On May 15, 2023, A Southern Girl will turn nine. Since its publication in 2014, readers have been generous in their praise and in their purchases, as thousands have been sold in hardcover, paperback, ebooks and audio. The late, great Pat Conroy would be proud, as it was the first novel published by Story River Books, the imprint he edited for the University of South Carolina Press. Pat predicted the success the book has enjoyed, and I feel sure he keeps a copy close at hand in the library of the hereafter where he spends his time. 


And soon I'll add a new title to my list, so check back for news of a legal thriller to be published in April 2023.
