Death in the Desert, RL Coffield's third novel in the Ben Thomas trilogy, published by Moonlight Mesa Associates, sold out again this weekend at an Arizona festival.
Coffield's first award-winning novel, Northern Escape, came within two books of selling out also. Most people bought the two books together. Ironically, the second book in the trilogy has not yet been published. When asked when it might be forthcoming, the publisher only shrugged and explained she was busy with other projects right now.
Moonlight Mesa Associates, the publisher of these two novels, is moving closer to an agreement with Jered James.
Rumor is rife that the publisher is also beginning early talks with a cowboy poet, who for now must remain nameless.
