The day before launch, May 2012
I spend a lot of my writing time on our sailboat, which is also our home for much of the year. And as we finally moved aboard this past weekend--till late fall, anyway--I've decided to incorporate observations about the sailing life in these posts, especially as they parallel my writing process and current work on Reese's Leap, the follow-up to Matinicus. So grab your life jacket and join me. Promise we won't tip (much, anyway), and we'll even do all the cooking!

Welcome aboard!

Win a Personalized Copy of "Matinicus"!

Matinicus has gone live! It's now available through Amazon.com (both softcover and Kindle formats) and Smashwords. The early reviews are pretty terrific, and to celebrate, I've decided to give away 3 signed, personalized copies.

This is the deal. To be automatically entered for a chance at one of the books, simply hop over to FB and like my Author Page (Facebook.com/Author.Darcy.Scott). Winners will be randomly drawn by Ms. Lacey Canapetti (my beautiful and multi-talented granddaughter) on Thursday, May 24th.

Good luck!
