Good Authoring Day to YOU
Happy Caturday to you this Saturday—it’s a good day to toss and find.
It’s a video week for me. One morning was dedicated to new videos for the website my website makeover in progress. This week is a deep dive into my speaking book as the finishing touches are put on the all new online course that has been in the developmental stage for the past year. Slides are done. Workbook done. All it needs is the voice and Ta Dah is around the corner.
All my May podcasts have been completed. I love having that done before the new month starts. You definitely want to listen in with paper and pen … Jane Wood reveals some awesome ideas to get you and your books into schools. I love it when I learn new tips.
Three of my clients are in the midst of their Amazon bestseller campaigns this weekend—all achieving multiple #1s. Bravo to Claudia West for The Zoo on the Sea, Charlie Best and Cathy Connolly for Flavours with Benefits-France, and Connie Davis for Risking is Better than Regretting.
That’s my past week … how about you … what are you up to?
