Insecure Writer's Support Group

I can't believe it's May already! That means the Insecure Writer's Support Group is back! Take a moment to thank our founder, Alex J. Cavanaugh and visit the IWSG Site to join in and read others' posts for the day.

I actually don't have a lot to say this month. I'm writing in my New Adult fantasy project and waiting for the final version of my young adult fantasy cover! By June, I will know when I am publishing Fractured Princess!

If you haven't signed up for the IWSG e-mails, you should. This month's e-mail focused on marketing as a self-published author, and I intend to soak up that information over the next few weeks. I'm still very excited.

The question of the month is: What was an early experience where you learned that language had power?

I'm not sure how to answer that, really. I think it's because I've always been someone who loved to read and write, there hasn't been that type of epiphany? I guess stepping into Narnia that first time, or falling in love with A Christmas Carol; those stories remain some of my favorite childhood tales, and they couldn't have been had the words and imagery not been so powerful.

Have a great May!


  1. Those are good word memories.
    Keep us posted on the book so we can help spread the word.

  2. I loved stepping into the world of Narnia! I still have the box set, although not the original from childhood. Congrats on your writing progress and good luck with your new project.

  3. You must be so excited about publishing your book!! Hope your new project is going well, too.

  4. Awesome that you are moving forward on publishing your book. I talked about a few ways I can help out on my blog today if you're interested.

  5. Yay to heading on with publishing your book. How exciting! I loved and love get lost in those worlds. It's always like magic.

  6. Thanks for that reminder about IWSG's newsletter; I'm going to read their tips for self-publishers! And, congratulations on your progress. Sometimes spring is distracting, but it's a wonderful season to cherish each day -- AND to celebrate your writing.
