As One Door Closes

The recent announcement by my publisher, Musa Publishing, that it will be forced to close its doors was naturally a great shock for myself and my fellow authors. Musa has dealt fairly and transparently with us all and we have come to see ourselves as part of the Musa family. However, the rapidly changing publishing industry has been especially hard on small indie publishers and we have to accept that Musa needs to bow out in a dignified manner with its integrity intact.

Musa Publishing finally ceases operations on 28th February, 2015. Until then ALL its eBooks are available at greatly reduced rates. My novel The Exile of Elindel is now priced at $1.20.

I will always be grateful to Musa for my first break into publishing and for giving me the opportunity to meet so many friendly and helpful authors, most of whom are determined to stay in touch. I look forward to following the progress of their writing careers and I wish them every success.

Although I am very sad it has all ended, it was a very valuable experience for me and one I would not have missed. I learnt a great deal about writing and the world of publishing during my time with Musa. So I would like to thank some of the people who made this experience possible.

My thanks go to staff members Celina Summers, Kelly Shorten, Kelly Mand, Jeanne de Vita, Dominique Eastwick, Angela Kelly, and Helen Hardt. I particularly want to thank Clarissa Johal, Sharon Ledwith, Sloane Taylor, and Alicia Joseph for their help, support, and friendship. Special thanks go to my gifted editor Damien Angelica Walters and my promotions specialist, Dianna Gunn.

This isn’t the end, guys.

Just the end of a chapter.

The story will go on.

  5. I know you have already started the search for a new publisher and that you have the grit and determination to succeed. You have come a long way since we first “met” on MySpace and I am proud to have been part of your journey. Let’s hope this is just one sidestep on the long road to the top!
