My awesome co-hosts today are Julie Luek, Rachna Chabria, Beverly Fox, and Ilima Todd! Please be sure to thank them for their time and effort to make all IWSG members feel welcome.
And today I am pleased to announce that the Insecure Writer’s Support Group website is now open!!!
Many thanks to the IWSG Admins who helped put it together - Joy Campbell, Michelle Wallace, Joylene Nowell Butler Susan Gourley/Kelley, L. Diane Wolfe, and Lynda Young.
It is still a work in progress and we will continue to add to it over time. You will find pages full of links to great sites and databases under the following subjects – Writing Tips; Publishers, Agents, Queries; Self-Publishing; Marketing; Contests; and Publications.
We also have a page where you can leave suggestions for sites to add to the database. Note we are looking for sites, not individual posts!
The IWSG List is also up on the site HERE.
The first Wednesday will be an encouraging word from the team, and every Monday will be a post from one of the admins about writing, designed to encourage and give you some valuable information or resources.
We also have a Facebook page HERE.
Eventually, we’d like to open it up for guest posts on Wednesday, and expand to include Twitter and possibly a newsletter. (The Twitter hashtag is still #IWSG.)
We invite you to follow and explore the new site. And let us know what we can do to make it a great resource for writers.
Thanks everyone for your dedication to the IWSG and making this site a reality!
Be sure to visit other members on the LIST.
Christine Monson had a wonderful review of CassaStorm on Monday. Her favorite character was Bassan. I’m sensing a trend here…

In addition to her book, Mary’s story, Semper Audacia, is part of the Space Jockey anthology. It was recently released and there are 14 stories, including classics from Philip K. Dick and Algis Budrys.
Congratulations on both accounts, Mary! That is awesome.
