Good Authoring Day to YOU

… And Happy Saturday to you!

Woot … Snappy Sassy Salty Success for Authors and Writers is now loaded into Amazon and IngramSpark. Then, it’s the takedown of everything OLD. A task, indeed. Lots to do… get Author Central into the act. Move old reviews over. And add the “redirect” widget for Amazon from the old to the new. Lots to do, for sure…

It’s Caturday … all of us need “quiet time” – a time to think, imagine, play with words. The words you use will be placed in the imagination of your readers. And by you.

That’s me for this Saturday … how about you … what are you up to?

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 that I lead with—a “show and tell how to do ‘it’ … whatever ‘it’ is, then it opens up to “catch up” and “asks”. Become a subscriber so you can get Friday Coaching for only $37 a month for VIP AuthorYOU members, $75 for non-members—limited number of subscribers allowed. We gather viz Zoom at 7 AM.
