IWSG – Positive Feedback and Question of the Month

Today’s the day for the Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG) where, on the first Wednesday of every month, writers get together to share their insecurities and offer encouragement. The IWSG was created by Alex J. Cavanaugh, and you can learn all about it and sign up for it here

I’m actually feeling pretty good about my work-in-progress right now, other than the fact that it’s taking way too long to finish it. I ran the first twelve chapters past my writers’ group and got lots of positive feedback. They said they were sucked right into the story, so whoo hoo! At least I’m going in the right direction. Now, if I could just get it done….

April 6 question – Have any of your books been made into audio books? If so, what is the main challenge in producing an audiobook?

I have not had any of my books made into audio books yet. I’ve had people ask for them and it’s on my list of things to look into, but I’ve heard that it’s expensive. I’d love to hear about others’ experiences with producing audiobooks. What’s the best way to go about it and how much of an investment did you have to make? Were you happy with the results?

*****

Coming April 5th — Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh’s new release!

*****

His world is unraveling…

Bassan’s father is stepping down from command. His best friend almost dies when Bassan freezes. Now, he’s being sent across the galaxy to speak at an important conference. Despite saving the eleven races years ago, he’s paralyzed by doubt. Could things get any worse?

Once there, new acquaintance Zendar convinces Bassan to visit his planet for a humanitarian mission. Bassan’s special connection to ancient technology is the key to saving Zendar’s people. One problem though—it’s a prisoner planet.

On Ugar, he discovers things aren’t so straightforward. As each truth reveals itself, the situation grows more desperate. If he can’t find the right answers, he might die along with Zendar’s people. Can Bassan summon the courage to be a hero again?
