We have the pleasure today in sharing the launch of a new publishing house, 5 Prince Publishing and Books, LLC. Congratulations Bernadette Marie!
To celebrate the first book release, The Executive's Decision, the publisher will draw a winner from posted comments to receive a signed copy.
Join me now in welcoming 5 Prince Publishing and Bernadette Marie!!!!
The Executive’s Decision will be released in March 20, 2011. This is the first book being published by 5 Prince Publishing and Books, LLC and is book one in a series of at least five. (3-20-11 will also be my 18th wedding anniversary!)
I have been writing for as long as I can remember. I started my first book at the age of thirteen. I submitted it at the age of sixteen and continued to try an perfect it for the next twenty-two years. In June of 2007 I picked up a Nora Roberts book to read on the treadmill at the gym (I’d given up the pleasure of reading so that I could write, what a mistake!) and I knew I wasn’t writing where my heart was. I finished that book I’d been writing, giving it an ending I could feel good about, and shelved it. Since June of 2007 I have penned sixteen books.
In late 2009 I received my first publishing contract for my The Matchmaker Trilogy, available from Snowy Creek Books.
In 2011 I opened my own publishing house, 5 Prince Publishing and Books, LLC. I found very quickly that my creative side does not play well with others. I want my hand in all aspects of the creative process and the only way to do that was to be the “boss” of the project from start to finish.
I have the most fabulous editors so I know that the quality of my books will be first rate all the way.
When I am not writing, which is rare that I’m not, I am focused on my family. I have been married for almost eighteen years and we have five wonderful little boys ranging in age from 12-6. In October 2010 I also received my Black Belt in Tang Soo Do/Tae Kwan Do. Being a Martial Artist has taught me so many great things about discipline which I have carried over into my writing career. (As well as a great plot for a book you will be seeing in the near future.)
My website is www.bernadettemarie.com. I have an online bookstore opening up where we will sell my books (and the books of others). We will also offer a Reader Review Panel where authors can have their books reviewed by everyday Readers and not just Literary Reviewers. This site is http://www.5princebooks.com/. I can also be found on Facebook under Bernadette Marie.
I am a member of the Romance Writers of America (RWA), Colorado Romance Writers (CRW), and the Colorado Fiction Writers.
THE EXECUTIVE’S DECISION:
Regan Keller fell in love with a wealthy and powerful man once. He was her boss. When that turbulent relationship ended, she swore she’d never again date someone she worked with. That was before she literally fell into her new boss’s lap.
Zachary Benson is a successful man running an empire and used to getting what he wants in the boardroom and outside of it. He is determined to convince Regan that even though he is her boss they can share a life together.
However, when Regan’s past threatens Zach’s business he will have to make an executive decision whether to choose his business or fight for the woman he loves.
