Lea Schizas and Litsa Kamateros storm-trooped their way into giving the authors
flying in for the Meet and Greet Author's Retreat from around the world diligently worked at achieving.
Muse Publishing's HH (head honchos) are constantly going out of their way to
spotlight us, the authors, in every way possible. When DO these women sleep?
What they're doing IS working. Less than three months after Muse It Up Publishing, Inc. opened it's doors, it won
22 top ten Preditors and Editors 2010 Readers Poll awards. Our head cover artist Delilah K. Stephans, won a
Covey Award, voted for by other Cover Artists, for her unique rendering for Emily Pikkasso's

Muse and it's family of editors, authors, CA's and HH
hit the ground running and haven't stopped.
Today the book signing takes place. Let's talk about this book signing for a moment.
It is to take place at Zellers Pointe Claire. What does that mean?
For those of us living here in the United States, think of Zellers as Canada's
TARGET stores. In fact that's what they REALLY are. This year Target acquired 189 Zellers store in their bid to expand into the Canadian market.
So imagine your local Target opening it's doors for 40 plus of our authors to meet, greet, and sign books for the
Saturday crowd! Would you forgive me if I slip out of my professional demeanor for a second and said "WOW!"
Saturday at my local TARGET? During the
PEAK hours of the afternoon, no less!
Prior to my research, I'd imagined Zellers to be a bookstore chain, comparable to
B&N...which ain't hay, but a bookstore IS a bookstore...solely...okay maybe with a Starbucks thrown in for the
mocha latte crowd. Nice, effective...however product specific.
Target's draw customers after more than JUST books...customers who will be more than a teeny bit interested in all those Z prizes...especially with Christmas and Black Friday right around the corner.
The potential for our authors to ROCK the Zellers world has escalated exponentially now that I know Zellers is Canada's Target!
To honor my brother and sister authors, I will walk to OUR local Target...about a mile away...this afternoon, stroll around, soak in the Saturday atmosphere, and imagine I am with you all in Canada at this wondrous event.
Lea and Litsa on behalf of our family...thank you for the extra
zillion you two put into giving us more than any of us could imagine. You guys are the
Now, let me copy and paste the pertinent information about today's book signing. If any of you can mosey on over to Zellers Pointe Claire, do not miss the magic of Muse It Up Publishing, and the incredible prizes and SURprises waiting for you.
