Description

Dixie Stuart, Queen of the Southern Romance novel is forty-two, divorced, living in Manhattan, overweight, and the primary-custodial parent to an increasingly rebellious teenaged daughter Candace. Dixie's sister, Vivian, calls from Virginia to beg Dixie to come help with their aging father, Hook Stuart,who is experiencing the onset of dementia. Dixie decides to pack up Candace and their belongings to go back home. She arrives to find the once majestic estate of her childhood in as rapid decline as her dear daddy's mind. When Dixie discovers that her siblings want to commit Hook to a nursing home while they sell off the family land because Hook has invested his last two nickels in raising alpacas and cultivating hemp, Dixie is determined to save both her father and his farm. As The Table Turns introduces us to a bevy of quirky Southern characters, from Dixie's cranky daughter, dramatic sister, flamboyant brother, and demented daddy, to a once secret beau who has Dixie's own bosom heaving, instead of her most infamous character and nagging muse, Mary Nell Dupree.

A rollicky roll through the Shennendoah valley, this journey of coming home brings a rich and poignant reconciliation between mother and daughter, family and home, and a long ago romance that sparked it all.

Phone Call Alert! 

(Please read, thanks.) 

Old Timey Switchboard Operator Cartoon

 

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.
