#IWSG Day & #VPK2 Set

Wednesday, February 1, 2017

Can you believe we've hit February already? Today is another IWSG post day when all of us share our insecurities or offer encouragement to those in need of it. This month, Captain Alex is being ably assisted by these trusty helpers: Misha Gericke, LK Hill, Juneta Key, Christy and Joylene Butler!

A couple of things. The IWSG is now offering merchandise, so be sure to visit the Merchandise Page and check it out.


The winners of last fall anthology have started a group blog to tell the world about their upcoming book. Visit Hero Lost: Mysteries of Death and Life and see what the group is sharing. 

We have a couple of new administrators for the IWSG, who you probably know. Please welcome C. Lee McKenzie and Heather M. Gardner.

This month, I'm not feeling insecure because along with seven (7) other authors we released a Valentine boxed set in which each story features a pet. The set did very well yesterday and underscores the value of group promotion. As the song says, No man is an island, no man stands alone. So happy to be a part of that experience.

Here's hoping you aren't feeling insecure about your writing today, but if you are, don't give in because everything worth anything takes time to achieve and there's no time limit on success.

Please check out our boxed set. It's a great price at $0.99. http://books2read.com/vpk2

  2. Fantastic idea for an anthology--just bought it! Eager to see which pet you wrote about. After my cat died at almost 17 years old, I haven't gotten a new pet but I do love my doggie nephew.

  9. Hi, J.L. Congratulations on your Valentine box set. Somewhere on my IWSG rambles today, a member had a link to trends in publishing, and the article discussed group book sets and group marketing, also writing that was tied into the calendar in some way, like your Valentine collection. So you're right out there riding the wave of a current trend. All the best with your collection.
