The Ramblin Scribe

Sylvia Nickels writes the stories her characters tell her.


I can't believe the first month of 2018 is gone already. Not a productive month for me as a rule, and for some reason even less productive this year. Both January and February have unhappy connotations for me, but it usually doesn't hit me so hard. Feeling brighter so hopefully can get the editing done on my third Cam Locke adventure and get it out the door. I hope future readers like it as much as critique readers did, though they had plenty of small editing suggestions to make it better! Taylor was right, the case certainly put some pressure on Cam Locke, Private Investigator.

If you miss the slider above these paragraphs, I removed it because I need to reissue the first two Cam Locke novels with new covers. The rights to them have reverted back to me and I need to get them republished. Hopefully before too long.

The new edition of the first Royce Thorne novel has been released by The Wild Rose Press.
When Royce Thorne's policeman husband was killed in the line of duty, her life changed in more ways than is usual for a widow. But there were compensations, as readers will discover.
Check it out and if you haven't read it, try it out!

Another novel now available on Smashwords, maybe soon on Amazon is Sweetwater Deception. This one is set in Georgia, where I grew up. The book was one I did a first draft for during November 2016's National Novel Writing Month, often referred to as NaNoWriMo. The main character in Sweetwater, Dana Pennington Kenyon, is also a Georgia native who must confront secrets from her past when she returns to the farm where she grew up. I don't anticipate that it will turn into another series, but who knows? Watch for it in online venues!
