Wahoo … Author Shark Tank … NEW!
Three HOT sessions will be available. Only ONE Extravaganza Attendee can get his or her toe in a Author Shark Tank at a time. Our panel will listen for a few minutes to your pitch (hear/read that: LISTEN) and then decide IF and HOW they will help the author in the book quest. If could be money; it could be time; it could be a product–as in I have this that I sell all day for $797 and it’s yours; it could be printing reduction; it could be a book cover; it could be a discount on a layout; it could be … What it could be will be solely dependent on YOU and YOUR PITCH to hook them and could be worth many thousands of dollars. Or if you bomb, you may only end up with a shark tooth! To enter the tank, the cost is $500. There are only 3 spots–will one be yours? This is first come, first serve basis.

Wahoo … Create a Stellar Video (spots are limited!) BONUS!

At the Extravaganza you will learn how to perform on national television and radio while appearing calm and collected during the Eaglet session Thursday.

The key to any good performance is preparation. Just as actors do, media guests need to know what they are going to say during all their performances and practice their delivery of each word beforehand. Adequate preparation will make you more confident in your ability to perform and help you relax while you are on the air. At the Eaglet/Newbie session on Thursday afternoon, May 2, you will get the prep info you need.

During the Extravaganza on Friday and Saturday, you have the opportunity to make a stellar, short video. The cost is only $50—use it for your website, YouTube channel—whatever! Brian Jud will guide you through your interview and you will get the clip emailed within a week after the Extravaganza. You must sign up to participate in the video shoot—there are limited slots available Friday and Saturday, shooting times are 10-3 each day.

Wahoo … Pick Their Brains Back again, this is the time you can get a face-to-face with many of our Speakers. Throughout Friday and Saturday, we have one-on-one sessions that last 15 minutes. Have your questions ready–get a maxi-consult in mini-time for mini-bucks. Cost is $15, moneys go to the Author U Foundation which will seed the Authors Hall of Fame. You must register for Pick Their Brains onsite at the Author U Registration Desk–it’s a first come, first served basis based on availability.

Wahoo … Saturday Laugh Special at the Improv!
The Extravaganza is over. If you are staying over before heading home, or a Colorado local, we are heading to the Improv for Laughter, supper and beverage. Author U will get you there. Cost is $15 a head–for the show–you buy food and beverage. Comic Hypnotist Rich Guzzi is the star of the night: Watch as Rich invites volunteers from the audience to be hypnotized right before your eyes and then puts them into the most outrageously funny situations you can possibly imagine. No two shows are alike and you will laugh till it hurts on this non-stop roller coaster ride of comedy mayhem. Here’s a clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zrBliaZWcro If you are going, you need to register for this by April 20th. Cost is $15 … you buy your own food and drink (discounted from $17). Send an email to Judith@Briles.com and put in subject line: comedy show. Author U will pre-pay for your ticket, you can pay at the Extravaganza when you check in.

Wahoo … Friday is Time to Eat, Schmooze, Party!
Author U Extravaganza’s rock and roll band rocks- fun for authors!!! See (and hear) what multi-award winning book cover and interior designer Nick Zelinger does in his spare time—it’s toe tapping, feet moving, even sign a few lines time at Author U! (Music by the Thin Ice Band – voted Colorado’s Number 1 Cover Band – 3 years running )

Wahoo … Get an Extra Ticket for the Friday Night Dinner & Band and Make It Date Night! Grab your favorite partner and attend Author U’s Dinner and Date special. The Ice Thin Band is back and ready to rock to the masses. Have a great dinner; listen to the band (voted Colorado’s #1); you may even want to sing along; or get your feet and bootie out on the dance floor.

Lead singer is our own Nick Zelinger–we will see him next year … get it on your calendar May 2-4, 2013 … great way to unwind after a jammed-packed information day.

How come the ones that work the hardest are the last to leave the party?! Author U members boogie at last year’s Extravaganza post dinner party.

Create the Ultimate Bestseller at Sea
Jan 18 – Jan 24 all-day

Publishing at Sea

OH-OH … You are going to miss this boat … the Publishing at Sea cruise is SOLD OUT!

Authors who need a crash course in book publishing before they write, or need to create demand for books that aren’t selling, can learn the inside secrets of how to write and market a bestseller, during a Caribbean cruise Jan. 18-23, 2014.

The “Create the Ultimate Bestseller at Sea!” cruise includes training sessions and laser coaching by five book publishing experts:

  • Book shepherd Judith Briles, who has written 31 books, including several bestsellers. She hosts the annual Author U in Denver which trains thousands of authors and publishers.
  • Publicity expert Joan Stewart, aka The Publicity Hound, a former journalist who has coached, mentored and trained thousands of authors, writers, publishers, CEOs and  business owners, on how to self-promote.
  •  Book distribution expert Amy Collins who knows every facet of the book distribution labyrinth and has worked with major publishing houses as well as independent authors.
  • Book marketing expert Penny Sansevieri, who has helped make 11 books bestsellers in less than two years.
  • Branding expert Georgia McCabe, a social media strategist and best-selling author, helps authors by predicting how evolving technologies will combine with consumer needs to create business opportunities.

The cruise aboard the Royal Caribbean’s “Brilliance of the Seas” will leave port in Tampa, Fla., and travel to George Town on Grand Cayman, and then onto Cozumel, Mexico.

At sea, participants can attend 12 intensive sessions on strategic book marking, distribution, publicity, professional speaking, social media and other topics important to creating a bestseller. They can also take advantage of laser coaching with the four experts. In port, participants are free to relax and enjoy the sites.

The cost for all workshops, the cruise, taxes and gratuities is $1,100 per person for an outside, ocean view cabin, or $1,200 per person for a balcony. If you were to buy a collective hour of the five “Chicks at Sea”, it would cost you $1500!  Grab your spot for the ultimate working vacation.

Registrants can pay for the trip over six months, via PayPal, with no interest.  All details are on the PublishingAtSea.com website for each workshop.

Did you know that adult coloring books are rocking it in book sales?

But consider this…

Adult coloring books and other low content types of books are easy to create and profitably publish IF you know how to use complicated graphics like Photoshop or Gimp Shop. 

But what if you don’t? As you like the idea … but where is the Dummies version?

Get ready … this webinar has that solution for you.

On Wednesday, November 8th, we’re going to show you a brand-new way starting at NOON Mountain time—11AM Pacific and 2 PM Eastern.

Here’s the other great thing you can use this to create:

  • Adult coloring books
  • Children’s coloring books
  • Maze Books
  • Game Books
  • Action Guides
  • Journals
  • Diaries

and much, much more!

Get ready to create new products that compliment what you have now. Create something spanking new. And have fun.
