At the end of each year I get a little antsy to get the next year filled up with contracts. This is October and I still had some openings for 2019, and I got antsy. When I get like this, I pray. That’s what I did the first of the week. Five proposals entered my inbox. I’ve thanked God fo taking care of us, and I’ll still take proposals, but not all at one time.
Five proposals probably doesn’t sound like much. For a small company with only four active staff, it is a lot. We like to have two books come out each month. January is usually not a good month. Everyone has had too much Christmas. Our cover designer has a heavy load at work in July and August. We don’t publish during those months to ease her load. December is usually a bad month also. Everyone is so busy with Christmas that they forget about books. Books do make wonderful Christmas presents, but we’re usually thinking about other things.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m very pleased with the proposals. I wrote one contract last night and I have two to write today. This is getting exciting. I love to be busy. I’m thankful for everyone who has shown interest in Mantle Rock Publishing. We feel we have very good authors.
Can you imagine that less than three months Christmas will be upon us? Most people are not thinking about Christmas when it’s 90 degrees outside, but Christmas must be dealt with. Why not buy a good book? Our books are considered Clean Fiction. No curse words, no sex, no drinking. We do not like slang that is taken from curse words. In fact, I’m not a big fan of any slang. Why do we have to use useless words to explain something? Why not use clean words? Our books are books our grandchildren would enjoy reading. We are not ashamed for our children to read our books.
Since Christmas will be coming soon, go to https://mantlerockpublishingllc.com and click on the “Book” section. If you click on any book, it will direct you to Amazon.com where you can purchase the book.
