Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. On this day we post about our thoughts, our doubts, and the fears we have conquered. We discuss our struggles and triumphs, and offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling.
Every post opens with a question (a blogging prompt, if you will), and this month's is: Have you taken advantage of the annual A to Z Challenge in terms of marketing, networking, publicity for your book? What were the results?
As it so happens, I was actually thinking about taking part in the challenge this year, but circumstances (and my penchant for procrastination) conspired against me. I love the idea, and I have some thoughts on a theme, but it will have to wait for next year.
Otherwise, since this is my inaugural IWSG post, I guess I should update you on my writing progress. My transgender horror novel is still out there awaiting judgement from one last agent, but I have already decided to rework it, bring the paranormal romance element more the forefront, and do something rather daring with the main character. It means one last rewrite, but I am excited about where this takes it, and I have 2 publishers in mind that I think will do it justice.
In the meantime, I am working on the first of what I hope will be a series of pulp erotica adventures. I am about 2,500 words into it so far, and I feel good about it. I just want to let loose and have fun, so I am looking at self-publishing for these stories. My goal is to have the first done before the next IWSG rolls around, so please hold me to that! :)
