It's the first Wednesday of the month. Time for Alex J. Cavanaugh's Insecure Writer's Support Group. A place where we brave through sharing what we're insecure about and support one another. JOIN HERE!
The awesome co-hosts for the July 3 posting of the IWSG are Nicki Elson, Juneta Key, Tamara Narayan, and Patricia Lynne!
I wasn't aware we were posting on Tuesday this month. My bad. Happy 4th of July, everyone!
The first book of my Brittany Wolfe series released yesterday! This segues nicely into my writing goals. I've heard from multiple fabulous writers who I support, "To build an audience you need an anchor series." I tried with my Rebecca Ashley series, and I got stuck during the build.
Now that I've jumped to another rail and begun building with my new niche of pop-culture noir mystery I've got my momentum back. In part due to the bootcamp of grad school, and partly due to my amazing publisher who clearly saw my vision, understood my voice, and pulled it from the void into reality.
Now I'm only worried of keeping up the pace through the emotional rollercoaster ride that is my writing process.
Creating an "anchor series" is my main writing goal. What's yours?
