Introducing Tule Publishing!

We return home to San Clemente in a couple of days and then I’ll be helping Jake pack up and head to college.  It’s a lot harder to let him go than I realized.  I love all my boys equally but Jake is my first born and I’ve experienced all my firsts as a mother with him. It makes me so proud to see him gearing up to start a new phase in his life, but  I’m going to miss him so much!

For the past few months I’ve been working hard to get a special project off the ground and it’s all finally come together.  I’m happy to share that I’ve started a publishing venture called Tule Publishing.  My goal with Tule is to give authors with great voices the freedom to write the stories they want to write.  We have an excellent line up of books coming your way soon and early feedback on our first imprint, Montana Born Books, is already producing great results.  I hope you’ll agree.  Look at our beautiful covers!  Aren’t they gorgeous?





We kick-off our Montana Born imprint with the Copper Mountain Rodeo series, featuring four original, compelling, sexy and sweet cowboy romance novellas from four of your favorite romance writers: Megan Crane, Lilian Darcy, CJ Carmichael and yours truly, Jane Porter.   In fact, we’ve just launched our Facebook page and have a great contest for readers –  Come LIKE us for a chance win an iPad Mini!

Looking ahead, the last book, and my absolute favorite, in the Brennan Sisters Trilogy, The Good Wife, will hit shelves September 3rd.  I’m beyond thrilled and counting the days.   Kirkus Reviews loved The Good Wife and called it believable, insightful and marked by witty dialogue.  A novel that may inspire readers to examine their own family relationships.”   I can’t wait for you to read it too!


Is it possible to love someone too much?

Always considered the beauty of the family, the youngest Brennan sister, Sarah, remains deeply in love with her husband of ten years. Boone Walker, a professional baseball player, travels almost year-round while Sarah stays home and cares for their two children. Her love for her husband is bottomless—so much so that her sisters say it will end up hurting her.

Living apart most of the time makes life difficult, especially since Sarah often wonders whether Boone is sharing his bed with other women on the road, even though he swears he’s been true to her since his infidelity three years ago. While she wants to be happy and move forward in her life, Sarah constantly fears that Boone will break his promise. Now with Boone facing yet another career change, tension rises between the two, adding more stress to an already turbulent marriage. Emotionally exhausted, Sarah can’t cope with yet another storm. Now, she must either break free from the past and forgive Boone completely, or leave him behind and start anew…

If you haven’t already done it, you can preorder your copy now: Amazon · Barnes & Noble ·IndieBound but I really look forward to hearing what you think.

As usual, my life is busy and things are hectic but its also good.  I am so looking forward to the Fall as there are is exciting things coming your way.  I hope you’ll join me for the fun and enjoy the adventure!  I’m sharing the excitement with another contest for you.  For a chance to win a fun Montana prize box packed full of awesome goodies, leave a comment – tell me if you would enjoy reading stories that feature characters or themes connected to Montana?  Contest ends on Sunday and I’ll announce the winner on Monday!

  34. Congratulations on the new publishing company! I so happy and excited for you on this new venture. I can’t wait to read the books. The covers are absolutely beautiful.

  35. Congrats on your new publishing company sounds so exciting. I love books set in Montana so I am really looking forward to reading them.

  36. I love all the covers, and can’t wait to read all the books about these cowboys from Montana. I’m seeing a cowboy, there’s just just something about him and his friends, they are gentlemen and very loyal and stick to their word…even when he’s busy he drops everything to help me or anyone of his friends. Hope your son has a wonderful time in college, I know the feeling I miss both my kids. Have a nice weekend!

  37. Congratulations on your new Company, Tule and yes I would love to see more stories about Montana and the cowboys or fabulous men of that sexy state. I look forward to reading your Montana Series. Love me a cowboy… 🙂
