Muse Therapy: To The "Rescue"
Happy Tuesday, D. D. Scott-ville!
With the next Muse Therapy Online Session about to kick-off this coming Saturday, October 1st...
I'm over the moon to be givin' ya a Sneak Peek at some of the superfab new Muse Therapy Tips, Tricks and Treats I'm now using to keep my muses crankin' out pages with gusto!
As many of you know, one of the ways I keep my muses full of energy and always ready to dance like nobody's watching is by living an organic and all-natural lifestyle.
I'm close to being complete vegan in my approach to healthy eating, and I dable in yoga a bit as well as use all-natural remedies when it comes to healing.
I can't believe the difference in my energy levels just because I watch what I put into my body.
I really do think there's a ton of truth to the harm preservatives and chemicals like growth hormones and additives do to our bodies.
That said, many of u ask me:
"D.D., what are you putting in your coffee and cocktails, Girlfriend?! You always have sooo much energy and are sooo happy!"
Well...I drink my Keurig-made coffee, extra-bold and black, or sometimes with just one all-natural sugar packet added. And as far as my cocktails, I have Happy Hour every afternoon with either a glass of wine or a Black Russian, Hot Apple Cider with Brandy or a martini.
And here's another fun way I now treat my muses too...
My latest discovery:
Made in Switzerland, this flower based homeopathic remedy is made from clematis, impatiens, elderflower, orange and beeswax. http://www.bachflower.com/
I stumbled across these little gems in InStyle magazine as something Salma Hayek and her daughter use while flying. And Salma also uses them to keep calm on crazy busy days.
Thanks sooo much for the superfab tip, Salma!
I really do think these pastilles work, and they're such fun to show your peeps too!
I recently took them to our local County Council meeting, which is definitely an occasion for much-needed stress relief!!! LOL!!!
Healthy bodies - as stress-free as we can get 'em - make for happy and productive muses too.
See y'all "in therapy"...Muse Therapy that is...LOL!
You can sign-up anytime right here:
And now, thanks to my new Muse Therapy Online Community, you no longer have to worry about class beginning and end dates...we're there whenever you need us!!!
Cheer to learning how to rein in and reign over your creative divas and dans

Happy Tuesday, D. D. Scott-ville!
And Welcome Autumn...that's right...it's almost here...this coming Friday!!!
Now then...what does that mean here in D. D. Scott-ville?
What's still coming in D. D. Scott-ville to finish-out 2011?
Well...how 'bout 4 New Releases...just in time for the Holiday Season!!!
Here's the scoop:
October 2011 – FLUID FULFILLMENT (The Mom Squad Mini-Mayhem Mysteries #1)
October 2011 – LICENSED FOR LOVE (The Mom Squad Mini-Mayhem Mysteries #2)

So what are The Mom Squad Mini-Mayhem Mysteries?
Welcome to my next D. D. Scott-ville Adventure...
The Mom Squad Mini-Mayhem Mysteries
I had a ball writing The Bootscootin’ Books and just couldn’t stand parting with all my quirky-crazy characters. So...I brought ‘em all along for my Cozy Cash Mysteries plus added-to my ensemble casts and zany crews.
In the mean time, I had sooo many of you requesting new stories, featuring my Bootscootin' Books and Cozy Cash Mysteries’ Mom Squad Characters, that I decided I'd treat y'all to short stories too!
Each Mom Squad Mini-Mayhem Mystery (short story) will feature at least one of The Mom Squad quirky-crazy, blue-haired Charlie's Angels wanna-be's!
You'll get to meet their extended families PLUS learn the unique skill each Mom Squad Member has been trained-to by The Cozy Cash Mysteries' QuarterMaster R.
FLUID FULFILLMENT – Mom Squad Mini-Mayhem Mystery #1 -features Roxy's mom Lily Vaughn, who some say is now fairly gifted in Jujitsu.
LICENSED FOR LOVE – Mom Squad Mini-Mayhem Mystery #2 - features Jules’ Aunt Tulip, who rumor has it, is now not just a sex therapist, but also a femme fatale.
Thanks also to the request of all u superfab D. D. Scott-ville readers and fans, I’m bringing you a D. D. Scott Special Edition Ebook Boxed Set in November 2011.
If you’re like me, when my peeps tell me about a new author, I want to read all the books by that author in order. That way, I never miss a thing about any of the characters and their lives between the pages.
With that in mind, I created the D. D. Scott Special Edition Ebook Boxed Set.
Very soon, you can one-click-buy my entire backlist and know the exact order in which to read the books - as that’s the order you’ll find them as you read through the Boxed Set collection.
This Boxed Set is the perfect gift to treat yourself to both my Bootscootin’ and my Cozy Cash Mystery Worlds.
In addition, it makes the perfect Kindle Gift Copy for all your peeps who love romantic comedies and comedic capers. If you haven’t tried out the Kindle Gift Copy Feature, check it out! Just go to the Amazon Page for any of my books or collections and choose the option that says “Give as a Gift”. All you need is your recipient’s email address.
And speaking of gifts and the 2011 Holiday Season...
My first ever Cozy Cash Christmas Novella - HULLABALOO AND HOLLY TOO - plus superfab Christmas novellas from the amazing Tonya Kappes, Lee Lopez, and from across the pond (as in a UK Author) Talli Roland – will be all bundled-up for you in one rockin’ Christmas Anthology - MADNESS UNDER THE MISTLETOE.
I'm over the moon for HULLABALOO AND HOLLY TOO - think Will and Kate gone Bond, James Bond in The Grinch's Who-ville.
Now then...for 2012:
Rumor has it, you can expect a Mom Squad Mini-Mayhem Mysteries Collection, as well as at least three more Cozy Cash Mysteries and a couple other waaay wonderful releases too...all-told, I'll have 11 new releases in 2012!!!
Nothin' beats treatin' my readers and fans to great books for great prices!!!
So stay-in your comfy reading chairs and prepare to continue to LOL for months and years to come!!!

So get to lettin' Kindle know that BOOTSCOOTIN' BLAHNIKS is now FREE on Smashwords!!!
Right underneath my ranking on BOOTSCOOTIN' BLAHNIKS' Amazon Page, you will see a button to click that says "tell us about a lower price". Click there and let 'em know that the book is now free on Smashwords.
