Oh, the thrill of producing and executing an event that earns raves all around.  My Publici-Tea™ cup runneth over.

Yesterday's 2nd Annual Publici-Tea™ and Book Publishing Summit at Seattle Design Center was brimming with amazing people, quality content, and the spirit of giving.   Our fabulous guests in the house — about 75 in all — contributed $432 to Rise N Shine, along with an abundance of incidental camp items to make this summer even more fun for kids whose lives are affected by HIV and AIDS.   And, additional sales have been flowing to my DIY Publicity Store that are bringing this total still higher every day.   Thanks so much to everyone who contributed their small change to make a big difference for these worthy kids.

Everyone posed for photos and shared wonderful video testimonials.   Gina O Daniel of O'Daniel Designs and Brad Tollefson of VLST Media are fast at work to create amazing work that will most certainly put our guests in the spotlight.  We should have the first round of images to share by Wed., Dec. 15, so stay tuned.

Patrick Snow delighted the audience with his insights, stories, and invitation to guide guests to step up and get their books out of their heads and onto paper to one day welcome new streams of income.

I shared the Rock Star Status Reality Check to help everyone realize the importance of getting ready for their moment in the spotlight, along with plenty of useful tips, suggestions, and success stories to inspire everyone into action.  It's one thing to say you want to be known as the expert.  It is another thing entirely to be truly ready to rock.  This quiz offers that timely reality check so many need to get dressed and ready to go to the show as the experts they are.

The Twitter love is flowing, and so are the raves on Facebook.  If you were “in the house” please keep the love flowing by referencing #publicitea in your posts.  I'd love to see your photos and learn your observations.  What were your “aha” moments and take-aways?  Please share!

And,  here is the holiday gift to anyone in the world who wasn't able to join us. Simply opt-in at www.publicitea.com between now and Christmas Day 2010, and you'll gain access to all these goodies as my holiday gift to you:

Based on the great feedback flowing, this is truly content not to be missed!   It's a big deal to produce an event like this, so treat yourself and don't miss it.  And tell all your friends from here and beyond to check out what we brewed up at the 2nd Annual Publici-Tea™ and Book Publishing Summit.
