Our publishing season really runs from July to July, with most of our books coming in the last and first quarters of the year. Here’s a little teaser look at some covers of upcoming projects. Be sure to join our mailing list to keep up with our work and/or follow us on the medias social. Instagram, Twitter, Facebook.
If you’d choose paper cuts over public speaking, this workshop is for you.
Every business owner, artist, author and entrepreneur MUST network, connect, speak and communicate with other people, no matter how you might feel about public speaking. Let’s make it easier. Join us for our next “lunch and learn” session to help you become more comfortable in public speaking.
Oh! Have we got some good books coming soon for you! Let’s see now, there are at least 3 books for kids and big kids, one really nice work on the art of oral storytelling, a collection of off-kilter folktales. We’re making some editorial decisions about two more how-to books and we’re talking to new potential authors all this month. Along with new authors, we have two new illustrators who are bringing their time and talent to our upcoming books. You just have to keep your eyes open for fresh works, coming soon.
So! Add yourself to the mailing list over on that >>>> side of the website and we’ll keep you in the loop!
Ok! Fine, here’s a teaser of one of the new illustrations from one of the big-kids’ books. Think the moon over the Sonoran desert. . .
Sean Buvala had a nice article in the trade magazine for the Independent Book Publishers’ Association October edition. In it, he talks about the many ways an author might connect with an audience for books sales and speaking connections.

Coming Soon! We’ll be releasing our small collection of “The Fox and The Crow,” with Aesop tales hand-illustrated by the Mesquite Tree Studio. We’ll be running a promotion that will encourage you to buy your copy on a specific day over at the big online book distributor. When you are one of the first X numbers of people to do so on the day we tell you, we’ll be sending you (postal mail!) a three-piece poster set that’s ready to go up on a teacher’s bulletin board or maybe even framing for your home or office. PLUS every person who orders gets free middle-grades lesson plans created to match the posters. Here’s a sneak peek at the first in the series, which will not contain the watermark you see here. Keep your eyes open!
We’re starting to list our RFP or Calls on their own page. These will be most often for illustrators. Please visit the page at this link now to see our latest requests.
We’ve created a workshop to help answer the most basic questions about publishing your nonfiction book for adults or teens. We’re also going to be discussing creating the basic kids’ book. Learn more about this Arizona-based live workshop at this link now.
