New Year, New Blog!

2011 was a rough year for me.  It was one setback after another, and at one point I was seriously considering trying my hand at writing country songs (no, not seriously).  But then on November 9th, I got an email that turned my world around.  Musa Publishing sent me a contract!  They wanted to publish my book!  Naturally I jumped at the chance.  Flash forward to the present, and all systems are go.  Four months from today I will be a published author.  Well... four months and fifteen days, to be precise.

I cannot even find the words to convey how excited I am about this.  (Um... should I be worried about that?  I am a writer, after all...  Only kidding.)  I wrote my first "book" at the age of seven, and I've been creating stories off and on ever since.  Needless to say, it's been a lifelong dream to have my fiction published, and now it's actually happening.  It's all still a bit surreal.

Thanks so much for stopping by to read.  All the best for the new year and fingers crossed that 2012 will be a banner year for all of us!



  1. Congrats on the new book!!! And welcome to Musa! It's a great company. I really like using blogger too. I've got mine set up as www.arleycole.blogspot.com. It's pretty user friendly. I think you'll enjoy posting!

  2. Way to go, Libby! Starting out is a huge step for sure, but everything looks great so far. Hope you enjoy much success with your writing career!

  3. Welcome to the world of publishing and blogging! Many congratulations on your contract :).


  4. Good luck, Libby, with your book with Musa. I felt the same way when I received my contract! How cool is that, eh? You have a wonderful future ahead of you, fellow Musan.

  5. Congratz Libby. I'm just an intern who dreams of someday being an author, but I almost cried with happiness when I got a Christmas card from Musa calling me an editor, so I know how you feel.

    Hope to see more of you :)

  6. Oh my goodness, ladies, thank you so much for your comments. You're all so sweet! I just can't get over how positive and supportive the whole Musa community is!

  7. Like your blog setup Libby. Going to follow.
