C.A. Milson Books Available Soon in U.S. Bookstores

Horror Novelist, C.A. Milson has been in the writing world for years. Milson will see his book “The Chosen: Rise of the Darkness” re-released in American bookstores and online in early April.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PR Log (Press Release) – Mar 19, 2010 – Horror Novelist, C.A. Milson has been in the writing world for years, but it is today that he is finally seeing all of his efforts pay off. Recently picked up by Washington D.C.-based publisher, EDGE Publishing Company, Milson will see his book “The Chosen: Rise of the Darkness” re-released in American bookstores and online in early April.

“I am very excited by this opportunity,” stated Milson. “It’s one thing to be available online, but when it comes down to it, the true book reader wants to be able to go into a bookstore and pick up a copy any hold it in their hands before they purchase it. Being in stores and being represented by a real publisher who is going to have your back in printing and marketing is very important, not only for sales, but for credibility.”
Milson was originally introduced to EDGE Publishing Company by his agent, Charlotte, North Carolina-based, Amanda Clark, who is also President of Grammar Chic, Inc. Clark founded her company in 2008 and has a history of working with authors to help them realize their dream of being published.

“I started working with Chris on an entirely separate project in early 2009, but one day we started talking again and brainstorming and before we both knew it, we were arranging a time to speak with Phil Vera, President of EDGE Publishing. I had known Phil from a book that we collaborated together on in summer of 2009 and I just knew that Chris would be a great fit for EDGE,” stated Clark.

EDGE Publishing Company works with first time authors who are looking for an advocate to help them navigate the sometimes confusing publishing industry. A veteran in the printing industry, EDGE President Phil Vera has surrounded himself with experts in various facets of the publishing trade and has brought together a fantastic team that is going to be releasing approximately ten titles this year.

“I started EDGE Publishing Company to help authors. I had met many people who just didn’t understand the industry and when you have a quality piece of work, this can be upsetting and discouraging. I am proud to say that we are going to be putting many imaginative, incredible stories in print this year, including Chris’s work. I am very excited that I have been able to help him increase his exposure in the U.S. book market, especially since it was challenging for him, geographically, to be noticed,” stated Vera.

Milson, an Australian native now living in Samara, Russia has two television appearances scheduled in March and April to discuss his publishing deal and the re-release of his book. He will be appearing on SOBYTIYA TV on Monday, March 22, 2010 and on SKAT TV Vashe Utro (Your Morning), a local Samara, Russia TV show on a currently pending date in April.

EDGE Publishing Company is located at: 8939 Sweetbriar St., Manassas, VA 20110. You can reach the staff at EDGE Publishing Company by calling: (703) 724-9235.

Good news for author CA Milson!

The Written Universe

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!

P&E Nominations

What a delight it was to have been nominated by readers in the categories for Best Horror and Best Author. It is a wonderful thing to be recognized by some, and it makes this journey all the more enjoyable.

Which brings me to my next post 🙂

These last few days I have been burning the midnight oil, working freelance in marketing again. Okay, not exactly the way it should be, but I am enjoying what I am doing at present. I am working freelance for a few businesses doing telemarketing. (GHASTLY! I hear you say!!!). Yes folks, a dreaded telemarketer. But hey, that is a part of me, and somehow I do this extremely well. If I was to post my CV on here, it would literally read as a “Who’s Who” directory. In my time I have gotten to work with some great companies and some not so great.

This time around I am on contract to 3 companies, 2 in Vancouver and 1 in London. Not bad, the time difference sure has messed me up this week abit, but I will get used to it. Last night I had a 4th offer from a company in Maryland, part of a project for Microsoft. It sounds like a great gig, so I will take that one up to 🙂

Which brings me to my next point (and original thought). Nominations.

Reading my emails this morning, I got an email from a dear friend, who dropped me a little bit of great news to start my day. Apart from the things in her email which I wont share on here, she did say,

“You will not believe who got a nomination for a Site of Excellence. Go check this out.”

Okay, so I open this link and guess what I see.  I see this. Seems someone likes my writing enough to submit me for an award 🙂

As I said above, it is a delight to be nominated for an award. Once again I want to thank everyone who voted for me.

Thank you one and all.
