Welcome to Thunder Ridge Publishing. My name is Cyn Taylor. I am a TRP author and the CCO (Chief Content Officer) for the company. TRP is a faith-based, female owned, staffed and operated entity with a main goal of assisting unknown and new writers achieve their dream of becoming published authors. We have freelance editors and graphic designers on staff to help each individual author as needed. Our authors are free to design their own covers and edit their own books, or use the expertise of those who are aligned with TRP. Authors and TRP affiliates are free to work out their own charges and payment arrangements with these authors and TRP never takes a cut.
TRP will assist you as much or as little as you want in getting your book to Amazon, with no up-front fee. When your TRP published book sells on Amazon, TRP will retain the first $100 in net earnings to repay our staff for cover design/uploading the book to Amazon for you. You retain 50% of all net earnings after that first $100. You will retain all rights to your book/books and may request TRP remove them from Amazon should a better opportunity come along for you as an author. For full details on publishing with TRP and contract specifics contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

This is my first blog since March when Covid-19 hit and I gave away a ton of free books. It made me very happy that so many of you took advantage of the freebies while a lot of us were shut-ins.
If your job required that you work through that time, and still, I appreciate your sacrifice, no matter what field you are working in.
