About wildbillnash

I‘ve been a student of Ufology ever since my parents handed me a scrapbook with old articles of classic reports. I have investigated UFO reports, a few for MUFON—Mutual UFO Network— starting with the 1897Aurora, Texas UFO crash when the story resurfaced in 1972. I also taught a Continued Education class in Ufology for one semester at Mountain View College. Now I'm writing a trilogy that started back in '72 when a friend and I were planning of making our own movie. Over 10 years the short story became a trilogy. I hope when the books are published you will find them entertaining and informative.

All Con Dallas Event

I’ve signed up to promote my books and attend events at the upcoming ALL-CON Dallas this March 2020.  When I made my reservation at the hotel I learned there is also a Sci-Fi Con there as well.  Don’t know if it’s part of ALL-CON or not.  The guy at the hotel seemed to imply it’s a separate event.  I haven’t seen anything about it online yet.

The theme at ALL-CON is Battlestar Galactica.  Some actors from the originally series will be there.

If anyone is planning to attend look me up in the showroom.  I’ll be at the booth, B-12 (unless I get moved again).  My company name is Ink Slinger Enterprises.  Hope to see some of you there.

Pre-Book Review on Author Branding

I just started reading a book called “The 10 Commandments of Author Branding” by Shayla Raquel.  I saw her last October at Writers in the Field speak on branding and bought a copy of her new book.  So far I’m still in Commandment II, Thou Shalt Have a Local Writing Community.  One thing I liked was she said you should start branding yourself before you publish your book.  Now she tells me.  I’ve already published my second book.  Oops.

There are some other things she mentioned I liked as well.  Be yourself on social media, not a businessman/woman.  I spent right over 30 years running my DJ business before retiring and I find it hard to switch back when it comes to promoting my books.  So, here goes nothing.

If you’re interested in checking out her book you can find it here.

Merry Solstice to all.

It’s a beautiful day today in Dallas, Tx.  If we couldn’t have snow then low 70s if just as good.

I would like to wish everyone a great holiday season, whatever you are celebrating.  Be at peace and don’t forget to hug your family and friends.

Merry Solstice Everyone

A Great Tool To Advertise Your Book With

Ever had the need for banner ads for your book, and you don’t have Photoshop? Would you like 3-D images of your book? Well, for the last several months I’ve been playing around with an online program called Book Brush. I can tell you all about what they have to offer, but I want to keep this post short, so I’m going to highlight some of the goodies.

First, you choose an ad size and template. They have several predesigned ones for Facebook, Twitter, and so on. You can even design a custom one. Next you have an option to choose over 1 million background images (no, I didn’t count them all), or you can upload your own. Then you can create a 3-D picture of your book in several different angles and styles. Then you add the text for the advertisement. They even have stamps you can use to add logos for Barnes & Noble, Amazon, and a lot more (no more searching for the store’s logo to download). In the end, you just click to save and download for your postings and ads.

Other goodies are a Video Creator and Mockups (scenes where your book cover is inserted to). I created the two mockup images below, and the space scenes images are with custom backgrounds I uploaded.

The online program does have issues with IE and Edge browsers. It’s best to use the Chrome browser instead.

Overall, this program is an excellent tool for authors to promote their work. They have packages you can join; one is free (with limited use), and the other is $96 for a year. You can learn more about them at www.bookbrush.com .
