Good Authoring Day to YOU

Happy Saturday to you …

Looking forward to the AuthorYOU program this morning with Jeannette Seibly – Part I and Daniel Hall – Part II this AM.  Bragging … promo sharpening … cyber world. All on Zoom this month.

Winter is peeking around the corner. With a crisp 28 degrees, yesterday AM … it will be sprinkler shut-off time within two weeks; full scale winterizing; wrapping my tree trunks; and covering all the outdoor furniture. It will be a goodbye until April of next year.

For whatever reason, I was possessed to write the first blog for January 2022 … 10 social media Do’s and Don’ts. DO NOT MISS the IN-PERSON November program… Jon Marcantoni, Tattered Cover’s new Colorado author advocate will be in the house 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 Events tab. Get registered.

It’s #Caturday post time. Writing … what does that mean to you? At the Hall of Fame Induction … many of the participants remarked about being in a room surrounded by people who loved what they do. Yes, the joy of writing … publishing … of authoring.

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
