Welcome to the website of Charlsie Russell and Loblolly Writers House, author and home of historical mystery and suspense set in Mississippi. Each novel offers readers a complimentary sojourn in Southern history, replete with a sensual romance.
Good Lord willing and UPS not breaking down, I should have my newest novel, Honors Banner, for sale 13-15 November at Christmas City at the Coliseum in Biloxi.
For those of you unfamiliar with my work, Honors Banner is the sequel to my fifth novel, Camellia Creek, a Southern Gothic set in the fall of 1865 during the closing weeks of Presidential Reconstruction. Honors Banner furthers Marine Corps major Seth Parkers investigation into the murder of Treasury operative Alan Guthrie, unresolved at the end of Camellia Creek. The two novels combine to create a saga rich in history, mystery, and suspense, all spiced with romance. They are written by a Southerner and are decidedly and unapologetically pro-Southern in theme.
Ill be at booth 34, not far from the entrance and am offering a deal on both books for $25.00 (a $32.00 value). I will also have a couple of gift baskets made for those readers on your Christmas list.
Right now, you can order the trade paperback through me (email me) or you can order it through any bookstoreits in the system.
I have not completed formatting the Kindle/epub version of Honors Banner, so it is not yet available to my digital readers and for that I apologize, but it will be done soon in conjunction with a formal launch of the book.
Camellia Creek is available in Kindle format and print at Amazon and, for retailers, through Lightning Source. It can be purchased in any digital format through Smashwords. The print version of the book can also be ordered through this website (contact) and signed by the author per the buyers request.
All six of my books are available for print on demand from Lightning Source. That means readers can walk into any bookstore across the nation and ask the proprietor to order them. Book buyers please visit my Book Buyers page.

In addition to the stores referenced above, which routinely take and sell my books, I have broached a number of other independent book stores across the state that have taken copies of my books on a trial basis. Link to my Buy Books Page to see who they are, and if youre in the vicinity of one of those stores, consider approaching the buyer and requesting one of my books. And, again, I hope that in the near future, considering my new affiliation with Lightning Source printing, all my books will be available through the big chain stores. Right now, interested readers should be able to order Rivers Bend through their local chain anywhere in the country.
