Thank You from AuthorU to Authors Worldwide

This is the final blog from … beginning, next month, your feed will be coming from AuthorYOU and The Book Shepherd as we combine our resources that were outlined in the October 31 blog.

December is always the month that has too, too much packed into it. There’s the year-end “I’ve got to get this done NOW” push. Then there’s the more events, parties and gatherings to attend and host not to mention the shopping pressure. In between, there’s the desire to just STOP, sit back and marvel at the variety of images, colors, lights and “the feeling in the air” that explodes during this time of the year.

thank you

This is the time when most reflect on what has rolled out the past year–the activities and relationships that have enriched what we’ve done. And this is the month when appreciation comes wrapped in a variety of gifts–colleagues, peers, staff, friends and of course family–all part of your magical puzzle that makes it work.

Thank you to all who are critical components of the world–our staff; volunteers; associate and premier partners who are essential in creating your books; the team that puts our radio show together; and all the IT people who bandaid, fix and recreate the behind the scenes that keep things moving.

Thank you to all who read the 100+ blogs that get posted throughout the year; who re-share with those in your circles and take the time to comment, even call the office.

Thank you for all who participate in free Monday tele-coaching that we do and to the 2,000,000 plus listeners that tuned into our radio show, AuthorU-Your Guide to Book Publishing during the year.

Finally, here’s to you in turning your dreams into delivered goals in 2018. All of affiliated with and will be here to help you on your way. If there is a topic, a program, a blog, an article that you would like to see us bring to you, reach out and let us know. Whoever you are; wherever you live and work … here’s to you: thank you.

Our intent is to be here for you: to assist you in defining your goals and reaching them; to creating your “expert” mark in and on the world; to be a seriously successful author; continue to read our blogs; and to be a participating member.

dare greatly

As an author, you become a “darer”–do it greatly …
