Having my book, WOUNDS, selected for publication by MuseItUp Publishing has multiplied my pleasure many times over for simply being a part of the Muse Family. The friendly, fun—or I should say—HILARIOUS—welcome I have received is more than anything I could have imagined. Most of the authors who are already a part of the Muse Family are ones I have either met or lurked among since the first Muse Conference I attended three years ago. And also ones coming right behind me, like Barbara Ehrentreu. Then there’s a strange being (?), Bonella, who has really spiced things up recently. You just don’t want to go near her cheesecake! Soon the hard work of editing will begin, but with all these A-Musing friends to call on for advice, help, and support, I know I will get through it okay.
