My awesome co-hosts today are Nancy Gideon, Bob R Milne, Doreen McGettigan, Chrys Fey, Bish Denham, and Pat Garcia!
My Fellowship of the Dragon group knows I’ve been working on this, but I don’t think I’ve talked much about it here. I’m working on a short story that takes place after Dragon of the Stars.
It’s already been through a critique partner (Heather, you rock!) and I’m working on polishing it to perfection.
I hope to have it done by the end of next week and I have someone who will format it for me. Then it will be free to anyone who has read Dragon of the Stars and wants to know what happens next. (And those who want a little happier ending.)
When it’s available, I’ll let you know! First, I have to come up with a name for it. I guess that's my insecurity right now, as I have no idea what to call it...
Don’t forget that the Insecure Writer’s Support Group has its own t-shirt! Designed by the very talented Jeremy Hawkins, it’s available at the NeatOShop.
We also have a IWSG group on Facebook, so check it out and join today.
