Has Your Blog Fallen Down and Needs to Get Up?

Has Your Blog Fallen Down and Needs to Get Up?

Summer “officially” passes this week. For authors, their eyes begin to look at upcoming Holiday sales. The thought of writing anything new moves to the back burner. Should it? Nope.

9 Lessons for Authors from the Author Shark Tank

9 Lessons for Authors  from the Author Shark Tank

This past week, I had the pleasure to, once again, put together the annual AuthorU Extravaganza. Three unbelievable days that made a lot of promises to attendees … and over-delivered. One of the events is the Author Shark Tank, a first-day event that invites selected attendees to pitch to AuthorU’s publishing pros. The pros want to help and indeed they did.

The Author and Book Tipping Point … or why show up on the 7th will make or break your book.

Extravaganza fury is in the air this week. Yes, it’s the last minute. Do you go? Do you stay home? Do you keep doing what you have been doing this past year? What’s your tipping point?

What and Why do I need more authoring, publishing and how-to information?—I mean, I’m on overload and overwhelm now.
Why would I want to spend money …

I get it… the “click” method is fast. Register, be there when it begins. Or, wait for the replay to be sent to you. Easy peasy. Bricking it takes a commitment. That “show up” thing …
