Good evening constant reader.
I wanted to share an exciting piece of news about one of the first authors I reviewed, CA Milson:
PR Log – Global Press Release Distribution
Horror Novelist C.A. Milson Strikes Deal With U.S. Based EDGE Publishing Company
By Amanda Clark
Dated: Feb 28, 2010
“The road to writing success for any author can be a difficult and arduous journey, however, Australian native, C.A. Milson, is looking forward to having a partner in his future endeavors. After years of working in the industry alone, he is now happy to say that his hard work has started to pay off. Milson’s book, “The Chosen: Rise of the Darkness,” first in a horror series now has the true opportunity to succeed. Milson just signed with U.S. based publisher, EDGE Publishing Company.
“I have been working on my writing for years, but being international and a self publisher, it can be
difficult to get your books on the shelf in many of the large U.S. chains, I knew I needed a traditional
publisher to help me,” stated Milson. “I am so excited to be an EDGE author.”
EDGE Publishing Company, through the direction of President, Phillip Vera, specializes in working with authors who are looking for a way to cut through the bureaucratic red-tape and “hoop jumping” of the publishing industry. “When I first read Chris’s story, I realized he was a great writer with a unique story and I wanted to be a part of it. This book deserves to be in print,” stated Vera. “I am looking forward to a long relationship with Chris and I can’t wait to promote his work.”
Furthermore, there are other big things in the works. EDGE Publishing Company recently signed an
agreement with C.A. Link, a Chinese Literary Agency based in Minnesota, specifically for Milson’s work.
This agreement will allow Milson’s books to be marketed and sold to the Asian market.
“I was so excited when I learned about the deal with C.A. Link, because I had been approached by them, but I couldn’t do anything because I wasn’t with a traditional publishing house. EDGE changed that and now billions of people might have the opportunity to read my work,” stated Milson excitedly.
Milson has been the recipient of numerous awards including placing in the Pre-editors & Editors Readers Poll in 2008 and working through deals to turn his book into a comic, a video game, an audio-book and an e-book.
“Chris has a fantastic product and he is an incredible writer. It’s great that he is able to get more exposure and audiences around the world are going to be able to see his work in stores,” stated Milson’s agent, Amanda Clark of Charlotte, North Carolina based, Grammar Chic, Inc. “We are looking forward to getting his books on shelves very soon.”
I want to take this opportunity to congratulate CA on this recent accomplishment. Way to go!
The Chosen” by C. A. Milson
If you “believe” or whether you “enjoy” reading about demons, gathering of souls and the like “The Chosen” by C. A. Milson covers them in this tale of horror. Almost all the vices of man are included such as sex, smoking, drinking, murder and mayhem and the like. It even includes the “proverbial” religious connotations in whether the characters believe in “God” and his protection or demons and their villainous ways. There is so much going on in this novel that you must read it carefully and with an open mind.
The energy of the author is reflected very well in this tome. One could say that you would be on the edge of your seat waiting for the next melee to happen. Powers of energy from the author and the characters will keep you reading until the end.
