The Insecure Writer’s Support Group and In Darkness: The Alien’s Release!


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

The question for today: What turns you off when visiting an author's website/blog? Lack of information? A drone of negativity? Little mention of author's books? Constant mention of books?

An author’s website should focus on his/her books and what they are currently doing. However, a blog should not be just about one’s own books. I’d go far as to say not even just about writing those books. (Especially if the author is struggling, because readers do NOT want to hear that.)

I’m a day early because the final chapter of my In Darkness series is out!


In Darkness: The Alien

By L. Diane Wolfe


Souls shrouded in darkness…
Abducted from her research station, Liz’s life is flung into chaos. Sold into servanthood for her knowledge of planetary mining to a race called the Stren, she discovers her problems go far deeper. She is to marry her alien master, Krist, after enduring a procedure designed to eradicate her emotions.
Desperate, Liz persuades the Stren to grant her the duration of a short voyage to change his perception of emotions. But how can she convince someone lacking feelings of their value? Is there a means of accessing the emotional side of Krist?

Congrats on getting the final chapter out there!

Toi Thomas said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm so excited about your release and am happy to post my review of the ARC I read. I've really enjoyed this series. It has been an inspiration to me. I wish you all the best with your tour!

Joylene Nowell Butler said...

Big congratulations on your new book, Diane. I should be on that list. I'm out of sorts, but I'm in your corner cheering.

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

Oh, I am so on that all in one book. It will go on my keeper shelf. I hope you have it at the conference so I can get it signed.

Interesting. I've noticed sites like that but they belong to King, Evonovich, Patterson, and JD Robb. I only visit them to see what order to read one of their series and not much more.

Congrats on your release!

Diane, I'm not a big fan of meaningless clutter. Pop ups and ads frustrate me as well. Congrats on the release. I think my daughter might dive into In Darkness. She is an avid reader and likes werewolves and vampires. I sat through all of Twilight with her, begrudgingly, but ended up not minding it too much. Hope all is well.

Olga Godim said...

Congratulations on your new release.
Love the cover of you upcoming omnibus. Structurally, those triangles look much better than the usual for such collections stacked rectangles, either horizontal or vertical.

Carol Kilgore said...

Very cool! Congratulations.

Karen Jones Gowen said...

This is great, Diane, congratulations! I would read it for sure. I enjoy a good sci fi novel.

Gwen Gardner said...

Congrats on your next in series book release! Your explanation of website vs blog content makes so much sense. These days my blog consists of IWSG posts, and my website is about my books on offer and upcoming books.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Toi, thank you so very much.

Thanks, everybody.

Annalisa Crawford said...

Congratulations on your latest book!

Kristina Kelly said...

I do like reading about author's struggles, but if it's every post it can quickly get the ick factor; tell me about what inspired a previous idea, something.

Melissa said...

Congratulations! I enjoyed this story.

Loni Townsend said...

(Especially if the author is struggling, because readers do NOT want to hear that.) - Whoops.

Grats on the releases!

Congratulation on the release!

J.Q. Rose said...

Congratulations! You go grrl!!

Steven Arellano Rose Jr. said...

I think an author's blog that contains variation about his/her and other people's work makes for a good open-minded blog. It makes readers want to keep coming back because there's always something different.

It was a pleasure interviewing you, Diane! Thanks again

Fundy Blue said...

I'm way behind, Diane. But I'm so glad that I visited, because I learned that your series is being released in print. I'll be able to get it when I go home! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Tonja Drecker said...

Huge congratulations! Off to purchase a copy now :)

Sherry Ellis said...

Congratulations on your new release! It's in my Kindle waiting to be read. Very cool to put your entire series into one book. Nice cover for it!
