#IWSG - JULY - Book sale and Anthology Contest!!

It’s time for another group posting of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group! Time to release our fears to the world – or offer encouragement to those who are feeling neurotic.

The awesome co-hosts today are Jenni Enzor, Beth Camp, Liesbet, Tyrean Martinson, and Sandra Cox!

July 1 optional question - There have been many industry changes in the last decade, so what are some changes you would like to see happen in the next decade?

Well, howdee-howdoo!
Happy July 1st, for those of you who stopped looking at the calendar.
I hope you're all staying safe.
I hope you're reading.
I hope you're writing.
I hope you're taking good care of yourselves as you also take care of others.
I hope you're fighting the good fight.
I hope you're indulging in chocolate.

  1. Not writing but I have been reading. Got to do something - no movies to go see!

  2. Great to see your books are on sale . . . and that you are feeling positive as this pandemic plods along. Be well and keep writing!

  3. I don't do chocolate but I have been indulging in other things.

  4. I haven't been doing much writing lately, but I haven been working on other things. And definitely indulging in chocolate. Perhaps even overindulging (if such a thing exists...)

    Hope your sale goes well!

  5. I'm finally getting back into writing after not being able to most of June due to my health (not Corona related.) It's nice to be back at it.

  6. Hi Heather - I've been keeping under the radar ... good luck with the Smashwords sale - and well done on promoting the anthology ... all the best Hilary
