IWSG's Two Year Anniversary
In case this is your first time hearing about us, our wonderful group, founded by our awesome 'Ninja' great Alex J. Cavanaugh, meets once a month to encourage and inspire one another through our writing journeys. It's real simple to join us. Go here to sign up and visit a few of the blogs listed. Leave some encouragement as your words could make a difference in someone's life. And feel free to post one of your own.
This month is IWSG's two year anniversary! Wow, and it's been a great couple of years. I've met tons of new people through here and have had so much encouraging words come from them. They've helped me through a couple of rough spots.
I'm going through the publishing cycle again. If you've been here before, you know I wrote a new paranormal romantic suspense, loosely titled Boneknapper. Well, with some great help from my sister-in-law, Kathy, it has turned into a full blown series, 6 books to be exact. (It never fails, I begin crawling and before you know it, I'm leaping into whatever full force and then some.) Don't get me wrong ... I love it! But, that doesn't mean anyone else will. I've sent Boneknapper and the summaries for the other 5 books into my publisher.
And it's back to the stomach flip flopping, nail biting, praying I don't get a rejection. UGH.
However, one of the things this group has taught me so well is when you fall, dust yourself off and get back up again. And of course, go at it full force.
We have such an awesome group here. If this is your first time coming in and reading some of our blog posts or your fifth, but still haven't signed up, what are you waiting for? You won't be sorry you did :)
