Sensational Saturday Thoughts over Coffee

Marketing Muse

Define your Author Brand vs your Book Brand. Remember they are different things even though they link together. If you are pre-published start thinking about your author brand now!

Sensational Saturday

1. I love book writing conferences - I am at SCBWI Southern Breeze Conference. I spoke last night - glad it is over to I can enjoy the day. I love being in a room with writers. I soak up the energy.

2. Psssst _ I hear there is a great contest going on called Comment Your Butt Off and you win a free web site. Come back tomorrow and start talking to me. Since when can you enter a contest when all you have to do is talk.

3. I love my boots. I just woke up for the conference and realized I do not have my fav boots with me. Ok people,. I love my boots and the great thing is I have had them for about 3 years and got them at Target for 14.99$. What? I wear them everywhere - if you ever winder if you see me out and if you should say hi. look for my boots :) They are a dead give away.

4) I love my friends - having a blast with jessica, katie and betsy. We are having a spend the night party at Jessica. She gave us these cute pillow cases caled Bee Well Wishes. I post the link later - they are cute pillow cases for people who are sick.

5) Coffee is my lifeline. Short and simple!

Gotta go - battery low. more later

Fabulous point re: the author versus book brand. I thought long and hard about my author brand before I started blogging. I'd love to hear more about your thoughts on this topic!

You know, during your copious free time. :)

It's 6:45 p.m. here but you've gone and made me want coffee. Hope you had a fun weekend!

Hey, so how did the conference go? Sorry not there but man, this was one of the first weekends I've had in forever in which I did not do writing things. I felt so.. normal.
I bet the talk was fab, though!

1. I went to my first SCBWI conference in Nov. LOVED IT! Have a regional chapter mtg tomorrow night.
2. Have you heard U2's song "Get on Your Boots?" Your fav boots paragraph reminded me of that song...I have a favorite pair of boots too!

Even tho it is already Wednesday, my eye flew to the word "Butt" for your "comment your butt off contest." Why? Because I'm having a lot of trouble with BIC (butt in chair) today. Sigh
