TAKING MY FIRST STEPS AS AN AUTHOR

By David Slegg



Hello to everyone out there in D.D. Scott-ville!


This is David Slegg, D.D. Scott's new co-author for the STUCK WITH A Series of Serial Novels. I'm really excited to be guest blogging on D.D.'s site today. Thanks, D.D.!


I grew up on a cattle farm along the banks of the Wabash River and earned my bachelors in Ag Economics from Purdue. I've kept busy with just about every type of work under the sun over the years. Most recently, I got my MLIS (Masters in Library and Information Science) from Simmons College in Boston where I lived for the past several years.


I recently moved back to the family farm where, along with tending the cows, I've been editing and now I've added writing to the mix.


Just like the newborn calf shown in the image below who's taking his first steps, I'm taking my first steps into the author world. Just FYI, this little guy was featured in my first Farm Pic of the Day on my blog.





I'm very exited to be starting out on my journey as a debut author and I'm even more excited and honored to have the opportunity to begin this journey with the know-how and invaluable counsel of my amazing co-author, D.D. Scott.


It's going to be great to see how this all unfolds. As I mentioned above, I'm going to be sharing a Farm Pic of the Week on my blog every Thursday, as well as sharing my Farm Pic of the Day on Facebook and Twitter each day. I hope you'll come on over and connect with me Down on the Farm. I think this is going to be a wonderful journey. I hope you will all join me Down on the Farm!

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

Very cool stuff, David!

It's Your Turn, D. D. Scott-ville: What would y'all like to know about David? Ask away, and I betchya he just might answer...

Serial Novels: D. D. Scott and David Slegg Do Dickens!

Happy Monday, D. D. Scott-ville!!!

What a day!!! What an announcement to share with y'all!!!

You're probably thinkin’...

Who’s David Slegg?

And

What do D. D. Scott and this David Slegg have to do with Charles Dickens?

Here's the scoop...

David Slegg is my new Co-Author.

He’s the Castle to my Beckett.


You can get the scoop on him on his new website:

http://davidslegg.com/

And

Welcome to our new series...

The Stuck with a Series!





For all you superfab Castle fans out there...

The Stuck with a Series is –

Castle gone country


Today, our first Stuck with a Series Book – STUCK WITH A STIFF – releases!

STUCK WITH A STIFF finishes where I left off in my WG2E All-For-Indies Viva La Valentine Anthology contribution – STUCK WITH A SCHMUCK (the STUCK WITH A STIFF Prequel).

Y’all will find out how that body got in Nicky Blane’s chicken coop as well as who dumped it there to frame Nicky.

Now then...here’s the coolest part of all about this new release...

STUCK WITH A STIFF is being released in serial format!

What does that mean?

Think D. D. Scott and David Slegg do Charles Dickens.

Charles Dickens began his writing career by publishing his novels in Serial Format, which meant that each month, another installment (aka chapter) was released.

How fun is that?!

Okay...fun...but why would an author want to do that?

Here’s the scoop...

One of the questions I’m asked most by my readers is:

“How long do we have to wait for the next book?”


Mind you, I write damn fast – it takes me about three months to write a full-length novel – but, I know, that’s not fast enough, right?! Not according to my readers!!! LOL!

So, “what if” I treated you to a new bit of D. D. Scott-ville, along with David Slegg, each week?

As in...one or two new chapters per week?


Ala Dickens!!!

D. D. Scott and David Slegg Do Dickens

Each week then, just like Dickens did each month, David and I will treat ya to the next chapter in our Stuck with a Series books.

For just $2.99 per year, you can subscribe to our Stuck with a Series Subscription Service and receive your weekly installment of our books.


We plan to release two full-length novels in this series in 2012, along with a Christmas Novella too.

So, you’re getting two full-length novels and a Christmas Novella for just $2.99!!!

Here's how the Subscription Service works...

Just email me - dd(dot)scott(at)live(dot)com - that you'd like to subscribe (Subject Line: Stuck with a Series Subscription) then send in your PayPal payment of $2.99, payable to that same email...and we'll sub you into our A-mazing Stuck with a Series World!!!


You'll begin your Stuck with a Series Adventure in our Yahoo Group with both STUCK WITH A SCHMUCK (The Prequel to the series) and the first chapter of STUCK WITH A STIFF (The Stuck with a Series – Book 1):

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/scottandsleggstuckwithaseries/

Our Stuck With A Series World will be totally Reader-Interactive too...in that, in many cases, you'll choose which direction you'd like to see the stories and characters go! We'll also have a ton of cool pictures so you can "see" our world too!!!

Happy Ereading!!!

And Welcome to our Stuck with a Series of Serial Ebooks!!!

CARATS and COCONUTS - Cozy Cash Mystery #3 - is Here!!!

Happy Tuesday, D. D. Scott-ville!!!

Ohhh yeahhh...let's start Happy Dancin' together...

CARATS and COCONUTS - Cozy Cash Mystery #3 - is here!!!



CARATS and COCONUTS on Amazon

on B&N Nook

at Smashwords



Welcome Back to my Cozy Cash Mystery World!!!

Here's the scoop:

Think Will and Kate gone Bond, James Bond in the gem smuggling world of Brazil's Amazon Rainforest...with the help of Grams, who now has a Queen of Crabby Maxine fixation.



There’s crazy.

Then there’s a cut above crazy.

And when your parents are two of the world’s top gemologists, you not only learn to deal with cuts – brilliant, baguette, briolette and the list goes on - but you also get damn good at dealin’ with the crazies that those cuts bring into your life. And by crazies, think the smugglers and thieves who transport gems around the globe.

So yeah, as you can imagine, Zoey Witherspoon’s life has been anything but Mayberry. And she doesn’t see that changing anytime soon.

As a Designer and Stylist to The Stars, a fairly new PI, and now the Princess of Caserta, she’s got one crazy-packed resume. As if that’s not enough, she’s also the daughter of George and Suzie Witherspoon of Witherspoon & Witherspoon, the world’s premiere gem vault and lapidary.

The world can’t responsibly deal with the kinds of wealth her parents cut from rocks. The gem trade breeds its own kind of terror. And Zoey’s about to put an end to it...or at least the part of it she knows how to stop. Unless the smugglers stop her first.


Bonus Content Included:

In case you missed my Cozy Cash Mystery Christmas Novella - HULLABALOO AND HOLLY TOO - which gives you a superfab fun set-up to CARATS AND COCONUTS – or missed A CUT ABOVE CRAZY (the prequel to CARATS AND COCONUTS)...no worries...’cause they’re both included!

***I'm treatin' ya to three stories for just 99 Cents!!! Plus...y'all get a Sneak Peek at my new series - The Stuck with a Series - which debuts later this month with Book One - Stuck with a Stiff!!!***


Happy Reading, D. D. Scott-ville!

And thanks sooo very much for all your enthusiasm regarding the release of this next Cozy Cash Mystery!!!
