Breathless Press

In July 2009, Justyn Perry realised a long time dream of his when he opened the doors of Breathless Press.  Having worked for one of Canada’s largest Genre Publishing Houses, he approached his new endeavour from a solid background in publishing and he was armed with a goal – to make Breathless Press one of the best publishers of romantic and erotic fiction in the market and a place where the authors would feel at home.

Having seen a decline in the number of quality eBooks being published, Justyn saw an opening in the market for a publisher dedicated to producing books of a high calibre and he had an ambitious plan to release between 2 – 3 new titles each week.  Thanks to a stunning launch line-up of authors which included Sable Grey and Sheila Stewart along with around 20 additional contracted titles, Breathless Press was well on their way to a strong start.  In a market full of eBook publishers, Breathless Press was already standing out thanks to their reputation for excellence.

Breathless Press has continued to go from strength to strength and in October 2011, they made the move into the world of print.  Further expansion took place in June 2012 when Justyn launched Lycaon Press, a Young Adult imprint.

Loose Id

At Loose Id, stories that:

  • Unleash love stories from traditional romance, fantasy, science fiction and genre formulas by crossing traditional genre lines. While we want a romance, the primary conflict need not be between hero(es) and heroine(s) though a strong relationship conflict creates terrific story potential.
  • Unchain love stories from 'happily ever after' endings by allowing the 'happy for now' ending. In the real world, relationships don't always proceed quickly and conflicts don't always resolve themselves neatly. Not everyone survives big, climactic battles. An ending can show the hero(es) and heroine(s) taking the next step toward 'forever'; or show the primary romantic characters getting what they want, but at great personal cost, provided that it satisfies the reader. Or, an ending can be the traditional, wonderful, always beloved 'happily ever after'.
  • Unfetter love stories from traditional run-of-the-mill romance hero(es) and heroine(s). We love our Alpha-dominant heroes, but don't neglect your kick-ass Alpha heroines, gutsy gammas, and loyal betas. Everyone needs love in their lives: bring us multi-culturalism, alternative lifestyles and sexualities, big, beautiful heroines—make your characters real. No bland characters or Mary Sues need apply

Musa Publishing

The Muses, the nine beautiful daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne who became the patron goddessess of the arts in Greek mythology, are frequently summoned by the writer. You hear it all the time. "I'm waiting on my muse." Sometimes, a beautiful woman becomes the "muse" for a famous painter—like Emma, Lady Hamilton did for Romney. And, of course, the word "music" derives from "muse."

Is it any wonder, then, that we took the term "Musa" (Italian for muse) as our own when we started our own publishing company?

There are a lot of reasons to start a new publishing company. But, you may ask, what are ours? Well, it's all contained in our mission statement. 

At Musa Publishing, the author comes first. Period.

See, we've been in your shoes. The founders of Musa have worked in publishing for a long time. We are writers, editors, artists, designers, financial officers. We've seen the insides of the industry, both the good and the bad. And what does that usually entail?

The author comes last.

We could have said the story comes first. That, too, would be true in a way. The story is always at the top of the list. But behind that story is an author—a writer, working away in whatever corner available, who sweats and breathes and lives that story until it begins to stand on its own. That's why at Musa, we say the writer comes first.

So check out our submissions guidelines. See if this company has something to offer you. One thing we can guarantee. At Musa, the author—you—will come first. Whether you write spec fic or romance, GLBT or contemporary fiction, you will get the same attention to detail and the loving care of the entire house behind you. So if your heart is full of song and your spirit free of care, don't sit around and wait for your muse.

Because Musa is here.

Welcome to the journey.
