Musa Publishing

Pop the champagne! Woo Hoo! Musa Publishing opened today. *happy dance* I am so happy for the Musa staff and I would like to congratulate them on a job well done. They have whipped this company into shape in an amazingly small amount of time! The following excerpt is from their blog:

"By the end of November, we'll be releasing anywhere from 6 to 8 books each week in the 9 imprints that comprise Musa. By the end of 2011, we will have released at least 74 new books plus 23 Aurora titles, meaning we will have 97 books in the Musa catalogue. We will also have three issues of our speculative fiction EMag, Penumbra, with contributions from 18 authors."

Impressed yet? I know I am. I am so proud to call Musa the home of my labors of love. To learn more about the Founder and Chief Editor of Musa Publishing, Celina Summers, one of my fellow authors interviewed her on her blog at Stop by and give her a shout!

Birthday Presents

We all love birthdays. Birthdays are the only day of the year that you are the main focus. The only day that is truly yours all year long.

When is my birthday? My birthday was September 26th.

So Heather, what prompted you to blog about birthdays? Oh, I thought you'd never ask. I received the perfect present a few days ago. Musa Publishing contracted my second book, Book One of The Tribulations of Emberlyn Trilogy: The Catalyst.

The Catalyst is a paranormal young adult novel set in a present day, pre-apocalyptic world. Emberlyn's unique soul allows her the choice of the salvation or destruction of the human race in the ultimate battle between Heaven and Hell. Which side will she choose? If you love angels, demons, and the pressure of the race against the end of days, then these are the books for you. The Catalyst will be released by Musa Publishing in February 2012. Stay tuned for more information.

Happy birthday to all of you! May you have many, many more!

Why 9/11? Why indeed?

When the tragedy of 9/11 devastated our nation, I was a new mother, wife of a fire fighter, daughter of a state police officer, niece of a naval officer who worked in the Pentagon, and sister to a former member of the United States Coast Guard. To say that it hit a little too close to home was an understatement. My baby girl slept peacefully while the Twin Towers fell, the Pentagon ravaged, and the passengers of Flight 93 fought bravely and crashed. I hit my knees and prayed that she would never have to endure such sorrow.

Today is my cousin's birthday, and on 9/11/01 she said: "It won't be just my birthday anymore, it is the day when patriotism was awakened." I choose to remember it that way too.

Should it be a national holiday? Yes.

For many reasons:

1. To honor those that died that day. Some who went to work thinking it was just "another day at the office," but now are at peace. But more for the ones that were left behind, to mourn their loved ones, whom they will never touch or kiss goodnight again.

2. For the babies that are growing up with out one or both parents. For those who lost brothers, sisters, husbands, wives, aunts, uncles, and other family or friends.

3. For those who have fought and died for our freedom whether it was 200 years ago or today, especially those who fought and continue to fight to bring justice to a grieving nation. I thank you for all that you do from our backyard, to our borders, to overseas. I solute you. I will always support and defend the actions of our troops. They are warriors, soldiers, and fight for our freedom because their heart tells them too. Not because they simply are taking orders.

4. For Americans to rest and remember all that we have to be thankful for, and that we've yet one more day of freedom.

I'm sure I could think of more reasons, but those I've listed should be more than sufficient. As a woman who has lost her brother and her father, I can truly say my heart breaks for every one of you who has ever lost a loved one. And as Americans, we should NEVER FORGET! EVER!
