Good Authoring Day to YOU

… And Happy Saturday to you! This afternoon, I look forward to authors gathering on my deck for an old fashion BBQ, Fingers crossed that the maybe rain to come will take a rain check and come later in the night. And today, my new office is getting its final touches. The continuation of the “repurpose”—a total redo … location, look, comfort. Loving it.

Two of my authors are leading into the third day of the Amazon campaigns. Gathering lots of #1s. Danita Johnson’s The Women’s Little Purple Book for Leadership and JoAnne Wagner’s Sir Pigglesworth Pinonia – a perfect adventure for kiddos. Join in and grade their eBooks before today ends.

Want a book your kids ages 6-10 will love to read?  SNAG your FREE eBook TODAY via @AuthorJ_Wagner—Book 4 of the Sir Pigglesworth series Women … Leadership Is Never a One-Size-Fits-All Role.
