The Insecure Writer's Support Group: July 2015

It's the first Wednesday of the month!  That means it's time for another meeting of the Insecure Writer's Support Group.  Our esteemed host Alex J. Cavanaugh has enlisted the help of a few good minions: Charity Bradford, S.A. Larsen, AJ, Tamara Narayan, Allison Gammons, and Tanya Miranda.

There's an IWSG shirt now!  Isn't that amazing?  You can find it HERE.

My insecurity this month is easy to pinpoint.  Monday, July 6th is the release day for my novella A Silent Soliloquy.  (That's also my husband's birthday, but I'm not insecure about that side of things.)  To say that I'm nervous about my book release would be a serious understatement.  The book is ready to go.  My blog tour posts are completed.  All I can do is sit back and wait to see how things play out from here.

I've tried to focus on my other writing projects to keep my mind occupied, but it isn't working.

I wonder how my fellow authors handle release day.  It's intense stuff.

Luckily, the upcoming Independence Day weekend should keep me occupied.  Maybe that will help me take my mind off my nerves for a little while.

What are you feeling insecure about this month?


  1. Good luck with your release. I always find them exciting but nerve wracking. I usually have to distract myself so I don't spend all day looking at sales ranking.

  2. Just take a deep breath! It will be all right. Just remember to enjoy the day when it hits.

  3. I release my novel in August and I'm already a bundle of nerves, I can only imagine the crazy just a few days before. Good luck!

  4. Good luck, and have fun celebrating the release, your husband's birthday, and the 4th of July. All in all, enjoy your weekend.

  5. I'll be thinking of you on Monday. I'm feeling insecure about my music group's performance at a ukulele festival tomorrow. Gulp.

  6. Congrats on the upcoming book release!!! I'm be sending positive vibes your way on Monday, trying to wrap you in warm, comfy love from afar.
