Happy New Year Readers!

Here’s the thing. I’m so grateful for 2011! It was my break-in year. 2012 will be my break-out year. Allow me to explain – last September, I finally found a home for my young adult time-travel series with MusaPublishing. In April of 2012, years and years of hard work will pay off with the release of ‘THE LAST TIMEKEEPERS AND THE ARCH OF ATLANTIS’. It took years for the breaking-in process to finally yield results, and under nine months to break-out into the world. Yes, it sounds like a pregnancy of a sort, and it is. That’s what it’s like to be a parent – you raise your ‘child’ to the best of your abilities, then set him or her free to do their thing.

So without further ado, I want to post links to young adult authors who broke-out this past year. If any of you received an ereader as a gift, please check out these talented writers and their books. You may just find a new author to follow for years to come.

  1. I really can't wait to read about THE LAST TIMEKEEPERS AND THE ARCH OF ATLANTIS. Very excited! And thank you sooooo much for the shout out. :-)

  2. Shouting out is something I love to do, AMALEEN! See, did it again! Best of luck in 2012!

  3. Hi Sharon, it has indeed been a good year for writers at Musa. And who knows what goodies 2012 may bestow upon us. Must dash - I feel a bout of editing coming on!

  4. Great post, Sharon. I am in the same boat as you, and can't wait for my first Musa book to be released in June. I still have to pinch myself to see if I'm dreaming. I'm sure as soon as the editing begins, I'll realize it well enough.

    Hoping for the best for all the new authors with the Musa group. It's wonderful to be part of this family.

  5. Have a wonderful breaking-out year, Sharon! Along with Cordelia, I'll be doing the same in June. It's exciting! :)

  6. Have I mentioned what a wonderful blog this is? I love your bookshelf graphic! On my way to download "The Last Timekeepers". (I'm using my phone - I can't believe how easy it is!!) Very much looking forward to it. And Sharon - I know I speak for so many others when I thank you for all the advice you have offered and all the support to all your fellow authors this year. Happiest, and most productive New Year to YOU!!!!

  7. Thanks Bette! But you'll have to wait until April 6th to download 'The Last Timekeepers and the Arch of Atlantis'! Still working on the editing!

  8. Thanks, Sharon, for including me on your list. I can't wait to read your newest title!
