Yesterday, I delivered the first Book Publishing 101 for Newbies. What fun as seven of us dug into “the book” –to be or not to be! I love the creativity that bursts from so many.
Two items popping up next month: the AuthorYOU SALONs slated for July will be on the 13th … that’s next Saturday here in my home. A perfect AM planned for authors located in Colorado. Coffee and Tea are on me – bring ideas and questions … always—you leave with ideas and answers. If you are in Denver area, drop by … it’s the AuthorYOU Salon a gathering and brainstorming for authors starts at 9 and goes to Noon. And you bring a snack to share and new socks that I give to the homeless and those in need. If you are in my “hood” … come on over! Meet me at Casa Quatar—that’s my home! Details are at www.Meetup.com/AuthorYouSalons.
And the annual BBQ will be on July 6th … just eating, networking, and catching up.
What are you planning for the 4th? And how has your week been?
Friday mornings are the place to be with other authors! I love the Friday coaching that happens early each Friday AM. I always have a “new tip” for the group, then it opens up to “catch up” and “asks”. Become a subscriber so you can get
Friday Coaching for less than a weekly glass of wine; for less than a weekly Bacon, Egg & Cheese Biscuit – Combo at Chick-fil-A; for less than 3 movie tickets! ALERT …we do this on Zoom … you need to connect with me. Only $27 a month—limited amount of subscribers allowed. We gather via Zoom at 7 AM. The dress? Totally casual. Get on board –it’s fun and informative … and you get all questions answered. This is for any author anywhere!
