When It Comes to Stuck with a Stiff and Bitchy Sign-Style 'Tude, Nothin' Beats a Bad Ass Bovine!

Happy Tuesday, D. D. Scott-ville!

I'm over the moon and down on the farm thrilled to announce the release of the first book in my brand new series with my brand new co-author David Slegg...


On Amazon

B&N Nook

Kobo

Smashwords (for Sony and iPad readers)

Price: 99 Cents


For Stuck with a Stiff - Think Castle and Beckett gone-country meet Betty Boop and My Cousin Vinny.

And for all of you D. D. Scott Bootscootin’ Books and Cozy Cash Mystery Fans, The Mom Squad joins the fun!


The Stuck with a Series is Castle gone-country with The Mom Squad, Betty Boop and My Cousin Vinny in the barnyard.

But this ain’t no ordinary barnyard.

There’s a lot more than a crazy rooster missing from the chicken coop, a bad ass cow causing a bunch of trouble and a dog looking like a creature out of a storybook. There’s a stiff too. A stiff - as in a dead guy - in a snow drift near the chicken coop.

Things aren’t lookin’ too good for Nicky Blane, who owns the farm. He’s used to creating fictional stiffs for his bestselling novels, not defending himself from being framed for murder.

Bonus Content Included:

In case you missed my Stuck with a Series Prequel – Stuck with a Schmuck - which gives you a superfab fun set-up to Stuck with a Stiff – no worries...’cause it’s included!


Now then...as I mentioned above, Stuck with a Stiff has a bad ass cow (bovine) causing a bunch of trouble.

Her name is Beulah.

But here's the thing with Beulah...She's not from David and I's imaginations. Nope, she's alive, anything but well and causing a bunch of havoc on David's family's farm. Here's her official press photo:


There ain't no Bitchy Sign I've found to match Beulah's 'Tude! LOL! She's her own brand of "bull"shit!!!

Here's How to Deal with Stress...in a D. D. Scott-ville Bitchy Sign Bonanza Way!!!

Happy Tuesday, Peeps!

Lately, in D. D. Scott-ville, it's been a wee bit stressful. No worries, though. It's all good and just the normal kinda stressful stuff in the publishing world - i.e. projects a tad behind schedule, distributors not paying on-time, dealing with 'tude when it comes to Indie Epublishing, and too many ideas to write/too little time.

Yep, all the usual "stuff."

But here's a superfab fun way that I've learned to deal with it and thrive and still have a helluva great time...most days...LOL!

I rely on Bitchy Signs like these:









And for those days when even the Bitchy Signs aren't enough, I squeeze the hell outta my new Stress Buddies...


Look...when they're under pressure, their eyes bulge out just like mine...


How fun is all that madness?!

What's New and Coming Soon to D. D. Scott-ville!

Happy Tuesday, D. D. Scott-ville!

I'm over the moon to fill you in on What's New and What's Coming Soon to treat all you superfab D. D. Scott-ville Peeps...

First, later this week, get ready for the 4th Edition of our WG2E All-For-Indies Anthologies:


Here's the scoop -

With this Fourth Edition of our WG2E All-For-Indies Anthologies, we’re treating you to a terrific, one-of-a-kind approach to the anthology concept.

You’ll get a variety of genres all packaged together as a wonderful way to discover authors new to you and a variety of story lengths – from short-shorts, to short and novella length too!

In addition, each WG2E Anthology is based on a different theme, and we’re over the moon to offer you unique perspectives on these superfab fun themes.

Here’s what we mean by that...

In our WG2E Summer Fling Anthology, we’re treating you to stories that yes, have a Summer and/or At The Beach element, but you’ll never think of Summer or The Beach in quite the same way.

For example:

“What if Victoria’s Secret meets Kill Bill…in The O.C.?” for D. D. Scott’s FLUID FULFILLMENT

“Will this hot and humid Savannah night save a young couple’s love…or end it?” for Lois Lavrisa’s TURNABOUT TWIST

“Will two lovers’ troubled pasts be too much for their summer romance to overcome?” for Cynthia Woolf’s TAME A SUMMER HEART

“With the help of a barely-there bikini, could a super steamy PI assignment turn into something more?” for L.C. Giroux’s WILD CHILD

“How about a summer romance she never saw coming?” for Lisa Scott’s HOT AND BOTHERED


Note: Watch for The WG2E All-For-Indies Anthologies Spooky Shorts Edition coming Halloween 2012 and the Martini Madness Edition coming for the 2012 Holiday Season!!!

Also, headed your way later this month...be watching for Book One of my brand new series:


Here's a little scoop on that:

For Stuck with a Stiff – Book One of the Stuck with a Series - think Castle and Beckett gone-country meet Betty Boop and My Cousin Vinny.

And for all of you D. D. Scott Bootscootin’ Books and Cozy Cash Mystery Fans, The Mom Squad joins the fun!



The Stuck with a Series is Castle gone-country with The Mom Squad, Betty Boop and My Cousin Vinny in the barnyard.

But this ain’t no ordinary barnyard. There’s a lot more than a crazy rooster missing from the chicken coop, a bad ass cow causing a bunch of trouble and a dog looking like he ran full throttle out of the pages of a storybook. There’s a stiff too. A stiff - as in a dead guy - in a snow drift near the chicken coop.

Things aren’t lookin’ too good for Nicky Blane, who owns the farm. He’s used to creating fictional stiffs for his bestselling novels, not defending himself from being framed for murder.

Bonus Content Included:

In case you missed my Stuck with a Series Prequel (part of The WG2E's Viva La Valentine Anthology) – STUCK WITH A SCHMUCK - which gives you a superfab fun set-up to STUCK WITH A STIFF – no worries...’cause it’s included!


About My Co-Author:

David Slegg is a Debut Humorous Mystery Author. He grew up on a cattle farm on the banks of the Wabash River and studied Ag Economics at Purdue. He’s been just about everything under the sun - a waiter, a research technician, a bouncer, a salesman, a mapmaker, a bookseller, an ultra-marathon runner, an AutoCAD drafter, and an editor. In his spare time, he recently earned his MLIS (Master of Library and Information Science) from Simmons College in Boston. His friends have been telling him for years that he should write a book. Let’s just say he’s had an unusually high number of improbably unlucky experiences. We’re talking about the sorts of things that you’d find humorous if they were happening to a character in a novel but not so funny if they were happening to you. He inflicts some of these situations on his characters. Hell, it’s probably therapeutic.

Note: This is the first book in my Serial Novels Collection that is now finished and ready to go live as its own single title release. To join my Serial Novel Subscription Service, where you get one to two new chapters per week by email, click here:

The D. D. Scott-ville 2012 Christmas Theme is...

Happy Tuesday, D. D. Scott-ville!

Each year, around the end of July or August (so yeah...part of the whole superfab Christmas in July spirit), I choose my D. D. Scott-ville Christmas Theme!

Last year, based on my love of all-things Bitchy Signs, it was:

A Committed Christmas

Note: You can catch a couple of my previous themes too in the Committed Christmas post.

Now then...for 2012...

Drum roll here...

Let's hear it for

Ho-Ho-Ho and Show Me the Dough


How fabulous is this little guy?!

I found him during a Muse Therapy Trip last week to one of my fave Art Festivals in Nappanee IN

And he became the inspiration for my 2012 Christmas Theme!

I also had these fabulous ornaments made for Buckley and Siggy:


All three of these are made of Dough by the wonderfully talented peeps at

Dough Folks

I knew I wanted something sassy, fun and full of dough to celebrate the year I finally broke into the publishing world in a "show me the dough" kinda way. So, what better way to have fun with that than by a tree filled with dough ornaments?! :-)

For my topper, I'm going to make a blinged-out sign reading "Pay It Forward"...'cause as y'all know, here in D. D. Scott-ville, that's what it's all about - Paying It Forward.

The Best of D. D. Scott-ville Pay It Forward Wishes --- D. D. Scott

P.S. Tell us about your Christmas trees and themes...and how do you Pay It Forward during the holiday season (and the rest of the year too)?
