Karen Cote of Karen's Chaise Lounge!

Let me tell you about the coolest publishing house I have ever been privvy to be a part of, MuseItUp Publishing (,, and I'm not saying that because I'm contracted with them, I'm saying that because it really is a great place to hang your hat. There are people getting in on the ground level of a great thing. There's Lin Holmes, her daughter Kat, Nancy, Heather, and a whole host of people who have made me feel more welcome than I could have ever imagined I could be made to feel. Of course there's Lea, our fearless leader, who runs this company, keeps us in check and makes us feel like family in such a way I didn't think it was possible.

But I want to take time to talk about someone who has gone out of her way to make me feel special and that is the author of Erotic Deception and host of Karen's Chaise Lounge, Karen Cote. Her book isn't out until October but you need to keep an eye on her. She's funny, witty, and is ubertalented. I for one can't wait to get my hands on her book.

Karen is sweet, tart, and I hope to get to meet her at the First Annual Muse Conference in Montreal this November. I may have to squeeze every last dime and pinch every last penny for the next 8 months just to pull it off, but I will be there, with bells on. Oh and did I mention I would be going virtual on her Chaise Lounge on April 11th?

Karen has had several guests already and has a lot about her own book and characters at the Chaise Lounge. Lin Holmes has stopped by as has Roseanne of Muse. Bonella and her friend have made appearances and Karen's sense of human is on full display.

So why don't you hop on over and have a look see and leave a comment. And tell her what you think. I'm sure she'd appreciate it.

Amy, considering the talent I've seen come from your work (the most amazing Book Trailer I've ever seen) I am humbled by this post and your friendship.

MuseItUp Publishing, Inc. is great because of the people in it we call family. You, my fellow artist, are someone I'm proud to call family.

Thank you for this.

I agree with you Amy - Karen is an awesome woman and goes out of her way to help others. I love her Lounge site and look forward to seeing you there on the 11th.
Congrulations on your upcoming release from Muse.

Karen is definitely unique, but I have to say there are so many Musers that I am quite proud of who give of their time to promote everyone.

Karen's Chaise Lounge has to be one of the neatest things I've seen. Those avatars are so cool (aging myself with 'cool') and yes, Karen is way witty, humorless (almost typed homeless but edited it LOL) and we're thrilled she's a part of the Muse, just as we are of you, Amy.

Thank you for bringing attention to Karen's Lounge.

Karen is probably one of the most generous people I know. Also she was so much fun to work with to get my avatar ready for my appearance and the debut appearance of my main character, Carolyn Samuels on Karen's Chaise Lounge. She patiently changed everything I wanted and we came up with such awesome avatars.:) Karen is a very special person and I am very glad we are fellow Musers. I will be appearing on Karen's Chaise Lounge on April 18th. I can't wait to see your avatar, Amy.

Karen is a kind, generous person who spotlights our fellow Muse authors in a unique way on Karen's Chaise Lounge. The first thing I'm going to do when I get in there is try out the chaise lounge. Bet it's comfy...

Love you all!
