Sorry for the shameless self-promotion, but I thought you might like to know that my new novel, Dirty Little Angels, is now available. Thought you might be interested since people have compared it to Flannery O'Connor, who I noticed was on your shelf. Here's a summary in case you're interested:

Set in the slums of New Orleans, among clusters of crack houses and abandoned buildings, Dirty Little Angels is the story of sixteen year old Hailey Trosclair. When the Trosclair family suffers a string of financial hardships and a miscarriage, Hailey finds herself looking to God to save her family. When her prayers go unanswered, Hailey puts her faith in Moses Watkins, a failed preacher and ex-con. Fascinated by Moses's lopsided view of religion, Hailey, and her brother Cyrus, begin spending time down at an abandoned bank that Moses plans to convert into a drive-through church. Gradually, though, Moses's twisted religious beliefs become increasingly more violent, and Hailey and Cyrus soon find themselves trapped in a world of danger and fear from which there may be no escape.

If you'd like to read the first chapter, you can read it here:

Take care,

Hi L.S. Potts - I tried to reply to your comment, but I couldn't figure out how to do it on your page - I must be librarything incompetent. Thank you for your input - I am definitely a fan of many southern authors. I've read everything (I think) by Walker Percy - my favorite being *The Last Gentleman* and also most of Flannery O'Connor - my favorite by her being *Wise Blood*. I'm currently ripping through a few Charles Williams books - I just picked him up a couple of months ago and have enjoyed immensely.

If you like Percy and O'Connor, I encourage you to check out southern authors Fred Chappell and George Garrett.

Happy Reading!
Hello! I always like to see people reading southern literature. It's some of the best, in my opinion. I expect you've read books by Walker Percy and Flannery O'Connor? I also match your liking for C.S. Lewis, Charles Williams, and Francis Schaeffer. As a born-and-bred southern librarian, I commend your good taste! Bye bye now.

Hi mrkurtz - thanks for the bookmark on my library. I saw some great looking southern lit. in yours - you might be interested in checking out some more Fred Chappell (one of my biggest favorites) and since you enjoy Robert Penn Warren, you might like George Garrett. Good Reading!
