The Insecure Writer's Support Group

It’s time for another edition of The Insecure Writer’s Support Group, founded by Ninja Captain, Alex J. Cavanaugh.

November 3 question - What's harder to do, coming up with your book title or writing the blurb?

Titles have never been a problem for me. Blurbs aren’t much more difficult as coming up with back cover synopsis is what I do as a publisher. It’s all about reworking the basic blurb to really highlight the key elements that would draw in a reader.

The IWSG needs an admin to take over the Instagram account. If you are interested in becoming part of the team, sent an email to the IWSG.

We are heading into the Christmas season. A friend recently posted on Facebook - buy local, buy small business, support a self-employed friend.

I could give everyone a big discount – a free book! – and I would get few takers.

So, this year I will just appeal to your humanity. Look at the titles we represent. Look at the authors, struggling with so few live events these past few years. Your purchase makes such a huge difference to them and to us. DLP needs help. Thanks to my amazing husband, who not only brings home the bacon but does ALL of the graphics for DLP, we continue to survive. But that is the key word – survive.

You are a close knit group. I entice you to support one another. Buy direct. Buy local and small business. And help us get through this incredibly tough (worse than 2020) year.
