Wavin’ atchya, RG2E Peeps!!!

I’ve got an early Summer treat for ya…

PRACTICAL MISCHIEF (Belle Bishop, Queen of Witches, Book 1) is FREE through June 5th!!!

On Amazon

For Practical Mischief…

Think The Good Witch meets The Three Stooges and Tinker Hell.

Belle Bishop, Queen of Witches, is a good witch.

Her sister Angelica? Not so much.

Belle rules her witchery kingdom using the ancient Wiccan Rede – ‘An’ it harm none, do what thy will,’ while Angelica runs amuck, casting one mischievous spell after another.

But this time, Angelica has gone too far.

It’s up to Belle and her former best friend, Atlas, the greatest wizard the earth has ever known, to save Belle’s niece, Gia, from Angelica’s magical mischief. If they don’t, Gia will end up in The Summerland just like her mother did the last time one of Angelica’s spells went awry.

Luckily, or unluckily, depending on how you look at it, Belle and Atlas have a little help from Atlas’s sons, who are every bit The Three Stooges, as well as an ornery faery named Tinker Hell and a deck of Tarot Cards waiting for someone to deal their destiny.

Bonus Content Included:

You also get a Sneak Peek at my latest Christmas book – THE BILLIONAIRES’ CHRISTMAS CLUB (co-authored with Bestselling Amazon Author Theresa Ragan) – where you’ll first meet Belle’s niece Gia and her prince of a fiancé.

Here’s what readers are saying about PRACTICAL MISCHIEF:

This review is from: Practical Mischief (Belle Bishop, Queen of Witches) (Kindle Edition)
Delightfully whimsical and enchanting the reader with a story, minus the magic, that could be any family’s dynamic. We can relate to the good/bad behaviors of family members in occurrences of disruption of harmony in the family. What great fun we might have had with some magical powers! Belle is an inspiration to embrace your own strengths and use them. This magical book keeps the reader entranced to the end wanting to read more. This reader wants to know more of what is in-store for Belle, Gia, and Angelica.

Two witchy sisters, Beautiful Belle and Angelica who might not be such an angel, cast their spells. Owls and tarots, crystals and wands–5 stars are not enough. DD Scott’s light touch is D-lightful!

I really enjoyed this book but I love all things with a magical twist. I rated this book 4 stars only because I think the next one in the series is going to be even better. Also, I wish there had been more background info so u could have a better understanding of what was going on, I kinda felt like I’d missed the 1st book because there was so much that had happened previously that was never fully explained. I hope D.D. will write a prequel and fill in some of the gaps as to how the Bishop sisters had ended up in the situation they now found themselves in now.

Praise for D. D. Scott:

“…one of the top Romantic Comedy/Humorous Mystery writers out right now.” – ENT (Ereader News Today)

“…who doesn’t need a laugh? Laugh ‘til you (you fill it in) with D. D. Scott’s BOOTSCOOTIN’ BLAHNIKS, and more…” — Steve Windwalker, Kindle Nation Daily

So, get out your Kindles and enjoy this first book in my new series – on me!!! No worries if you don’t have a Kindle either…just download the FREE Kindle Apps and then you can also get the FREE Kindle Copy!!!

Happy Reading and Cheers to Your Very Own Magickal Journey!!! —

D. D. Scott’s Wonderfully Witchy World is Here with Book 1 in Her Belle Bishop, Queen of Witches, Series!!!

When I began writing my latest release – PRACTICAL MISCHIEF (Belle Bishop, Queen of Witches, Book 1) – it was because I have a passion for witchcraft. In fact, I’m a witch-in-training.

I wanted to share my magickal journey with a fabulous fictional cast and crew, and thus Belle Bishop and her Wonderfully Witchy World came to life in my notebooks and then on my screen.

On Amazon

B&N Nook

Kobo

As I always do when I first start a new series, I began to play with how I would market these magickal, witchery-filled books. And also as always, I wanted to find a fabulous way to work-in me, myself and I – and my brand – into my promotions.

My D. D. Scott-ville brand, at its heart, is all about sassy humor and LOL fun.

Why?

Because that’s me…that’s who I am.

One of the things I do with my love of sassy humor is collect and share Bitchy Signs in all of my cyber homes (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, my personal website D. D. Scott-ville, etc.). So, first I wanted to capture that element but give it a magickal boost. To that end, my Bitchy Signs became Witchy Bitchy Signs, like this little gem:

Along with the LMAO fun though, I’m also all about paying it forward and sharing my love of life, organic food, cocktails, coffee, and quirky crazy ideas and pop culture.

But how could I work my witchery journey and new series into all of that?

And what if the fact that I am a witch-in-training scared the hell outta you?

I work with the magickal energies that are all around us. For example, I pay close attention to the moon and celebrate all of its phases. I use crystals and stones, flowers and herbs, candles and color, tarot cards, the elements of fire, water, air and earth.

What could I do with that aspect of me? And even more important, should I put that out there at all?

Did I have the balls to take a Wonderfully Witchy Risk?!

U betchyer broomsticks I did!!!

***Note: That cow is jumpin’ over the moon in style, my friends…one very savvy bovine.

So, I came out of the broom closet!!! 🙂

I started by creating what I call my D. D. Scott-ville Magickal Mantras, a series of blog posts sharing fabulous magickal tips that y’all can use in your own homes to bring more positive things into your life and banish the not-so-positive. There’s the pay it forward portion of my brand’s promise to all of you wonderful peeps. You can do a lot more than just get the scoop from my D. D. Scott-ville World, you can participate in all of the quirky crazy fun too!

Yes, I’ve taken a huge risk coming out of the broom closet with my witchery journey, but I’m being authentic, fun and sharin’ the love – all things at the heart of who I am.

And guess what?!

Thanks to so many of you A-mazing RG2E Peeps, my D. D. Scott-ville website traffic has tripled and every week now most of the posts that show up as my most influential moments (on Klout ) have to do with my wonderfully witchy adventures! :-)

So, Welcome, RG2E Peeps, to my Wonderfully Witchy World! I can’t wait to hear what you think about Belle Bishop, my Queen of Witches.

For PRACTICAL MISCHIEF…Think The Good Witch meets The Three Stooges and Tinker Hell!

Who all would like an Ebook Gift Copy of PRACTICAL MISCHIEF?! Let me know below, and you just might win one!!!

RG2E Featured Author Stacey Joy Netzel on Her Favorite Reader Comment “I Wish It Were Longer…”

Happy Monday, RG2E Peeps!

For an author, nothing beats knowing our readers are really loving our books and want more.

Here’s RG2E Featured Author Stacey Joy Netzel on that very thing…

SJN Author photo

“I wish it were longer…” 

As an author, those are words I love to hear. It means the reader wanted more. They loved the book, but didn’t want it to end so they could continue to spend time with their new ‘friends.’ Not to be confused with “The story ended too soon,” which many times means the reader wasn’t satisfied with the way the story ended.

I have a shorter story that has received both these responses. The readers who wish for more usually leave a great review. The ones who say it ended too soon, well…not so much. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, and this is not to complain about the readers who expected more. I am sorry if I let them down.

The thing is for me, when I wrote the final sentence for that story, it was done. My characters were on their way to their Happily Ever After (HEA), and there was nothing left to tell. Forcing more wouldn’t have satisfied me, or any of my readers.

Then came my story Beneath Still Waters (Part One), in the Tales From The Mist anthology.

Tales_From_the_Mist_cover - final 

An old legend tells of a beautiful witch unjustly persecuted who became a ghost bent on revenge…

The danger lies in not believing.

On a sorority camping trip in the Colorado Rocky Mountain National Park, Becca scoffs at the story of the Ghost of Still Waters, despite the convictions of her fellow campers, Liz and Shane. When Liz challenges her to summon the witch’s spirit, will Becca’s disbelief seal her fate?

Amazon, Amazon UK, BN, ARe, Kobo, SW, Goodreads

I was writing to a word count limit, but the closer I got to 8,000 words, the more antsy I got, because I could feel there was no way the characters’ story would truly be finished to my satisfaction within that limit. But I really wanted to be part of the wonderful collaboration of stories, so I wrapped BSW up, and then decided to write a sequel.

Rising Above (Still Waters Part Two) took me by surprise, too. What I’d expected to be about 15,000 words morphed into 35,000 before the characters stopped ‘talking’ and I could give them the ending they’d earned. And you know what…there’s still the remote possibility that one of the characters from this series will start talking to me in the future.

If she does, there will be a Still Waters (Part Three).

In the meantime I’d love to offer five ebook copies of Tales From The Mist today. Hopefully you’ll WISH Beneath Still Waters was longer and pick up a copy of Rising Above (Still Waters Part Two).

Rising_Above_ebook_cover_1333x2000 

Imagine you’ve lived before, but don’t remember or believe it’s even possible. Therein lies the danger. For in not believing and learning from your pasts, the power shifts to the one who would see you dead. Again.

Ryan James never gave much thought to ghosts or the idea of reincarnation—until the appearance of the beautiful Ali Whitman triggers terrifying visions that feel like real life. As he pieces together their past lives, he discovers they aren’t the only players. Worse, if he can’t convince Ali to believe before their past adversary makes the next move, he’ll lose her all over again.

Amazon, BN, Apple, ARe, Kobo, SW 

And now, my question for you lovely readers: Do you more often find yourself wishing a story were longer, or thinking it ended too soon?

Let me know in the comments, along with your email address, and I’ll draw 5 winners for a download of the Tales From The Mist ebook.

Thank you for stopping by today!

The Cover Reveal for PRACTICAL MISCHIEF – Book 1 in D. D. Scott’s New Series, Belle Bishop, Queen of Witches!

Here it is, RG2E Peeps…

Drum roll…

The cover for the first book in my new series (coming later this month) – PRACTICAL MISCHIEF – Belle Bishop, Queen of Witches, Book 1!

DD Practical Mischeif 600 wide 72dpi

First, thanks to the A-mazing Laura Morrigan for what could be my fave cover yet! Isn’t it beyond magickal?! Luuuvvv the sparkle! Don’t you?!

Now then…what can I tell you about PRACTICAL MISCHIEF – Belle Bishop, Queen of Witches, Book 1 – to tide you over till its release later this month?

For PRACTICAL MISCHIEF…Think The Good Witch meets The Three Stooges and Tinker Hell

Does that help a bit?

Better yet…how ’bout I treat you to Chapter One?
PRACTICAL MISCHIEF – Belle Bishop, Queen of Witches, Book 1

(CHAPTER ONE)

“An’ it harm none, do what thy will.” The Wiccan Rede.

Belle Bishop and her sister Gaia had always lived by The Wiccan Rede. But their sister Angelica never had. This time, however, Angelica had gone too far. Way waaay too far.

Now that Gaia had crossed over into The Summerland, only Belle stood between Angelica and the practical mischief she doled out with gusto. Belle wondered, if even she, Belle Bishop, Queen of Witches, could reverse what her ethically challenged sister had done. Or, should she even attempt to reverse Angelica’s worst spell yet?

Maybe they were all better off just leaving things as they now stood and trying to find the best way to move forward. Maybe. Maybe not.

Belle repeated the Rede over and over. With each deep inhalation, the wise words fortified her resolve to make up for what Angelica had done. With each exhalation, she attempted to banish the negative energy her sister stirred.

Normally, she enjoyed the ride across Lake Michigan from New Bison to Chicago aboard her yacht, The Moon’s Muse, the last ride of the year before Winter set in. But not tonight. Not even the Mabon Ball to honor the Autumn Equinox, an event she looked forward to, could bring her out of the restless fit Angelica’s latest prank had caused.

According to the Wheel of the Year, the light of day and the darkness of night were in equal proportion, but the darkness of the Winter Solstice was about to take over just as the dark magic Angelica dabbled in could snuff out light and goodness in an instant.

“Well, I guess I’m ready then,” Gia’s soft sweet voice interrupted Belle’s silent brooding.

“You look stunning, my dear. Absolutely, divine.”

Belle had never seen her niece, Gaia’s only child, Gia, look more beautiful. She was simply radiant in the new gown they’d picked out together for the ball. The copper-beaded designer sheath was a perfect personification of the magickal enchantment of Mabon’s autumn splendor. It was beyond bewitching for the season of the Witch, especially for a woman who, thanks to her Aunt Angelica’s meddling, had no recollection that she was a witch.

Offering a silent “thank you” to the Lord and Lady, as well as to her best friend Suzie Witherspoon, tears filled Belle’s eyes, threatening to spill over her long lashes. It was Suzie and her family who had helped lead her to Gia, after five long years of having no idea where Angelica had hidden her.

“Why are you crying, Aunt Belle?” Gia asked, sitting down next to her on the white faux leather sofa in the yacht’s main salon.

“You look just like your mother. Looking at you, makes me feel as if I’m looking at her,” she said so softly she was almost whispering.

And, in a way, Belle knew that through Gia, she was seeing Gaia. If only she could break through Angelica’s powerful binding spell to once again connect with her sister on the magickal plane they once shared.

“I just wish I could remember her and remember how to be the good witch you and my mother raised me to be,” Gia said, frustration etched into her creased brows.

“Hopefully, you will after tonight’s ball,” Belle said, doing everything she could to make sure the universe continued to hear her will for her niece’s memory and powers to return, despite Angelica’s conspiring against that feat.

“I’m afraid, Aunt Belle.”

“So am I,” Belle said, telling her precious niece the truth, knowing it wouldn’t do either of them any good to sugarcoat the obstacles they had to face.

She turned Gia toward the gilt-edged dressing mirror still in the salon from when her stylist had delivered a variety of gowns to fit them both for the ball. The salon’s lighting danced across the thousands of earth-toned Swarovski crystals sweeping across Gia’s couture, halter-style Armani Privé gown. The effect truly was captivating and served as a perfect tribute to the colors of the season.

“Just remember,” she said, lightly squeezing her niece’s sculpted shoulders, trying to transfer as much warmth and love through her touch as possible, “you’re a Bishop, and somewhere inside of you, you’ve got the power to do this.”

“No offense, but Aunt Angelica is a Bishop, too.”

“So it says on paper,” Belle said, never believing that Angelica truly was born a Bishop. The dark power she thrived on just wasn’t in their gene pool.

“What do I do when I see her?” Gia asked, tiny goose bumps rising on her skin.

Belle tried to compensate for the chill that thoughts of Angelica always summoned by rubbing Gia’s arms with her hands. But, even as she did so, she felt that same chill cascading over her own flesh.

“The question really is – what will Angelica do when she sees you? But don’t worry. I’m not leaving your side. And Angelica wouldn’t dare make a scene in front of The Council and the neighboring covens.”

At least Belle didn’t think she would. But once she realized Gia had been found and brought back home to tap into her Bishop legacy, or relearn every skill if necessary, Angelica’s reaction could very well shock them all. If there was one thing Angelica Bishop excelled at, it was shock and awe.

Coming to Smashwords soon!!!

Here’s the scoop on this superfab set:

Amazon Top 100 Bestselling Humor Author D. D. Scott is back, along with her new co-author, David Slegg…this time, with their first Special Edition Boxed Set, featuring Books 1-3 of their Amazon Movers and Shakers List, Bestselling Series – The Stuck with a Series – and a short story prequel too.

Think Castle and Beckett gone-country with a bit of Bewitched, The Good Witch and Whoville tossed into the barnyard.

This four-book set includes…

STUCK WITH A SCHMUCK
(The Stuck with a Series Prequel)

What if you’re stuck with a schmuck on Cupid’s big day?

STUCK WITH A STIFF

The Stuck with a Series is Castle and Beckett 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.

STUCK WITH A SPELL

For Stuck with a Spell – Book Two in the Series – there’s a bit of Bewitched tossed into the mix. Think hex an ex.

Nicky Blane, a Bestselling Author and Farmer-in-the-making, doesn’t need to look far to find creative inspiration for his novels. His crazy-ass Aunt Liza, a wanna-be witch, lives next door. But this time, she’s blown it big-time with a hex on her ex that’s gone a wee bit awry.

Think graveyards and Voodoo dolls, spell-casting and cauldrons, potions, raw emotions, and more.

STUCK WITH SLEIGH BELLS

What if Santa had a double knee replacement and had to put his BFF Father Time and The Mom Squad’s Grams in charge of The Big Red Ride?

For Stuck with Sleigh Bells – Book Three of the Stuck with a Series – and the series’ first holiday novella – think Castle and Beckett, The Good Witch and Maxine in Whoville.

Bonus Content Included:

D. D. also treats you to a Sneak Peek at her latest Christmas book – THE BILLIONAIRES’ CHRISTMAS CLUB – co-authored with Bestselling Amazon Author Theresa Ragan.

About the Authors:

RG2E Featured Author Cate Dean on “How a Character Can Change Everything”

Happy Black Friday, Peeps!

Here’s a superfab fun post to read while you’re waiting in checkout lines today… 🙂

RG2E Featured Author Cate Dean on “How a Character Can Change Everything.”

Take it away, Cate…

If you were here for my last post, I talked about how adding two contest winners as characters changed the tone of the story. Dramatically.

In Carry On Wayward Son, Book 3 of The Claire Wiche Chronicles, it was a character I created that changed the story. But not only the story – this character changed the entire direction the series will take from this point.

Available for $3.99 at:

How did this happen? In one blinding flash of what I call my oh moment. As in “Oh – how did I not see that coming?”

Like the other two books, I wrote this one at a fast pace, not reading it through completely until it came back from my first beta. But this time, I surprised myself. I knew the story – I made it up, after all. But this one character, a character who was supposed to disappear after the story ended, this character became – important.

So important, it affects the lives of every other character in the book, and changes Claire’s life.

It wasn’t planned, but I am stunned and thrilled it happened. Because that character sets them all on a path that I haven’t explored yet, similar to where I was headed with the series, but not the same. It is exciting, and more than a bit scary, but I am looking forward to finding out what happens on that new path.

I hope you all come along with me.

Thanks for hanging out today – and to say thank you, I will be giving away 10 copies of A Gathering of Angels and Carry On Wayward Son. Want to win? Just leave a comment on how something in your life took you by surprise.

I look forward to hearing about your experiences.

Until next time – read on.

cheers,

~Cate
