The Author Gems of the Night
What an evening the 2021 Authors’ Hall of Fame Induction Gala was. The visual glitz of being “dressed up” was beyond fun. The location worked. The schmoozing and reconnecting were the best. The positive energy that vibrated within the ballroom was beyond words. And the Authors … what an array of talent to behold. And all doing what they loved to do … write for their readers.
Mark Camacho of 81 International Media took out his magic wand and created videos of the 16 Inductees plus one on Sue Lubeck, the Bookies Bookstore founder and Lifetime Achievement recipient. Richard Rieman added his wonderful voice in narration. Each video is approximately 90 seconds—a 90 second dessert you don’t want to miss.
Why watch them? Why read their bios?
It’s about inspiration.
It’s about celebration.
It’s about discovering new voices and faces.
Ones that you may not have known, yet. They will open a world that you will delight in.
My blog and Call to Action for you this week is to read all this year’s Authors’ Hall of Fame Inductee bios; to watch each short video of their impact and accomplishments. And ask: What can I learn from these amazing men and women?
Read and watch HERE.
In your hands are oodles of gems. Relish and enjoy them.
