When most people are sleeping, dreaming of tropical locations or having nightmares Rhonda dreams of food. Waking up to jot down ideas for the next time she gets into her kitchen. A genuine foodie at heart, who loves to cook for her family and friends whenever she gets the chance. She finally decided that all the recipes that have been floating around in her head or jotted down in notebooks needed to be pulled together and become a cookbook that she could share with others.


Rhonda featured recipes for my Bootscootin' Books' Roxy and Zayne as well as for my Cozy Cash Mystery Hero Roman Bellesconi!!!

You'll get the following waaay wonderful recipes:

Roxy's Whoop It Up Whoopie Pies

Zayne's Bootscootin' Rum Balls

Welcome to D. D. Scott-ville...Bestselling Author Tonya Kappes!!!

Happy Tuesday, D. D. Scott-ville!

I've got an over the moon superfab treat for ya today...

Last week, we went "across the pond" with my MADNESS UNDER THE MISTLETOE partner, Bestselling UK Author Talli Roland...

And I promised you this week, we'd Welcome to D. D. Scott-ville my other superfab partner in MADNESS UNDER THE MISTLETOE...

So, ohhhh yeahhh...

Welcome to D. D. Scott-ville...Bestselling Author Tonya Kappes!!!

I'm sooo thrilled to have partnered with Tonya for our Christmas Anthology MADNESS UNDER THE MISTLETOE!



on Amazon

on Barnes & Noble Nook

at Smashwords (for iPad, Sony, and Kobo)


As three members of the MADNESS Crew, we thought it would be waaay fun and very Muse Therapy-esque to give y'all the scoop regarding the inspiration behind each of our MADNESS UNDER THE MISTLETOE short-story contributions!

Talli kicked us off last week with the inspiration behind her Madness Under The Mistletoe Story - Miracle at the Museum of Broken Hearts!

Tonya will pick-up today.

Take it away, Tonya...






**********************


Definition of superstition: Noun
1. An irrational belief arising from ignorance or fear.
2. The way Maggie Greenlee lives her life…


Yes, this is the first line my novel, Never Tell Your Dreams Before Breakfast.

I absolutely love this novel.

No matter what authors say, there is a little bit on themselves in every one of their novels. And I’m no different.

My Grandberry Falls series set in the fictitious town of Grandberry Falls, is less than fictitious. It’s actually based on my small hometown. And if you know anything about small towns, there is a lot of superstition. From which house is haunted, lifting you feet up as you drive over railroad tracks. It’s just something that is engrained in you.

A SUPERSTITIOUS CHRISTMAS, in the MADNESS UNDER THE MISTLETOE anthology, is the prequel to my third Grandberry Falls novel, Never Tell Your Dreams Before Breakfast.

I wanted to give everyone a glimpse into what it is really like in a real small town, superstition and all. Starting with the Greenlee family seemed like the right place.

Maggie Greenlee, like me, was raised on superstitious beliefs, and it’s hard to explain those to potential boyfriends or husband in Maggie’s case. Sometimes they understand your crazy beliefs and sometimes they call you crazy! Either way, superstition is so engrained in your soul, it’s nearly impossible to try to live your life without it.

I NEVER leave a house/store/restaurant through a different door than I came in. It would simply mean bad luck and anyway I can ward it off I will.

I thought it would be fun and funnier to write a book about a small town girl who moves away to a big city where she finds love and happiness. Or so she thinks, because you know she’s been trying all her life to get out of that small town.

What happens when she does land that great job, hunky and rich Hampton boyfriend who thinks her superstition is childish? Well, it turns out that the Greenlee’s traditional Christmas is turned upside down when Maggie brings her “other” home!

A SUPERSTITIOUS CHRISTMAS is a fun tale of family and what true happiness really is.

So next time you have a dream...be sure to never tell it before breakfast!

***********************

Completely brilliant story concept, right D. D. Scott-ville?!

From a waaay brilliant Bestselling Author!

Here's the scoop on Tonya (or Super T as Talli and I call her):


I write fun humorous fiction, some with romance and some with a little mystery.
More than anything I love to connect with readers! I'm a huge fan of them and LOVE getting to know them. I love to make readers smile, and remember not to take life to seriously. KARMA plays a big role in my life, and I believe in being kind to everyone, even if they aren't kind back. I'm addicted to coffee, McDonald's Diet Coke, and Red Hots Candy!

I'm the co-founder of The Writer’s Guide to E Publishing (thewritersguidetoepublishing.com) where we give writers the true grit on what helped us sell more books, and reach more readers.

When I'm not writing about quirky characters and even quirkier situations, I'm busy being the princess, queen and jester of my domain which includes my BFF husband, three teenage boys and two dogs.

Why write a book with beading elements? Once upon a time, I was the proud co-owner of a very successful beading company, Beadnicks LLC.

I'm a member of the following affliates:
http://www.rwanational.org/ Romance Writer's of America
http://ovrwa.com/ Ohio Valley Romance Writer's of America
http://chicklitwriters.com/ Chick Writers of the World
