Good Authoring Day to YOU …

The November second Saturday AuthorYOU Salons starts at 8.30 a.m., ending at 11.30 a.m. TODAY, November 9th.

It’s fun to hear how many in our community are jumping on the NANO training… it’s National Novel Writing Month. Get that draft done in 30 days. Whew!

Invites are being pushed out for my annual Author Fall Tea. The big day is Saturday, November 23rd (and for football fans—the Broncos aren’t playing). It’s at my home from 1-4. Always fun … lots of food … meet and greet local authors … get books for the best of the best gifts. Come!

And, the next day, November 24th—it’s a Book Brunch Celebration. My dear friend Mara Purl will debut the third book in her “heart” series: Why Hearts Keep Secrets AND I will officially launch my memoir, When God Says NO-Revealing the YES When Adversity and Loss Are Present, a book from my heart. And the menu? Why heart waffles, thick bacon, delicious quiches, fruit and cranmosas. It’s happening from 10 to noon.

Already thinking—do I start putting holiday lights up? I know this month is going to flow fast. Hmmmmm?
