#IWSG




Join Alex J. Cavanaugh and a multitude of writer's in this monthly hop to help support one another!


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!



The co-hosts for January are:

I can honestly say that I've been extremely busy this month, and thoughts of insecurity hadn't burrowed into my flustered brain as of late.

I'd like to give some advice~~ If at all possible, never, ever release a book around the holidays. Besides family obligations, shopping, wrapping presents, cooking, baking, sending Christmas cards, and finding time for promoting my new release, I was losing it.

And my craziness isn't over. My daughter is expecting baby #2 on February 13th!!! YAY!!! AND, Wickedly They Dream will be Re-Released on February 20th.

I didn't make any New Years Resolutions, however, I would like to slow down and take a breather.



Have a Good Month!!!

  1. Congratulations on the imminent arrival! I appear to have got my book release schedule muddled with my personal life too. I'm expecting baby No 2 this spring and have left myself just a few months to write, edit, and publish the second book in my series. Oops!

  9. What an adorable cat pic! I sure hope you get to take a breather during the next two months even with the baby and the release happening. You have to take time for yourself, otherwise it isn't worth it.

  15. Taking a breather sounds good! Although my word for the year is "strong" as in live strong, write strong, etc - I think that part of gaining that strength has to come from a good rest.
    Congrats on your re-release and on your soon-to-be-here grand baby!
