“The intricacy of the relationships is incredible.”

Hello friends, We did it! My publicist, the wonderful Denise Cassino, through her ingenious use of tweets, brought me to Best Seller status in 6 days! This image is one of many used in the launch. I can’t speak highly enough of her competence, friendliness and ease to work with. If you need a publicist, let me know.

Happy Reading!

I’m just over half way through my launch week to make Mother Lode a best seller on Amazon. I’ve already achieved that status, but would like to get to #1 Best Seller. Check out my tweets on Twitter, and see all the wonderful images/text boxes my publicist and I have created. We want to get to #1 Best Seller. Can you help me? Thanks, Carol

My launch on Twitter,  for MOTHER LODE,which my publicist is handling will begin this Wednesday, April 26th. It will run for six days, with a lot of neat images/texts to see. I’m excited about this, and I hope you will watch, and maybe, buy MOTHER LODE. Help me get to Best Seller status!

Remember ‘Mother Lode’?


I’ve never done much with publicity, and most of my sales have occurred when I do readings, at book stores, etc. And I’ve been a penny-pincher when it comes to spending money on publicity, but recently I’ve hired someone to do a barrage of tweets that will be released in a short period of time, in hopes of making Mother Lode a bestseller! Apparently this system works–or your money back! Keep watching, and I’ll let you know when to look for the tweets.

After much ado,  I have completed my new novel, A SLEUTH IN SAN RAFAEL. I use the word ‘completed’ loosely; it still needs editing. Five beta readers are tackling it now. I finally discovered a text to screen program that is most useful. It helped me discover many typos and missing words that I didn’t catch reading it. If you’re a writer I strongly recommend it.

The book is in the Gwen Harris series. Remember A SLEUTH IN SAUSALITO? My new book follows that one. If you enjoyed the first, you’re sure to like this one.

Hi everyone,

I’m almost finished with the first draft of my fourth novel–another mystery. So I don’t think it’s too soon to start telling you about it. If you read A SLEUTH IN SAUSALITO, you know Gwen Harris, the reluctant sleuth. Well, she’s here again in A SLEUTH IN SAN RAFAEL. This time she gets involved with murders in a retirement home, where her old friend Megan (now widowed) is living.  Narrow escapes, a wretched co-worker, a new romance and trouble with the law are some of the things she has to deal with. I hope when it comes out you’ll be eager to read it!

Happy Holidays,

Carol Sheldon
