February opens up a strategy session on how to get the BUZZ roaring .. about you; about your book. It's part of the author infrastructure. See you Saturday. • 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 Author YOU participants are true masterminds. The Circles created with 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.
