I’m glad you came to visit. I’m Sheri Cobb South, author of more than twenty novels in a variety of genres ranging from Regency romance to young adult to historical mystery.

Let me say a big "Thank you!" to all those who nominated my romantic suspense novel, Moon over the Mediterranean, on Kindle Scout! By now you will have gotten word that it was not selected for publication, but the Kindle editorial team kept for ten days before making that decision--a full week longer than the 2-3 day review that seems to be more typical, which suggests to me that they at least gave it a good hard look, and that ultimately it wasn't the quality of the writing but my lack of social media savvy that worked against me.

You'll still have a chance to buy and read this book, however. I'll be releasing it independently this summer in both trade paperback and ebook formats. There might even be an audiobook edition as well. In the meantime, I hope you'll enjoy this Pinterest page featuring pictures of the places--and fashions!--described in this book, many of which are photos I took while on the cruise that inspired it.

And Available Now, FOR DEADER OR WORSE, Book 6 in the John Pickett mystery series!

For Deader or Worse

"Affairs of the heart, both honorable and ignoble, take center stage in South's touching sixth Regency-era mystery...[Especially] winning is the depiction of a marriage made not for family or financial advantage but for true love, and the deepening of that love amid all manner of obstacles." --Publishers Weekly

The John Pickett mysteries are coming out in audio! John Pickett, Mr. Colquhoun, and yes, even Julia, Lady Fieldhurst, are brought vividly to life by the amazing Joel Froomkin--who won an Earphones Award from Audiofile for his work on the prequel novella, Pickpocket's Apprentice!
