Lots of News! A CORRECTION!
First off, as many of you already know, THE EDUCATION OF DIXIE DUPREE is long listed for the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance (SIBA) 2017 Southern Book Prize. I am in the company of some astonishing talent. There are still many days to go, but I am very honored and proud for my debut to be considered.
Second, while I was celebrating that with some of you on Facebook, I found out other great news related to…and this is the correction folks… THE ROAD TO BITTERSWEET is a Trio Book pick!
The talented, and brilliant Shari Smith dropped that wonderful little comment into the thread, sort of like, here ya go, have a slice of thrillng news.
Well, there’s more to it than that – short version here – but ya know me, my heart started flopping around, and no amount of deep breathing, or hand flapping helped. I have recovered sufficiently now to share this link so you can go and check it out, but essentially, a songwriter, and an artist are chosen who read the book and then create a song and art work to go along it. This is added into an exhibit with other books for that year – 2018 for THE ROAD TO BITTERSWEET – then, the exhibit travels to book stores, festivals, and other venues interested in having it.
More details to come, I’m sure, but that’s what I know now. HOW COOL IS THAT?
Third, was the news about THE ROAD TO BITTERSWEET also being a Publisher’s Lunch Buzz Book which I already shared in this post.
And last! I wanted to share now that THE ROAD TO BITTERSWEET is ALSO now available for pre-order on Amazon, if you want to order – like WAY ahead of schedule. 🙂 Other stores may already have it too. The convenient links are on the site
Release date is December 26, 2017, official publication, January 2, 2018.
I think that’s it!
