Square One Publishers, Inc. takes great pleasure in announcing its acquisition of novelist James A. Misko’s first four novels, originally published through Northwest Venture Press. A fifth novel, entitled The Path of the Wind, will be published for the first time by Square One in February 2017. Although Square One’s primary editorial focus has been based to date on non-fiction titles, the addition of Misko’s beautifully written works will now allow Square One to reach an entirely new audience.
Square One’s publisher, Rudy Shur, worked with Jim before on a successful non-fiction book a number of years ago titled How to Finance Any Real Estate, Any Place, Any Time. As a way to keep in touch with Shur since that book’s publication, Jim sent him complimentary copies of his novels. “When I received his fourth and most recent work, As All My Fathers Were,” Shur said, “I knew it was time to expand my company’s horizons, and I knew who the right author would be. In reading Jim’s titles, I find that his books are finely written in the story-telling tradition of John Steinbeck, Willa Cather, and Ernest Hemingway. Like those justly celebrated authors in our country’s history, Jim’s books draw upon the rugged spirit of independent men and women who live in rural America, where people forge their lives in the spirit of adventure and with an inborn strength of endurance. It is no wonder that As All My Fathers Were  was the recipient of four top writer’s awards.”
As an active author, Jim will be cross-crossing the country, signing his titles in bookstores, lecturing, and enjoying an occasional Scotch in the evenings—single malt, of course.
All four of Misko’s novels will be available through Square One beginning November 1, 2016. In February 2017, Square One will publish James Misko’s fifth novel, The Path of the Wind.
