That was the subject of an email I received yesterday from my publisher and I have to tell you, I did a double-take when I saw it.  The first thing to pop into my head was thank goodness L&L Dreamspell is in Texas ’cause they can’t see me from there!

As it turns out, one of the owners, Linda Houle, she of the fabulous cover art, has a new non-fiction book out, The Naked Truth About Book Publishing and it sounds like something every author should read:

The Naked Truth about Book Publishing takes a quick and dirty peek at the realities of publishing. Whether you are an author, independent publisher, or just an avid reader, it’s critical to know what’s happening and how current changes affect you!”

It’s available now on Kindle–just click on the title above and it’ll take you to the listing on Amazon!–and will soon hit other on-line retailers.  I haven’t read it yet but I’ve talked to a couple of people who have and they’re raving about it.  Congratulations, Linda, can’t wait to read it!

In other news, Betty Dravis has a new interview up on the Dames of Dialogue blog.  This one is with Katherin Kovin Pacino–yes, she’s Al’s step-mom–and she’s also an actress.  As usual Betty asked intriguing questions and Ms. Pacino deftly answered them.  It’s a fascinating interview, one you really don’t want to miss so hop on over to the Dames’ Blog and check it out!  And don’t forget to leave a comment!

In my everyday life, I’ve been planting my garden–yippee for spring!–and keeping an eye on my guys who are on a roadtrip right now.  They’re not doing very well but hey, it’s early yet.  We still have scads of baseball to play this year–did I mention it’s spring?  Yippee!  I’m also working on Whistling Woman–about 45,000 words!–and doing some research on the third book in my Shadows series–Cherokee wolf legends!–while slowly but surely doing some spring cleaning–the only part of spring I don’t like!

And that’s about it from me.  Time to go back to work…

The latest Dames’ Dozen is up and this one is a real humdinger–Betty Dravis interviews Marissa Autumn.  Betty calls her a Teen Dynamo and after reading the interview, I have to agree.  This young woman is only nineteen years old but wait till you read the list of things she’s already done with her life.  Impressive…and okay, I’ll admit, a little tiring.

Hop on over to the Dames of Dialogue and check it out!  I think I’ll take a short nap or drink a gallon of coffee and see if I can’t drum up a fraction of the energy Marissa has!

to bring you a special Friday post from Betty Dravis on Senator Ted Kennedy.  Yep, that’s right, Friday Favorites is on hold today and in its place is a post about Senator Kennedy’s death by Betty, our celebrity interviewing Dame.  She actually had the chance to interview him early on in her career and her story is heart-warming, to say the least.  Who would’ve thought a man like Ted Kennedy would take time out of his busy schedule to sit down and talk to a reporter with a not-so-well-known newspaper?

I wouldn’t have, but Betty’s here to prove me wrong.  Hop on over to the Dames of Dialogue blog and read Betty’s take on arguably one of the greatest men of our times.

Fabulous interview up today on the Dames of Dialogue blog.  Betty Dravis interviews her Dream Reachers co-author, Chase Von.  I felt like I was eavesdropping on a couple of authors as they caught up on what’s been happening in their lives the past few months–easy, laid-back, entertaining conversation with a dollop of inspiration on the side!

Can’t ask for more than that so hop on over and enjoy!

*grumble*  Do I have to type it again?  But Mom…okay, okay, sheesh, don’t forget to leave a comment!

DoDsmallSummer’s heating up and so are the Dames of Dialogue.  We’ve added two new Dames–more on them later–and a new feature, Friday Favorites.  Starting in August, you’ll get a post every Friday about one of our favorite things.  Should be a lot of fun and you can find the schedule under the Friday Favorite page onthe Dames of Dialogue blog.  We’ll also be giving out the Dames’ Kiss of Approval.  So tune in on Fridays and see what makes the Dames pucker up!

Now, for the newest Dames.  First, we have Betty Dravis, a multi-published fiction author, and co-author with Chase Von of Dream Reachers, a nonfiction look at people who dared to reach for their personal dream.  Second, we have Laurel-Rain Snow, another multi-published ficiton author.  To read more about either of the new Dames, just click on their names and read their author pages.

If you do, you might notice that both of the new Dames live in California.  Yep, with the summer heat and humidity here in the South, the Dames have been indulging in a little bit of California Dreamin’.  Seems I also remember something about “it never rains in California.”  With all the rain we’ve had this year and now the frequent thunderstorms, I could really go for that!

Hop on over to the Dames of Dialogue blog and meet our newest Dame, Betty Dravis! Miss Betty answers the Dames’ Dozen and offers a fascinating look into the life of a California chick who swings both ways…

Get your mind out of the gutter, I meant she writes both fiction and nonfiction!

Okay, you know the drill, but I’ll remind you anyway; don’t forget to leave a comment!
