Quick Video About Setting Up a YouTube Page

Part of branding is also having a YouTube page, nowadays. You could post video blogs to share with other groups that promotes your books. You could even do reviews of movies and books. There’s a wide range of things you can do with it.

Here’s the vid. Enjoy.

Colorful Word to Write Instead of Said

As we are writing our stories we often find ourselves typing “he said, she said, they said this or they said that.” Too many saids on a page will sound unprofessional. Also, you need to add some color, emotions, to what the character is saying.

In a lot of cases you can describe what the person is doing as they are talking without using he said. For instance…

Jack reached for the rifle. “You’re not going to make me use this, are you?”

But, if you prefer to use the colorful alternatives, here’s a list for you to look over.

Enjoy.

Ways to add color to speech.

Describing Someone’s Voice

Something for my fellow authors. Ever need to describe a voice in your writings and just can’t think of anything. Well, here are some examples that might help you on your way. Enjoy.

UFOs Spotted Flying Over Texas…

Jack Slater watched the image of the missile as it sped over the US. If only the warning had been more detailed. Anti-ballistic missiles and coastal laser defense had failed to shoot it down. It was just too fast. He examined the controls and hoped his plan worked. “Please,” he prayed. Only seconds before detonation, the image made his gut clench. He closed his eyes and slid his fingers up the panel.

What happened next is available on Amazon in the book “USA: Eliminated” by William D. Nash.   Read how Jack discovers an actual abandoned flying saucer which causes World War III.

Tips for Authors-Use Instead of Very

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.

Junk Mail and SASE Book Promotions

A little something I would like to share to my friends. My wife and I refinanced our house and got a better deal through Rocket Mortgage/Quicken Loans. Now I know why. They sell my contact info to others to make up the difference. Today in the mail we received 8 letters from different companies claiming they are working with Quicken Loans trying to sell us insurance for life and the mortgage. They had the ‘exact’ amount of the loan in each letter. Now let the spam begin…
 
The good side is I got 8 self-address stamped envelopes I’m going to use to promote my books. Instead of sending them their filled-out forms, I sending them each a card to promote the books (and they paid for the stamps).
