Enjoy the long Labor Day Weekend … some of you will labor in the yard; in the kitchen prepping for the traditional weekend that marks the end of summertime vacations and gathering of friends and family; or maybe, just maybe, laboring over your writing and book. And celebrate the workers throughout the country who are the fabric of so much of what is wonderful.
Joan Stewart is here NEXT Saturday … will you get one of two HOT SEATS where Joan will do a deep dive on your book? It’s a Publicity Palooza … where authors who want savvy influence tips; who want to gain publicity grabbing moxie; and anyone who wants to get the attention of the media. It’s all happening on Saturday, September 7th. If I were you … I wouldn’t take a pass on this day. Register on the AuthorYOU website.
The following Saturday, on the 14th, the AuthorYOU Salons starts a half-hour early at 8.30 a.m.? Why, because I’ve got to get to the hotel for setting up for the Authors Hall of Fame. The time slot is 8.30 to 11.30. See you then.
As of this morning, only 10 seats remain for the Colorado Authors Hall of Fame Induction—the date is Saturday, September 14 … grab yours here: https://ColoradoAuthorsHallofFame.org
