It’s Wednesday which means it’s time for the Insecure Writers Support Group. The group blog postings are for us writers to support one another in our individual journeys. And if you’re like me, there are some insecurities.
With two of my books coming out in November and December, my insecurity is no one will like my stories. Maybe they’ll think my heroes and/or heroines are fake or flat. Or my descriptions aren’t enough or there is too much description. Or that the middle sags. Or the endings aren’t satisfying enough. I could go on and on.
And the closer I get to launch times, the grayer my hair turns. I swear! Where’s the hair dye?? Lol. Seriously, I’m so very nervous.
What scares me even more? My family and friends reading my books. 1) They’ll hate my writing. 2) The two sex scenes in The Swan Cove Murders are a little graphic My mom already said she wants a copy. She probably won’t read it. She’s not much of a reader. But, she’ll hold on to it forever. It would be a little awkward if she did read it, but not as bad as one of my sisters or nieces reading it. I’m sure after the first couple books, this will pass.
So, I guess the only thing I can do is hope for the best and believe in my ability and my writing.
Oh, and one more GREAT piece of news: Soul Mate Publishing sets to launch Next Wednesday, October 12th. Yay!! I'm excited! I will be having a launch party for them here on the same day. Please spread the news as everyone is invited to the party! I will post a blog hop this Sunday for everyone to sign up.
Hop along to others' blogs and lend a bit of support.
