Good Authoring Day to YOU

… And Happy Saturday to you!

It’s the second Saturday in December—meaning that it’s AuthorYOU salons … both online starting at 7 am MT and in-person in my home at 9 am. Tonight, I’m looking forward to having the first of several Holiday dinner gatherings around my dining room table.

This Sunday will be the last author holiday party I host … look forward to seeing many.

The house decorating is done. Shopping for dinner parties is done. Cooking is next.

Many have asked when I will offer my Amazon Bestseller Campaign four-week workshop. The first dates are set: February 8, 15, 22, March 1. You can register early on my website under the Experiences tab.

It’s Caturday … ahh … who doesn’t love the lights and the smiles that are everywhere this time of the year. Enjoy it … it is one of the things I love about this time of the year.

That’s me for this Saturday … How about you?… What are you up to? …

Friday mornings are the place to be with other authors! I love the Friday coaching that happens early each Friday AM.
