Meet New York Times Bestselling Southern Author and Reader Favorite Karen White



New York Times bestselling author Karen White invites you to explore the brick-walked streets of Charleston in The Guests on South Battery (NAL, hardcover, $26.00, on sale 1/10/17), where historic mansions house the memories of years gone by, and restless spirits refuse to fade away. Ms. White will be discussing this new addition to her Tradd Street series at a book talk and signing, on Monday, January 23rd, at 2:00pm at Fiction Addiction. After her talk, she will take questions from the audience and sign and personalize books.


There are two ticket options for this event: The $28.00 ticket guarantees a seat, admits one to the event, and includes one copy of The Guests on South Battery. The $10.00 ticket is standing room only, admits one to the event, and includes a $10.00 voucher that can be redeemed at the event. If seats do not sell out, we will seat standing room customers in the order they signed up. Tickets and books can be purchased online, at the store, or by calling Fiction Addiction at 864-675-0540.


With her extended maternity leave at its end, Melanie Trenholm is less than thrilled to leave her new husband and beautiful twins to return to work, especially when she's awoken by a phone call with no voice on the other end -- and the uneasy feeling that the ghostly apparitions that have stayed silent for more than a year are about to invade her life once more.


But her return to the realty office goes better than she could have hoped, with a new client eager to sell the home she recently inherited on South Battery. Most would treasure living in one of the grandest old homes in the famous historic district of Charleston, but Jayne Smith would rather sell hers as soon as possible, guaranteeing Melanie a quick commission.


Despite her stroke of luck, Melanie can't deny that spirits -- both malevolent and benign -- have started to show themselves to her again. One is shrouded from sight, but appears whenever Jayne is near. Another arrives when an old cistern is discovered in Melanie's backyard on Tradd Street.


Melanie knows nothing good can come from unearthing the past. But some secrets refuse to stay buried....



About the author:

Karen White's first novel, In the Shadow of the Moon, was published in August 2000. Her books have since been nominated for numerous national contests including Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance (SIBA) Fiction Book of the Year, and has twice won the National Readers' Choice Award. Karen is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author and currently writes what she refers to as "grit lit" -- Southern women's fiction -- and has also expanded her horizons into writing the Tradd Street mystery series set in Charleston, South Carolina. The Guests on South Battery is her 21st novel.


Karen hails from a long line of Southerners but spent most of her growing up years in London, England. When not writing, she spends her time reading, scrapbooking, playing piano, and avoiding cooking. She currently lives near Atlanta, Georgia, with her husband and two children, and two spoiled Havanese dogs.
