IWSG Wednesday


The first Wednesday of every month is officially IWSG day. Members post about their doubts and fears, discuss struggles and triumphs, and offer words of encouragement to others who are struggling.

Thanks, as always, to Alex Cavanaugh, founder and Ninja Captain extraordinaire and our awesome co-hosts.

The IWSG optional monthly question can be found under the IWSG Sign-up tab on the Insecure Writer's Support Group Blog.

Book Reads

Last month I had the pleasure of a sneak peak at Beverly Stowe McClure's GABE'S GUARDIAN ANGEL. I don't want to give anything away since it's not yet released, though it is available for preorder at Amazon. Just let me say, you are in for a reading treat. 



And for another holiday pleasure stop by tomorrow for information on J.Q. Rose's new release, YOUR  LIFE STORY.  You're going to love it. It will make a purrfect gift for those on your Christmas list who are hard to buy for.


Read last month: Indie author Joe Congel's DEADLY PASSION .   This one's for the gumshoe aficionados out there. A great read, with a chilling twist.


Currently reading: Good bud and Queen of Prehistorics, Jacqui Murray's: BORN IN A TREACHEROUS TIME. If you like Xhosa, I recommend that you give Lucy a spin.

There is some grammar thing that quite uninvited comes up in my Twitter feed. Yesterday it had a list of common verbs with more interesting alternatives, which did make me think about the way I write, briefly. But I am a bit of a churn it out blog writer.

Valerie-Jael said...

I love that you authors support each other well, that's great. Strong verbs, huh? Good one! Have a great day, hugs, Valerie

More booky temptation? Thank you and drat you.
I do love me some strong words. And occasionally strong drink.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Oh so tempting. You are SO supportive of other writers. I am in awe. Some of those books sound interesting. Thanks for the brief reviews.

LOVE HURL. Reminds me of what people do on New Year's Day!!!

Pat Hatt said...

Sure shows you can't just run away. Looks like some winners got read this past month too.

I'm so pleased you enjoyed Beverly's book.

Jeanie said...

The strong verb rocks and thanks for reminding us of that. I can be so easy to fall into the routine. And bravo for your support of other writers. You really are the best!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Whirl - love that one. Will need to work that into something.

Elizabeth Varadan, Author said...

Great verbs, all. I like hurtle and lunge (maybe because I've been writing a mystery, Lol.) Likewise, the books, Deadly Passion sounds intriguing. (I love mysteries -- both cozies and thrillers. Your posts are always so interesting!

Settling in to read by the fire sounds wondrous. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

Sandra Cox said...

Thank you, Elizabeth:)
Hurtle and lunge are excellent verbs:)
Deadly Passion is intriguing. I was thrilled to find that the author is a North Carolinian.

Sandra Cox said...

Entirely me pleasure:)

Sonya said...

Ah, I do like visually descriptive action verbs. 😁 I gotta get to writin'!

Juneta key said...

Enjoyed reading the spotlights. Happy Belated IWSG! And Happy Holidays.

Andrew said...

I wouldn't have a clue how to do that, well ok, perhaps. I think it something called grammarly. I expect you know the verb alternatives anyway.

Magic Love Crow said...

Lots of wonderful books! Love those verbs! LOL! Big Hugs!
