Dixie - Open Roads (Sybil Watters)
Featured Indie Book on Indie Author News: Coming-of-Age Southern Fiction Dixie: Open Roads by Sybil Watters.

Dixie: Open Roads is a gritty, dark and raw southern fiction. Loosely historical. An amazing Coming of age story detailing the deeply haunting and troubled life of a young man in the Deep South.

The Book has been self-published via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Others and is available as eBook - 260 pages - released in September 2014.

About the Book

Back when they first called him “Wild Bill,” Billy Pierce was an original redneck, in the truest... and least demeaning sense of the word, scalding his skin under the sweltering Georgia sun to put food on the table for his growing family. That is, until he met ol’ Dixie in a small town named “Winder”, and all hell broke loose.

“Dixie” details the deeply haunting and troubled life of a young man in the Deep South in the 1960s-70s, constantly at war with his own demons and promoted by a sinister man in the ways of running shine, driving fast cars, cavorting with loose women and inadvertently gaining sole insight into a secret, southern-style organized crime network, historically known as the “Dixie Mafia”.

Always trying to do the right thing by the love of his life; a beautiful, religious and spirited local, he finds himself torn by his angry nature and constantly tormented by his own failures and irresponsible actions.

Reviews (Excerpts)

- "This was a fantastic book, it was so riveting to read. Besides keeping you glued to the page the entire time, all the characters were very interesting especially the main three. The characters Billy and Dixie are so complex, they constantly toy with your emotions throughout the entire book. This book would really make a great movie, but until then I cannot wait for the next book to come out!" - Tim Crenshaw

- "What a good read. Could not put it down! Anxious to read the next book, can't wait for it to come out. Characters are very authentic and waiting to see what happens next." - Linda Nolan

- "I loved this book! I couldn't put it down. She made me FEEL Winder and I felt the struggles, the characters pain, I felt dirty, I felt scared and I definitely felt entertained. [...] This is definitely a must read." - Lynsey (Amazon)

- "Really enjoyed this book. I was skeptical when I first began the book that I would like the story, but then it grabbed me and I was hooked on the characters and the colorful southern life. Couldn't put it down - a fast read - terrific story!" - Kathryn A. Cox

- "DIXIE Book One: Open Roads lives up to my expectations of a big swig of Southern flavor. Watters takes readers on a roller coaster ride of highs and lows as the characters clash and mesh at every intersection. Mystery, debauchery and scandal play chase with trust, loyalty and power. [...]" - JKelley (Amazon)
