Insecure Writers Support Group: Blah Blah Blah

Wow, has it been a month since my last Insecure Writer's Support Group post? Many thanks to Alex Cavanaugh for hosting!

I'm trying to think of something new that I'm insecure about, but really, it's just the same old stuff: Should I self-publish and is my novel good enough? I know, blah blah blah! 

Well, I've decided to self-publish. My final critique is due in the next couple of weeks and I'll be working on final edits during August and hopefully setting up a blog tour for a mid to late September release. *Yikes!*

So, of course, any advice is welcome. AND if you're interested in hosting me, posting about a cover reveal or the new book release, please let me know. If not.....I'll be stalking you.

That's about all I have for today, EXCEPT, that I'm hosting a giveaway today in celebration of the month-long awesomeness of the Buccaneer Blogfest. One of the giveaways is mine, and the other is sponsored by Curiosity Quills - lots of good stuff will be given away.

Oh, and since this is the IWSG post, I'm pretty insecure about whether or not the rafflecopter will work. Yep, rafflecopter virgin here. Moving on...

So I will have two posts today! Look for my second post either right before or after this one.

Hmmm, I can't help thinking what would happen if I scheduled them to both post at the same time...yeah, cuz I think about strange things like that...

And what are you up to on this fine hump day?

  1. Good luck with your book.

    I'm still waiting on a submission to know whether that will be my next step - it's a scary wait...

  2. Good to hear you've made the decision to self-publish! Now you can move forward and finally get your book out into the world!! :D Awesome!! As for rafflecopter, I've never used it so I can't offer any advice. But I'm sure you've got it under control. :)

  10. Great news! How exciting!!! :)

    What am I doing? Now that my follower gadget is fixed (had to build a new blog for that to happen) and my August IWSG post seems to be popular, I'm visiting as many blogs as I can, offering support and hoping for some blog love in return. LOL

    IWSG #179 (At least until Alex culls the list again. :P)
