  1. Hello Shonell:
    You are from my neck of the woods. I’m a new indie author seeking reviews and exposure for my novels. I would love to do an interview or have you review one of my books. You may be most interested in Tangled, a Southern Gothic Yarn because it takes place north of Galveston and ventures slightly into New Orleans. My bio: Phyllis H. Moore is an emerging author. She has a Master’s Degree in Social Work, and is currently retired from the field after thirty years. Following retirement, she owned and operated a bed and breakfast with her husband in a small, historic community in south Texas. Her combined careers, gave her inspiration for several fiction stories, and the writing began. Phyllis has been published in online literary journals, Fiction Southeast, and the Yellow Chair Review.

    Phyllis lives on a small ranch in south Texas with her husband and their adopted terrier, Ollie Bubba. She enjoys reading writing, travel, gardening and spending time in her second home on Galveston Island, Texas, visiting her adult children, Phillip, Sarah and Walter.

    Tangled Synopsis: A southern family saga emerges as twenty one year old Annette “Nettie” Roberta Randall begins a journey of self-discovery. The perception and sensitivity she relied on to bolster her through an isolated childhood have disappeared and with them her sense of self. She struggles daily with her dysfunctional family and the mysteries that whisper to her in their eccentric family home. Alcohol induced monologues by her mother, Delores Cecelia, “DeCe” provide glimpses. However, DeCe lost herself long before Nettie was born, and she buried her secrets so deep, they are tangled in her own confusion. Pup, Nettie’s peculiar uncle, has some insight, but he has been silenced by fears darker than DeCe or Nettie can imagine.

    Happy to send an ARC if you think it is something you might want to consider. Thank you for your time.
