D. D. Scott-ville 2011: The Year of the E-Book & Cross-Pollination
Happy Winter Wonderland, D. D. Scott-ville!
I'm writing to you in the midst of a big ass blizzard!!! We haven't had one of these monsters for awhile!
I opened our side door to let our beloved Buckley out to do his bizzness, and we both were victims to the wall of snow then drifted half-way up our door! Way to start the work-week at 5 AM!!! LOL!!!
Today, I thought I'd fill you in on what's in store for D. D. Scott-ville 2011!!!
And here's a hint:
D. D. Scott-ville 2011 is The Year of the E-Book & Cross-Pollination
Y'all are in for a huge treat - beginning January 1st - when I announce a dynamic, new partnership regarding All-Things-Ebooks. Hold onto your Spanx and such here 'cause look who's joining me:
High-Class Hillbilly Writer Tonya Kappes http://tonyakappes.com/
The Amazing Lola Cruz Mystery Series Author Misa Ramirez http://misaramirez.com/
Debut Author L. A. Lopez http://www.thenanablog.com/ http://www.irishsistersknits.com/
I'm a tellin' ya, we're gonna have Everything You Ever Wanted and Now Need To Know About All-Things-Ebooks and E-publishing Too!!!
So stay-tuned for much more on that...but in the mean time, here's the scoop on all the D. D. Scott Sexy Sassy Smart Stories comin' atchya in 2011...
Here's where the Cross-Pollination comes into play!
Valentine's Day 2011 will be the release of Book Three in my Bootscootin' Books Series - BUCKLES ME BABY.
Think paparazzi-hell and Ponzi-scheme fall-out meet home-shopping and Babies “R” Us.
Manhattan-raised, marketing and promotion impresario Audrey Holtz has taken her friend’s belt buckles from Music City boutique favorites to home shopping channel wait-list-only items. But she’s traded in her high-power stilettos for Sketchers ‘cause her feet are swollen and killing her. Pregnancy is a bitch, especially when you’ve assumed a false identity to dodge paparazzi on account of your Madoff-style, Ponzi-scheming parents.
Nashville TN homebuilder Damian Baker is screwed and not in the construction sense of the word. Who would have thought the first room he’d be designing and building for his dream home would be a nursery...for his and Audrey’s twins? But he’s hell-bent on providing well for and protecting the woman he loves plus the children he can’t wait to meet.
Audrey and Damian may not be able to hide from the camera lenses, the baby blues, and belt buckle mania, although they can hide behind their love. But is their love strong enough to deflect the blinding glare of the spotlight?
What does that have to do with Cross-Pollination?
How 'bout we start with what the hell is Cross-Pollination?
Cross-Pollination is a marketing term - which I learned from one of my mentors, bestselling author J. A. Konrath http://jakonrath.blogspot.com/ - referring to a hybrid cross of material and/or products used to bring a devoted audience of one product into the devoted ranks of customers of a new product.
Okay...that's kinda my definition of the concept...but wow will I be showin' ya how that works in D. D. Scott-ville for 2011.
Here's a hint:
You'll see the concept in action, first-hand, with the release of my new Cozy Mystery Series in April 2011! Think Stephanie Plum meets your Avon Lady!!!
And to gear-up for my new Cozy Mysteries, you'll want to start by reading my Bootscootin' Books.
Because many of the Bootscootin' Books characters will cross-pollinate into my new Cozy Mystery World too!!!
Think about STOMPIN' ON STETSONS Aunt Tulip...with a gun...and her aphrodisiacs!!!
Or how about BOOTSCOOTIN' BLAHNIKS The Mom Squad taking their Charlie's Angels routine to all new levels?!
'Course what would you say too if me and my partners put together a big 'ole 2011 Christmas Anthology with all our crazy characters?!
How fun is all this fabulous scoop?!
Can't wait to share more with you in the days and weeks ahead!!!
'Til then...stay warm and cozy...inside...curled up with a great book...'cause it's a blizzard out there y'all!!!
Sexy Sassy Smart D. D. Scott-ville 2011 Wishes --- D. D. Scott
