Amazon (!!!) has selected The Education of Dixie Dupree as their “Debut Spotlight” book along with being on their list of TOP 10 Picks for November!
I’m currently reading this book and I LOVE it. Would add more here but I have to get back to seeing how Dixie is fairing!

Those sorts of comments always leave me smiling! I’m glad you love it so far, let me know what’cha think when you’re done! I’m glad you’re here!
Thank you, will do.
What an honor Donna!!! Congrats and all my best!!!
Thank you, Christy!
Is this vindication? If memory serves Dixie was on submission for some three years. That must make this all the sweeter. I salute you because I am getting tired of congratulating you. All the best.
Actually, the book went on sub in 2012 and was sent out to 23 editors who rejected it, and then it wasn’t submitted anymore. The term my agent used for the status was “inactive,” meaning it could go on sub again, if the right editor came along. I liked the way he did this – because it meant if he had lunch one day with the “right” editor, he could submit it to him. So…when BLACK WATER was on sub, and got rejected, as you know, that editor asked to see something else, and the rest, as they say, is history. 🙂
I feel sure everyone is sick of me and my news by now. LOL! But I actually have more to share, and it will be the blog post for tomorrow. So, get that salute ready. 🙂
I’ve been having a break from the internet, but been cheering you every step of the way from the sidelines over here. Such wonderful news — enjoy!
PS: Now finish that celebratory drink and get back to work, you have other books to write!
Thanks, Mr. ipants! 🙂
I had wine at the launch event last night, and folks didn’t drink as much as I thought they would – so I have PLENTY. And I do need to get back to work…on that darn outline.
OMG, soooo happy for you!! Congratulations!!!
Thank you, Averil! ❤

I’m glad she “gets” my sense of humor. I hope.
