My publisher

announced receiving an

e-mail from someone who read my September Muse It Up release,

Beyond Yesterday, and I just have to

share. Here's what my publisher posted today:


It's very heartwarming when readers contact us to express their views. Congrats, Lin, I believe you have acquired a new fan. This came in my ebox today:

Dear Ms. Schizas,
   I just read "Beyond Yesterday", by Lin Holmes.  I have to tell you, im
not a reader.  When I reed, I tend to lean toward non-fiction.  I have to
say, she is a wonderful writer.  She kept my attention with her wonderful
understanding of her characters!!
   Keep it up, Lin!!  She writes from the heart!!  I totally enjoy her

The readers...their words give us the true picture about the success or failure of our writing skills.
This is my very first year as a PUBLISHED author, and less that two months after my first release
I won an award, had a stellar review from a
NY Times best selling author, and accolades have continued...
But no author realistically expects all things to be rosy..and trust me they haven't been.

Many people do not understand the person that sits at home and pounds the keyboard creating new worlds, new obstacles for characters we hope endear those who will one day read their tales.
"Lazy" is a word that gets bantied about a lot.
"Failure" when your books do not immediately make the ranks of Harry Potter's success.
There is this delusion that writers become overnight millionaires once they get published. NOT even CLOSE to being true. Most writers have no choice but to write AROUND day jobs, but those like myself, who can and do write a lot, do so because we're
disabled...our bodies shutting down on us in ways we hope no one else will ever have to experience.
Rose Oliveri's letter is my gold, but one day...
Today is the first anniversary of my Publisher, Muse It Up Publishing. I'm astounded how we have grown and the avenues our books travel in this the very first year.

Nothing beats receiving a note from a reader, Lin, you're right. But also nothing beats the feeling I have to have met every single one of the Muse authors. It's with great honor that Litsa and I say we are proud to have had the opportunity to have worked on your manuscripts.

Thank you for celebrating with us today.

I couldn't have said it better myself, Lin. Congratulations on your success. I hope there will be many more letters in your future.
