MuseItUp Publishing

A short time ago, multi-talented author, editor, and publisher, Lea Schizas, announced the opening of her new publishing house, MuseItUp Publishing,

Lea's goal is to help writers succeed whether through her newsletter, Apollo's Lyre,, her writer's forum, The MuseItUp Club,, her annual free writers' conference, MuseItUp Online Writing Conference,, or her latest adventure, MuseItUp Publishing,

MuseItUp Publishing is a small and upcoming royalty paying independent Canadian e-publisher, open to submissions from both published and unpublished authors and to the following genres:

* Romance - everything from: romantic comedy, contemporary romance, fantasy romance, historical romance, paranormal romance, romantic suspense, western romance
* Paranormal - Fantasy - they love vampires, ghosts, witches, werewolves and shape shifters...and dragons
* Mystery - Suspense -Thriller - captivate us with the pacing of your novel. Hint: they love cozy mysteries
* Young Adult - they're big fans of the Potter & Twilight series but seeking a unique voice for this target group
* Horror & Dark Fiction - scare the living daylights out of us with your settings, dialogue, and characters - not with blood and gore and missing human parts. Use the power of your writer's voice to draw images that will leave readers sitting at the edge of their seats.
