Can You Hear What I Hear?
It’s a wonderful time of “togetherness” with family and friends; and, a time of reflection on the past year … and think forward. Next week is, gulp, the beginning of 2014. And I hear AUTHOR SUCCESS!
As you spend time with those you are close to, it’s a natural to noodle a bit. They all know you have a book … or are writing a book. Are they encouragers or stompers? Do they celebrate each step or shake their heads thinking it’s a folly? And how about you … where … exactly are you in the process? During this final week of the year, this is the time to look back and look forward. What worked? What didn’t? And if something, just didn’t work, what are your plans. Scrap it? Morph it? See if it will right itself? What?
SO… your big questions are:
What are you going to do the same; keep doing–yet change a bit; or add new to your authoring/publishing mix?
- What’s worked this year? Why? Are you going to continue to do the same or change it up a bit?
- What’s not worked? Why? Are you going to keep it in the mix? Or change it up a bit?
- What would you like to add? Why?
I would love to have you to make comments… let’s compile a list to share.
All of us within The Book Shepherd team want you to know how much you are appreciated. So many of our authors have won national book awards again this year–we celebrate their amazing journeys and success. I’m looking forward to the Publishing at Sea cruise departing Tampa, FL on January 18th–an amazing intense 5 days at sea (of course there is time for play)–but so much will be happening. The next Judith Briles Unplugged two-day intensive is slated for August 1-2–I loved those who attended the first one–it will only get better. Info is already up here–sign up to get a discount through January 31st.
Don’t forget–you want to be at the Author U Extravaganza slated for May 1-3. The website is www.AuthorU.org. Get signed up.
It has been a pleasure serving and working with all of you this past year. Watch for more changes on the site. We are adding a newsletter that will feature many of the awesome authors I’ve had the pleasure to work with in the creation of their books.
Here’s to a Merry Christmas, Much Love and Prosperity to You for 2014!
To Your Awesome Success and Growth,
Judith Briles, Your Book Shepherd
