Indie Inklings

As both an independent author and publisher, I want to make this blog about issues relating to indie authors and publishing.  I have been in the "biz" for over 20 years, and I have been published by both the big publishers and little publishers, and, like Goldilocks, I have found just the right venue with my own business at EMRE Publishing, LLC.  We specialize in enhanced eBooks and publishing packages that put the author next to his reading public.

At EMRE Publishing, LLC, we offer the highest royalties (85 to 100 percent) to indie authors because the owner, Jim Musgrave, is an indie author, and his business was established to help the indie authors collect on their hard work without giving it all away to middle men.

 

As a special offer to Booklikes members, we are offering three types of services:

 

  1. If you are published and own full rights to your work, then you can submit your book to be published by EMRE through our Vearsa.com distribution plan:  https://emrepublishing.com/free-publishing-offer/ This offer won’t cost you a penny.
  2. If you want to publish using our 3-in-one Embellisher™ Mobile Publishing and Marketing App, then we can provide you with all the print and digital publishing services you need to get your title published through our auspices:  https://emrepublishing.com/self-published-authors/
  3. If you just want to market your books through us using a variety of mobile marketing promotional “extras,” then you can do that as well:  https://emrepublishing.com/market-your-books/

 

We work with “synergy” in mind.  The more authors we market through our app, the more interest and installations we get of our Embellisher™ eReader.  You can communicate with your audience through our Reader and Author Forum (part of the three ingredients in our app), and this will also add to your reader base.

 

We’re just getting started in mobile publishing and marketing, so we hope you can get on board and make it bigger!

Forevermore (Pat O'Malley Mysteries) (Volume 1) - Jim Musgrave

First Place in the 2013 CLUE Book Awards for Mysteries, Suspense and Thrillers. Finalist in the Next Generation Indie Book Awards, 2014.

 

What if Edgar Allan Poe did not die in Baltimore as a drunk in the gutter? What he were, instead, murdered?

 

In post Civil War New York City, Detective Pat O'Malley is living inside Poe's Cottage in the Bronx. O'Malley is haunted by Poe one night, and the detective finds a strange note. As a result, O'Malley decides to prove that Edgar Allan Poe did not die in Baltimore from an alcoholic binge but was, instead, murdered. O'Malley quickly becomes embroiled in a "cold case" that thrusts him into the lair of one of the most sinister and ruthless killers in 1865 New York City.

 

Jim Musgrave's Forevermore is a quick read in four acts that will keep your mind razor sharp trying to solve the mystery of Poe's murder. Pat O'Malley must first find out how to become intimate with females before he can discover the final clue in this puzzle of wits, murder and romance.

 

˃˃˃ Mini-Mystery in the Manner of Poe

"If any literary work is too long to be read at one sitting, we must be content to dispense with the immensely important effect derivable from unity of impression for, if two sittings be required, the affairs of the world interfere, and everything like totality is at once destroyed." Edgar Allan Poe

 

˃˃˃ Kindle Book Review (Carol Piner)

I adore Edgar Allan Poe and when I started Forevermore by Jim Musgrave I thought, "Oh no...another book about how bad Poe was." Was I in for a marvelous shock! The author, Jim Musgrave, envisioned a young man who admired Poe, even lived in his cottage, and wished to find out what Poe died of, why and who was responsible for the death of the dark poet.

 

Delving into Poe's life just before he died, Patrick O'Malley began his quest into Poe's death. The search for the truth led him to many famous writers such as Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, who hated Poe. John Anderson, the owner of a tobacco shop, who violated a young woman who worked for him, is another. She was the famous "Mary" from one of Poe's novels. O'Malley was told Anderson paid Poe to write the tale to avoid suspicion regarding her death. Oddly enough, John Anderson lived in Sleepy Hollow made famous by the tale of the "Headless Horseman". Other famous names were sprinkled throughout this mystery. Literary references ran rampant and Musgrave was adept at making them fit into his tale.

 

You will also be introduced to the low life. McKenzie, who became a protector, was head of the Plug Uglies. I'll let you read the book to find out what that means. I also met a certain Madame who introduced O'Malley to heights he had never attained before. You will find Joshua Reynolds a person who could have been the subject of Poe's worst visions.

 

There is no generally accepted reason for Poe's death. Some said alcohol, some dementia and others believed diabetes. We know he died in Baltimore in the gutter, dressed like a bum. Mr. Musgrave weaved a wonderful tale and came up with a perfectly believable reason for not only how Poe died, but also why he died like a bum. He was killed. If you want to know by whom, you will have to read the book.

 

˃˃˃ Portland Book Review

Most historians uphold that literary legend Edgar Allan Poe died from complications to his crippling alcoholism. But private detective Pat O’Malley believes otherwise. He believes that Poe was actually a victim of murder. In Forevermore, O’Malley sets forth on a mission of danger and romance to uncover the truth behind the demise of his old friend and one of America’s most important authors.
