Cactus Rain Publishing publishes debut novel

Cactus Rain Publishing is a boutique publishing company in central Arizona, USA. Its mission is to bring the world to readers -- one book at a time -- by publishing the finest English language novels by authors from around the world. The writers write in their native language; British English, Colonial English, and American English.

Nadine Laman, owner of Cactus Rain, says, "We heavily vet our books and work closely with our authors to cultivate their voice and story into a uniquely enjoyable reading experience."

The Doctor, The Plutocrat, and The Mendacious Minister, by Glyn Pope (France) is the debut novel for Cactus Rain.

Doctor Latymer arrives on a council estate in Leicester, England, full of hope and the innocence of youth. He quickly becomes the local miracle worker. But without a grasp of the realities of life, he sets out to right injustices that he doesn't fully understand. In the process, he unravels the delicate balance between rich and poor, and the struggling post-WWII British economy still reliant on rationing and the black market.

Cactus Rain's books are perfect for readers who want novels that bring new reading experiences.

The Doctor, The Plutocrat, and The Mendacious Minister goes on sale November 1, 2010. Order your copy direct from the publisher,


  1. I think the whole idea of these novels being written in British, Colonial and American English is a wonderful idea. So easy I believe for a publisher just to bow to the biggest audience, American. Collectors, lovers of language, should pre-order all three.

  2. Well, thank you! I'm not one to do over what has been done before. Besides, I've read mss where the non-American tried to write American. It simply isn't believable.

    Pre-order would be wonderful, but I'm not set up to carry that information on my books. Order Doc on Monday, my time zone. It is discounted on the Cactus Rain Website (link is on the sidebar on the left).

    It isn't everyday you can purchase the very first book from a publishing company. Plus, it is a good read.

  3. Someone asked what "vet" means. It is used quite commonly in the publishing industry.

    — vb , vets , vetting , vetted
    2. chiefly ( Brit ) ( tr ) See also positive vetting to make a prior examination and critical appraisal of (a person, document, scheme, etc): the candidates were well vetted

  4. congrats on bringing the first one to completion. i know you put a lot of hard work in this. happy for you.

  5. Hello, Michelle! Thank you for the kind wishes.
