Oh-Oh … the big storm has started to hit the front range of Colorado, my home base. I’m thinking I will have at least two feet of snow at my doorsteps by tomorrow.
TODAY, I’m hunkered down and in this weekend. Looking forward to the AuthorYOU Salons this AM for brainstorming author, book marketing, and publishing ideas going forward.
Yup, Spring is trying to rear its head. Ideas forming … I’m blocking a few days just for ME to start the planning/outlining for my next book: The Author’s Guide to Book Marketing. I’m going to let my fingers and imagination take the lead!
My two bits for this last Saturday morning of the month.
