It gives me great pleasure to share this news with my dear and faithful readers. I'm thinking we need to cue the drum roll here.
I have recently signed a contract with a publisher for my manuscript, Lost in the Bayou. I am very happy about this event. Today, I want to provide some information about this publisher and what they're currently doing and what they plan to do in the future.
The publisher is Musa Publishing. They are brand new, and they're going to be publishing works in numerous genres. Here is a LINK to their site. When you visit, you'll discover they have ten distinct imprints. Additional good news is that, since they're so new, they're still accepting submissions, so this might be perfect opportunity for you to get published.
I have spoken with several of their editors and staff, and I am very impressed with their professionalism. My editor, Meredith, is a gem and very experienced in the MG and YA genre. During the coming weeks, I'm planning on posting updates on what's going on, along with some snippets of the book and perhaps some information on the characters.
It's exciting, and I'd like you to share it with me as it unfolds. Oh, and since I entitled this with a reference to the Release Date, it might be appropriate to include that here as well. Lost in the Bayou is scheduled for release on December 2, 2011. If I can figure out how to have a virtual Release Party online, we'll certainly do that and you're all invited.
