Happy Tuesday, D. D. Scott-ville Peeps!
On August 10th, I’ll celebrate my 2nd Year Anniversary as an Indie Epublished Author! :-)
It took me 10 Years and 24 Hours to make it, but I finally did!!!
I’ve gone from selling 27 books my first month (August 2010) – yep, just 27 books – to now between 7,000 and 10,000 per month...some months more. I’ve now sold over 100,000 Ebooks and am building my readership by over 10,000 new readers per month.
But here's the thing...for years, people thought I was nuts. A real Crazy Chick. Should be in a Psych Ward type gal.
Why? Because I was dumb enough to talk about my dreams. Let people know when I thought I'd made it, based on other peoples promises and deals-gone-bad.
It would have been really easy and probably a bunch healthier short-term to give-up.
I KEPT ON SKIPPIN' ALONG THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD...ALL THE WAY TO MY VERY OWN PUBLISHING OZ!

And for all of you waaay A-mazing D. D. Scott-ville Readers, it's because of each and every one of you that I made it! And there isn't a day that goes by that I don't thank you and work harder yet to treat you to another great book for a great price!!!
Here are a few Bitchy Signs to Help You Achieve What Some Would Call Impossible Dreams:

Believe in Karma and act on it!
And tell all of those people who tell you you're nuts to stick it and just do whatever it is you do anyway!
The only way you're gonna always suck is if you quit when you still do. And at the beginning, we're all at that level. In the end...yeah...not so much. And for those who still think you do? Well...tell them to stick it too!!!
Cheers to Each of You Achieving Your Dreams and Thank You to Each of You Who've Helped Me Make Mine Come True --- D. D. Scott
