    Ohhh Yeahhh!!! The First DARC Review For STOMPIN' ON STETSONS Is In!!!

    Lots of Happy Dancin' in D. D. Scott-ville today, Y'all!!!


    Because my first DARC (Digital Advanced Reader Copy) Review for STOMPIN' ON STETSONS is in!!!

    Here's what fabulous reviewer Lisa Fisk (of had to say (and I'll be linking to her full review as soon as I have it):

    DD Scott's second book, Stompin' on Stetsons is a fun holiday read. True to romantics everywhere, the good girl gets the good guy and they have a rosy future - that in itself makes it worthy. But for me, I actually fell in love with the secondary characters and would love to know how their lives turn out!

    Aunt Tulip, Grams, Midge make a cast of strong, older women who will do what it takes to keep their families strong, happy, and successful.

    I don't know that I could have lived with my own personal Aunt Tulip, sex therapist extraordinaire, but she definitely gave Jules character and background. Grams and Midge gave Cody a great work ethic and gave him great insight into not only older women, but into Jules.

    The Nashville DD Scott has created makes me want to get on a plane to go visit and have some fried chicken.

    How's that for some fabulous, Squeee-worthy news?!

    If you only knew how beyond terrified I've been to actually seek-out Reviews! Talk about a huge, huge hurdle!

    And here I'm the one always saying to "Go for the gusto" and "be a gutsy romance writer girl". But let me tell ya somethin' ain't easy puttin' your work out there to be "reviewed" for its merit and number of stars rankings.

    But I finally did it!

    And for that I'm happy dancin' today!!!

    Now I'm not naive and thinking that this first review means all the other ones will make me feel like dancin'. Oh no.

    But I've got Queen Nora - yes, as in the super-fabulous Nora Roberts - to help me with that. Nora had this to say about Reviews during her RWA10 Keynote Luncheon Address:

    "Reader A still loves what Reader B thinks is crap."

    Then she went on to say about writing-for-publication in general:

    "Publication is wild wicked with nose-dive, near miss rejections...Suck it up! Hard is what makes it special...But we are writers. That's what we do!"

    And that's exactly what I did by goin' for the gusto with my first ever DARC Experiment!!!

    Oh, Tonya, I've just been a mess waiting on the reviews to start coming in!!!

    And yes, I know, I teach my Muse Therapy participants to "Go for the gusto" and be "ultra-brave gutsy girls"...but damn, I'm tellin' ya...there are times when even my own damn, super-great advice is tougher-than-tough to take!!!
