ISWG: Is it still snowing in the Northeast :)


It’s Insecure Writers' Support Group time!

As always, a huge thanks to Alex J. Cavanaugh, founder of IWSG and someone who amazingly, after three books and a fourth coming out next month, still has time to think, let alone be insecure :)

It's March 3, which means it's exactly two weeks until St. Patrick's Day, my favorite day.

(Some may not know, but I was born and reared in Dublin, but Paddy's Days (it's *NEVER* "St. Patty's Day :) were useless when I was growing up.)

So, how can I be insecure about everyone wanting to be Irish for a day?

Well, little leprechauns who want to mess with me lucky charms and large people who want to pinch me when I'm wearing a green body suit can be quite traumatizing....

(Or, hmm, is it the visual of a grown, bald man in a green body suit that's quite traumatizing?)


Anyway, I think I'll be okay, unless you're planning to kiss the Blarney Stone before March 17 - Don't do it...

 See, not only are authors Carrie Butler and E.J. Wesley of NA Alley (the information hub for New Adult Fiction) busy with their writing careers, they also produce a themed monthly Podcast called Alleycast.
With this in mind, they decided to find a charming, articulate and photogenic Irishman to be their St. Patrick's Day guest.

When they couldn't find one, they called me.

The hour-long interview was a lot of fun, and it's scheduled to go live on St. Patrick's Day.

Carrie, E.J and me* post podcast                                    (*Not the actual people.)

Highlights include how I got my first writing gig and became a newspaper journalist (with no degree nor experience) It's the Irish charm, I'm telling ye!)

Oh, and then... there's a big reveal on the podcast, too :)

And *that's* the main reason I'm insecure this month:)

How will the news be taken? (Will the news be returned by a passerby who finds it huddling in a ditch?)

Plus, we're moving to Virginia in less than three weeks...

(No wonder I'm looking forward to Paddy's Day... someone save me an adult beverage!)

PS: With the upcoming move, Carrie, who also owns Forward Authority Design Services, is slowly redesiging my blog. There will always be aloha in my words, but the new location calls for a new title...

Have a great writing week, and I look forward to sharing the big reveal with you on St. Paddy's Day!

Lord Baldernot will return :)
