After all the build up, the fanfare has died down, and I emerge from the confetti-strewn aftermath and look around and think, “What’s next?”
Actually, my inner Martin Sheen is the one asking, and there isn’t any actual confetti. Confetti, like adverbs, tends to be more trouble than it’s worth.
Oh, him? Yes, I have an inner Martin Sheen, please try to control your jealousy.
So, my inner Martin Sheen asks “What’s next?” and I point at my release schedule and I say “ALL THE THINGS!!!!”
All the things.
By all the things, of course I’m talking about Amazon, Shifter’s Dance, United, and Cracked, the four books I have under contract right now to Musa Publishing. Musa is kind of a new kid on the publishing block–Amazon will be released during Musa’s first anniversary celebrations–so I’d like to take a minute to introduce y’all.
I learned of Musa through a writer’s forum called Absolute Write, where Celina Summers, one of the Musa founders, and I are both members. I was impressed by Celina’s descriptions of the company, and the no-nonsense way they navigated their first six months. I decided to submit the first of my Ushers books, Amazon, to Musa for consideration. I was thrilled when Jeanne De Vita, the head of the Calliope imprint, contacted me about acquiring the Ushers series.
You can learn all about Musa’s genesis and the fantastic crew behind the scenes here at Musa’s “About Us” page.
Since contracting the Ushers and then Shifter’s Dance, I’ve started getting to know the rest of the Musa family, and I continue to be impressed not just by the work Musa produces, but the way in which the company works, and I’m thrilled to be a part of their birthday celebration in October with the release of Amazon on October 12.
Check out the bookshelf page for the rest of the release schedule–it’s going to be a very Were-y winter!
Thanks for reading!
