My camera came today for my forthcoming YouTube channel. The UPS truck backed into our driveway and gave a friendly “Toot! Toot!” on his horn. It was getting darker outside and thundering in the distance when the saint went to sign for the box. I couldn’t help but think of the oft’ used phrase, “It was a dark and stormy night…” What a nice start to a horror author’s YouTube adventure, I thought to myself, amused…
Some general information on the channel thus far:
- I’ll be staying off camera mostly and will probably be using subtitles with background music. I’m sure the style will evolve as I learn and become more comfortable, but this is my foundation so far.
- I’ll be doing arts and crafts projects, discussing literature, the horror genre and writing as a whole. I’ll be talking about my own writing, too, of course.
- One of my goals is to film a book trailer for Memory Bound. This will definitely be a bigger project that will take some time, but I’m looking forward to the process. Hopefully we don’t scare the neighbors too much…
I hope you’ll join us on this adventure. I’m going to start filming tomorrow to test out some ideas and get used to the software I’ll be using. It’s definitely a big step for me, but it’s a dream I’ve had for a long, long time. 😊
