New Edition from Shadoe Publishing: FRANKIE by Prudence MacLeod and Crystianna Crawford

???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Carrie flees from the demons of her present, trying to protect the ones she loves.

Frankie hides from the demons of her past, and the memory of loved ones she failed to protect.

A modern day princess thrown to the wolves, Carrie’s only hope is the rancher who had spent the better part of a decade in self imposed, near total, isolation. Frankie’s history of losing those she tries to save haunts her, but this madman threatens her home, her livestock, her sanctuary. She knows she can’t do it alone, has she still got enough support from her oldest friends?

So many authors, so quickly

When you work with an author, negotiating a contract, it can take weeks, months, days, hours, and many minutes of your time so that you, as the publisher, and they, as the writer feel comfortable with all the terms and conditions.  It’s not a slam dunk that we are going to publish their book(s).  There is a lot of work that goes into publishing a book whether you self-publish, go with a publisher, or an in-between like what we do as a publisher.  Since so much goes on behind the scenes it might seem ‘sudden’ when the contracts are finalized and we announce a new author, or many authors.  Some of the time, it’s been months in the making and it all comes together at once.

This last year has been incredible.  Shadoe Publishing has grown phenomenally.  The current authors we had on staff put out a tremendous amount of work for both of us!  As a result, we recently signed quite a few NEW authors; check out our website for information about their upcoming novels and who they are!  Or check out past blogs as we announced them.  We are hoping that the ones we are now negotiating with will be announced soon.  With this all said, it’s obvious we know what we are doing, they are pleased with the work they see, and we are both happy with the end results…good work speaks for itself!

We look forward to helping many new and established authors to achieve their dreams.  That is why we started Shadoe Publishing, to help, to mentor, to create!  We are ALL in this together as we polish their story/manuscript into something a little more special than what they started with.

 I hope those of you who follow along on the Shadoe Publishing journey enjoy what our authors bring to the table and check out the new ones arriving this year!

We are pleased to announce that this year we will be attending the Golden Crown Literary Society event in New Orleans in July, starting on the 22nd and going until the 26th.   Many of our authors will be attending so that they can sign your paperback, meet and greet you, and discuss the many stories that abound.  It’s an exciting time for all and I hope that many of you will attend and stop by the two booths we have reserved.  If you haven’t already, sign up at www.goldencrown.org and tell them Shadoe Publishing sent you!

New Release: HER CALLING from Kaden Shay

We are PROUD TO RELEASE the FIRST book of Kaden Shay’s series:

NEW BEGINNINGS, HER CALLING

Her Calling Cover

In a world on the verge of being told that everything they once thought was merely myth is real, can one teenage girl cope with life changes she never saw coming?

Seventeen year old Kyndle Callahan began her year as a typical high school senior. Well, as typical as a girl can be while living life as a werewolf.  She wasn’t bitten or scratched as most people believe all werewolves are made, no, she was born into the pack that’s always been her extended family. She’s never seen the people she grew up with as the monsters of myth and legend but everything in her life is thrown into a tailspin when her father springs some shocking news on her. Suddenly, reality as a werewolf is much scarier than the stories humans tell. Stunned by the prospect of spending her life bonded to someone she can’t even stand sharing the same space with and devastated at the thought of losing the only love she’s ever known, can Kyndle settle into who and what she is in time to set things right? Can the girl that grew up knowing only pack law stand up, embrace her true calling, and become the woman she was meant to be despite going against everything her family believes?

With the help of her best friend Abbey, Kyndle must navigate a confusing world of wolf culture, teenage drama, and coming out in a group that believes her lifestyle is unnatural.  Follow her journey through pain, heartache, several states, and the fight to be with the girl she loves and take her place in the world.
