Bitchy Signs to Help You Achieve What Some Would Call Impossible Dreams

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.

BUT...

I DIDN'T

I KEPT ON SKIPPIN' ALONG THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD...ALL THE WAY TO MY VERY OWN PUBLISHING OZ!

For all of you waaay wonderful Writers in D. D. Scott-ville, here's some scoop you'd be interested in:

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:


Be ready to ride...and cuss a bunch...




Find a great therapist...


***For Writers: you can also check out my Muse Therapy Book and Classes!!!

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

Bitchy Signs that sooo work for Business

Happy Tuesday, D. D. Scott-ville!

I'm thrilled to announce that over the weekend, my next non-fiction book released, and it contains all my Secrets to Indie Epublishing Success!


Here's the scoop and all the links too on my new page For Writers in D. D. Scott-ville:

For Writers

The release of this book got me to thinkin' about all the Bitchy Signs I've collected that sooo work for Business. In other words, these are the signs that have given me the courage to stay the Self-Publishing course until I succeeded.

For example, I'd tried for 10+ years to break into publishing the Traditional Way by submitting to agents, editors, and New York Publishers. But not until I had the courage to first say "wow, the TradiPub system really consists of piss poor business practices" and then act on that fact did I have the courage to try Indie Epublishing/Self-Publishing.


For years, even after I got the high-powered agents and got the attention of big-time editors and New York publishers, and had deal after deal fall through, people still thought I was nuts and would never make it.


Finally, I decided I'd waited long enough for other people to "choose me" (i.e. publish me). I was ready to try it on my own...on the new road that hadn't even been paved yet...the Indie Epub Yellow Brick Road to Publishing Oz...


I took a lot of nasty heat for my decision. But who cares?! I sure as hell didn't. I just wasn't convinced that New York was right and that despite the fact that they loved my books, "no one was buying that kind of book anymore." My gut told me that was total bullshit.

So I had to:


Brush up on my Diplomatic Skills...


Because, let's face it...


And really, after I've now sold over 100,000 Ebooks, those same Ebooks that New York Traditional Publishers said would never sell, I can answer them like this:


It's really this simple:



I gave it a try...with my own D. D. Scott spin...and wow, because of all of you, I'm sooo very glad I did!

Thank you for making all my wildest dreams come true!

I luv ya, D. D. Scott-ville! Y'all Rock!!! --- D. D. Scott

P.S. And remember, whenever someone tells you "You can't do that," think D. D. Scott and say "Oh Yeah? Watch Me!"

And I'd highly recommend living life the Hepburn way...either Katharine:


Or Audrey:



“I did War and Peace in velvets and furs in August...In the hunting scene where I’m in velvet and a high hat, the family was plodding across a big field in the blazing Roman sunshine and, all of a sudden, my horse fainted out from under me. They quickly got me out of the saddle...So when they say I’m strong as a horse, I am. I’m stronger! I didn’t faint. The horse did.”
