Belgian short film CAVERNE, just released, adapts "Allegory of a Cave" from GIRL TROUBLE

THE SALT LINE reviewed in the Pittsburg Post-Gazette

September 29, 2017

"Combining elements of sci-fi, thrillers and speculative fiction, “The Salt Line” is a page-turner. Ms. Goddard Jones, who is the author of “The Next Time You See Me” and the collection “Girl Trouble,” builds a believable world and generates tension effectively. The plot is action-driven, but an ensemble cast of characters keeps the story rooted in human emotions and motivations. For a story that starts out being about killer ticks, it offers much more."

Publishers Weekly Review

July 24, 2017

"Fans of Jones will appreciate her return to an ensemble-driven narrative, and new fans will find social commentary and intense thrills rolled into one seamless story. Outwardly an adventure story, this suspenseful novel uses a thrilling premise to examine the fallout of abandoning universal freedoms in order to ensure collective safety."

Booklist Review

August 01, 2017

"This mystery-like structure keeps the reader guessing as Jones switches seamlessly from evocative pastoral

descriptions of North Carolina and Tennessee to action-packed scenes of violence. Along the way, she

explores themes of environmental degradation, technological dependence, and corporate greed. At once

dark, disturbing, and highly enjoyable, this is a timely novel bursting with ideas."
