Meet Dellani Oakes
Dellani Oakes doesn't claim to be an expert on anything, but she has a lot of experience making something out of nothing. Thrown into the world of publishing three years ago, she found that trying to promote her work was the hardest part of being an author. Since then, she's branched out, lost her inhibitions and faced the publishing world head on.
Dellani once told her publisher that she had enough books, finished & unfinished, to keep him busy for the next 10 years. He didn't believe her, but he should have. Two novels, Indian Summer and Lone Wolf are published by Second Wind Publishing, but she has 42 finished romance novels and at least that many (she won't count them) that are still in the works.
One of the 42, a romantic suspense, The Ninja Tattoo, came out September 24th from Tirgearr Publishing. On December 4th, Dellani's contemporary romance, Dulcet, will debut also at Tirgearr Publishing.
The sequel to Lone Wolf, Shakazhan, is coming soon from Second Wind.
Dellani Oakes is a former A.P. English teacher, photo-journalist. She's an avid reader & reviews the work of others. She hosts two shows for the Red River Radio Network – Dellani's Tea Time the second Monday of each month, @ 4:00 PM Eastern and What's Write for Me, every fourth Wednesday @ 3:00 PM Eastern on Blog Talk Radio.
