FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Tolar Miles, author with flair for all things southern, releases second novel with TouchPoint Press

PANAMA CITY BEACH, FL, OCTOBER 14, 2014—Tolar Miles, Florida-based author who entertained readers with a nostalgic look at the charm of the south in her debut novel Mud Marbles, has done it again with her second title, Delta.

Readers of Mud Marbles will remember Delta, a distant cousin of the Drake family who comes to visit Cotton Tree from Savannah, Georgia for most family gatherings. Cousin Delta does not shy away from confrontation and will speak her mind even to the pastor of the First Baptist Church. She loves her bourbon and cola and livens up the atmosphere of every social event she attends. Boring would never be a word used to describe Delta Bulloch and her friends.

As soon as Delta hears of a possible murder, the memorable road trips begin. During Delta’s adventures, there are a few people who would prefer she disappear. Delta manages to maintain her Southern wit and charm through it all.

Readers will be introduced to the handsome Calvin Sherman, from New Orleans who Delta refers to as “The Devil.” Miss Mincy, who is possibly the most loved character from the book Mud Marbles, makes a few appearances and gives her advice as Delta visits her family in Cotton Tree, Alabama.


As active members of Savannah’s Garden Club, Delta and Betsey keep things lively at the monthly meetings, and, like most Southern households, hospitality abounds.  Delta’s hospitality extends beyond the cocktail shaker. She has help with her hospitality as she frequents the famous River Street Sweets® of Savannah, Georgia. She loves everything they offer, but her favorite is their Praline pound cake. Her son Mason has labeled River Street Sweets® as the best candy store in the whole wide world.


The author invites readers to join Delta, Maelynn, and Betsey as they travel through the historic cities of Savannah, New Orleans, and all the way down to Key West, where Delta and Maelynn jump ship onto another adventure.

Delta is available in paperback and as an ebook, available through major retailers including Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books-a-Million, iTunes, and more.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

A humorous, light read that invokes the charm of the south and exposes secrets long hidden.

LYNN HAVEN, FL, OCTOBER 8, 2014—Tolar Miles knows how to entertain readers with a nostalgic look at the charm of the south.


Miles’ debut novel, Mud Marbles, a southern novel about two affluent families from the fictitious town of Cotton Tree, Alabama, has been called a cross between The Help and The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya- Sisterhood, minus the issues of civil rights and political views.


In the novel, the reader meets Marilyn and Kathryn, sisters and neighbors whose favorite pastime is sipping martinis from mason jars on Marilyn’s front porch in the gulf front town of Orange Beach, Alabama, as they reminisce about family and the times they visited Cotton Tree.

Miss Mincy is the girls’ source of stability and has given the entire family advice and inspiration throughout the years. While some could misconstrue Mincy’s presence, she is not a maid. She is a member of the Chandler-Drake household in Cotton Tree.


Then there’s Delta, a distant cousin of the Drake family who comes to visit Cotton Tree from Savannah, Georgia for most family gatherings. Cousin Delta does not shy away from confrontation and will speak her mind even to the pastor of the First Baptist Church. She loves her bourbon and cola and livens up the atmosphere of every social event she attends.

In all, Mud Marbles revisits a web of memories from sorority sisters shelling peas, to charity bake sales, and finding confederate gold in a hidden ballroom, while invoking the charm of the south and exposing long-buried secrets.

“It’s a nice, relaxing read that can be enjoyed with or without a cocktail,” says TouchPoint Press publisher Sheri Williams. “But for those who prefer to enjoy a nice drink while reading, the author has an added perk—the real Mud Marbles recipe is included at the end of the book.”


The sister’s favorite drink includes Tito’s Handmade Vodka—a real brand the company (TitosVodka.com) permitted to be used in the book. After all, there’s just something about a nice cocktail that invokes southern hospitality and gets the stories flowing like sweet Tupelo honey. And boy do these sisters have some stories to tell!

Mud Marbles releases in paperback and as an ebook October 20, 2014 and will be available through major retailers including Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books-a-Million, iTunes, and more.
