Good Authoring Day to YOU …
… And, Happy Saturday
Looking forward to the How to Work with Bookstores program this am. Will you be there? Hope so … coffee will be ready and hot! Jon Marcantoni, Tattered Cover’s new Colorado author advocate will be “in the library” to walk us through how to submit and work with them. It will be IN-PERSON at the Smokey Hill Library. All info on the AuthorYOU.org Events tab.
How can it be that time of the year again … it’s the “fall back” weekend for many of us in the switch back and forth of Day Light Time and Standard Time. Clocks back an hour on Sunday. For me, I wish the back and forth would stop in a nanosecond.
And it’s Early Bird time for my Unplugged event slated for Nov 19-20. Will you be there? Early Brid ends on MONDAY, for the online combo Book Marketing and Social Media Unplugged. Join me for two full afternoons of author success. Unplugged is highly interactive. Workbook will be sent out before the start … Think book marketing … book launch … soaring on social media … growing your email list … and much more.
And, of course, it’s #Caturday. And this Saturday is about book marketing … and books sales. It’s the season. What are your plans? What are you doing?
That’s my past week … 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 $27 a month for VIP AuthorYOU members, $37 for non-members—limited number of subscribers allowed. We gather viz Zoom at 7 AM. Get on board –it’s fun and informative … and you get all questions answered. We do it via Zoom. This is for any author anywhere! Register– http://bit.ly/JudithCoaching

It’s final … the @TheBookies4315 bookstore in Colorado will remain “the Bookies” and now owned by the visionary Nicole Sullivan, founder of the @BookBarDenver. Creative from the get-go … I look forward to celebrating + supporting all. #Colorado #authors #books
[this is soooo true] Many think that the only way to get their book into #bookstores is through the traditional publishing path—this is hardly the case. Bookstores are more than happy to support local authors! Here’s how→ selfpub.is/3B7rLfN

You can’t read a book you don’t see! Since the ‘90s, display ads have been the most popular way to get the word out online. That’s because they cast a wide net—across the Net—even on a limited budget.
