Good Authoring Day to YOU

… And Happy Saturday and Christmas to you!

This past week has been about visioning forward. Huge … and I mean HUGE plans on revamping all my publishing books on the inside and out.
John and I found our movie that we took in on our 47th … loved—will it be Spider-Man and had dinner at our favorite restaurant. Delicious crab cakes were my choice.

Going forward … Along with Leah, who’s been my full-time VA for 7 years, Jonathan has joined The Book Shepherd team … and is ready to dive into YouTube new videos plus revisions on three of my books. Lots’ happening.

It’s Caturday … Are you working in your zone … the “joy zone” where the words flow; where marketing hits the sweet spot; or where your creativity is doing a happy dance? This is your week to let it flow … relax … and then get ready to go. Here comes 2022!
