It’s another writing weekend coming up for me plus getting ready for the final surgery on my ankle next Friday. I’ve been busy taping future episodes of the AuthorU-Your Guide to Book Publishing podcast with many of the awesome AuthorYOU associate service providers with their latest tips, strategies, and techniques to support authors in your writing, book packaging, and book marketing. As always, 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 2021 with a bang—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.
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, then it opens up to “catch up” and “asks”. Become a subscriber so you can get
