Good Authoring Day to YOU
So jazzed. Hopped on a train on Thursday and loved rambling through the Colorado mountains for a fun birthday weekend with friends and a few days off. With me were two books to read for FUN plus 7 entries for reading contest I’m judging.
And, so love this: Four books were finished this week for clients—two to print; two to layout. Two more scheduled for next week.
