We're Celebrating 10 Years!

Happy Birthday, TMP BOOKS!

Today, we celebrate 10 years since launching our hybrid press. In those 10 years, we’ve published 100 books for clients under the TMP imprint, and close to 100 more under imprints of other clients. I’m incredibly proud of all our books, and even more proud of all the authors of those books. 


Authors, thank you for sharing your hard stories so that others know they’re not alone. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and expertise. Thank you for sharing your creative works to encourage others, to help them dream, to help them know of God’s unfailing love for us all. Thank you for using your talents to touch hearts and change lives.

Thank YOU for giving me the opportunity to be part of your journey. I’m honored and humbled that God has called me to this role, and pray that He will continue to use us all for His glory.

Here’s to all of you, and here’s to the future of TMP!

New Release: Almost A Boy

We're excited to announce the release of Alma L. Carr-Jones' first children's book, Almost a Boy. This delightful picture book shares the story of Tyler, a fun-loving toddler who is ready to grow up.




About the Author

Alma L. Carr-Jones, who was born in Memphis, TN to Lula M. Carr, a preacher’s daughter, says that she never thought to live in times such as these, and that she never dreamed that her words would be used to give the masses hope in such times. 

A resident of McKenzie, TN, her life's motto is, "Doing What I Can, While I Can with Care." Alma is a retired educator, and minister's wife. 

Since her retirement as a teacher, writing has become her passion and calling. She says that to breathe is to write. Though she can write whatever is asked of her, she prefers to write words of encouragement for mankind and words of praise and of thanks to the Lord for His love of mankind. 

Alma is a successful author and poetess who has produced 11 books to date, including Excelsior. Alma attributes all that she has accomplished to GOD, and this belief is reflected in the silver medallion she wears around her neck (and in the title of her second book of poetry), which reads, DEI Sub Numine Viget (Under GOD's Spirit, She Flourishes.) 

Through her work as an author/poet, Alma proclaims her love for the Lord, His love for mankind, and her love for her fellowman by shouting from “the tallest mountain in her world.” She infuses hope and encouragement in her work.

Other books by Alma L. Carr-Jones:

The Tallest Mountain Series:

Get Yourself Up (also as audiobook)

Lift Up Your Voice (also as audiobook)

Bear the Good News (also as audiobook)

Renewal of Joy 

Let Your Gifts Shine Forth

Chopping My Row

Excelsior!

We're thrilled to announce the release of Excelsior by Alma L. Carr-Jones. This gorgeous book offers praise and worship poetry, with several poignant story pieces at the end. 

What is poetry to you? 

Author Alma L. Carr-Jones answers this question in her introduction of the book:

“What poetry is to me — soul speaking to soul on various levels or depths. It can be intricately woven with various threads, cords, cables, etc., of the human existence, both abstract and concrete.

Poetry says, “For this one moment in time, my soul touches yours because I, too, understand.”

Poetry lets us know that we are not alone in our deepest feelings, thoughts, and experiences.

Come join us in this journey of poetry and story-telling, a journey of heart touching heart, soul touching soul. As you read and explore, you’ll discover the true essence of this book.

Excelsior!

Available on Amazon in paperback and on Kindle
