August, 2013, by LIVIA J. WASHBURN and CHERYL PIERSON, two authors who saw a need for such an imprint. Usually, when people think “westerns” they think of male authors and male readers—but that’s not true in today’s world. Many women are just as interested in reading—and writing—westerns as their male counterparts; and of course, western romance has always been popular among the ladies!

Anthologies have stories by the following authors:
Linda Broday
Livia J. Washburn
Cheryl Pierson
Sarah J. McNeal
Tanya Hanson
Jacquie Rogers
Tracy Garrett
Phyliss Miranda
Kathleen Rice Adams
