Publisher Has Good News!

Muley cover    It’s always a pleasure to have some good news! Here it is:

Moonlight Mesa Associates received notification today that A Beginner’s Guide to Owning a Mule  is a finalist in the New Mexico-Arizona Book Awards! The book was entered in the Pets/Animals Division. The title was Moonlight Mesa’s overall best-selling nonfiction book in 2018.

Awards will be announced November 9 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

MEANWHILE, work has begun on Lee Anderson’s The View From My Saddle.  “This book is absolutely amazing,” editor Renee Witty commented. “I learned so much from Lee’s first book (Developing the Art of Equine Communication), but this new book is even more incredible. It’s extremely reader-friendly but also extremely informative.”

The View From My Saddle  discusses training techniques as well as the ins and outs of horse equipment with a lot of emphasis on bridle bits. “People will think twice before they stick a bit in a horse’s mouth and jerk on those reins,” Witty said. Anderson also covers the various disciplines as well as the competitive show ring/racing/trail parts of the horse world.

“Lee has been there, done that, and studied these things for decades. Having been an engineer, he is very attuned to how and why things work. This book is a must-read for every equestrian out there!” Renee said.

The publisher, Moonlight Mesa Associates, Inc. hopes to have the book in print and available by January  of 2020. Vin Libassi will again do the cover design even though he’s now living in Ecuador. Happily they have internet!

FINALLY,  after a lot of delay, procrastination, and postponement, Memoir Writing  is now available on Amazon as an ebook;  priced at $4.95.  Looking to write a memoir? You’ll appreciate the many tips and ideas in this short book.

Get Ready to Ride with Moonlight Mesa’s Equine Best Sellers

equine_comm2It’s nearing the time to saddle up for those of you who’ve been housebound and frozen or flooded in all winter! The storm this week will, hopefully, be the last of winter’s blasts…until November anyway.

Since they’ve not been ridden much, if at all, you might want to take it easy the first time or two you mount up. Now a seasoned horse will pick up just like the last time you rode him, but those younger horses aren’t quite as reliable.

It so happens that we have two top-selling equine books to help you out! Lee Anderson’s Developing the Art of Equine Communication is an award-winning,  rock-steady seller for us. This book is fabulous. Why?

  1. It’s not written in a highfalutin’, know-it-all manner and attitude. Lee is down-to-earth and wholesome. You’ll understand every sentence he writes.
  2. Lee not only tells you about the problems your horse may be having, but he gives a great explanation WHY your horse is doing what it’s doing. I found this element in his book to be absolutely outstanding. Once you know WHY your horse is doing some fool thing, it takes a lot of the fear out of it for you. You’ll find yourself saying, “OH! So that’s why he does that!”
  3. Lee tells you clearly and simply how to fix the problem.

Developing the Art of Equine Communication has sold from England to Australia, and it’s available in all ebook formats too. And…we’re pleased to say that Lee is coming out with another sensational equine book: The View from My Saddle. We hope to have this title available in the fall.

Muley cover But…you have a mule? No worries. A Beginner’s Guide To Owning a Mule  was our best-selling book in 2018, and it’s off to a heck of a good start in 2019.

If you’re thinking at all of buying a mule, whether you’re an experienced horseman or not, you’ll want to read this gem. It’s well worth the $12.95 price and likely will save you a lot of frustration, heartache, and maybe even butt ache too.

If you buy either book from Moonlight Mesa in April or May, you’ll get free shipping! You’ll need to email us for this special, though. And we accept all credit cards!

These books would also make fine gifts for your family members for either Mother’s Day or Father’s Day!

Just click here to contact us! Make sure to include your name and shipping address in the email.

Get that saddle out and cleaned up. Curry that winter coat off your critter, and let’s get ready to ride!
