This acronym expresses what I think it means to be a Musan:

M - means many genres of writings are published
U - shows unity between writers and the publisher
S - proves that satisfaction is insured
A - is for added perks
N - means nothing is withheld

Since I like to write in different genres, this is important to me. I also appreciate having a camaraderie with people at all levels of publishing and to know they want to satisfy both their authors and their readers. Other added perks include the Yahoo e-mail group where ideas are exchanged and blog sites are available. It's a plus, too, to have facts and figures regarding sales always available to authors.

Musa has already released two of my books--TIME WILL TELL (science-fiction) and TO CATCH A FISH (a novel, co-authored with David V. Wilton),  with a sequel, entitled BAITING THE HOOK, due for release November 30, 2012. I feel confident that my books are in the best hands with MUSA PUBLISHING COMPANY. Please see Musa's "About Us" section on their webpage for further information.

Symbol - Flag Day, June 14
It's been spit on and stepped on
And even burned,
But nothing can destroy
This symbol of freedom.

People being allowed
To desecrate it
Proves that the United States
Is a free country.

Those of us who care,
The ones with respect,
Pick it up, shake it off,
And hang it high again.

In the land of the free,
And the home of the brave,
Let our flag's red, white and blue
Forever wave.

You catch more than fish, don't you?
In the waters of the bay
You seek, not just a bite on your line,
But, also, words shared with a friend
In a time of quietness and peace.

When you are lucky and a string of fish
Dangles from the side of the boat,
With a gleam in your eye, you forget the chore
That will be yours--the messy scaling and gutting--
And anticipate the pleasure of
Giving them to a friend.

Not many people realize, as you do
That what you really catch to keep
Is what you give away.
The form may be fish,
But the gift is love.
