Submission Status: Open

Welcome to Northern Lake Publishing LLC (NLP), a publisher of digital, text-based content with proven audience demographics. In simpler terms, we publish ebooks in popular genres.

Begun in March 2018, NLP embraces a modern approach to publishing, while not sacrificing quality on the altar of convenience. In a time when thousands of new books are published daily and the market is awash with reader choices, NLP believes story and craft should still take center stage.

NLP Signs Katie Mettner

Katie Mettner writes from a little house in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. She's the author of more than thirty romance novels, all featuring a disabled hero or heroine. Most of her series are set in the Midwest and are a mix of new adult and romantic suspense.

Katie lives with her soulmate, whom she met online at Thanksgiving and married the following April. Together they share their lives with their three children and one very special leopard gecko named Gibbs. Katie has a slight addiction to Twitter and blogging, with a lessening aversion to Pinterest now that she quit trying to make the things she pinned.

NLP Signs Beth Lynne

Beth Lynne is a retired educator who taught in the public schools of New York and New Jersey for nearly thirty years.

Beth currently lives in beautiful sunny Florida with her husband, daughter, and several (okay, many) pets, and spends her time taking long walks with her dogs, swimming, exploring Florida’s amazing restaurants, and catching up on her movie-watching and shopping.

NLP Signs Marci Boudreaux

As a teen, Marci Boudreaux skipped over young adult books and jumped right into reading romance novels. She never left. While Marci has written suspense, paranormal, and erotic fiction, she always finds her way back to sweet contemporary romance because nothing feels better than falling in love with someone new. Since her husband wouldn’t like if she did that in real life, she creates fictional men to admire.

Marci lives in the Midwest with her husband, two teenaged kiddos, and numerous rescue pets. If she had an ounce of will power, Marci would embrace healthy living but until cupcakes and wine are no longer available at the local grocery store, she’ll put that ambition on hold and appease her guilt by reading self-help books and promising to join a gym “soon.”
