Top Ten Twitter Tweets of September 28, 2019

Good Authoring Day to YOU …

Finally, the dreaded hacking, coughing, headache cold is exiting my body! Hope none of you get it. On my personal agenda is to finish five books this month. Some, the first writing draft and back to the authors for their input. Others to layout and the reveal of what the physical book will look like. Always an exciting stage.

I’m getting ready to launch my newest of Unplugged events: Book Marketing Unplugged in a month. There are a few seats left—is one yours? It’s already half full—and yes, I’m covering how to not lose your mental marbles with social media. Join me in Denver on October 18-19—all details on my website, under the Events tab.

And heading down to Houston, Texas for a series of presentations next weekend.

Don’t forget, for all of you in Colorado who participate in the second Saturday AuthorYOU Salons, the NEW time we start is 8.30 a.m., ending at 11.30 a.m. This was the popular recommendation of the 20 participants who were here last month.
