An Invitation from the Famous Judith Briles

I am excited about presenting at this writers conference and--of course--had to let you know about it! I'd love to see my SharingwithWriters subscribers and visitors there. If you come, please be sure to introduce yourselves. I just reconnected with a wonderful attendee I met back in 2008 at the Erma Bombeck conference for humor writers. It's this kind of thing that keeps me happy!

2. AuthorU has created a killer pricing deal that you should not miss for you because you are one of my followers for my posts and blogs.

First, the AuthorU Extravaganza:

1. The theme this year is Daring Greatly. We ’ve assembled the “best of the best” to take you and your book to soaring heights of publishing and marketing success. There are 25 exceptional experts and presenters ready to share a “no-holds-back” information and advice including Carolyn Howard-Johnson with tons of frugal tips for you.

2. Book Marketing Expert John Kremer will be doing a very, very special Deep Dive Dinner Workshop on Thursday, September 15th.

John has shown authors how to dare greatly for years; he has mentored authors who have sold over a billion books and is founder of the Billion Book Initiative to help the next generation of book authors sell another billion books. Are you ready to Dare Greatly and be part of this next generation?

3. All sessions are General Sessions on Friday and Saturday, all —you don’t have to worry about “choices” … you hear it ALL.

4. Ask the Experts and Pick Their Brains. You have questions—all our speakers are Experts. One thing many wanted was more time to mix with the speakers. Ask the Experts (our speakers) takes place during lunch when you will have at least one speaker/expert at your table PLUS you can book individual time throughout Friday and Saturday. Ask the Experts and Pick Their Brains are open to all attendees and includes lunch.

5. Evening Reception. On Friday after Rounds with the Pros before our gourmet dinner (and we do mean gourmet), Ingram Spark is hosting a reception for attendees and speakers. Building community is important to authors—your growing network is invaluable to your success. This is open to all attendees.

6. Call the hotel and reserve your room at a special reduced rate. Right now, rates are posted online through the “hotel discount” sites at $184.
