My wife got me to sign up with Pinterest after seeing the image below. I know in the past I just couldn’t come up with an alternative to very (something) but this will help a lot. I’ve printed it out and posted it on my desk shelf to check when I get hung up again. Thought you might be interested.
Well, I was set up and ready for the first day at ALL-CON Thursday. I was looking forward to meeting with other sci-fi fans. Then Friday morning I found a note on my table stating by order of the City of Dallas all events with over 500 attendees will close by 11 a.m. March 13, 2020. Oh well, there’s next year.
Well, gang, this Wednesday I’m heading to Crown Plaza in Addison, TX, to get ready for ALL-CON. It starts on free admission Thursday at 3:00. You can check out the info at https://all-con.org/ and, if you attend, come over and say “Hi”. I’m at the booth B-12, the vitamin booth. My publisher name is Ink Slinger Enterprises.
Hope to see ya there.
My first attempt creating a YouTube Video. What would you do if you found an abandoned flying saucer in your own backyard? Me, I would fly it like I stole it. Post below what you would do… Check out what Jack Slater did in USA: Eliminated!, available on Amazon at… www.amazon.com/gp/bookseries/B081K8M5TB#
A little something for my fellow authors (and other small businesses). I was just reading “The 10 Commandments of Author Branding” by Shayla Raquel about using social media. It has a good section on Facebook and she mentioned something I wanted to share. On page 50 she says… “Fact: according to Facebook’s policies, you’re not supposed to use your profile as a business.” If you do, Facebook can suspend your profile or shut it down. For authors, it’s best to create an author page on Facebook for your business (it’s still free).
I’ve had some people ask about my bookmarks so I decide to share them and give a little background on the races. They are all introduced in someway in my second book, Conflict: Earth!, available on Amazon at www.amazon.com/gp/bookseries/B081K8M5TB# , B&N, and other fine bookstores.
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.
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.
