ERATO was one of the nine Mousai (Muses), the goddesses of music, song and dance. Her name means "the lovely" or "beloved" from the Greek word eratos. In Classical times, when the Muses were assigned specific artistic spheres, she was named Muse of erotic poetry and mimic imitation and represented holding a lyre.--Theoi.com
At Musa, Erato is the home of our GLBT imprint. At Erato, we’re seeking to build a wide spectrum of high-quality GLBTQ fiction in order to meet the needs of our diverse readership. Romance, YA, speculative fiction, and more all have a home here. We want stories about GLBT characters that our readers can enjoy again and again.
