The Insecure Writer’s Support Group has you Covered

Welcome to the first Insecure Writer’s Group post of the year for me. Somehow January scarpered, and here we are in the first post for February. If you’re thinking of joining the group yourself, let me reassure you that once a month posts really aren’t as difficult as I’m making it look. Come join us! This month the kind co-hosts keeping us all on track are Jacqui Murray, Ronel Janse van Vuuren, Pat Garcia, and Gwen Gardner! Our optional question for this month is…

The Great Blogging Wrap-Up of 2022

Lets get to some numbery-maths for the year. I’m still at the point where I genuinely have a lot of fun breaking my blogging year down in stats. If you’re interested the 2021, 2020, 2019, 2018, and 2017 breakdowns are linked. Just as a note: I’ve spent zero pennies on marketing of any kind since I started this blog in November 2016. Instead, I’ve focused on blog-hops and building relationships. That means super slow growth and also super low stress levels. (If slow is…

The Insecure Writer’s Group and the Holiday Haze

It’s the first Wednesday in December, so you know what that means! A hastily written post full of little substance and much snark to get you through another month. Our co-hosts this month are  Joylene Nowell Butler, Chemist Ken, Natalie Aguirre, Nancy Gideon, and Cathrina Constantine! And we absolutely owe them a thank-you visit and comment for adding this to their already full loads in December. The question for December 7th which I will happily answer is: It’s holiday time! Are the holidays a time…

Autumn Favorites: Pumpkin Spice Horror Edition

AKA my Favorite Fall Weather Reads Yes, I am one of those annoying people who love pumpkin spice and celebrate the season it shows up in everything. I admit this with zero shame, because pumpkin spice is the best. And you know what’s even better? Apples. And caramel. And caramel apples. And butternut squash, pecans, maple, cinnamon, cloves…basically every food item in autumn. I have learned how to make pumpkin spice (it’s super easy) so I can include the flavor…

The Insecure Writer’s Support Group Asks Why I Love Romance

To be fair, no one in the IWSG asked why I love romance. The actual specific question for this month was What do you consider the best characteristics of your favorite genre? But . . . I mean. Come on. We all knew SE was going to answer ‘romance! I freaking adore romance’ and come prepared with an entire listicle of what I consider the best characteristics of romance. With GIFs galore. The co-hosts keeping us on track for October…

So How is Author Life Going, SE?

I’m so glad you asked. (Literally no one has asked). I did promise to make this independent author journey transparent, though. So you are about to get the update you might not have wanted, but will be interested in anyway. Onward! As indie author SE White I released my novella, Beneath Me, in August of 2021. You will be pleased and proud to know that Draft 2 Digital already had to send me two royalty payments. Yep! A whole $3.20…

It’s Release Day! (Again!) The Sidekick and The Supervillain by SE White

Here we are again, my bookworm friends. Yes, the IWSG romance anthology and my own book came out within days of each other. It’s just the way things worked out, timing wise. As of today, you can get your hands on Michaela and Hiro’s story and it’s a good one. It’s someone with a devoted romance background (hi, it me) taking on superhero tropes and adding a happily ever after to the kind of stories which don’t often get their…

It’s the first Wednesday of the month, so it must be time for us Insecure Writers to shine!

It’s like an all-purpose glitter bath for the soul, and you can sign up for it yourself here. Every month some members of the group volunteer to keep us all on track, and keep the conversations going. We owe our thanks to Kim…

Release Day! First Love, the Art of Making Doughnuts

The IWSG anthology is out today, and I’m so excited! Since my story is included, I had the privilege of reading the entire thing as it was getting prepared for publication, and you are in for a treat. In the book you’ll find many great short stories, bringing you back to that sensation of your first love. A cold, controlled woman who just might be thawed by the special care taken to make her doughnuts, a sweet historical, a look…
