Top Ten Twitter Tweets of December 31, 2022

Good Authoring Day to YOU

… And Happy Saturday to you!

The Top Ten Twitter Blog started eight years ago. Today, it will be retired—time for something new. I’ve shared over 4,000 tips during that time with links to more info; how-to; and insights during the time.

Next week, my new weekly Saturday blog will debut, replacing the Twitter one. My promise … it will be:. Short. Insightful. Sometimes inspiration. Sometimes get off your tush push … welcome to: Dr. Judith’s Saturday Blog: Be a Doer … Not a Dreamer. 

It’s New Year’s Eve around the world. In my household, it’s a quiet time. We don’t go out. Working in the ER—too many accidents that convinced that there “was nothing like home—stay put” and I have done so since unless I can walk to a neighbor’s home.

Jazzed to learn that the local B&N is ordering in my new book, The Secret Journey co-authored with Brian Barnes. It’s historical fiction with a twist … get yours:

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. Get registered NOW on my website under the Experiences tab.

It’s Caturday … ahh … when it comes to book marketing, the wise author keeps their eyes open. Create a plan. One step at a time. Move forward.

Wishing you all a wonderful day and a successful New Year.  Please join me next Saturday for the Saturday Blog with dr. Judith … Be a Doer and Not a Dreamer.
