I Almost Missed It!


It’s the first Wednesday of the month and that means it’s time for the monthly meeting of the

Insecure Writers Support Group.

Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds! Posting: The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. Visit others in the group and connect with your fellow writer – aim for a dozen new people each time. Be sure to link to this page and display the badge in your post!

Let’s rock the neurotic writing world!

I am definitely feeling insecure this month. I am about to hand over Realize Your Writing Dreams to my new editor and I am so nervous! It still seems unreal that I am about to become the author of a third book.

Next month I will be teaching at not one but two writing conferences for the first time. I teach at a Community College and Facilitated a two year workshop series but these are writing conferences. I am equally excited and insecure.

This month I am facilitating three seminars on marketing for SCORE. Most would never think of SCORE as a source for help with a writing career. You should! The mentors are so supportive and best of all the services are free of charge!

I am so proud of these writers and I am looking forward to reading this anthology!

Congratulations to #IWSG Members on the Release of:

 Hero Lost

Mysteries of Death and Life

An Insecure Writer’s Support Group Anthology

Can a lost hero find redemption?

What if Death himself wanted to die? Can deliverance be found on a bloody battlefield? Could the gift of silvering become a prison for those who possessed it? Will an ancient warrior be forever the caretaker of a house of mystery?

Delving into the depths of the tortured hero, twelve authors explore the realms of fantasy in this enthralling and thought-provoking collection. Featuring the talents of Jen Chandler, L. Nahay, Renee Cheung, Roland Yeomans, Elizabeth Seckman, Olga Godim, Yvonne Ventresca, Ellen Jacobson, Sean McLachlan, Erika Beebe, Tyrean Martinson, and Sarah Foster.

Hand-picked by a panel of agents and authors, these twelve tales will take you into the heart of heroes who have fallen from grace. Join the journey and discover a hero’s redemption!

In this marvelous collection of speculative fiction, we journey through twelve wonderfully written tales to find out if the tortured hero can be redeemed. – Christine Rains, author

The authors have done us a favour by all being darned good at their craft. Recommended for fantasy fans. – Gordon Long, author
