The Education of Dixie Dupree is a Kindle Daily Deal!

Hello all!

I tend to forget to post here on my website about sales on my books. I’m trying to do better.  ???????? Today my debut, The Education of Dixie Dupree is a Kindle Daily Deal!

(Two more are coming up this month – one for The Road to Bittersweet and another for The Moonshiner’s Daughter, all Kindle Daily Deals. I’ll be sure to post when those happen!)

It’s hard to believe that almost seven years ago my debut novel was published. This was a book I never thought would sit on bookshelves in bookstores, much less be read by anyone other than myself and my agent.

Spotted in the wild at the Raleigh Durham Airport (!)????

I always tell readers this is one of my toughest stories to read – actually, I think it is my toughest because it’s written graphically. You will either love it – or hate it. There seems to be very little middle ground when it comes to reader opinions on this. I think what makes people love it is Dixie has a winning voice, a voice my agent called “remarkable.” (yes, after all this time I remember that. ????) What makes some hate it is what happens to Dixie and how it’s written.

Either way, I hope you’ll give Dixie a chance to tell her story. Mary O’Malley of Anderson’s Bookshop in Napier, IL, said, “This debut novel is a page-turner from the very beginning. In a story of a family filled with pain, deceit, lies, and dark secrets across generations, Everhart allows readers to feel everything her young narrator, Dixie, must endure. For me, the mark of a good book is that I find myself thinking about it after I have finished reading, and The Education of Dixie Dupree will be with me for a long while.”

  1. I discovered The Education of Dixie Dupree in Target. I browse their books like I’m at the library. When I got home it was the first one I read. It was heartbreaking beautiful and while at times difficult to read, I found her voice to be triumphant and extraordinary. I hugged that book when I was finished it. I then sent it off to a friend with a note saying “You have to read this book now. It’s difficult but keep reading”. I told everyone about this book describing it as a must read. An amazing debut and yes, a story that needed to be told.

    1. Thank you SO much for not only reading Dixie but for also sharing her sad, yet triumphant story with others. I too, felt it was a story that needed to be told. I am thankful for the readers, like you, who understood her.
