Welcome Carol Kilgore

I'm proud to be a part of Carol's new book launch SOLOMON'S COMPASS.

A missing belt—her uncle’s prized possession. The lure of buried treasure. And a sexy former SEAL who makes U.S. Coast Guard Commander Taylor Campbell crazy. What more could any woman want. Right?

Taylor is in Rock Harbor, Texas, on a quest to unearth her uncle’s treasure—a journey far outside the realm of her real life. There’s one glitch. Taylor's certain the buried treasure was all in Uncle Randy's dementia-riddled mind. Now he’s dead.

Former SEAL Jake Solomon is in Rock Harbor under false pretenses to protect Taylor from the fate that befell her uncle and the other members of a tight circle of Coast Guardsmen called the Compass Points who served together on Point boats in Vietnam.

Jake is definitely not supposed to become involved with Taylor. That was his first mistake. Taylor is attracted to Jake as well, but she refuses to wait for him to locate the killer when she knows her plan will force her uncle’s murderer into action.

But the killer's actions are just what Jake is afraid of.

Carol Kilgore has always had stories and characters in her head, but she didn’t know she should write them down until about a dozen years ago. Once she started, she couldn’t stop.
Her first published short story won the Derringer Award for Best Short-Short Mystery. She continued to write short fiction for a few years and also enjoyed a small success as a freelancer before giving it all up for her true love—novels.
Carol writes a blend of mystery, suspense, and romance she calls Crime Fiction with a Kiss. Always at least one crime; always a love story. Solomon’s Compass is her second published novel.
As the wife of a Coast Guard officer, Carol has lived in locations across the U.S. She and her husband now live in a San Antonio suburb and share their home and patio with two active herding dogs that keep them free from all danger, real or imagined.

Thanks for participating in my cover reveal, Anne. the images didn't come up for me, but that may be an issue on my end.

I'm glad your tooth is tightening back up and the swelling is down :)

Anne Gallagher said...

Sorry about that Carol. I think I fixed the problem. It's all me. My computer is wonky today. Best of luck with your book launch.

No images yet. Thanks Anne for the introduction to this writer!

Bish Denham said...

Congratulations Carol! And... nope, no pictures.

Anne Gallagher said...

Sorry about the pictures. I've tried at least six different times to place them. My 'upload an image' thingy doesn't seem to be working the right way in Blogger today. cutting and pasting didn't work either.

sorry Carol.

I know blogger has been having image issues the last two days. I couldn't get any of my pics to upload.
BUT! I saw Carol's cover elsewhere and it is gorgeous!!

Jennifer Shirk said...

No images for me. But I've seen the cover and Carol so I'm good. :)

Ah, this one sounds GOOD, Carol! I forgot when this was coming out. I need to get you back on Over Coffee with it!

Herding dogs have a way of a...rounding you up and away from anything dangerous--real or imagined, lol!

Silly Blogger. Still no pics. But I can attest that the cover is awesome, because I've seen is lots of places around the blogosphere lately.

Best of luck to Carol! :)

I love seeing a book cover from one of our own covering the blogosphere! I wish Carol all the best with it! :)

Anne R. Allen said...

So that's why my images wouldn't upload on Sunday! Blogger seems to be suffering from a bad New Year's hangover. Congrats to Carole on the fascinating-sounding book!

Stina Lindenblatt said...

I love Carol's cover (I've seen it on other blogs). Those Navy Seals always make for great books. :)

I'm not seeing the images either and it's Fri evening PST. Good luck Carol! I like suspense.

Anne, noticed you have an Atwood quote in your banner. I'm reading Oryx and Crake now, and I'm liking it.

Hope you have a great weekend.
