New Children's Author Holly Moulder Coming to CABSE
     There have been so many books published by Coweta authors that it is becoming difficult to keep up with all of them!  The Co-ordinator of the Coweta Authors Book Signing Extravaganza (CABSE), who has the job of inviting all Coweta authors of a published book to attend, has just discovered another one, first time author Holly Moulder of Sharpsburg.  Moulder, a former teacher at White Oak Elementary School, quit teaching in order to write a delightful book for children, Eyes of the Calusa.
    There will be 21 Coweta writers participating in the CABSE, which will give the public an opportunity to meet them, talk with them about their writing, and acquire an autographed copy of their books.  The CABSE will be a special feature of the New Grantville Days Festival, which will be held the third weekend of September.  The hours of the CABSE are 10 AM thru 5 PM on Saturday September 15 and 12 Noon thru 5 PM on Sunday September 16.  Info on the CABSE is available from Forrest Schultz at 770-583-3258 or  Info on the New Grantville Days Festival, formerly called Grantville Day, is available at

   Book News from White Pelican Press!           
White Pelican Press announces the February 2007 release of "Eyes of the Calusa" by Sharpsburg resident and former Coweta County teacher Holly Moulder.  This innovative work of historical fiction is written for middle grade readers, and can be read for individual enjoyment or used for classroom instruction.  Mrs. Moulder has designed a classroom guide based on the new Georgia Performance Standards to make her novel very teacher friendly.
Meticulously researched and creatively written, the story provides a fresh perspective into the lives and events of the opening years of the 18th century.  The story begins in 1720 on the Golden Coast of Southwest Florida where fierce Calusa Indians ruled their mighty empire.  Pirates patrolled the area, looking for Indians to capture and sell in the slave auctions of Charles Town, S.C.
One evening as the Calusa girl Mara, and her little sister search the shoreline for a lost toy, pirates come ashore seeking human treasure.  Mara is kidnapped and dragged aboard Captain Hannah Dunne's pirate frigate, The Devil Ray.  In the months that follow, Mara's journey takes her far from her Calusa home to the slave quarters of an indigo plantation in the lowlands of South Carolina.  Along the way, Mara uses the ancient powers of the Calusas to calm a terrible storm at sea.  She is taken to a pirate hideout where she learns about the infamous Blackbeard.  Later on the plantation, she uncovers secret plans for a slave rebellion and is forced to make desperate choices. Finally, Mara makes the most important discovery of all:  the value of her own freedom.
Mrs. Moulder will be conducting book signings at locales throughout the area.  She is scheduled to make multi-media presentations about her novel and the writing process at elementary schools in Coweta County and in Florida.
Copies of "Eyes of the Calusa" are available through the author at the address above.  The novel will also be available soon through
