We are rapidly
Muse Publishing, Inc's
Debut here in the intriguing world of
I am an author, and even though I have
thirteen contracts so far with
five released and another about to be released
next week, I sometimes wonder about that claim...okay
Nudge is kicking me in my
lack of ego, but still...
I have learned a great deal in this
last year. I have learned the true meaning of
grace under fire.
We at Muse are blessed to have
Lea Hovris Schizas and Litsa Kamateros woman-ing the
helm of all Muse is and will become.
We newbies make mistakes that MUST drive these two beautiful women
up one wall, scrabbling across the ceiling and
down the other, yet their
willingness to guide us through the
uncharted waters tell us we are more than just a means towards hopefully an ever mounting stack
of dollar signs.
I am a newbie...sort of. I am definitely a newbie to this end of writing. Since I'm almost
sixty...and yes I am a woman who admits her age...I have been writing a lonnngggg time. I think I wrote my first little thing back when I was little more than
five. Don't remember what it was except I know it starred the mouse I heard scratching and clicking inside our country
house's walls. (We're not going to talk about the one that waited until I was sitting on the can. With my drawers down around my ankles, the
little demon began running across the bathroom tiles, his clicking reverberating off the ceramic of the tiles. I got the hell outta there so fast I actually did a header down the steps when my feet got all tangled up in my
dropped drawers...which probably explains much.)
Many years later another mouse, this one living inside
my stove, sort of affectionately named
Mortimer, Mort for short, seemed to know when I wanted to place pot on stove. At that exact moment Mort would stick his head up through the rings and twitch his whiskers quite energetically. Naturally I dropped the pot, ran for all I was worth and prayed Mort would not give chase. He never did.
Back to the topic at hand. When you admire someone, deservedly so, the way we
admire and love these two women, there isn't anything you wouldn't do to
spread word of their
beacon to the world at large.
To do this I began doing what began as Cover Blogs, but thanks to the creative ingenuity of
Ginger Simpson has become Stationary Trailers. I get the rare opportunity to create my own brand of I guess,
magic. My goal is to entice my blog readers to go to the
Muse Bookstore and further check out my brother and sister authors.
I don't have a clue if what I do translates into bigger sales.
I hope, because I love doing them. It almost feels like I am giving back to
Muse for all
Muse has given to me.
Fanciful of me, I know, but that really is
how I feel.
My daughter, herself a Muse author of repute, chose having her own
BTR show to further
spread the news of Muse. She has had
New York Times Best Seller's,
Cover Artists who are never willing to sit on their accumulated laurels so go back to
school and learn, learn, learn.
She has had editors...the people who help us hone, tighten, polish and inject
into our masterpieces, yet are so
down-to-earth and giving, we, their authors, never feel like they are stripping us of our creative identities. (I have heard
horror stories about editors and actually have one of my own from eleven years ago...but
Muse gives us the
cream of the editing crop...
Gods and Goddesses we are grateful to have guiding us through the honing process.)
Kat has had literary agents on her show...nothing to
sneeze at...and in the future she has a
Pulitzer Prize winning author lined up as well.
is about to celebrate it's
first year...yes we are small, sorta...but we have grown by such
leaps and bounds it is impossible these days to keep all the names of my
Muse family, all
gods and goddesses in my head.
There are those still predicting Muse
will not succeed...let me be the first to assure them...we're already
we've only just begun.
Imagine what news of our
giant steps up that
publishing ladder I will have to share with you on September 10, 2012 when we
celebrate our two year commemoration of our debut?
Muse rocks the world, and the world is going to feel more than tremors in the months, years and decades ahead.
Muse is busy
~Building the Team to Achieve the Dream~
For those that doubt...
our dream is already out there spreading like a
wild fire. All you have to do is lift your head and
hear our steadily rising voices.
Lea and Litsa on creating and yes, woman-ing the
