Insecure Writer’s Support Group! Time to release our fears to the world – or offer encouragement to those who are feeling neurotic. If you’d like to join us, click on the tab above and sign up. We post the first Wednesday of every month. I encourage everyone to visit at least a dozen new blogs and leave a comment. Your words might be the encouragement someone needs.
The awesome co-hosts for the October 1 anniversary posting of the IWSG are Kristin Smith, Elsie, Suzanne Furness,
and Fundy Blue!
IWSG members, Facebook members, and followers to contribute, whether you are a writer on the journey or a published author.
Here are the details:
The purpose of the book is to assist other writers on the journey, so we are looking for tips and instructions. It can be inspirational in nature as long as you provide a solid benefit.
The three topics will be writing, publishing, and marketing. Please let us know what category your submission falls under.
Each contribution needs to be between 200 and 1000 words. Give us your best tip or procedure. The essay can include bullet points, top ten lists, and recommendations. (Websites, software, books, etc.) We’re trying to keep it simple, so no images.
If it’s under 300 words, you can post it for your October 1 IWSG post. Once you have posted, go to this PAGE at the site and submit your link. (With almost three hundred members, we don’t want to miss someone’s submission.)
If over 300 words, please email it directly to the IWSG email or to Alex J. Cavanaugh.
Be sure to include: title, topic (writing, publishing, or marketing), a one line bio (with your name, book(s), and blog), and state that you give us permission to use it.
Please use fresh material – no recycled blog posts. Include a one sentence by-line. Also state that you give us permission to use it in the book and note which topic it falls under. (We will only edit for misspellings and grammar mistakes.) Also no images or hyperlinks.
All submissions need to be sent or posted by October 2, 2014.
To submit, you must be a current IWSG member, IWSG Facebook member, or confirmed follower of the IWSG website. This book needs to represent the group.
We will compile them into an eBook and aim for an early December release. The book will be free and available for all eReaders.
Thank you for making the IWSG such a huge success!!
Happy anniversary, IWSG!

Wow. First I forgot to mention Calibre in my post, so I went back and updated it. Then I realized I forgot to add this book cover. Updated again. Might as well make it 3. What else did I forget in my Countdown to launch? Please tell me so I can stop worrying and enjoy reading the other entries.
Yes, Happy Anniversary
