Hats Off! to Heather Bell Adams whose novel The Good Luck Stone (Haywire Books, 2020) was favorably reviewed in Southern Literary Review. "The Good Luck Stone is a story filled with the history of the war in the Pacific theater, a history less often told than that of the European theater," says reviewer Donna Meredith. "A story of excruciating loss and noble sacrifice. A story of the guilt survivors often bury deep within their hearts. A story well worth reading."


Hats Off! to Thomas Wolf whose book The Called Shot: Babe Ruth, the Chicago Cubs, and the Unforgettable Major League Baseball Season of 1932 (University of Nebraska, 2020) was named a "Best Baseball Book of 2020" by Sports Collectors Digest. "In an era of 16 teams, day baseball, and social upheaval, Babe Ruth, Rogers Hornsby, and Jimmie Foxx were heroes to millions glued to radio and newspapers. Historian Tom Wolf even says Ruth called his shot twice—including the legendary blow in the 1932 World Series."


Hats Off! to Dolly Sickles, aka Becky Moore, whose new novel, Mine by Design, was featured in the Chatham News + Record. Sickles is an adjunct instructor in the continuing education Creative Writing Programs for Wake Technical Community College and Central Carolina Community College. Her political, romantic suspense releases February 3.
