SpearPoint Publications was incorporated in Oregon in 2015 by Howard Schneider and Redwood La Chapel (writing under the pen name of Mizeta Moon).
The Company’s first project was the 2015 publication of Snapshots: Flash Stories From Random Lives, by Howard Schneider and Mizeta Moon. Since then, SpearPoint has published 10 books, all of which are available in e-book and paperback formats at multiple online book sellers.
Links to purchasing these books are listed on the "Purchase Books" page of this site.
This website will be the company’s primary mode of communication, and will list and describe current and past publications, as well as announcing upcoming readings and new issues. Check out the Calendar for new events.
