Description

GIRLS WITH HAMMERS is a lovingly crafted novel of an independent woman’s struggle to overcome obstacles and build the life she’s always wanted. Author Cynn Chadwick works her literary magic again with this charming tale of family, love, human courage and strength, and Southern hospitality. Cynn Chadwick has done it again with this dramatic sequel to CAT RISING!

“It’s never too late to be what you might have been.” —George Eliot

Carpenter Lily Cameron first read that quote when her lover of eighteen years, Hannah, left after a fight. Her best friend, Cat, had already moved to Scotland, leaving her no one to talk to about her churning emotions. Then the person she looked up to the most, her father, died—leaving her in charge of the family construction business and forcing her to put aside her own business, Girls With Hammers. Soon after, Hannah decides to take a position in Amsterdam, leaving Lily alone.

Phone Call Alert! 

(Please read, thanks.)

Due to the COVID-19 onslaught, we currently cannot take incoming phone calls.  

 

A notification about phone calls:  due to the COVID-19 plague, we've significantly increased our incoming inquiries--nearly double our usual volume--and the number of incoming inquiries by phone has been literally overwhelming.  Although most writers will say that their call "will only take 15 minutes," the truth is, that after 10 years of doing this, most author inquiry calls take an hour.  45 minutes at best. I'm currently receiving 7-10 calls/day, and due to that, I've had to stop accepting incoming phone calls, which my voicemail will tell you. You can leave a message--I can't call you back without one--and if a call is needed, I will of course call you.  But we have very complete and extensive email replies, handouts and our website is very informative. Almost all the questions that I receive during a call are actually already answered on our site, or are, in fact, publishing questions, not questions about our services, what we do, what we offer, or the like.  I already handle between 90-130 emails/day, as it is. I can't handle that many emails and take 7-10 hours of calls each day. I can't. So, in order to be able to answer this huge email volume, to help the greatest number of people, with my time, I've had to stop accepting calls.  I'm sorry, but that's just how it is. I'm in the process of setting up a call-appointment function, for free 15-minute calls to answer questions from new prospective customers and longer paid sessions for folks who generally want consulting on "publishing," generally (and for prospective kids' book publishers, as a special category of paid consulting).  But that functionality isn't yet set up. I hope to get that working the 3rd week of July, sometime.  

Thank you for your understanding.
