Since this blog was created in 2008, we have attempted to bring readers timely information on novels set in the Tar Heel State. Our focus has been on recently published novels from the full range of publishing houses, and even self-published novels as we became aware of those works. As time permitted, we added information on older novels set in North Carolina so that the blog could function as a source of information on North Carolina novels across the decades.
The blog posts were created chiefly by one staff member and a series of talented graduate students. Now all those graduate students have gone on to their careers and the staff member has retired. Readers who have grown used to our twice weekly posts will be disappointed because the appearance of new posts will be unpredictable until a new staff member is hired later this year. But the blog will not be stagnant if authors and readers continue to share news of new novels and comments about their favorite North Carolina novels. In this interim, while we await a new staff member, let’s hear from you. Let this be your season.
