    Hi Juneta,
    CONGRATULATIONS on joining the IWSG Admin team. You are a gifted writer and they are lucky to have you. I sincerely hope the “exposure” will bring you new fans and sales.

    I’m apologize for taking weeks to comment on your post. In August, I had a medical scare while traveling in the US (we live in Mexico). I’ll be just fine, but it took me a while to settle down.

      Congratulations on becoming an admin — that is fantastic! And I loved the journal entry – so lyrical, yet revealing. He has a distinct voice — congrats!

    I really liked the poem from the captain. I guess it’s what we’re all doing – venturing into the unknown.

    Lucky number 51! I loved seeing my number creep higher, too. I’m hoping to come back someday soon. 🙂 Congrats on joining the admin, too. That’s awesome. 🙂

    I haven’t re-purposed a character. Yet. But I will bring back some antagonists as soon as their prison time is up. Which should be in about a year.

      It is fun to take a character you know and reimagine in another world.

    Sure a lot going on with the iwsg indeed. Climbing the list shows how far you’ve been there. Funny how characters like to talk, repurposed or not.

    I’ve heard of a few others who took a character from role playing as well. It’s an excellent idea!

    You’ll do great at being an admin at IWSG, well done!

    Firstly, congrats on becoming an IWSG admin! Awesome! 😀

    I check where I am every month on the list… lol. I don’t imagine I’ll get too much higher from where I am now. It’s slowed down a great deal.

    I love the idea of repurposing my Star Wars role-play character for a story. I might do that! 😀

    I love it when my characters have a life of their own.

    I’m happy to help out with the ARC. Not sure how quickly I can get a review up though. Is a couple of weeks ok?

      Sorry, I had a hard time finding your email. Could you email me pretty please? lynfaw at gmail
      Also if that underline was a link to your ARC, then it wasn’t working for me. It could be me. Sometimes technical stuff just fails with me 😉

        If the underline was the words at bottom in green that say 20 ARC copies available through BookSprout, that is the link. I hope it is working for others.

    So glad your onboard the Admin team, Juneta. And I’d help out in the review department, but my Kindle hates PDFs and makes it impossible to read. Since I spend so much time on the computer, my eyes won’t say focused long enough to read online. If you have another way to shoot me a copy, I’ll lend a hand.

      I appreciate that. We have not learned to format yet outside of Amazon, so that is why we don’t have mobi or epub yet to give away. My partner does all the formatting and uploading so far with Amazon. It is on my to-do list which I had planned to learn this week but has not gotten to it yet, but if I do I will shoot you a copy. I want to get us to where we offer the ARC in all three formats. It’s on the to-do now list rather than later, but let myself get distracted last 3 days with other stuff.

      I have the same problem with my eyes. I zoom to 200% when writing, and also zoom out when reading in the browser for that reason, so no worries.

    Hi,
    A huge congratulations and a hug for joining the IWSG Admin staff. I’m proud of you.
    Also, don’t worry about dropping the ball. If you do drop one for a minute or two, people will understand. After all, we’re all human.

    Take care.

    Yeah, my characters often reveal secrets. My dilemma is deciding which of those are germane to the story, not always an easy task. Congrats on becoming an IWSG admin! I wish you happy writing in August.

    The IWSG is so lucky to have you as an admin!

    I don’t leave reviews on Amazon anymore otherwise I would have loved to have read your ARC. (I’ve been banned by them in the past and had my reviews removed so I just stay off there now.) Please let me know if there’s any other way I can help you out with your new release. Always happy to do an author interview on my blog.

    I’ll be curious to hear how AMS ads go for you. I run them. Not very effective for my ebooks, but they do okay for my paperback and large print.

    Cheers – Ellen

      Thank you. I will definitely keep the author interview in mind. Will keep you posted if we do them. We have to hit 20 before we are willing to try yet because we are just starting. Crossing our fingers.

      Thank you. My characters really surprise me all the time, but it is an interesting phenomenon. I think it has to do with brain science, and the fact left communicates in words and right in images and emotion. Very cool though.
