Publisher’s Weekly said that “the salacious underside of Roman-occupied Britain comes to life” in this morning’s latest addition to our 200+ Free Book Alert listings….
(Ed. Note: About a year ago, acting on a recommendation by Seth Godin, I read a remarkable book entitled The War of Art: Winning the Inner Creative Battle by Steven Pressfield. It was a pretty remarkable book — all about removing or avoiding the sources of friction that were keeping me from getting done as much as I would like to get done — and it has had an effect on my life nearly every day since I read it.

Here’s the set-up:
Why is she helping writers the world over? Here’s the scoop…
Once upon a time her muses weren’t ticking. They were ticked off. Why? Because they were too damn tired and stressed out trying to find their way on the Yellow Brick Road to Publishing Oz. Screw the Happily Ever After. Her creative divas couldn’t produce past page one.
Saying that writing-for-publication is tough is the bolder-than-bold-faced understatement of the new millennium. And with today’s huge economic and technological changes, it ain’t gettin’ any easier.
But once D. D. shows you how to recognize, acknowledge and accept your muses’ afflictions and teaches you her tricks, tips and “trips” to treat the word witches of your writing world, you and your muses will be cranking out pages with gusto.
Plus, you won’t be alone in your journey. Her MUSE THERAPY tips and tricks continue to be apropos no matter where a writer is in his/her career. By sharing fantastic and at times roll on the floor, laugh out loud anecdotes she gathered – either interviewing or attending workshops given by the romance genre’s hottest stars – she proves this assertion.

I don’t know how D.D. Scott does it! Going from fiction to non-fiction writing and making both so much fun to read!!! As a writer, I was beginning to get ‘stuck’ a few times. When I found Muse Therapy, I did the exercises D.D. Scott suggested and my “lazy Lucy” went from the couch to the keyboard in seconds!! Now she’s “lucky Lucy,” and doesn’t fail me AT ALL!! When she does get lazy, I break out my Muse Therapy and read a couple passages to get Lucy back at the keyboard.
I’m not a writer, BUT, as an avid reader, this is awesome, too, as it gives you a great insight as to what it takes to creatively write a book. D.D. Scott has a great voice, & she is funny too, so the combination makes for a great read. You can learn so much & have fun doing it! Buy this one!
