What an amazing weekend! I held my Author’s Boot Camp this weekend and WOW! The 8 weeks of preparation over the summer really paid off, 14 authors got their books out of their head and talked their books this weekend. It was so exciting to see them, shaking with excitement when they were done. Yes, many of them were exhausted, yet exhilerated, having created their books. It was truly a magic moment for them, and for me.
Friday night we celebrated, got a good night’s rest and began learning about creating ancillary products on Saturday. Today was about marketing and promoting our published books using a variety of strategies, both online and offline. A fantastic dinner to wrap up the evening. Yes, it has been quite a weekend, it was wonderful to read the survey forms and letters of thanks.
I’m driving back to Palm Springs tomorrow after breakfasting with my new authors from Holland, France, Australia, Chicago, Denver, Maryland, Hawaii, Wales, Las Vegas, San Diego, Phoenix, and North Carolina. I am so proud of them! I will miss their wonderful hugs, eager faces and warm hearts.
To your writing success!
