The Reviews Are Coming In...

As you may know I published the first in my Madison Knight mystery series TIES THAT BIND toward the end of May this year.  The feedback has been terrific.  Here's a look at some reviews:
"Reminds me of JD Robb's In Death series." - Amazon
"The writing is tremendous and the character, Madison Knight, is great." - Amazon 
"I found myself drawn in very quickly and couldn't wait to find out what happens next. I was impressed with the character and relationship building. Ties That Bind was easy-flowing, realistic and even humourous." - Amazon
"The plot moves right along with all the vagaries of life one would expect of the genre, building to an inevitable conclusion that will satisfy." - Amazon 
"This is a great read for those who enjoy detective novels and chronological play-out, oh, and the excellent twists of skilled writers." - Amazon
"I just finished the book and want to thank you for it!  Totally enjoyable, what a refreshing change from having to wait until at least 2/3 of the book for the action to start." - Website feedback form
"Carolyn Arnold pulls you into the world of Madison Knight and doesn't release you until the very end. I found myself unable to stop reading this book. A must read for the mystery fan. You will fall in love with Madison Knight." - Goodreads
First off thank you to those who have read my book!  Without you, the readers, there wouldn't be any point!  I also thank those of you who have taken the time to contact me either through my website or by giving me feedback on Amazon or Goodreads. 

In addition to written feedback verbal buzz has been generated and people are eagerly awaiting the second in the series JUSTIFIED.  They want more of Madison Knight!  And I intend to give it to them!  December 2011 will see the release of the second in the series.  Stay posted to this blog for a "sneak peak" or purchase the paperback version which includes this.

Today TIES THAT BIND is receiving another great review on Writing on the Rocks.  Be sure to check it out.  You can also qualify for a chance to win an e-book copy.  Check out the post for details.

Or if you're not feeling so lucky, and you'd rather just buy your copy of TIES THAT BIND, it is available on Amazon and Smashwords.  If you're a Kindle owner and will be purchasing it in this format, it also available for Kindlegraph.

Once again thank you for your readership and support.
