First Sentence Fridays and FREE BOOK Friday!

Happy Friday, reader friends! I’m glad you’re here! 

One of the rules of privately owned labor camps is that the owners could do as they wished when it came to their workers. It was documented that if someone in the camp tried to escape, because of the brutal work conditions, because of the debt they could never re-pay, or because they simply wanted to get out, if they owed money, the owner could pursue them as they wished, and the law would turn their eyes away.


Chapter 26

Though no one said a word about it, the distant baying of the hounds in the swamp told the camp someone was being hunted.



For a chance to win an ARC of The Saints of Swallow Hill this week. . .

Tag your reader friends on Facebook, Twitter, and share out this post!

Along with an ARC, I’m giving away another t-shirt this week! (size L only) As mentioned last week, the shirt has the first stanza of the North Carolina state toast on it, which says:

“Here’s to the land of the longleaf pine,

The summer land, where the sun doth shine,

where the weak grown strong, and the strong grow great,

Here’s to downhome, the Old North state!”

As always, a winner will be randomly selected and announced on Monday!



Are you a NetGalley reviewer? The Saints of Swallow Hill is available for request! I’ve started seeing a few reviews. It’s so exciting to read what people are saying about the book!


Last, but not least, don’t forget to:

Pre-order a copy!

You might win a copy, but, you can always give away one as a gift! 🙂
