FastPencil Wavecrest/Old Stone Press Launches Holiday Title "The Legend of Chris Moose"

CAMPBELL, Calif., Oct. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today FastPencil announced the launch of "The Legend of Chris Moose: A Christmas Story," a fun-filled holiday tale by Allen Northcutt, with illustrations by renowned artist Christie Morris. The book is through FastPencil's Wavecrest imprint (in partnership with Old Stone Press of Louisville, Ky.), which offers services and bookstore exposure to writers with strong community followings.

"The Legend of Chris Moose" is a tale of 11 friends who love Ugly, an amiable but tattered moose. A Christmas Eve party at Momma and Poppa Bears' house ends with Ugly saving the day and being renamed Chris Moose because the name sounds like Christmas, which is what Chris' spirit is all about.

Northcutt is a first-time author, highly decorated U.S. Marine Corps fighter pilot, Vietnam War veteran and retired investment banker.

"Allen started writing 'Chris Moose' on Christmas in 1982 while raising a child with learning disabilities," said Steve Wilson, FastPencil CEO and co-founder. "With encouragement from friends and family, Allen published it 29 years later. FastPencil is thrilled to bring Chris Moose to life."

Pricing and Availability
"The Legend of Chris Moose" is available today in hardcover for $17.95 through the FastPencil Marketplace,, and in ebook for $5.99 through major e-retailers, including Barnes and Noble and Amazon.
