What we're about

AuthorYOU is for the emerging and birthed author and will be led by Judith Briles--the author of 36 books, the latest being How to Avoid 101 Book Publishing Blunders, Bloopers & Boo-Boos. It joins The CrowdFunding Guide for Authors & Writers, Author YOU: Creating and Building the Author and Book Platforms and Snappy Sassy Salty: Wise Words for Authors and Writers. The needs for authors and writers are different at various times, yet the DNA is the same.

AuthorYOU is about how-tos, what-fors and whys. Think of it as an experience that is safe for authors at all levels; always sharing usable information and fun.

AuthorYOU is about the education, mentoring of authors and writers in the fields of writing, authoring and publishing books.

AuthorYOU is FREE ... you bring a HEALTHY SNACK to share when attending LIVE meetings the first Saturday of the month ... and some NEW SOCKS.

AuthorYOU is held on the first Saturday of the month.

AuthorYOU sponsors the annual Author Autumn Tea, a celebration of authors and new books open to the public.

Your answers are in the room. In the Circle. If you have a specific question about your authoring journey; publishing; social media for marketing, you will find it. Egos are left at the door. Think of Author YOU as a mini-mastermind group with laser coaching attached--whatever your question is about authoring, books, publishing, the answer is in the room. You can't beat that!

A gathering spot has been created to schmooze with other authors on a monthly Saturday morning. At the beginning, each person is asked: What do you need today? You answer and the agenda is set. We all:

• brainstorm ideas
• get a little feedback (sometimes a lot)
• ask questions about a book in the works or already published
• figure out book marketing
• hang with other authors
• learn the latest in social media strategies
• get feedback on writing or an idea that's percolating
• whatever pops into your mind ...

... it just has to be authoring, writing and/or publishing connected. In other words ... get some help. There is NO set agenda ... what there will be as a stream of ideas and thoughts that will be shared and can be used to enrich your writing, your authoring and your success.

Cost: Free to begin. There's a "donation" jar by the coffee if you are so inclined to support the Meetup Organization annual fees (they run $15 a month). Judith Briles donates her time to you.

Rules: This is a free exchange of ideas and questions--Is there a book in the works? Are you stuck? Curious about the various publishing options? Do you just need to hang and schmooze once in awhile with other authors? Ask your questions ... you'll get answers. And, this is a "pay it forward" group--we help each other along this path. If you sign up and have two "no-shows," you will be put on the waiting list for future slots-each gathering has limited space.

Does AuthorYOU sound like a plan for you? Created in a "Salon" type environment--coffee, tea and water will be available. If you come, bring a snack to share with others. You show up at 9 and leave by noon--sometimes for the whole time, maybe just an hour. Think of AuthorYOU as the old-fashioned quilting circle--in our case, it's more like the Authors Circle--and a vibrant one it is. Join us and share your words and work and come away with insights and ahas.
