Welcome to the Musa Books I Love Blog Hop! And today, I’m talking about Musa Books I love!
I’m also offering a give-away of one copy of Stained Glass Summer in any e-book format to one lucky person who posts a comment below. I will draw from the names on February 20. So, if you want to win a FREE copy of Stained Glass Summer, be sure to comment below! And by the way, Stained Glass Summer can be given as a gift–just in case those of you who have already read the book are thinking, but what do I do with ANOTHER copy?! Give it as a gift to someone who has not read the book!
The two Musa books I love are both published in the Euterpe YA Imprint. If you are interested in writing YA or MG for Musa, you can find the submission guidelines here.
The Girl Who Remembered Horses is a beautifully written story. The story takes place after the Dark Days, and Sahara is living in a Clan which travels. She has dreams of these wild creatures called Horses, and believes that it would be possible to train them. But, no one believes her, and instead, thinks it would be better to hunt and kill the horses. Through many twists and turns, Sahara’s gentleness and gift with animals shines as she cares and loves her two dogs, their pups, and her goats. The scene where Sahara rescues a baby horse is especially powerful, and demonstrates Linda Benson’s skill and knowledge in writing about horses. Sahara is a courageous character whose story will appeal to all ages. Highly recommend! (From my Amazon Review).
I interviewed Linda Benson about The Girl Who Remembered Horses in December, and you can read that interview here.
Linda Benson is participating in the Musa Books I Love Blog Hop, and you can find her blog here. Stop by her blog for a visit! She is also doing a give-away of her book!
The Trouble with Nightingale is a YA novella. (Longer than a short story, and shorter than a novel). It’s a horror story for older YA’s or adults. I’ll admit, I don’t usually read horror, but I’ve gotten to know Ameleen as a Musa author, and she has been very supportive of Stained Glass Summer, so I decided to give her book a read. It’s one that will linger in your mind for a LONG time! Eighteen-year-old Millie Scrubbings must decide if she will accept her responsibilities as Hell’s new Gatekeeper or risk the denizens of Hell trashing her home turf. Amaleen wrote a great blog post on the Euterpe Blog which talks about how a couple of the characters in her book are based on real people….you can read her blog post here.
Now, be sure to leave a comment below if you want to be entered to win a free copy of my Musa Book, STAINED GLASS SUMMER.
Twelve-year-old Jasmine wants to be an artist. But, can she escape the shadow of her artistic Father to discover her own path as a glass artist?
Twelve-year-old Jasmine adores her photographer Father and wants to be an artist just like him. But when Dad abandons the family, Jasmine is sent to spend the summer with her Uncle on a Pacific Northwest Island. Soon, Jasmine is learning stained glass from island glass artist, Opal, and thinking she might just be developing a crush on Island boy, Cole. But, it’s not until Jasmine finds herself mentoring another young artist that she can truly let go of her Father and call herself an artist by her own terms. The story will appeal to young readers between the ages of 8-adult.
