#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 awesome co-hosts this month are Yolanda Renee, Tyrean Martinson, Madeline Mora-Summonte , LK Hill, Rachna Chhabria, and JA Scott! 

                              This Happened on July 1.


I'm honored and thrilled to have received these awards, and to be among many talented writer's and author's.

It definitely helps to boost my self-esteem when it comes to writing. 

Everyone will not like my writing or my books, and that's expected and that's okay. As I've posted numerous times, I can't understand why people will go out of their way to write nasty or condescending reviews. 


This month the IWSG has posed a question:


What's the best thing someone has ever said about your writing?

The best is when a perfect stranger messaged me on my FB authors page to exclaim how much she loved reading one of my books. The cherry on top is calling me one of her favorite authors! 

 Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a great July!

  14. I love when fans reach out--that is definitely the BEST. Especially if you write for young readers like I do. There's nothing like an email or letter from a 10-year-old, saying how much they like your book.
