Despite the manic schedule at Moonlight Mesa Associates, Western Book Publisher, a few weeks ago I felt myself drawn to two projects I'd put on hold for the last several years. I was irresistibly drawn to Northern Escape, the first award-winning suspense novel Moonlight Mesa took back from another publisher, no names mentioned, and to Life Was A Cabaret, our award-winning sailing memoir.
As for Life Was A Cabaret, the text went largely, but not completely, unchanged. Of course, a few changes were made, but nothing dramatic. However, we changed the miniature font size used by the book's first publisher to a 12, and I added PHOTOS, something the first publisher had been very negative about doing. When the new copies arrived at my office, for the first time I held the book in my hands and felt so happy with it. I'd always hated the cramped print, the overly-filled pages. Now the book looks real, feels real, and makes me feel real happy!
