I am so excited to announce that last Monday, I signed a contract with Musa Publishing to publish my first manuscript, A Place to Call Their Own.

Here's a little bit about Musa Publishing:

Musa began as a dream shared by four publishing industry professionals. Now that the reality is here, Musa has become the home to debut YA novelists and NYT/USA Today bestselling authors, award-winning books and literary chapbooks, the latest in speculative fiction to the lost treasures of an American science fiction pioneer—and all at reasonable, affordable prices. So whether you're an author, looking for a home for your latest book, or a reader, looking for the best digital fiction without paying an arm and a leg for it, Musa has something for you.

Here's a link to the website where you can check out other great authors from Musa Publishing:

A Place to Call Their Own will find it's home within Musa's Erato-GLBT imprint. Here is a link to Erato-GLBT's blog:

If you're an aspiring writer like me, they are accepting submissions, give them a shot.

Anyway, through hard word, determination, and perseverance, I will be able to say I am a published author this year. If you're also a writer, I wish you the best of luck and my only advice is to just keep trying. If you follow my blog because you're on another dream journey, I wish you the same!

Have a great weekend everyone!

  3. Congrats, Dean!
    I've decided to self-pub this year, so I guess I'll also be a "published author" ! 2013 is a GOOD year!
