The Road To Bittersweet


I wanted to wait for things to settle down (ha!) a little bit before I shared this with y’all.  Unbeknownst to many, except family…oh, okay, maybe I let this slip out to a few close friends, here’s some news about what else I’ve been up to.

This is the Publisher’s Marketplace announcement which came out Wednesday:

THE EDUCATION OF DIXIE DUPREE author, and Indie Next and Amazon Top 10 Best Book of the Month pick, Donna Everhart’s THE ROAD TO BITTERSWEET, a coming of age story set in 1940 in the Appalachian mountains of North Carolina that tells the story of a family and two unique sisters who share an exceptional bond until the events following a flood force them all into unimaginable circumstances for survival, and where the younger sister learns to face and accept her sister’s differences, to John Scognamiglio at Kensington, by John Talbot at Talbot Fortune Agency (World).

Coming, January 2018.

    Thank you, Lennon! I hope you’ll let me know what you think of DIXIE. It’s hard to believe I’m wrangling with the 3rd book now. (really the fifth, but who’s counting….) 🙂

I’m a little late to the party, but congratulations, Donna!! If BITTERSWEET is as good as DIXIE, you’ll be set. 😉

OMG! Stay away for a couple days with the beginning of NANO and this place catches fire! Top 10! Book Two! You gotta be on Cloud 10!

What are you gonna do Sunday when you have 25 hours in a day, announce a movie deal and write the script?!

Wow, wow and wow!!! Awesome stuff, Donna. So happy for ya.

I was just notified that my library bought The Education of Dixie Dupree at my request. Right now it’s the book only, so I’ll wait a few weeks to see if they also buy the audio, because I’d prefer audio. But I’m excited!

And congrats on book 2!

    Hey Dena! Thank you for requesting it! I’ve seen where several libraries indicated they’ve ordered it. (me and Google doing our thing to stalk DIXIE – ha!) I hope the audio is good. The narrator is a member of SAG-AFTRA, so, I’m anxious to “hear” it. It’s going to be WEIRD.

    And thank you on book 2!

Well, damn. And I thought your editor had talked you into a book every two years.
Seriously, hot damn. Amazing.
The blurb looks like the book would translate nicely into a movie along the lines of WINTER’S BONE. Maybe it will illuminate someone like BONE did for Jennifer Lawrence.

    Thank you, Craig! I wrote that blurb, and thought they might change it, but no, it stuck! I’m getting better at it…I loved WINTER’S BONE – it was a rough read, but very good. I’m supposed to do something like a book a year. 🙂

    I sooo wanted to respond to your comment the other day at The Reef…(about next book for debut authors, etc.) but I was waiting for this PM thingie, and figured, well, I’ll just do a blog post. 🙂 I’m thrilled about your take on DIXIE, btw. Your comments made my heart go kerthump!
