Book publishing presenters

Have you ever wanted to write, design and publish your own book? 

For our next Colorado Collective meeting, I’ve arranged some time for Sue Lion and Tim Meehan to talk to you about their traditional and electronic book publishing experiences. 

Publishing Children's Books

As many of you already know, Sue has been very successful publishing her own books as well as assisting with illustration and design for other authors.
  
Sue will talk to us about her experiences in designing, marketing and publishing children and young-adult books.

You can some of her books at the link below.

Publishing Electronic Books

Tim Meehan has been at the forefront of Apple products for over 23 years. His well-rounded background includes graphic design, illustration, UI/UX, branding, instructor, and pilot. 

Tim will give a brief demo on how to use Apple’s iBook Author and will (attempt) to finish and post a new iBook to the iBook Store during our meeting.

Groundhog Day

I will find a way to place bets on whether Punxsutawney Phil will see his shadow Thursday, February 2nd. Must attend to participate. 

Snow Day

Our meetings are on the first Wednesday of every month unless it’s snowing. I canceled the last two meetings (December and January) due to snowy weather.  

SO if it’s snowing in either the Boulder or Denver area, assume I’ll want to cancel our meeting. Mostly I just don’t want anyone wasting their time stuck in traffic, or risking a fender bender or worse for our meeting.

December 7th Meeting

We will meet again on Wednesday, December 7th from 9 to 11am at the Allegro Coffee Roasters at 4040 Tennyson Street, Denver, CO 80212.

Let’s talk about the future. 

What do you want to get out of the CC network, the website, or it’s meetings in 2017?

FOR HOMEWORK: I want everyone to think critically about where they are now and where they want to be in 3 years from now.

THEN - When we meet tell the group about your plans for 2017 and how those plans get you to where you want to be next. 

IF you don’t know or are not sure where you want to be next, instead let’s take time to talk about that. It’s definitely not unusual to not know, or not be sure of something. I think collective hive-mind will be able to help you uncover something you didn’t know or think about.

Update on portraits:

The studio I usually rent went out of business, or stopped  renting its space out. I think I found a replacement, but need to make arrangements…My goal would be to get that done sometime before ThanksGiving.
