I'd just like to thank...



Well, all of you really. (The ones who voted, anyway!)

I'm thrilled to announce that The Silent Hills won its general short story category in the recent Preditors & Editors Readers' Poll:

Needless to say - but I'll say it anyway - everyone at Musa Publishing is delighted with the result, especially as The Silent Hills was only published in the latter half of 2011.

If you're still without a copy, you can get it here http://tinyurl.com/6bro36q or on Amazon.

So, what's next for me and Musa?
I'm glad you asked. Later this year, Musa will be published a Tweens / YA ebook, The Superhero Club, about an outsider who learns self acceptance and the value of friendship.

Thanks again, peeps - it's a lovely way to start 2012.

  3. Thanks to Vonnie and to Wolf. I've dropped a line to the local paper about Silent Hills and I have a release date from Musa for The Superhero Club - November 9th. It's my first foray into the older child / young adult genre, so fingers crossed!

  8. Hi Julie, thanks for the applause. I just found out that The Silent Hills also received an honourable mention in the LR Cafe Best of 2011, in the Mystery/Romantic Suspense/Thriller Book category.
