Just what the heck have I been doing??? Stuff.

First of all… AYYYYY! I know, it has been awhile since this blog has seen anything except a book review. I DO read a lot but I don’t like talking about much else so that’s all I have been posting. I wanted to give a VERY brief update on stuff coming up, namely my first author signing event, which is going to be EPIC!     This event is going to be FUN IN A BUN (I don’t know what that means, I assume it means ‘a good time’)… let’s just say it’s going to be LIT. Literally. A room full of your fave indie authors with their books for you to peruse and buy… including ME! I’ll have copies of Brunch at Ruby’s and A Thin Line (very possible that I could have Same Time Next Week, it depends on shipping time) for sale. If you’re local to Atlanta and you want a paperback copy of any of my books, please do stop by come see me, as well as everyone else on the list. There will be giveaways and intimate conversations… it will be a great time! If you need information, please do drop me a line here at dlwhite [at] the sweetescape.net or hit me up on any of my social media sites. Ya’ll know where to find me! What else have I been doing? Not much. Really. And I’ve been kinda enjoying it. I love water and beaches and traveling to them so I’ve been going here and there, standing in the ocean, digging my toes in the sand, enjoying a long day at the lake. Reading books and thinking about writing them. Thinking is writing, right? Unfortunately I have been in a writing slump for awhile. I have a good burst and then get hit with the ‘now what’ stick. And before you suggest plotting, GO AWAY. I’m working on it. This is a problem I need to solve for myself. Just… emoting. I do […]






[Review] The Blackbirds by Eric Jerome Dickey-

[Review] The Blackbirds by Eric Jerome Dickey-

Eric Jerome Dickey has always been a detailed, decadent writer. From one of the first books I ever read by him, Friends and Lovers, I appreciated that I felt like I was ‘in the scene’, like I could go to LA and drive around, because he’d been so descriptive, down to the number of streetlights one might encounter on Crenshaw Boulevard. So when one sits down to read an EJD book, one should not expect to skip and flit over details.



Sample Sunday: Leslie’s Curl & Dye- May the best man win

Sample Sunday: Leslie’s Curl & Dye- May the best man win

Leslie Sutton and Kade “KC” Coleman find themselves at odds when a KC opens a family salon that directly competes with Leslie’s small town beauty shop. But when Potter Lake’s Mayor reveals his true motivations, the two must set aside their squabble and work together to save the sweet, southern, slow moving town– and of course saving each other along the way.

As always, this is unedited and subject to change.

#SampleSunday: Leslie’s Curl & Dye -“Your mouth is big as I don’t know what.”

I… am not sure what this story is or where it is going, but on my way out the door one Friday evening, something started writing itself in my head and Leslie’s Curl & Dye won’t go away. It’ll probably be a short story… I don’t know. We’ll see where it goes!  Anyhoozle, I wanted to post something new since Sam’s is still revving up. Hope you enjoy and I hope you see more. NOTE: This is a long snip, so grab a cuppa and take a seat!
