IWSG Wednesday


It's IWSG  Wednesday!  Can you believe it's March 1?
The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Members post about their  doubts and fears, discuss struggles and triumphs, and offer words of encouragement to others who are struggling. 


The IWSG March Question: Have you ever pulled out a really old story and reworked it? Did it work? 
It depends on one's definition of really old. Like Steven King's UNDER THE DOME?  If so, yes I pulled one out and no it didn't work out.  

I have been re-releasing books that were published several years ago.
The latest: Boji Stones
 
I love this cover (designed by pixelstudio at Fiverr).  It reminds me of Donna's Gracie at the Gather Blog. 

Marnie  has a secret that could rock the modern world.  Two men have discovered it.  One is a scholar.  One is a madman. 

Available at Amazon.

    Cool that you've going back and re-releasing some books. Almost scary how our writing changes over the years, isn't it?

  8. I love that you are re-releasing books. How cool is that? That is interesting about re-working a book. Thank you for the shoutout and how sweet is your Kitty with a birthday. I had a shorthaired one like that named Tux.

  11. Love this: "Marnie has a secret that could rock the modern world. Two men have discovered it. One is a scholar. One is a madman." I'm already spellbound and I haven't even started reading it!
