Those who Author

The unique voices of our authors is something we are incredibly honored to share.  From the short story author, the Children’s author, the author who loves contributing to Anthologies, and of course the author who writes and shares their own stories in a singular book.  We celebrate each of you here.  

Meet our children's author

Cathy Gagliardi

Cathy, a beloved children’s author from Ontario, Canada, has been writing and sharing her stories with children for over six years! Her titles include BellyFlies, Gonna Build a Boat, The Chocolate Egg Willow, and her newest releases Mother Love and I Love Icecream. Recently, Cathy approached us to ask if we might be able to help her with a dilemma she had.  A publishing platform where she shared all of her titles had recently begun doing work on their site and suddenly, Cathy discovered all but one of her books had disappeared!  When she attempted to reach out to the company to learn what had happened and how it could be corrected, she was met with silence.  Not certain what to do, she reached out to Carnelian Moon Publishing. In under two weeks, we not only had all her books available online again, but we had prepared the first of her books, Bellyflies, to be an eBook.  We also updated the contents to allow Cathy to expand her book’s reach worldwide in paperback! To learn more about Cathy, visit her through her links provided below.
Meet our Newest Author

Brian Keith South

Brian’s new book, Demystifying College Admission Learn Key Strategies and Develop the Right Mindset to Get into the College of Your Choice, is available worldwide in mid-Sept 2020!

Brian was referred to us by a dear friend after he discovered the book he had been anticipating being published soon was suddenly delayed and to move forward, he would have to supply additional funds to the publisher for what the publisher deemed was necessary additional rework.  Brian’s dream of seeing his work out in the world had been sustaining his outlook for the two years he worked with the publisher and now, his dreams were being delayed further.  When we met with Brian, he remained undaunted by the disappointment but was guarded with his optimism.  We not only knew we could help Brian get his work published, we knew we could do it in only months!  His eBook went into Pre-Sale August 31, 2020 with the print version arriving mid-September, 2020!

Brian South grew up on a farm in the picturesque region of Crescent City, CA. His father’s abusive response to his mother’s mental illness led Brian into foster care. His experience showed Brian how the system fails so many children, by neglect, by limiting access to education and by failing to provide guidance or mentorship in their lives. This cultivated in him a deep concern for youth and a love of education.

Brian lives his passion for instructing, empowering, and inspiring students of all ages and walks of life to reach their full potential. He tutors, coaches, and advocates for college readiness by specific subject instruction, mentoring students in college entrance essays, admission interviews, and providing invaluable assistance in sourcing college funding for students.

Brian is a lifelong learner, a dedicated student of self- development, and a champion of youth. He passionately shares his training and certification in education, coaching, financial literacy, neuroscience, and sales to help his students open the door to the college of their choice. Brian lives in Sacramento, CA, with his fiancée, Nikki Myres.

Celebrating Authors

At Carnelian Moon Publishing, we are always celebrating!  We celebrate the first-time author who steps up and says, “I’m ready to write!”  And, the author who just completed their manuscript and is preparing to hand it over to our Editorial team.

We celebrate the author who just completed hours of editorial refinements and now waits patiently as our Book Design team works on their book’s interior layout and book cover design!

We celebrate when our authors prepare to release their book to the world, and we are there to help them through the butterflies, the doubts, the excitement, and the reality of sending a piece of them out to readers around the globe!

But, most of all, we celebrate our authors for taking the steps necessary to fulfill a dream they have, and one they may have had for many years!  We celebrate their boldness, their courage, their stick-to-it drive to be the author they KNOW deep inside they not only desire to be, but they deserve to be!

That is why we take our job so seriously.  We believe every author deserves to experience the journey of seeing their very own book in print, and that journey is one that deserves to be as blissful and as inspiring as it can be!

That’s why we invite YOU, the soon to be author, the new author, the seasoned author — no matter where you are in your journey right now — to speak with us to explore your authoring future with Carnelian Moon Publishing, Inc.
