NOTE--we are starting at 8.30 a.m. today ... I have a theater date with my kids in the early afternoon! Has your book and writing joined the Holiday crowds ... tucked into packages as gifts, ready to delight the recipient ... or is it snug in a carton waiting for winter to thaw before reaching out for sales? 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? 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.
