FYI, MSV stories are published under several imprints, or categories, if you prefer the term. You might want to read about them and familiarize yourself with what kind of theme you would like to write about. Several readers mistake them for series titles, but they’re not. It is, however, very much possible to release a series under these imprints.
My Special Valentine books are also available online. If you feel it’s tedious to browse through several shelves in bookstores for your favorite titles, just register and shop away in the convenience of your home, or wherever you are. Oh, and please do take time to read these instructions first before you order.
