Hope is coming back on Sunday, May 27th.

“I  just released Newberry Sin the end of April, the fourth Carolina Slade book, and I’ve been doing local signings for it. Had a great release party in Newberry, SC  itself. Had a ball. I also learned to capitalize on Chambers of Commerce for promotion. It’s helping making me a household name in the region. The local state congressman recently mentioned to me about my books, and I had no idea he knew I existed. A chamber has power.
I’m writing the crossover book, where Slade comes to Edisto and meets Callie.  It’ll be the 5th Edisto book. I’m on Chapter 13 hoping to complete it in two months. Fingers crossed for a Christmas release.
I stopped taking subscribers for TOTAL FundsforWriters, the paid subscription, because of time constraints and the fact I wanted to focus on one major newsletter that had a big impact. Will drop my income a bit, but I just flat needed the time and it was time for some revamping. Everyone needs to revamp their writing lives every year or two.

Hope is back with us in 2018.

Hope Clark was born and reared in the South, from Mississippi to South Carolina with a few stints in Alabama and Georgia. The granddaughter of a Mississippi cotton farmer, Hope holds a B.S. in Agriculture with honors from Clemson University and 25 years’ experience with the U. S. Department of Agriculture to include awards for her management, all of which enable her to talk the talk of Carolina Slade, the protagonist in most of her novels. Her love of writing, however, carried her up the ranks to the ability to retire young, and she left USDA to pen her stories and freelance.

Hope’s 4th Edisto book, Edisto Stranger, is on sale in ebook for $1.99 thru Jan 15.

The Edisto Island Mysteries: Destination Reading contains 4 published titles. She has just started writing Crossed on Edisto, a crossover book where Callie meets Slade.

The Carolina Slade Mysteries: Justice Her Way are 3 books strong.  Newberry Sin the 4th in the series is at her publisher.

On the Non-fiction front, FundsforWriters she plans to put out a couple of nonfiction books in 2018 – Finding Funds for Your Book, and The Best of FundsforWriters Vol 2. Hope is also thinking about writing a book on dialogue since she’s been a contributing writer for Southern Writers Magazine for over two years now, doing solely a column on dialogue.

Available for Pre-Order

Book Four in the series. A cold case heats up . . .

A dead man in Big Bay Creek, spring break, and a rogue FBI agent would be enough to drive Chief Callie Jean Morgan to drink . . . if she hadn’t already quietly crawled inside a bottle of gin to drown her sorrows over a life ripped apart by too many losses. When her investigation into the stranger’s death heats up an unsolved abduction case, Callie finds herself pitted against the town council, her son, the agent, and even the raucous college kids enjoying idyllic Edisto Beach. Amidst it all, Callie must find a way to reconcile her grief and her precious taste for gin before anyone else is killed.
