IWSG August 2022 and a Massive Book Sale


Purpose: To share and encourage. 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!

Posting: The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. Visit others in the group and connect with your fellow writer – aim for a dozen new people each time – and return comments.

Optional Question for the month:

When you set out to write a story, do you try to be more original, or do you try to give readers what they want?

I hope to do be both original and give readers something they want. However, I have often erred on the side of original, which can be a tough sell.

I have been writing a long, long time and I love to write original ideas, but I would also love to get “read” by readers. 

As a ponder this quandary this month, I have some stuff going on behind the scenes. 

Plus, I have a birthday this month, and to celebrate, most of my eBooks are on sale at Amazon for 99 cents. If you’ve ever been curious about reading my books, but haven’t yet, now is a good time to plunk down less than a dollar for one. 


These titles are all only 99 cents for Ebook for the month of August:

Liftoff into adventure with Amaya when her movie theater turns out to be a spaceship in disguise!

Liftoff for 99 cents!

Champion in the Darkness, my first publication with a new cover, at only 99 cents!
Faith matters in this fantasy world – Christian Fantasy YA Adventure.

Champion in the Darkness for only 99 cents!

Flicker is a collection of short stories and poetry. It’s on sale for only 99 cents at Amazon.

And there are more books for sale because nearly everything I could put on sale for Ebook, I did.

Hope you are having a good August! Write on!

  1. There’s so much out there that tells us to write what readers want to read. I for one a. All for originality. I rarely ever read what’s popular. I’d rather come across good writing on my own and discover an author who is different with a unique voice. But, yes, as an author I definitely want to be read but I have to be true to the stories in me. A delicate balance ☺️
