I loved this post that popped up on Facebook from one of my favorite book designers, Nick Zelinger. He’s at the awesome AuthorU Extravaganza … you should be there too! Read on …
As a book designer, author and musician—I get to wear many hats—and this May 7-9, I’ll be in seventh heaven! The AuthorU May Extravaganza is THE premier event for authors and writers, publishers, editors, schmoozing together and learning the most recent publishing and marketing strategies from the nation’s top experts.
So here is Number 1 in my Top Ten Reasons (and, BTW, in no particular order since they are all tops):
A very special Friday night performance by New York Times bestselling author and country music star, Jimmy Wayne.
I first caught sight of Jimmy when he was a guest on the TV Show “Daryl’s House” (from Daryl Hall & John Oat’s fame). Jimmy did such a dynamic rendition of the Hall & Oat’s classic “Sarah Smile,” that every band member turned and grinned as Daryl Hall himself said, “Wow, that was spot on—the way it should be done!” He’s had a string of smashes, including the number 1 hit “Do You Believe Me Now.” A truly gifted musician.
A former foster child, Jimmy is the national spokesperson for the National Court Appointed Special Advocate Association (CASA). He’ll be signing his recent release, Walk to Beautiful: The Power of Love and a Homeless Kid Who Found the Way, a New York Times bestseller. In honor of his appearance, a special donation will be made to CASA.
Oh—BTW—Jimmy Wayne walked half-way across America for his “Halfway Across America” Campaign—finishing his trek on a broken foot—all to bring awareness to the cause of foster kids who are aging out of the system.
Finally, as I’m a presenter this year and an AuthorU member, there’s a generous discount for attending: Register at the AuthorU member rate—use the promo code: AU2015—and save a whopping $200!!

How cool is Nick’s post?! I look forward to meeting Jimmy Wayne on Friday, May 8th in Denver, CO and taking the walk to beautiful event. I’ll be there … the question is, will you? If you want to be seriously successful, you will be at the AuthorU Extravaganza too.
