December 19th will be big for AuthorU members and AuthorU … it’s AuthorU and Colorado Authors Hall of Fame Day at the Colorado Blvd. Barnes & Noble.
Author signings all day … all customers who use the special coupon created by B&N and distributed to ANYONE who comes into the store on December 19th, selects books AND then gives to the cashier at check-out will create a donation back to the Authors Hall of Fame gratis B&N … how very cool is that! Watch for more info and sign-ups to participate. Support your author friends who are signing and SHOP in the store. We will get credit for any books as long as a coupon is given to the cashier.
At least, that’s what the Author You Community is declaring. We will show you how to create an event that venues will welcome and buzz about and probe into the book award world.
Our Author and Publishing First Saturday will cover two key areas:
1. Book Awards– what to know; which ones to go for; when to pay; what to do when you are a winner.
2. Creating non-bookstore events– get ready for ideas galore—from galleries to restaurants to retail stores … yup, even Costco and Sams.
You want to be there— for newbie authors and multi-published ones. It’s a celebration if you and your words. And what to do forward.
Your Presenters are Mara Purl and Judith Briles. Between the two of them, they’ve earned over 50 book awards, published over 45 books, sold over 1,000,000 copies and have created countless celebrations. Get ready for ideas and fun!
