Looking forward to spending a few hours with authors this morning—it’s the Second Saturday of the month, meaning it’s the AuthorYOU Salons starting at 9 a.m. Mountain time. It’s a “grab your beverage of choice” … get ready with your questions … answers are in the Zoom Room. Details here: https://www.meetup.com/AuthorYOUSalons/
The heat is on for August—a norm in the U.S. and many parts of the world. My big question for you: how’s your writing doing? What about marketing strategies? Or, the morphing of old stuff that needs a facelift and makeover?
Fall is just around the corner … 2020 is a year none of us will forget. Don’t let the chasm of COVID and the year—and it’s been a doozy—stop you from moving forward. If you’ve been stalled … it’s given you the opportunity to re-access, regroup, relaunch. Not always a bad thing.
My two bits,
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
Friday Coaching for less than a weekly glass of wine; for less than a weekly Bacon, Egg & Cheese Biscuit – Combo at Chick-fil-A; for less than 3 movie tickets! ALERT …we do this on Zoom … you need to connect with me. Only $27 a month—limited amount of subscribers allowed. We gather via Zoom at 7 AM. The dress? Totally casual. Get on board –it’s fun and informative … and you get all questions answered. This is for any author anywhere!
