Nov 3 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

November is a terrific month. It’s not freezing yet; Fall still is in the air, and authors are already thinking “next year” and planning ahead. Each March and November, I host my two-day Judith Briles Speaking Unplugged intensives. Speaking is the #1 way to sell your books–truckloads of them. Your take-aways this AM will be about speaking–I’ll share tips on how I created a successful speaking career that sold over 1,000,000 books and makes millions … why not create that for you and your book? This Saturday is the perfect time to take just three hours for you to get your brainstorming and masterminding hat in the publishing ring and kick off the coming out of winter.

Besides the answers to the “What I need to Know Before I Go” that is posted on the Flip Chart, you will come away with:

* Transition from the CWO to the CMO.
* Re-launch a tired book and add sparkle to your push.
* How to use social media to master book marketing.
* Learn about must have adds for you and your book.
* Learn how to add “juice” to what you are currently doing.
* Learn new author tools to add to your success.
* Always … get any questions you have answered.

Springtime in the Rockies delivers a split weather personality–we could have a little snow; some rain; or sunshine as the day begins. Inside, there will be plenty of HOT NEW ideas that will flip what you think and turn your head and attitude about what works and doesn’t work in today’s publishing arena.

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 and SHARE ahas, insights, and techniques, not just TAKE. If you are a taker, Author YOU is not for you.

The AuthorYOU participants are hungry for new information and delighted to share what works for them … and what doesn’t. The Circles 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 gets the launch started that The Book Shepherd Judith Briles leads each month. Your answers are in the room.
