Randall Luce | 8 comments Autographed Copy! My first self-published novel, "Motherless Children." The Goodreads giveaway ends June 13.

Help me celebrate the upcoming June publication of my second self-published novel, "Smokestack Lightning," with this Goodreads giveaway of my first novel!

"Motherless Children" was a finalist in the 2008 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Contest.

Publishers Weekly reviewed "Motherless Children" in that contest:

The decline of a grand Southern family forms the backdrop of a rich, complicated mystery. In August of 1946, Sam Swain, Chief of Police of Williams Point, Mississippi, investigates the murders of

Adelia "Auntie" Southworth and her niece, Madeleine. The plot unfolds over a hot, nervous week, but the author, in absolute control of the material, weaves a nearly fifty-year family saga into the narrative. The vivid language elevates the story, and the solution to the mystery ends up both unexpected and satisfying.
