They say change is good. Well, I’m not too sure about that, but I’ve got a change for you anyway. A couple of weeks ago I posted that the title of my new book, the one I’m presently working on, was going to be titled LOW TIDE. Things have changed. As I progress, and as the book evolves, I’ve decide that the title needs to change as well. Therefore, the new title will be TICKLE CHAIN. Those of you familiar with fishing and shrimping know what a tickle chain is, it is the beads of metal at the bottom of a net that tickles the sand as the net is drawn across it and encourages the shrimp to “pop” into the net. It also weights the net down.

There it is-change. I’ll be posting excerpt from TICKLE CHAIN periodically. I welcome any comments. Thanks, Carol

    Its been years since I read a full book. Everyone talks about binge watching various TV series, however, I’ve found myself binge reading your books this past year. Making multiple trips to the Quatermoon to stock up, I’ve got one left to achive, Plum Duff. I’m counting the days until Feb 12 when our bookstore reopens.

    Hi there! Renee from Surf City here. I have bought all your books from you at the weekly festivals in Surf City and/or down at Topsail. Is your new book out in the murder series with Estelle? If so, I WANT it! Going to Surf City this weekend. If it is out, where can I pick it up? You have signed all my books; sure would like this to continue! You are the best!
