Newest Treasures and Sunday Report Card
Sunday, February 26th, 2012

As usual, I have tons to catch you up on today. There’s some fun stuff in here along with the dry boring report, but you can’t appreciate sweet without sour, right? ~DD

Latest Treasures

On Friday, rather than being a good author, I headed to Hot Springs with my daughter and SIL to hunt for things for her new house. If you haven’t heard me mention it before, we bought a fix-er-upper house across the street from mine and have basically begun gutting the thing. Anyway, Friday, we went to buy a sink and knobs for the new kitchen cabinets. On our way back, we stopped at a flea market. The Red-Headed Hellion and I love to hunt for treasure. See what we found?


My daughter found this buried on a shelf. When she held it up, I think she actually expected for me to let her keep it. LOL! Jeannie’s miiinnne! Doesn’t King Kong look like he’s spying on her from over the top of my crystal ball?


I still have a major girl crush on Xena! And now I have the doll to prove it. I sooooo want to break her out of her box. Think I’ll have to so she can play with Thor—she’ll break him like a twig!

The Promo Ho Contest continues! Check the Contest page for details about how you can win one of TWO $25.00 gift certificates! And on Tuesday, I will have a brand new contest with a fun or strange (haven’t made up my mind yet which—but definitely not Jeannie!) prize for you to win. So, you see, you HAVE to stop by to check out my blog. May as well make me your daily habit, because you’ll forget to be here on Tuesday.

Sunday Report Card

Not ball-of-fire production this week, but not too shabby either.
1) I worked on the opening scenes of CITBE—after I did a ton of research on St. Louis Cemetery #1 in New Orleans and voodoo loas. The story’s starting to gel, so going is slow as I feel my way through it.
2) I completed copyedits on My Sweet Succubus and it’s on it’s way to publication in March. Woot!
3) And I started a new short story for another call for submissions from Cleis.

    I’m so jealous of the Zena doll. And not surprised at all at what you’ve accomplished in the last few days.

    Too bad you don’t live in sw PA. The 1st Sunday every June the town holds a ‘Fleatique on the Mon’. Houses and antique places hold yard sales (roughly 3 miles of them) on Main Street. Lots of fun. Plus the library has their annual book sale. As for the doll…I have a Sabrina Duncan, Kathryn Janeway and a Napoleon Solo!

    Marcella! She’s miiiiinnnne! LOL I always detested Gabriella because I didn’t think she was good enough for Xene. Of course, I fantasized that I was the sidekick!

    Cindy! That sounds like pure heaven. And I’m jealous of your collection!

    i had a major girl heroine worship thing for Xena too. i was sooo mad when they took the show off my Dish programming and put a stupid reality t.v. thing on.

    i know that you can buy all of the seasons and even some of the props, like swords, and things at this website: http://www.legendaryheroes (dot) com. they also have Hercules, and Highlander.
