My new standalone historical, GOOD TIME COMING, has received a wonderful review from Publishers Weekly. Here are a few excerpts (I'm not printing the entire thing because I thought it gave away a bit too much of the story):

In a distinct departure from her popular Sebastian St. Cyr mystery series, Harris tells a powerful story of war's destruction of property, people, hopes and morals during the Civil War in Louisiana. This is top-notch historical fiction, thoroughly researched and vividly presented, revealing the Civil War in all its brutality. . . 

. . . an excellent story, full of suspense and historical detail.

I've also received a starred review from Booklist, but I can't put that up until it's officially out on November 15.

AND while I'm still waiting for final approval from New York, I think I may have a title of Sebastian #13: Why Not the Innocent?

Congratulations on the amazing reviews! You are getting them so regularly these days, they might feel like routine LOL.

LOVE the title "Why not the innocent." I find it extremely evocative , promising a combination of gothic drama and pertinent social commentary.

Hope everyone's health continues to improve.

This may be the wrong place for this comment, But I am fully for the books coming out in all types of editions/formats. For one thing as a reader who reads from my quite wonderful library in Portland OR, I think multiple formats for a title helps libraries order.
Although this series is strongly popular, I like to see new authors get a chance. And I like the idea of new readers of this series to be able to pick up a less expensive edition in a store to try it. So more is better.
The one problem I have run into but not with this series, St Cyr, is when something in published in e format only. But that is a library issue usually, finding the first books are in book form, then suddenly the next is in e format. .

Hi candy. I'm getting my hard copy from amazon thus week, but I had also put in a request at king county library order it for me. I just got confirmation they ordered 8 copies. Huzzah!!! Sabena

Karla, yes, I'm all for books coming out in as many formats as possible. It's hard on authors when publishers drop the print versions of their books. I personally don't like ebooks because I read last thing at night and the blue light from electronic devices keeps me awake. So I have a "no TV, iPhone, or computer after 9pm" rule.

Sabena, Good heavens! Thanks so much!
