Good Authoring Day to YOU               

The Early Bird clock is ticking for the FIRST ONLINE Dr. Judith Briles Book Publishing Unplugged. If you are publishing and desire to be seriously successful, get registered. If COVID has slowed you down and need inspiration for a restart or a boost, get registered. If you are just starting down the path, definitely get registered. Here’s where to go:  The early bird ends on January 11th.

How can it already by the SECOND Saturday of the New Year … yet it is. Meaning, that it’s the AuthorYOU Salons. As COVID rolled along, we opened the doors to any and all authors. Forward with the new year, it’s back to being a benefit for AuthorYOU VIP members only.

“What’s an AuthorYOU VIP membership?” you ask.
