#IWSG: Blurbs or Titles

 Happy Insecure Writer's Support Group Day. IWSG is the brainchild of 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. We are rockin' the neurotic writing world!

The awesome co-hosts for the November 3 posting of the IWSG are Kim Lajevardi, Victoria Marie Lees, Joylene Nowell Butler, Erika Beebe, and Lee Lowery! 

Because many of you are participating in NaNoWriMo, my post today is shorter than normal. My attitude toward writing is improving. Last month, Jean Davis and I had a booth at Fandom Fest in sw Michigan. My 1st book event this year. I had a great time. This Saturday, we're doing a craft & vendor show near Grand Rapids. After a year and a half, I'm finally getting back in the groove.

This month's question: What's harder to do, coming up with your book title or writing the blurb?

Normally, I'd say the blurb, but not with my current cozy mystery, 4th in the Alex O'Hara PI mystery series. Each title contains alliteration: The Case of the Bygone Brother, The Case of the Fabulous Fiancé, The Case of the Meddling Mama. Those titles were fairly easy to come up with. Not for the 4th. During the main characters' wedding, the groom is arrested. The Case of the Wrecked Wedding is the best I can do, so far. I'm still working on it.

Last month, our founder Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh released a new novel, Dragon of the Stars. Alex writes fantastic science fiction, so I had to get it. If you like an exciting, page-turning adventure, you have to read this book. Excellent world building and an arrogant, self-absorbed main character I wanted to slap . . . at first. LOL Boy, does he change. Treat yourself to a great read and get Alex's book. (Or ask Santa for it.) You can find Dragon of the Stars on Amazon
