The past couple of days I’ve spent working on a video trailer for my upcoming release, A Destiny Denied. After countless attempts and edits, I finally figured out how to make the new program work. I was so impressed with the results, I paid for the pro membership. That’s saying a lot. My advertising budget is practically nonexistent. I’ve had to do what I can, when I can, with what I have available. Having a video trailer for your book is not a necessity. I just happen to like them. I think they add a nice touch when you’re trying to promote your latest release. I have one for all of my books. With Kizoa, I’ll be able to continue making them.
Today, I’ll be attending a Writer’s Conference. The schedule is jam packed with workshops and celebrated speakers such as R. L. Stine (Goosebumps fame), Monique Patterson (St. Martin’s Press executive editor), Jaycee Ford, and Melissa Marr, among many others. I went last year for the first time. While I found it interesting, I was disappointed to find that it was all geared toward publishing houses. Pleased to see that this year’s schedule has topics that address self-publishing, I have a feeling I’ll get a lot more out of the experience. I’m sure I’ll leave with inspirations and new ideas to keep me writing.
Speaking of which, there’s a story that requires my attention.
Till next week,
