IWSG - Wanna help?

I actually remembered to post on time this month! Today is another installation of The Insecure Writer's Support Group, which posts on the first Wednesday of every month and is run by our Ninja Captain Alex Cavanaugh. This is a place where 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. Seriously, without you guys I would probably be stuffing my face with ice cream and listening to "Everybody Hurts" by REM. But we have each other!!

I love all of you and I appreciate everyone who has supported me over the years! Or, even if you've only supported me for the past 10 seconds - I appreciate it! Because of this amazing writing community, BREATHLESS, my debut novel is less than a month away from being published! I'm joining the indie groupies and publishing it on April 1st. (No, Mom, it's still not an April Fool's joke.)

I'm thrilled and I can't even fully describe how excited I am to be publishing this novella! The main thing I'm insecure about is... will anyone actually read it? I'm sure people will and I can't wait to hear what they think. :) If you want to be my new best friend, I'd love if you'd sign-up for my release day celebration - The Romantic Flop Blog Hop, the place to share your awkward romantic encounters!

To everyone who is still writing that draft or staring at the same page for seventy minutes and only changing the punctuation in one sentence, I've been there and it gets better with every day. Sometimes the road to becoming an author really sucks, but it's worth it. :)

Have a great month everyone! When you check back next month, I'll have a published book! :)
