The Insecure Writer's Support Group is the brainchild of Alex J. Cavanaugh. He, his clones, minions, friends, and fellow authors make it an amazing event every month.




Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!


April 1 question - The IWSG’s focus is on our writers. Each month, from all over the globe, we are a united group sharing our insecurities, our troubles, and our pain. So, in this time when our world is in crisis with the covid-19 pandemic, our optional question this month is: how are things in your world?

It's a weird time in the world and I hope all of our IWSG members are well.

We're doing well here in Northern Ontario. We've all been self-isolating since early March, only running out for essentials. It's busier in our house as we're on childcare duty for the family members working from home. We're having lots of fun and the snow is melting!!

It's a terrible time for a book release, but with dates for preorders set up well in advance, there's nothing else to be done but do it.

Sending good vibes out into our IWSG network and hoping everyone stays safe!

  3. You already know how thrilled I am for you and how much I enjoyed this book! Diane is so correct. People who are dealing with dementia in their families will need this book no matter what is going on in the world.

    1. I hope so, Sheri! I can't imagine how difficult it is for some of the people with their LOs in their homes right now, cut off from so many supports!

  4. Me too, I'm thrilled to help showcase your new book. I think its subject matter is particularly crucial. Dementia, sadly, touches so many lives. Stay safe, Jemi.

  8. Children are a blessing at a time like this. How can anyone think of much with young feet pitter-pattering. :-)

  13. Congrats on the new release, Jemi! It is such an important topic, especially in these difficult times. Yes, we are in a pandemic, but people are still dealing with their everyday challenges and need information on more than just the latest count of Covid cases. Best to you on your book tour!
