Yarbrough's Mississippi Cotton is Now a 2011 and 2012 Kindle Bestseller

Paul Yarbrough's critically-acclaimed debut novel, Mississippi Cotton, has become a 2011 and 2012 Kindle Bestseller on Amazon. Yarbrough's debut book brings to light the complex history of rural Mississippi in the 1950's. The book has earned a strong following and been nominated for several prestigious literary awards. Yarbrough is currently working on his highly anticipated second novel.

Mississippi Cotton follows a young boy named Jake Conner on his adventure through the Mississippi Delta in 1951. Many readers will be able to relate to Jake's summer vacation, "but his gets a little more adventurous as he and his cousins snoop around in a mystery that is better left to the grown-ups," says Yarbrough. The book has drawn critical acclaim from across the country. The main character Jake Conner has been compared to Mattie in True Grit and Scout in To Kill a Mockingbird. "Sharp eyes tempered with childhood simplicity," says Delta Magazine.

"I am honored to have my novel Mississippi Cotton named a 2011 and 2012 Amazon Bestseller," said Paul H. Yarbrough. "This book is mystifying and is written in a style that is distinctly Southern but one that readers anywhere can enjoy." While this novel is brimming with mystery and adventure, Mississippi Cotton also successfully captures that coveted "Southern charm". The author brings a heartwarming perspective to the old-vs.-new life in the South.

Mississippi Cotton is a must-have for not only Southern enthusiasts but anyone who loves to roll up their sleeves and solve a mystery. The novel is "heavy on nostalgia and the setting is where my roots are: Mississippi," says Yarbrough. Cari Jean with Hub Pages calls it a "very good read and I would recommend this book to other." "This book definitely took me back to a simpler place in time where kids were disciplined, they respected their elders and the best times of their lives were spent at the picture show on the weekends and at the river on the hottest of days," says Jean.

Amazon is one of world's top book sellers and features the very best of Bestsellers. Amazon has millions and millions of customers worldwide. Becoming an Amazon Bestseller is one of the highest accomplishments authors can achieve.
