At midnight, while many are watching the Ball

 descend, a bigger event will be happening.

The Midnight Muse Train will be arriving with ten---let me repeat that TEN new treasures

for your reading pleasures.

Right behind Heather is

Best Selling Author Kat Holmes with her latest tale of Ghosts,


and Mayhem.

The Lighthouse

gives you that and so much more, opening with the confused thoughts of murder victim number one...AFTER the deed. Will there be more murders before the hunky Chief of Police and the new Lighthouse keeper unravel the truth?

Follow this link to learn more about The Lighthouse, and you need to hurry.

The Midnight Muse Train is JUST around the corner.

Have you ever wondered if DRAGONS

really exist, and if they do, what kind of life they lead? Antonia Tiranth is the quintessential expert on all things "dragon" and the Mistress of Dragon Tales. In other words Antonia HAS the answers in her newest release

Kellan's Dragon.




what more could you ask for?

Delilah K. Stephan's, Muse's very own Cover Art Goddess, and secret weapon,

(Have you SEEN the covers she does?) is also one of the most talented authors on the planet.

Ghostly Passions, her debut Muse tale, gives us a ghost

 whose mind sees, feels, and works just fine, thank you very much...unfortunately the REST of him is challenged. 

Well, he IS a ghost, after all. How is he to change his dilemma when the very sexy Ghost Hunter

 enters his domain?

Sometimes life makes no sense no matter how hard you try to figure it out.

In Kay Dee Royal's Big Girls Don't Cry Wolf, Brea struggles to feel at home within her own skin.

She lost her twin sister, a pain that tears at her every moment of every day, but now that her adoptive parents have deeded their resort to her, she HAS to find a way to control the burning confusion...or fail.

But then two brothers, twins themselves chose Brea's lake front resort and she can no longer deny her love of all things wolf, has a deeper, more ingrained purpose.

of mythology have long been at odds, but the Oak King has a beautiful daughter, Dara, just itching to lift away the mantle of the duty her position expects of her...especially when the delicious Tinne

and today is her inauguration. All is going relatively well until two men board her virgin flight bent on making her first flight enough to

What a fantastic train, Lin. A wonderful way to showcase Muse books and authors, as well as our wonderful covers.

Rochelle Weber--Author, Editor said...

Wow, Lin! Incredible!

lionmother said...

Whooooooooooohooooooooo!!!! It makes me want to meet that train. Fantastic cover blog. I didn't even go to the individual cover blogs yet, but I know they will be fabulous too.:) You made me want to read every one of these books!

Lin said...

You are all really kind. I did this with my head cold feeling like a wall of fluff was between me and the screen, and my eyes burning. This was a new idea...a way of doing a Muse Round Up before the new books comes out to give everyone another chance to read what fantastic books we have releasing at Muse. And I am going to do my best to make this a monthly feature from now on too.

And have I mentioned lately how much I LOVE being part of the Muse Family?

Cynthia said...

What an awesome arrangement. Keep it up.

Cynthia said...

Cynthia's husband Mike Arsuaga completely agrees

Emily Pikkasso said...
