Meet Maia Strong

I am thrilled to introduce to you one of Samhain's newest authors --

Maia Strong!

Maia is one of my dearest friends -- we've known each other since college -- and I'm just bouncing off the walls that we're now writing for the same publisher. She's been writing for years, but I harangued her into submitting to Samhain, and I'm so glad I did. We've been beta-reading for each other for a while now, so I've actually had the chance to read her upcoming book already. It's a m/m fantasy romance that just rocks.

And if you read Samhain's first line contest on their blog last summer, you've read the first five lines of the book. Hers was one of the ten finalling manuscripts chosen for an editor read.

So here are the details:

And The Ballad of Jimothy Redwing will be available later in 2008. Don't worry, I'll keep you posted!
