Keelee Marshall knew all about loss. The man she loved beyond reason had disappeared on the battlefields of Afghanistan even though he now lived three buildings over...on the same ranch. She couldn't forget their brief nights of passion—but Adam had. Keelee would have to fight for Adam's love, because he was hell-bent on pushing her into the arms of a man she didn’t want and a future devoid of the one thing she needed most. Adam.
For Adam and Keelee a life together may never happen, unless love can trump the cards fate has dealt. She'd go all in, but only if the man holding the cards was her Guardian.

Every year I like to look at the progress each TRP author has made and some of them are surprised at how much they've written, progressed and produced.
Others look at this and use it as a motivator to keep going. It's my no means meant to compare authors or make them feel inadequate. But sometimes when you see what is possible it helps with your own goals.
However, I myself sometimes can't help but feel frustrated at my word count so I'm fully prepared to throw a fit, then get over it and make new goals for next year (2016).

What if you had everything you wanted within your grasp, but let it go?
Isabel Fields stands on the brink of a new life. She has the Dominant/submissive relationship she craves with the man she loves, but her past continues to haunt her.
With Isabel, Sebastian York can release the sexual Dominant he’d always tempered. He doesn’t intend to let her go, even when she bolts in panic. Together, both could experience the freedom to explore their relationship and sides of themselves previously stifled.
Their love is tested when issues of trust rising from Izzy’s past marriage and her damaged heart take their toll. They may have fallen in love, but that doesn’t guarantee it will be forever more.
Izzy and Seb have two choices: grow stronger together or be pulled apart by the past.

Miserable and dejected in her marriage, Isabel Fields encounters a stranger in a bar promising an opportunity to change her life. Nonetheless, she must make a decision she thought was reserved for other women.
Sexual dominant, Sebastian York, specializes in igniting passion in his lovers, but women always come and go, and he’s never had a woman to call his own.
Leading Izzy, a natural submissive, on a journey of sexual awakening, their casual arrangement soon grows too confining. Seb satisfies everything Izzy has craved and she instinctively bows to his dominant personality, fulfilling his every desire.
Their casual arrangement ignites Isabel’s long-buried passion and touches her heart, but Izzy struggles with the emotional turmoil that plagues her soul.
Sacrifices will have to be made by both, putting their love to the test. Izzy stands to lose the marriage she dedicated years of her life to, but has a chance to gain a relationship she's always longed for. All depends on whether Sebastian proves to be the love of Izzy’s life, or leaves her wanting more…
But, I feel the day is close when I don't have to give away pieces of my soul and hand them to another person to market as theirs.
I get paid well, but I can not honestly recommend selling your work without recognition. Even though I write for others, I have my own stories to tell. My clients love my stories, but I give my all to the ones of interest for me--my own that are not popular or what's on the marketable list this week. But this is neither here nor there.
I do what I do to get my authors stories out there. And it feels exactly like the picture above. There I am climbing up, determined to "make it". Carrying my author puppies with me. All in it together. And I feel like we're almost "there".
But where is "here"?
Currently I am a writer full time and a publisher full time. On some days I'm a writer. Others a publisher. Everyday I'm an author's advocate. I love helping authors. When I see an author down in the dumps, confused or worried I can't help but tell them it's okay. I've been where you've been and here is where you're at, where you're going and what you have to do.
I too can feel a little lost or beaten up going down this path. Do I know this place? Have I been here before?
My path, the author's path, the publisher's path is an uphill climb in which you can not see the top. Scratch that--it's a sheer cliff and we're all repelling. Me and my posse are so bad ass we're doing it free style. Just like the picture.
I think I can see the top, but I'll have to let you know when I get "there". So far the challenge has been difficult, but I know this: those author puppies on my back have kept me going. I love you guys!
What this means? Every author needs a group. People that understand. Writing is a lone sport. Publishing that work is not. If you are trying to publish alone that's where you get in trouble. I'm not talking about running out and getting a publisher, agent or whatever. I'm talking about crit partners, support groups, writer's covens. Even self-published writers had a cover artist, an editor, a marketing expert to talk to. Or at least I hope so. Dear god, I hope so.
What I gained in 2015 is insight. The knowledge to know we've a long way to go. Troll River Publications was born in October 2012. But December 24th, 2012 was our publishing debut with Luke's Tale. We've achieved 3 years and still going. Want to give an anniversary present? Write a review for one of our authors! Doesn't matter which platform or book. We take payment in four and five stars!
We have a line up of books coming in 2016. There should be one or two releases every month. As a publisher, I'm hoping readers continue to support our authors.
To the TRP authors I want to give my sincere and humble thank you for believing in me, letting me help you reach your goals and letting me carry your books. The commissioned artwork was for you and inspiration of you. Patricia, Elizabeth, Carol, Kris, J.D., Marilyn, Rachel and the new authors to come in 2016 Madeline Iva and the duo C.M.Moore (yes even you) -- Thank you. Let's have a great New Year!
My efforts are to make this a learning blog where writers can see the flip side of publishing. If you have comments that will improve your experience or have a certain topic you'd like discussed, please contact me through email - HERE.
