Rave Review for Stoney Bowers' "Reflections from the Wilderness"
Cowboy poet, Stoney Greywolf Bowers, received his first review for Reflections from the Wilderness from MidWest Book Review. The reviewer, Shirley Johnson,Senior Reviewer for MidWest Book Review, gave Bowers' book a glowing recommendation.
"We are so thrilled, and pleased, with Ms. Johnson's review," said publisher Becky Coffield. "We've all worked very hard on Stoney's book, from the phenomenal cover, done by Vin Libassi, to the editing, to layout and design. We all appreciate the review as though each of us individually received it.
"Stoney's work is worthy of these kind words, however. Stoney is, in many ways, an American icon who stands for a past way of life and past values that are quickly disappearing or being tossed aside," said Coffield.
"I am so please that I've had the opportunity to produce this book," Coffield added.
As for other Moonlight Mesa news, today Coffield accepted the first proof of Saving Tom Black, Jere D. James' western/romance. Several cases of books were ordered to be sent out as Advanced Reader Copies and also will be used for test marketing. The book does not officially debut until November 1st.
James is busy on an edit of his second Jake Silver Adventure, Apache. Moonlight Mesa may move up the delivery of this book to make room for the Casey Tibbs project and two others.
"I was hoping for a few weeks off in September," Coffield commented. "Don't see that happening now. Maybe one week...maybe."
