Good Authoring Day to YOU 

Oh … it looks like it’s going to be a hot, Hot, HOT August globally. How I wish I could slip into a pool and just have a good dip/float as the temps increase. Alas, maybe next month when I transition to walking once again. It can’t come too soon!

I’m noodling a bundle deal for all my publishing books at 50% off based on the Book Brush webinar we did last week—loved it! And I’ve come up with a new set of monthly posters to kick off each month. So … what’s new in your world?


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, then it opens up to “catch up” and “asks”. Become a subscriber so you can get
