it’s a writing weekend coming up for me—some face to face time with clients as we write together via Zoom and then hunkering done—splitting time between new copy for my website and working on two different books for other clients.
Do you want to kick off the New Year—gulp, I can’t believe I wrote that—why not participate in November’s How to Create an Amazon eBook Bestseller—the how-to tips on how to write compelling, grab the social media reader copy for promo pushouts. Slated for Wednesdays, starting at 4 pm Mountain time, the next 4-week session rolls out. You’ll be ready to roll out 2021 in a big way … why not?
My two bits for this Saturday morning.
