C. Lee McKenzie is taking it off!

Her hat, that is. :)

Lee graciously offered to feature Precious Atonement on her 'Hats Off Corner' today. I hope you'll pay her a visit.

ETA: Lee and I seem to be experiencing some technical difficulties.
I worked last night, so I'll sort it out after I've had a nap. ;)


...I'm back.

Lee and I got our dates crossed. I'll be visiting on her blog in September. But you can still click through and enjoy reading about today's guest, Barry Lyga. :)

Truth or Lie & Encouraging Thunder

Several months ago (we won't say how many), Eva Solar gave me the Encouraging Thunder award. I'm flattered, but I think Eva's the one who encourages thunder and everyone around her.

I'd seen Eva around the blogosphere, but I got to know her when she joined a private goal group I'm a part of. Let me tell you, this woman is an inspiration. She's been through hell and back and yet, somehow, manages to maintain a positive outlook and a vivacious, supportive personality. Our group and the blogospere at large wouldn't be the same without Eva.

I have the option to name names and pass on the award, but so many people have encouraged me over the years, I wouldn't know where to begin listing them all. So I'll thank Eva and you, too, if you're one of those people, and if you're a regular part of my online life, you are. :)

I cloned myself today. I'm over at Crystal Collier's blog, telling two truths and doing a smidgen of fibbing. If you guess the lie, you have a chance to win a signed copy of Precious Atonement. Hope to see you there. :)

I'm a guest of The Ninja Captain!

I'm guest posting over at Alex J. Cavanaugh's blog today. I'd love it if you'd pay him a visit. (As if most of you aren't already. LOL) Leave a comment by midnight on Friday, August 14th, and if your guess is right, you'll be entered int a drawing to win a copy of my new book.

Oh, and in case any of you missed it, Chemist Ken had some fun this month with his IWSG post. For the record, the reason I post my Linky list number with my IWSG comments is so people can find me if they want to return the visit. Ken, however, took it to a whole 'nother level. Enjoy! :D

Thanks for visiting. :)

IWSG August - Ramblings of a self-published author

This is my Insecure Writers Support Group post for August.

Alex's awesome co-hosts this month are: 
Nancy Gideon, Bob R Milne,  
Doreen McGettigan, Chrys Fey,  
Bish Denham, and Pat Garcia!

Please stop by their blogs and say thank you

I'm insecure about a lot of things... the state of our nation... radical changes at my 'real' job... the fact I just celebrated the last birthday of my 40s, but I'm not insecure about my writing. Well, not as much as I was, anyway.
