New Books on the Horizon
With the publication of Saving Tom Black, by Jere D. James and Reflections from the Wilderness by Stoney Greywolf Bowers nearing completion, Moonlight Mesa Associates' publisher is looking at several new projects.
2010 will see Jere D. James' second novel, Apache, released, probably in April if there are no snafus, according to Becky Coffield. The publisher is now looking at a western for "young adult" readers by new author Mickey Spelling. "I hadn't thought about this market until queried by Spelling. I'm very interested in this project and am looking forward to talking in greater detail with Spelling. I'll need to see the completed manuscript before I decide, however," Coffield said.
It's unclear whether the next book from Stoney Bowers will be forthcoming in 2010 or 2011. Native American Reflections is the title of Stoney's next work that the publisher will be looking at. "Stoney's worked very diligently with us on his first project. He may need some R'n'R before launching into the second book."
Moonlight Mesa Associates will be in Sedona for a two day sale in August and in Pine, Arizona, over Labor Day. "With luck, if we keep our fingers crossed, we may have pre-publication copies of both Saving Tom Black and Reflections from the Wilderness available in Pine," said T. Jerome, new marketing agent for the company.
Moonlight Mesa offices will be closed for a two week period in September. "We need to regroup. It's been a long, hot summer. We're thinking we need some R'n'R ourselves!"
