â€&lsqauo;â€&lsqauo;â€&lsqauo;â€&lsqauo;â€&lsqauo;â€&lsqauo;â€&lsqauo;"Carol Sheldon is a master story-teller. The historic details, the film noir atmosphere, and the gradual revelations of each of the characters and their motivations are superb. From the first foreboding moment to the startling conclusion, this is a true page turner. I could not put it down." . . Vicki Weiland, book doctor.

MOTHER LODE was a finalist in fiction in the 2012 Amazon International Contest. It is a psychological mystery set in a Michigan mining town at the turn of the 20th century. Sheriff Foster tries to uncover the mysterious death of a town woman whose nineteen year old son is in jail as a suspect. What he discovers is shockingâ€"about the mother-son relationship. What he does with this knowledge is both ingenious and affirming.

"The memorable characters (Sheriff Foster, Jorie Radcliff and his mother Catherine) in Mother Lode by Carol Sheldon pulled me into the story-world and I did not want to leave them. I encourage writers to study this novel and learn Ms. Sheldon's (also she's a playwright) page-turning techniques. From first hook to crisis, to climax, to resolution--all beautifully plotted and narrated. Mother-Son relationship--edgy, innocent or guilty? Stunning story. What a reading experience!" . . .Teresa LeYung-Ryan, story-consultant and writer's platform-building coach; author of Love Made of Heart and of Writer's Platform & Fanbase In 22 Days.


Mother Lode is a compelling novel and much more than a simple mystery. It's an absorbing tale of family, dreams, death and desire in which a young man named Jorie and his bizarre and complex relationship with his mother. It's a good page-turning puzzler or a complex study of human nature.

"Ms. Carol Sheldon, in her wonderful novel, Mother Lode, creates a world of harsh winters filled with tragedy and hope. She explores many of the darker areas of children who are forced to grow up under the fearful mercies of their parents and the introverted communities they live in. It is a story of love and pain, of excess, and of secrets. I enjoyed this book. The writing is excellent and the story telling is even better." . . Gregory C. Randall, author of thrillers, novels and non-fiction.


Was Catherine’s mysterious death a horrible accident â€" or was it murder? MOTHER LODE is a psychological mystery set in the late 1800s during the heyday of copper mining in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. A rough frontier state, the story deals with dark secrets and twisted passions that lie as deeply below the surface as the copper this community thrives on. Sheriff Foster tries to uncover the mysterious death of a town woman whose nineteen-year old son is in jail as a suspect. What he discovers is shocking-about the mother-son relationship. What he does with this knowledge is both ingenious and affirming.

Ampersands: Pretty Is as Pretty Does

By Carolyn Howard-Johnson
Author of the multi award-winning HowToDoItFrugally Series of books for writers Have you noticed how ampersands turn to gibberish when they are entered into some blog services like Google's blogpsot.com? That is only the beginning of problems ampersands cause for editors, and publishers of all kinds. Many of the difficulties they cause go unnoticed except by the publishing pros we would all like to impress like agents, librarians, bookstore event directors, and the acquisition editors at Knopf!  That's why I added a new section to the second edition of the winningest book in my #HowToDoItFrugally Series of books for writers, The Frugal Editor. Because ampersands seem to be so popular these days, it's especially important for editors and authors who publish books to know a little about their history, how to use them, and how gatekeepers and readers of Lynn Truss's famous zero-tolerance approach to grammar might view them. So, I thought I'd s…
