Book 2 – Life of Doubt Trailer Video

Once again, I have been forced to work things out for myself. I paid someone to create a trailer for Life of Recovery and Life of Doubt weeks ago, and so far all I have gotten is a sad video for the first one. And by sad I mean… I hated it. That would just not do.

I got up this morning at normal time, 5 am, made coffee and set to work on the second video, Life of Doubt. I had already mapped out the song I wanted to use and the items that were to go into the video. All I had to do was figure out how to use the movie maker and upload it… how hard could that be?

It actually took about two hours for me to figure out how to use the program effectively, getting all of the timing exactly as I wanted it, and to complete the video. It also took another half an hour to get it uploaded, but it is done.

Now all I need is for a few people to go look at it and tell me what you think… so how about it?

I Can Twitter!!!

Oh my god – I get it!!! I have been messing with twitter off and on for weeks and could just not get my head around what the heck it was all about. So you guys leave me some comments here if I am or am not on the right track.

Twitter is like a massive instant message system. With like 140 characters per message. That means if you have a lot to say, too bad, you have got to cut it down. That is not really the hard part though.

The hard part are these silly hash-tag things. I just could not understand, but I refused to give up. So I played around with it, looked at other people’s tweets, did some clicking, and it is too funny… #anewlife has almost no one using it, and #lifeofrecovery had 3, including me. That is hilarious. The thing I have run into most during normal searches is OVERUSE and not being able to find my book when I am looking for it with one of those.

Now, I think what is supposed to happen is you are supposed to use tags that are popular, and I have that covered. So far I have tried out #goodbook, #suspense #romance, #romantic #suspense, #ebook, and #amazon.

Most of those get a good deal of traffic, but #amazon you can’t even keep up with. I love this!!! I want to make little tweets that have pieces out of my book just to attach the tags now, isn’t that funny? And here a few weeks ago I was thinking about not using it at all.

I do have one thought though… is it possible to over tweet?  I mean, I don’t want to run everyone off, now that I have over 70 followers – which I want to thank Up All Night Book Blog for most of those. If you haven’t gotten in on their drawing for a signed copy of my book, you still have about a day left.

Anyways, I hope that I don’t run anyone off, but I will probably start doing more tweeting now that I get how the silly thing works and see where it leads. Another new adventure – weeeeee.

 

If you want to follow me, I would love to have you, @SamJacobey, and feel free to retweet anything you like… I am loving this.
