My two awesome co-hosts this month are Misha Gericke and Joylene Nowell Butler! Please be sure to thank them for their time and effort to make all IWSG members feel welcome.
This month I have an odd writing insecurity.
In a recent post by Roland Yeomans, he wondered if blogging was becoming less effective with so many cover reveals, book announcements, etc. (I admit, there does seem to be a lot of them lately.) But I started thinking and I realized I really don’t write much for my own blog anymore.
Now, I enjoy shouting out my blogger buddies’ accomplishments! That won’t ever change. The Ninja News is never going away. I enjoy keeping up with the blogging world. But I would like to write something here now and then. I haven’t even done a movie review in months. (Which is why you are getting two today!)
If I shrink some of the announcements down a bit, would that be all right? I’ll still post, just… shorter.
Be sure to visit other participants of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group!
And, since I do cull the list now and then, make sure you are still on the list if you are posting now.
The Happy Whisk is hosting a giveaway for hitting 444 posts! Some awesome books (including one of mine) so check it out.
I can’t remember how I found this site - Christian Fiction for Your Kindle. It lists both fiction and non-fiction Christian books that are on sale or free that day.
FRAILTIES OF THE BOND by Angela Brown
In Frailties of the Bond, it only takes one bite to change a life…
FRAILTIES OF THE BOND is the first in a series of novellas and short stories introducing heroes and heroines of the secret organization, NEO – Network of Extraordinaires and Otherwordlies.

Yes, it’s a retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk.
And you know what? It was fun.
Some of the reviewers have been harsh, but I didn’t find anything wrong with the movie. It’s not the most memorable thing you’ll ever see, but it’s not cheesy or bad.
The special effects and acting were all great. (Saw it in 3D,) Story even had a few unexpected twists and some good laughs.
Go and enjoy!
It’s a thriller involving a Manhattan bicycle delivery guy. How thrilling could it really be?
Turns out, it was really damn good! Toss in a crooked cop, a roommate with a secret, and competition among the bikers and it’s a heck of a ride. Joseph Gordon-Levitt is the lead, and he takes you on a wild chase through the city – all without brakes!
Definitely recommend it!
House of Cards
For those of you with NetFlix, have you been watching their original series, House of Cards? It’s political drama with one heck of a cast, including Kevin Spacey. The show takes no sides – everyone is motivated by money and re-election without a care about the country. (Slimy politicians? Really?)
It’s a watch now and highly recommended!
Wednesday Movie Quote!
Today it’s cell animation. (Yeah, need to go back a couple years for that one.)
I selected an exchange from The Emperor’s New Groove:
Kuzco: Don't tell me. We're about to go over a huge waterfall.
Kuzco: Sharp rocks at the bottom?
Pacha: Most likely.
Kuzco: Bring it on.
Next week – computer animation film quote!
What is your insecurity today? Entered Happy Whisk’s contest? Have you seen either of those movies or the NetFlix show? And what’s your favorite cell animation film quote?
And Friday I’m tackling an interesting subject. (And Mini-Alex might make an appearance…)
