Brynne Ropert and Portland Dolish have been best friends since being paired as roommates in college. Seven years later they are now twenty-five, married, and living in Maine–– but the two women couldn’t be more different. Brynne finds fulfillment in her life as a wife, mother and owner of a small caf√© and bookshop, but is struggling to expand her family. Portland is still coping with her mother’s death during her childhood, and her marriage is unraveling before her eyes. Portland envies her friend’s seemingly stable and easy life while Brynne doesn’t understand the growing distance between them and cannot begin to guess what secret Portland is hiding about her husband and crumbling marriage. While one woman feels shut out, the other enters into a web of lies to protect herself. 
A Questionable Friendship explores what really makes someone a true friend, a support system, a sister. How much trust goes into a friendship and when is being a friend not enough? Brynne and Portland’s story will attempt to answer those questions, and show that happily ever after isn’t in the cards for everyone.

March has really evolved as a writer.  With each new book her voice because so much more defined, polished. A QUESTIONABLE FRIENDSHIP is one of her best books to date.  I love that March does not fear difficult topics.  She takes these topics on head first and creates a wonderful backdrop for her story. She seems to find a way to make you feel connected to the characters; to their struggles and to their joys.  A QUESTIONABLE FRIENDSHIP is an emotional read, but one that causes you to become retrospective about your own friendships and relationships. 4 stars

Paving Your Own Way

In 2009, I made the decision to spend a few hundred dollars and invest my time in creating a book blog, Chick Lit Plus. Two months after launching the site and dedicating countless hours to learning how to run a blog, reading and reviewing books, and making a social media presence, I was approached by Jackie Collins’ publicist and ask to review her books, plus phone interview Jackie. That was one of the first of many highlights from starting Chick Lit Plus, and my life has really changed with that one small decision of creating something that I was truly interested in.
After starting Chick Lit Plus, I got serious on writing my first novel, and published Destined to Fail in 2011. At the same time, I bought rights to a LLC and created an independent publishing company, Marching Ink. From there, Marching Ink has gone on to publish six titles, three of my own and three from other authors.
Around that same time, I decided to venture out further, and created CLP Blog Tours, a blog tour company mainly marketed towards independent authors looking for more promotional services to get the word out about their book. At the time I started there wasn’t a lot of companies yet and really nothing for indie authors, and the company took off faster than I expected and is still going strong today.
Like I said, my life has changed a lot since 2009 and starting a small and simple book blog. I learned that paving my own way and being my own boss is what I love to do, especially when I get to work in an industry that I care about so much. Books are my thing, plain and simple. I love reading, I love working with authors, and I love helping authors promote their work. It’s a satisfying feeling and one that I truly cherish.
Do you have something you love doing, a field that you are particularly interested in? Is there a way that you can connect with your passion? Think hard, do some research online, and open your mind. I’ve always wanted to be an author. I did not think when I graduated high school in 2005 that blogging would open me up to that world – heck, I really didn’t think that in 2009. But times are changing. People are carving their own paths by creating blogs, YouTube channels, Instagram accounts. Be smart, take your time, and work hard. If it’s truly your passion, you’ll take it seriously and strive hard to make your achievements. Good luck!
