Returning to My North Carolina Southern Roots, This Spring!

In the theme of the Spring 2016 Okra Picks 

My personal list of favorites from the April-June list (below)--
those included on my personal JDCMustReadBooks' List.  

 

 

A Charlotte, North Carolina native,
LOVE reading Southern books,

especially with some of the top authors from my home state!

 

Having lived and worked in the southeast my entire life: NC, SC, GA, FL----
spending time in the beautiful mountains and coastal regions-
with family still in NC/SC areas ---have many fond memories.


I LOVE Southern Authors and continue to support them.

The South produces the "Best Writers"...(Gems) Don't you agree?

 

Join Me, in congrats to this list of fine
Okra Spring Picks for 2016! 

Be sure and add to your TBR list.  

Pack Your Bag and head South, or in my case, North!

All the picks have a strong Southern focus and are publishing between April and June, 2016, and all have fans among Southern indie booksellers; people who are always looking out for the next great writer who should be on your plate and in your TBR stack. So the next time you visit your local Southern indie bookstore, expect someone to hand you one and say, “You’ve got to read this!” Read them before they hit the bestseller lists and impress your friends with your impeccable taste and literary savvy!
