Look What I Found!

It's amazing what you find when you're checking your feed. I was checking last night's feed to see if anyone had linked to it as yet and via sphere found this great site called Journal of an Avid Reader. Now just the name alone would have been enough to make me like the site, however upon perusal, I found a fellow soul mate.

The site's author has been a reader for years. Not that she comes out and says it, however, in the reading of her frank and insightful reviews you realize she's suffering from the malady many long time readers are suffering: the we-want-originality-and-substance malady.

I could have easily spent all day reading her reviews and spending way too much money, or saving myself some money, however then I couldn't share the great news with you ASAP. Anyway, give a visit.

You won't be sorry.

Holiday Greetings

Hi Folks,

How has the new year been treating you so far? The remembrance of Martin Luther King Jr's Birthday has come and gone. Valentine's Day was a snow out (and I was all set to dance for it too) and Presidents' Day is here. I just want to wish each and everyone of you a Happy
Belated MLK Day, Valentine's Day and hope you enjoy your President's Day off.

If you've been wondering, what has Dee been up to? Well, Dee went out and got herself a J O B! It's only Part Time/Floater status however I've got a feeling that that won't last for long ... stay tuned for future updates.

I've also become pretty active in my new home church. I'm now the Choir Director of the Youth Choir and the newsletter coordinator. My brother-in-law, my former pastor, has been appointed as the New Youth Pastor so we're a team again ... YAY!!!! You can view the newsletter via pdf here or the Blog in progress here:

It entailed a month of hard work pulling it together creatively and chasing down folk for submissions or Ad content, however it was great fun and a truly pleasurable undertaking.

My promo Website and Review Team are really starting to take shape ... here's our first review for 2007, something we could all use, a reminder of all the things we've heard previously and few we haven't as we try to figure out

Please Nominate Me!

Hi Folks,

Hope this note finds you well. I know we tried it last year (for which I thank those of you who voted) and I didn't win. The good news is, we get another shot at it again this year.

For the newbies wondering what the heck I'm talking about, I'm talking about's Best New Author Award.

I'm currently a nominee for's Best New Author Award, and I have exactly eleven days to round up enough nominations, in order to make it into the top twenty finalists, I need as many people to nominate me as possible.

I'd love it if you'd take a moment to nominate me, D.S. White, for the Best New Author Award 2007.

Now for those of you wondering, why I started so late. Well you see that old fear of success feeling reared its head again and I've been doing the "do it!" ... "don't do it!" dance. You know that kind of way. Finally, I decided that this is going to be the year of "You have not, because you ask not" so here I am, doing what is hard for me: asking.

Thanks in advance,
