Top Ten Twitter Tweets of September 14, 2019

Good Authoring Day to YOU …

TODAY, the 14th, the AuthorYOU Salon starts a half-hour early at 8.30 a.m. Why, because I’ve got to get to the hotel for setting up for the Authors Hall of Fame immediately after. The time slot is 8.30 to 11.30. See you then.

YES, YES, YES! Tonight, the Colorado Authors Hall of Fame rolls out. The media has been generous with excellent coverage from print and online. Several of the reporters will be attending the event—they didn’t want to miss it.

At Noon sharp today, we start loading the cars to head to the hotel for setting up tables. Whew … what a night we expect to have!

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 

Friday Coaching for less than a weekly glass of wine; for less than a weekly Bacon, Egg & Cheese Biscuit – Combo at Chick-fil-A; for less than 3 movie tickets! ALERT …we do this on Zoom … you need to connect with me. Only $27 a month—limited amount of subscribers allowed. We gather via Zoom at 7 AM. The dress? Totally casual. Get on board –it’s fun and informative … and you get all questions answered. This is for any author anywhere!
