Good Authoring Day to YOU
Happy Halloween to all of you … and it’s a BLUE Moon tonight in all zones of North America … fabulous!
Today is the final day to grab a FREE copy of my bestselling author must have: Grab my treat for you … no tricks! How to Avoid 101 Book Publishing Blunders, Bloopers & Boo-Boos. Get it here: http://bit.ly/BookPubBlunders
It’s a recovery week for me—hopefully with all fingers and toes crossed, my final ankle surgery yesterday was truly the final one! Then, it’s mixed with a writing week ahead.
“In the can” is what it’s called when tapings are done for the rest of the year for the AuthorU-Your Guide to Book Publishing podcast … and yup, they are all done through December 31. All-new, no repeats. Oh, topics get duplicated in some way—but new guests; new strategies; new juice!
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 (it’s boatloads of work) and working on two different books for other clients to get them across their finish lines.
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?
Plus, the AuthorYOU first Saturday program is set up—author and writing and book marketing pop and pizzaz. On Tuesday, Casey Demchak rolls out his excellent Marketing Copywriting workshops. A great week ahead … PARTICIPATE!
