DRUM ROLL PLEASE!!! Here we GO!!

This girl right HERE
*points to self*
 is excited when she saw THIS
 *points to book cover*.
 
 
 
The nautical compass, the purity of the girl's presence, and the suttle coloring...
may I steal a line and say:
 "BAM!"
SPOT ON!

NOW, AS YOU EXHALE FROM SUCH A STUNNING COVER REVEAL, IMAGINE THIS:
 
The death of her beloved uncle, Randy Rankin, brings US Coast Guard Commander Taylor Campbell back to Texas to take care of his estate and find out if he really did bury his treasure. Jake Solomon’s job is to make sure Rankin’s killer doesn’t set his sights on CDR Campbell. Set along the Texas Gulf Coast, SOLOMON’S COMPASS is a story of love, loyalty, and the value of keeping a promise.
 
AND ALL OF THIS WONDERFUL-NESS IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE BEAUTIFUL:
Carol Kilgore is an award-winning author of several published short stories and many essays and articles. Solomon’s Compass is her second novel, a blend of mystery, suspense, and romance she calls Crime Fiction with a Kiss – always at least one crime; always a love story. Carol and her Coast Guard husband live in San Antonio, Texas, with two herding dogs that like nothing better than pack time on the patio.
You can find Carol here:
 
FAIR WINDS AND FOLLOWING SEAS, CAROL!!!

First, congratulations to Carol! The book sounds great.
And second, Tammy girl...you may want to fix the top two images, it looks like there's an image break, could be a problem on my end, though the last image looks fine, at least on my screen.

Melissa Bradley said...

Congrats* I hoped auto-correct on my iPad would catch that one for me. Sigh.

Tamara said...

Congrats to Carol!! The book sounds cool. I can see the image for the book (and I agree--beautiful cover) but not for Carol. Figured I'd give you the heads up, but I wouldn't worry about it. :) The book is the important part, right?

Carol Kilgore said...

All the images are good now. I was at a few blogs this morning where there were problems.

My cover designer outdid himself with this cover I think. I'm still in love with it myself :)

Thank you all for such great comments, and thank you, Tammy, for such a wonderful sharing of the Solomon's Compass cover.

Fair winds and following seas to all!

Tammy Theriault said...

Tammy : Your review for Carol and her book cover is exciting. I'm a fan of Carol's and always loved mysteries. I'll read her book, for sure. That cover is like a magnet.
Cheers to you and Carol.

R. Mac Wheeler said...

Okay, Tammy

Let's try your no-reply 'thing' from here (http://tammybr2.blogspot.com/) and see if it goes to the right profile.

On the top right of your blog, you should see 'Dashboard' right next to 'Sign Out'

Click the 'Dashboard' and then follow the other directions. Hopefully it'll go to your blogger profile and not your google+ profile.

If that doesn't work, you'll have to accept that you are cursed.

Have a happy day :O)

David P. King said...

Dang! That's awesome (cover and concept). Way to go, Carol! :)

Tina said...

Hi Tammy and hi Carol,

And just when the two of you thought life couldn't get any better, you my lucky humans, get a comment from me, yes me, Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar! *Points to paw and chases tail!*

I've been noticing Carol's book cover on a few other sites. Yes, when my dopey human sleeps, I do visit other sites.

Excellent book cover from an excellent award winning writer. Congrats and may you both continue to embrace the magic of the written word.

And Tammy, in case you don't subscribe to follow up comments on our not worth reading, hardly known blog, just thought you should know that my human or perhaps me, will mention you in our next list of gosh darn good writers.

Pawsitive wishes and doggy kisses, Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar! xx

Kelley Lynn said...
