Good Authoring Day to YOU

… And Happy Saturday to you!

Today … is my planning the garden day.  New boxes made. Great soil added. Now … it’s seed time. A perfect way to spend Easter weekend in my neck of the woods.

I’ve been busy creating book one-sheets for my four new books. Ideal to send out with reviews—each contains all the details—ISBNs, pricing, descriptions, book cover for each of them. I’ll add to the websites for support and link over to where to buy with a click.

Regret that many of you missed the AuthorYOU Extravaganza last weekend. It’s the last one that coordinates. And, expect to see many, actually LOTS, of changes on the new website and other developments before summer unfolds.

It’s Caturday … Many families are gathering—to play, laugh, and watch together … could it be the first day of a new life that is ready to burst out and come forth? Will it be a day for adding new ideas and a twist to old ones? I’m seeing it as a perfect weekend to do a cleanup on some dangling projects, including a few with Amazon. How about you?

That’s me … how about you … what are you up to?

Friday mornings are the place to be with other authors! I love the Friday coaching that happens early each Friday AM. I always have a “new tip” for the group that I lead with—a “show and tell how to do ‘it’ … whatever ‘it’ is, then it opens up to “catch up” and “asks”.
