One door closes and another one opens…

Today is a very bittersweet day for me. Musa Publishing will be closing their doors today. I am eternally grateful for everything they have done for me over the past 3 1/2 years. I am the author I am today because these incredible people believed in me and my work. I cannot forget to thank Kathy Calore Teel who was the Euterpe (YA) head editor at the time I submitted First Frost to Musa Publishing. So from the bottom of my heart thank you for seeing the magic and whimsy that so many others didn’t see at the time. And of course thank you to Celina Summers, Jeanne De Vita, Kerry Mand, Kelly Shorten, and Dominique Eastwick for all of their hard work and sacrifice in order to make Musa Publishing a success (because even though they are closing their doors they are doing it with grace and with their heads held high). So thank you so much for everything.

This is how I’m feeling right about now.

While I am heartbroken about Musa Publishing, I can’t help but be excited about the next chapter that’s opened up right now. My dear friends at Indie Gypsy have graciously accepted the Frost Series. So worry not, Bianca Frost fans, you will get to see what trouble she gets into next. They will release First Frost, Glass Frost and (the long awaited) Shattered Frost. Release dates, covers and other exciting news will be coming soon.

As one door closes another door opens…here’s to the next chapter for everyone. Looking forward to what the future will bring. 😉

Musa Publishing is Closing Their Doors….

So…it’s with a heavy heart that I have to announce that my publisher Musa Publishing (and the incredible, amazing, dedicated, talented people that I had the honor and privilege alongside of) will be closing their doors. I am devastated by this bit of news because I loved every moment I worked with them, Kelly Shorten, Kerry Mand, Jeanne De Vita, Dominique Eastwick, Celina Summers and every author that met through them. I know we’ll all be okay but I will miss working with you. Sigh. I learned so much about writing, editing and promotion with Musa Publishing and I know that I will carry these lessons with me forever. With that having been said, please go to the Musa website http://www.musapublishing.com  and check out the sale they are having. All of their books have been marked down to 80% off please help Musa go out with a BANG!

There are Musa authors that have been nominated for awards. Please show your support one last time and VOTE for their books!!
