It's the 1st Wednesday. Happy Insecure Writers Support Group Day. IWSG is the brainchild Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh.
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!
Thanks, Alex, for starting this group and keeping it going. And thanks to this month's awesome hosts: Christopher D. Votey, Madeline Mora-Summonte, Fundy Blue, and Chrys Fey!
Instead of bemoaning the fact that I’m still working on my WIP, I have good news. My cozy mystery, The Case of the Meddling Mama, is finished. I did a happy dance after I shipped it off to my editor.
Once again, Alex O’Hara is up to her ears in mysteries. After surviving an attempted murder, all she wants is R&R time with Nick Palzetti. But his mother leaving his father (“that horse’s patoot”) and moving in with Alex puts a crimp in their plans. Then Nick leaves on assignment and the teen she rescued from an abusive father believes his buddy is doing drugs. Meanwhile, Alex has two easy cases to take her mind off her shaky relationship with Nick—a philandering husband and a background check on a client’s boyfriend. Piece of cake.
Release date: April 17, 2017. Available for pre-order at a reduced price.
Still, I have the usual insecurities when releasing a new book. Will people buy it? Will they like it? Will they leave a review? A good one, hopefully. But none of that can reduce the joy of completing a story and getting it out there for others to enjoy.
Because April is the A to Z Challenge (which I’m not participating in, btw), this post is shorter than usual. Have fun, all who are participating. This week we’re traveling (again), so I’ll be late in responding and visiting you all.
