On The Surface, (put in buy link if appropriate. If not leave it out) my latest book to be published by The Wild Rose Press, released world-wide on September 29, 2017. This multi-published journey of mine began in earnest in 2007 and has been going strong ever since.
It’s a thrill for me to have my work available for readers everywhere. More important along this trek are the people I’ve met, the friends I’ve made.
First and foremost, that most special group the readers. My reason for doing all this. They are very precious to me. Those who write to say they enjoy my stories and are waiting for more. Who take the time to leave a review. Always welcome, no matter what they have to say.
Then there’s my critique partner, Jannine Gallant, who helps to keep my writing fresh, my characters and plot lines feasible and true. A dirty job, but someone has to do it.
Editor at the Last Rose of Summer line, Kathy Cottrell who saw something in my work she liked long ago and never gave up on my prose until every word is right. My current editor at the Crimson Rose line at The Wild Rose Press, Ally Robertson is following in those footsteps and I so appreciate her assistance and support.
My colleagues at The Roses of Prose blog where we share our thoughts, our frustrations and our successes with each other and anyone else who cares to stop by. Collaboration on our short stories each December as an anthology gift to our readers, is the most fun for me. This year, my story started us out. Check the dates December 1, 2 and 3 to read Home For Christmas.
Finally, the one who makes it all happen for me in the virtual world, Florence Price of The Novel Difference who designed and manages my website. Florence also figures out and then fixes my various errors and omissions and such. In short, makes me look good out here.
By the way, some of my shorter works are available on my website for free. My gifts to those who have given me so much.
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!
Posting: The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. Visit others in the group and connect with your fellow writer – aim for a dozen new people each time.
Let’s rock the neurotic writing world!
