Top Ten Twitter Tweets of March 09, 2019

It’s been a BURRRRRRRRRR week in my home state of Colorado. Temps in my neck of the woods have been as low as 5 below … that doesn’t bring into play the wind-chill factor. It means—stay in and write. Get caught up. Cook some delicious tummy warming soup. Watch a movie. Did them all!

The March AuthorYOU Circles will be held on a Sunday, March 10th due to my solid already booked Saturday schedule … perfect for authors located in Colorado—happens in my living room. 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 Author Circles brainstorming on from 9 to noon … coffee is on me.
