The Coming of Summer
Charlie's Corner Cafe
Summer is once again headed our way and as you may have noticed, Small Town Lies has not been released yet. These things happen in the publishing world and while it is available for pre-order, I am not certain of the actual date of release, although I am hoping for August. It will be worth the wait if you’re in the mood for a fun story with characters that you can embrace in a town that I think you will thoroughly enjoy.
With that said, I was finally inspired to write a new short story for the first time in ages. “Flight Delay” has a touch of whimsy that should be appealing.
I’ve just finished what should be my last trip until October and the summer is shaping up to be filled with a variety of tasks that run the gamut from helping work on a couple of websites to an interesting project with young entrepreneurs that I will explain more about later. I don’t have quite enough details yet.
Ah, on the scuba novel side, False Front is in for editing and I think that will be out in October. It is the second of the Chris Green novels and I admit it is edgier than my others. It is an intriguing story though with some additional complexities of both plot and characters. It takes place predominantly in Houston and Galveston, although there is an early stop in Belize.
I will keep you posted as to progress and if you haven’t done so already, do check out Charlie’s Corner Café where I pop in every other day with a post.
Small Town Lies, the first of the Helen Crowder Adventures, is available for pre-order from Amazon.com, BN.com, and Books-A-Million for $14.95 (or ask your favorite book store to order it). The book will also be released in audio format.
Previews of Small Town Lies
“Small Town Lies is a wonderful book. I downloaded it to my Nook and could not put it down once I started. I love the small town setting and the different way the characters react to the news of the murder. I did not see that ending coming. As far as the quilting, I read those areas very slowly to look for anything that might not quite ring true. It was pretty much dead on. Charlie did a good job depicting the craft. Thanks for the great read!”

“Charlie transports the reader into the middle of the lives of delightfully eccentric residents of a small southern town. She expertly weaves a murder mystery while making the reader yearn to be part of the story. The reader finishes "Small Town Lies" with reluctance because the characters and the town of Wallington have become old friends and will be missed!”
