At Long Last! Blog Tour Finale at Elise Fallsons' + IWSG

(For the most up-to-date Author Events, go to my webpage: Events & Media)


Whoopee! This is it! I’m so excited that this blog tour went amazingly. All of you guys who hosted, commented and entered just blow me away! Thanks so much for your support.

On this last day of the blog tour, go on over to Elise Fallson, a most wonderful American chick who lives in France and is working on two manuscripts. Isn’t that just crazy! I can’t even be into reading more than one book at a time, yet she's writing a YA and an NA book! Phew!! 

Today’s and the final host:  Elise Fallson

Insecure Writer's Support Group


At the same time as the last day of my blog tour, that is, the 1st Wednesday of the month, is the Insecure Writer’s Support Group, an ingenious creation of Alex J. Cavanaugh.

I have to say that overshadowing any insecurities I might have is my excitement of all that’s been going on: The tour; I’ve been writing on my WIP; I’ve reread my first book, and am still in love with it; I’m doing more interviews; and I’m reading Julie Flander’s book, Polar Nights, and I’m looking forward to finishing and reviewing it.

The insecurities that are being overshadowed are: Will all the money I’m shelling out to this publicist be worth it in the end? Will I ever make more than I’m spending, or at least ever break even, with my books? Will I be able to finish my WIP with the resolutions and ending that I don’t yet know, but am craving? Will I ever get a husband? (Ooops, that slipped out. Wrong support group!)

Well fellow writers, I look forward to your support and providing what support I can to you!

  1. Sounds like you're too busy to have much room for doubt ;) Got get them, girl! I had to laugh at the husband thing. My little bro (whose pushing 30 hard, not THAT old)just got engaged a couple days ago, and he'd written himself off.

    1. Although I did dance at church, I forgot to do my *happy dance* for celebrating. I guess I've got to do it tomorrow, in public, in front of other people... Oh well, should be fun!

  12. Hey Nancy,

    First of all, can I please have bonus points for commenting at nearly four in the morning. Time zones!

    I noted your tour over at Elise's lovely site. And indeed, I left a comment. Oh my, lingo time :) Have fun with your "WIP" :)

    I also wish to thank you for your participation in the "I Was Seeking Gary group. Ignore me. Must be the time zones! :)

    Be well, my friend.

    1. And what were you doing up at 4 am? Bonus pts? hmm... It might be possible. :)

      I noticed your comments at Elise's, and still am unsure what you're saying. Time zone issues? Who knows? Sleep well. :)

  17. Congrats on a SUCCESSFUL TOUR! I am so glad it was a good experience for you Nancy.

    Just take a breather... It's natural to have all your insecurities about your books and finances. But as I my topic for the IWSG was "A leap of faith," you have done the same. Without our drive and determination to face our insecurities and fears we would all live very meaningless lives.

    Keep focused and positive and you'll get where you wish to go!

    1. It was a great experience Michael! And you are so right. I've got to take a breather and accept where I'm at while believing in the future.

  18. You may not see results right away. My first book didn't take off until eleven months after its release. Just believe everything you've invested will pay off somewhere. God knows your heart and he will reward your efforts.

  21. My oh my, Ms. Nancy, you've got a lot going on. I feel so out of the loop about your blog tour. I've been limiting my online activity lately so I haven't been a regular visitor to the blogs I follow. Sorry for being a Johnny-come-lately. I'm totally supportive of all you do and I'm impressed by your hard work and dedication to your craft.

    CONGRATULATIONS and I wish you extreme success for Salted with Fire (still loving that title) and all your other endeavors.
