I am slowly, but surely, learning my way around my video editing software a bit more. I completed my Bean Bunny painting today and compiled my footage together into a video on my YouTube page. I had a bit of trouble with the quality of the paint as I went along, but I think we got somewhere. Cheers!
Just some short and sweet, spoopy painting on good ol’ Jack. I am still learning how to film and edit, but I think I see progress. Where, you ask? Just ask Jack. He was there.
I love Jack-O-Lanterns. I should put a pumpkin in my next book. How’s your current work in progress? Let us know in the comments below. Enjoy everyone.
I wombled up to bat today and took a swing at reading a few pages of my book, Memory Bound. This short excerpt is taken from the beginning of the prologue on pages 1-2. Memory Bound is a horror book and can be found on Amazon in both hard copy (soft cover) and as an e-book. Or you can request your local library to order a copy for you to read and to add to their circulation.

Fiddled around some more with my new camera and editing software today. The steamworks on YouTube is slowly getting up and running. I also discovered how to do subtitles. Let the snarky humor commence…

With these poison ivied hands, I filmed and posted my first video on my Author YouTube page. It’s definitely a practice video–I was getting used to my camera, a new video editing software I’m trying out and the process of uploading to YouTube. I know I’ll probably chuckle at this video in a few years, but in good humor.
The videos will vary and either have subtitles or me (possibly) talking in the future. For this round, I just have some music playing. Enjoy and happy writing. Ker-kaw!
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. 😊
