My little garden has outdone itself. The veggies are delicious. The stars have been the yellow squash this year. I so … do … not … want … summer … to … end. How about you?
The countdown is in the final stages. Next week as you read this, I’ll be in Breckenridge Colorado for the AuthorYOU AMAZING Extravaganza. So looking forward to it as we march forward to John Kremer’s grand finale with the “how to” of creating the excellent Tip-O-Graphics that he does to attract readers to his site like honey does for bees. So cool. Then tomorrow, away the fun morning with ace writer and editor Barb Wilson to goose up all out writing. Post, I’m staying over a few days just to … well … do I say it? Relax. A few of my clients are staying over as well. The goal: to finish their books.
The next AuthorYOU Circles is slated for Saturday, September 1st. All dates for 2018 at www.Meetup.com/AuthorYou AND, this is where you register to attend. Note—you need to join the Meetup group—it’s a freebie.
