Book News

I can’t believe I’ve neglected my website! It was APRIL the last time I posted, and for that, I apologize!

It’s been very busy at the Merrick household: my youngest graduated from college and moved home, school (for my husband) has been winding down for the summer, and something either family-, work-, or book-related every weekend!

I reported on my first book-signing at my own library where I’m the director. Since then, I’ve had three more! Here’s some pics and some special folks!

Hickman County Memorial Libary – Library Directors Rock!! Molly Gannon (Fulton Co. Public Library), myself (Crittenden Co. Public Library) Laura Poole (Hickman Co.  Memorial Library), Mary Silgals (Ballard/Carlisle Public Library)


Graves County Public Library – a Family Affair!  L-R MariAnne Merrick Rentfro (niece) Barbara Merrick (sister-in-law), Margaret Merrick (mother-in-law), Todd Merrick (husband), and Me!


George Coon Public Library in Princeton, KY – my good friend Rhonda Merrick Holt and me! (and why I didn’t move my purse is beyond me! lol!)

So yes, it’s been busy, and yes, I have started on the second book of the “Southern Breeze Series,” and the working title is Carolina Mercy. I hope to have it out next Spring!!

Oh! I almost forgot!!! If you follow my Instagram, you’ll know this, but if not, I’ll have to tell you my random excitement of the recent past – I MET R. L. STINE!! Yes, the famous “Goosebumps” author was at the Kentucky Public Library Association conference! He was wonderful. A great speaker, very humble and self-deprecating, and very approachable! My oldest daughter, in NYC, was finally envious of ME! LOL!

Me, with R. L. STINE!!!

Keep praying for writing time! I’m about 12,000 words ahead in Carolina Mercy, and I need to get it close to 70,000!

Also, if you have read Carolina Dream, please consider leaving a review on Amazon! If you bought it from me, there is a place to indicate “purchased from the author.” Reviews are important in getting the word out about my books!

Thanks for reading, and have a blessed day!
