Top Ten Twitter Tweets of January 12, 2019

For me, I’m happy to see January and 2019 arrive. So many new changes within AuthorYOU; many books to work on with authors; the annual Publishing at Sea cruise is one week away and I go on a writing retreat in two weeks.

For Colorado authors and authors-to-be, attend the monthly First Saturday program.
