When: SATURDAY, October 28th Time: 1 – 4 pm Where: Host Judith Briles’ home: Heritage Eagle Bend, 8122 S Quatar Circle, Aurora CO 80016 The Treat: 15 authors sharing with you about their books and who they are in 30 seconds each. All books will be displayed on tables to “check-out”. Books are IDEAL gifts … for yourself, for others. All will be priced at less than what you can buy them on Amazon. Authors will be signing—some books even come with ribbons! We have books for guys, gals and kids! And, we always have free books while they last that are donated by some of the authors. Plus tables laden with tasty goodies. YUMMERS!

RSVP by REGISTERing … it’s a FREEBIE and a perfect was to spend a few hours on a Saturday afternoon as Autumn continues to share its colors. Tell Judith NOW that you are coming (and how many guests you are bringing). Yes, you can invite your friends to come as well—the more, the merrier! We just want to make sure that we have plenty of food.

  • NOV 9 Gathering for AuthorYOU SALONS ... Winter Is Coming!

    The Book Shepherd's Offices

    The leaves have fallen; hats and mittens are part of the outside uniform; how's your book doing? What about marketing? And you--what about you. What are you doing to plan for the coming year? November is always a great month--sometimes a little snow; sometimes brilliant (but not hot) sunshine. Balanced--this month is all about bringing balance into your authoring and publishing journey. • What are you celebrating in your publishing journey this year? • What is one insight or concept that you learned about and implemented and made a difference to you and your book? • What are your plans for next year? AS ALWAYS, All gatherings start with a flip chart and a question: what do you need? The morning is then off ... who knows what paths it will take? Is there a book in the works? Are you stuck? Curious about the various publishing options? Ask your questions ... AND participate. The value of the group is to give, not just take. The AuthorYOU participants are true masterminds. The SALONS created will expand your projects and the breadth of your success. If you want to make your book happen ... here's the inner circle that has ideas and experience to kick start it, goose it and just get the launch started. Your answers are in the room. There is no charge except your "fee" is to bring a healthy snack to share and some NEW socks (I'm a sock Ambassador and donate for homeless and kids who need them),, your ideas, questions, an open mind and meet other authors. No question goes unanswered! --come at 9, stay til noon-- Warning: if you are a "no-show," you get two passes; after two misses, future participation will be based on availability.

It's time to turn up the heat. This final month of the year is a great time to gather, ease into a chair, sigh a tad … and celebrate what you have done. We authors love the Holidays -- let's gather for an end of the year celebration of fabulous ideas shared and brainstorm how to come out of the New Year with an implementation plan to make it the best ever. • What are you celebrating in your publishing journey this year? • What is one insight or concept that you learned about and implemented and made a difference to you and your book? • What are your plans for next year?
