Tidewater ComiCon 2016 Recap

So, I had a great time at my local Con this weekend. I kinda needed a day to recover, but I still went to my day job yesterday. There were many high points of the weekend including seeing Ernie Hudson and Sam Jones up-close (sorry no pictures).

I did pretty good with my Eternal Curse sales and even managed to move a few of my short stories. But the coolest thing was making a woman’s day, who wasn’t really in to the event, when I showed her my romantic comedy. I still can’t believe I sold a RomCom at a ComiCon. 😉

I’m sooo looking forward to next year.

#IWSG May 2016: Con Season


Created and hosted by the Ninja himself, Alex J. Cavanaugh, the Insecure Writers Support Group posts the 1st Wednesday of every month. Click the image to learn more or sign up.


I’m currently insecure about my future, but I’m trying not to dwell on it. I’ve decided not to focus on trying to publish anything right now, but instead just work on my writing. We’ll see how long that lasts.

The month of April was pretty busy for me and even though I couldn’t stay on top of everything I wanted to, I didn’t let myself become overwhelmed. With one convention down (RavenCon) and one on the way (Tidewater Comicon), I’m pretty busy with preparations. As summer vacation draws nearer for me, I’m thinking about all the things I want to work on, including slightly increasing my blog activity. I let my posts slip a bit for the sake of other pursuits, but I think the summer will be a good time to regroup, refocus, and have a start fresh.

I miss being involved in virtual blog tours and think I will start that up again. It really is a good way to add to my TBR list and help support other authors. I’ll also be making strides to conduct more author interviews on my Tumblr and even reblog them here. And since I’ve long neglected my #BooktagsBloghop, I think I’ll try to get that back up and running. It’s not like I haven’t been reading books, I just haven’t been blogging about them.

Lastly, since I’m dedicated to this hop every month, I think I’ll start using it for personal and wip/writing updates when applicable. I feel like I need to share more about my creative process without being overbearing. So, that’s it. That’s all I have for this month.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Mother’s Day!


What are you insecure about?
Any words of encouragement?
