Who Me Insecure? I'm a RAPper!

Today I'm supposed to share my Insecure Writer Self, but I'm just not Insecure any more, you see. I've faced my Insecurities, they've backed down and I've moved on to a solid footing . . . a very Secure writer with a plan and goals and all of that kind of thing.

Who turned out the light?



Still, one can't let a few nervous twitches stop them from moving forward. So . . . Next Monday I'll be posting my second in the series on self-publishing. The first was called The Whole Enchilada if you'd like to read it. The second is going to be titled Beating the Bushes for Those Professionals. I'm sure, pretty sure, sort of confident, a little confident that you'll find the post helpful . . . maybe.


Also I've joined the Random Acts of Publicity and have no fear of putting myself out there where the readers and reviewers lurk  await me with great anticipation.  However today isn't about me or my book --no it's about other people's books that are making their way into the world. 








Here are three. Hope you take a look and buy their books.


Mike Jung's Debut 
Another enchanting book to explore.





Don't you love this cover?

  7. Having something published helps a bit I would imagine. And it never hurts to help give others a boost with their efforts. Good for you!

  9. Putting yourself out there takes a lot of gumption and stick-to-it-iveness to get things done. Thanks for the links. Need to put up the RAP badge.

    Self publishing is an adventure, but so is publishing any way.
