On Wednesdays I like to share information I picked up on my journey to being published, marketing my first book, editing and preparing to be published again. Information that I wish someone would have shared with me, back then…

If you like the information I hope you will share it!

Book Trailers

A book trailer is a video advertisement for a book which employs techniques similar to those of movie trailers to promote books and encourage readers to buy.

As I was going over the marketing plan for my first book, Bristol boyz Stomp so I could fine tune my plan for my second book, The Stranger in My Recliner I came across my notes on book trailers.

I knew back then that I wanted a book trailer. I wanted it to be a tribute to my brother. It took some time to find somebody who not only understood what I wanted but was also willing to create it within my budget.

Selling a book requires evoking some sort of emotion from potential readers, something that gives them some idea of what is in the book. What better marketing tool than a ninety-second video to create interest, evoke emotion and end with a call to action.

Megaphone

A book trailer is a commercial but it doesn’t feel like one.

There are many companies and individuals that can create a trailer for you or you can make your own using a program like Microsoft Movie Maker.

Spend some time watching them on YouTube to get an idea of what appeals to you.

What I wanted was more like a movie trailer than a book trailer. I wanted to use family photos, family video and an Allen Parson’s song. It took some time to get permission to not only use the song but to change some of the words. There are independent musicians that would be more than happy to write music for your book trailer for the credits and exposure.

I was blessed to cross paths with J.C. from New Pace Productions. The company never created a book trailer and they agreed to give it a try.

We went into a music studio and our niece, Caroline recorded the song. J.C. took the music and added the photos, video and some new footage.

Caroline at Media Music (That piano belonged to Loretta Lynn)

J.C. felt the trailer was a beautiful tribute but it was not going to sell books. I reluctantly agreed.

The first trailer:

We came up with a script, a plan and got some help from one of the most talented voice over guys in the business, Scott Perry.

The second trailer:

I am planning to create a book trailer for The Stranger in My Recliner. The last time we just put the trailer up on YouTube and expected people to find it. That didn’t happen. This time around I want the trailer to be more like a short movie. I will embed the video into my website, add it to my Amazon author page and other retail sites, add it to my e-mail signature and use it in all of my marketing and advertising.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Drum Roll Please, The A-to-Z Challenge Theme Reveal is Today

 

I entered the A-to-Z Challenge for the first time three-years-ago to keep myself busy because the month of April is always a sad one at our house. My brother was murdered in a random road rage attack and my husband’s seventeen-year-old son died from suicide on the same April date, different years.

This year, in January I lost my father and a good friend and then in February I lost a very dear friend after a seventeen-month battle with cancer.

So this year I am really looking forward to the challenge, to visiting old friends and making new friends and being extremely busy doing what I love, writing.

For the first time, I actually have a theme and guess what? Today is the much anticipated A-to-Z Challenge Theme Reveal…

Because I LOVE Fairytales…please welcome Selah…

 

 

Welcome to guest poster, Selah Janel!  Thank you so much Selah for heping me out here at They say Everyone has a Story while I am traveling with BRISTOL bOYZ STOMP

 

 

 

 

It’s probably improper to start a guest post with a confession, but here goes nothing. My name is Selah Janel and I am a giant geek. We’re talking space opera-quoting, Cthulhu-loving,  fairy tale-studying geek…who may also throw down when a vampire doesn’t use his teeth. I don’t know at what point I fell in love with genre fiction (and film,  if I’m being honest) but I can’t imagine my life without it. Horror,  fantasy,  urban fantasy,  science fiction – each are dear to me in different ways. However,  as I’ve gotten older I’ve noticed that it isn’t always easy to be a woman and be into these things. Sure,  it would be somewhat acceptable if I was into genre fiction strictly because of paranormal, supernatural romance elements,  but I’m talking straight up genre stuff,  here (No offense to paranormal and supernatural romance – I love you,  too,  but you’re socially acceptable for a woman to like). I get a very different kind of reaction when I’m bumming around at cons or talking to people and mention that I really love H.P. Lovecraft or that I’m a die-hard Ray Bradbury fan. Apparently I’m not supposed to appreciate Clive Barker or Stephen King,  though thankfully Neil Gaiman is still socially acceptable for me to like in public.  Added to this was a particular incident where I was told point-blank that a woman’s place in the worlds I love so much has apparently been reduced to one purpose that will survive the sands of time: sex object.

After the obligatory fuming and eye-rolling, I’ve slowly let that commentary become an inspiration. Are the worlds of horror, sci-fi, and fantasy really as male-dominated as we’re led to believe? Are female characters bound to only be love interests, teen girls who pine away for their boyfriends, or shapely fantasies? I’m not particularly naïve, so I get that those kinds of themes have always been around and will always be here. I’ve made it a point in the past few months to start searching for books that still have the genre elements I love, but also have women characters I can get behind. What startled me is that in my cynicism I just sort of expected the offerings to be not so much. Instead, I’ve found that there are a lot of great titles to choose from. Also surprisingly, I’ve found titles written by both genders that are absolutely fabulous and versions of the typical fairy tales that we’ve been force-fed that are nothing like the ‘woman waiting for a guy to do the work’ edits that so many people have problems with. For every horror title that thrives on sexual victimization like The Travelling Vampire Show, there are books like Misery and Carrie that take feminine aspects and emotions and use them to genuinely terrify other than sensationalize. For every pulp fantasy title there are complex heroines like those offered in Lord of the Rings and books like Imajica, which definitely brings a lot of gender differences to light and uses it to argue if things would be better in a matriarchal society. For every Padme Amidala there’s a Princess Leia. For every Bella Swan there’s a character like Meg Murray or Poly O’Keefe (from Madeline L’Engle’s books) that proves that you can come of age,  have a romance,  and still legitimately save the universe. For every typical Cinderella there’s a Katie Woodencloak or Allerleijuah. My point is there’s a wealth of amazing,  fully developed female leads out there and authors that are willing to do them justice.

The problem is that they don’t necessarily get the exposure that their more clichéd counterparts do. Blame it on marketing,  blame it on franchises playing to younger audiences who haven’t necessarily been fed a diet of well-rounded characters. People have gotten used to sensationalism,  clichés,  and movie versions that don’t necessarily portray the depth the books they’re based on had. I consider myself well-read and I’m even now discovering new series that I wish I had known about years earlier. It’s frustrating. It’s maddening.

So what’s a chick to do? Like I said earlier,  this dichotomy isn’t anything new. If internet memes are anything to go by,  there’s already a back lash thanks to Twilight. Still,  it’s easy to put together a gag and post it online and not quite as easy to come up with a solution. I’m not saying that we need to boycott certain titles or franchises,  but I do think that being well-read helps. I’ve become a big fan of looking up older titles at the library or asking friends what they think I’d be interested in; it’s a tactic that’s helped me re-discover Tanith Lee and Angela Carter and discover that I actually really like titles by Stephen King and Clive Barker. I’m also a big fan of being a big mouth. I share my discoveries with my friends and readers alike,  and I’m becoming less afraid of debating the issue when it’s brought up.  If anything,  being able to write about this topic for Fandom Scene has helped me really dive in and realize that it isn’t a clear-cut issue or a new one. I’ve developed a huge respected for a lot of writers

And,  of course,  there’s the obvious: I try to take a hard look at all my chick characters and make sure they’re portrayed as people,  first. I’m not against love stories or sensual elements at all,  but I want it to work with my characters instead of becoming a device to sell them. And,  of course,  like I do with anything else I love,  I sing the praises of all the titles that have great female characters!

So what’s your favorite female character of all time? Which genre writers do you think really portray women really well and which not so much? What titles would you recommend?

And as always/ I can be found in the following places:

So How do I Critique? A guest post Shelly Goodman Wright

The Value of Peer Editing

As a writer, we all want to write something amazing.  We want the reader to fall into the world we created–to get lost in our creative mind, and to emerge with a hunger for more.  That is what every writer wants to accomplish, whether it’s to entertain or enlighten.

So how to do we get to that point?  How do we make this happen?

I’ve briefly mentioned a few idea’s in previous blogs @ www.shellygoodmanwright.com but I’d like to go into more detail about peer editing.  The one thing that continues to grow me as a writer is peer editing.

An article on the Guilford College website explains one of the benefits of peer editing:

“The individual editors get valuable editing practice, which enables them to edit their own work better in the future. One of the best ways to improve as a writer–other than through practice, practice, practice!–is by consciously using the criteria of excellent writing to make judgments about what is good in a piece of writing and what is not and then applying those criteria to one’s own work. Thus students in writing classes that employ peer editing regularly praise the practice highly, sometimes reporting it to be a class’s most useful aspect.”  (as sited on Guilford College web site:  http://www.guilford.edu/about_guilford)

Belonging to a fantastic writers group (coloradospringsfictionwritersgroup.org ), I could not agree more with the article, especially the underlined sentence above.  Go back and read it again.

What does it mean to us, personally?

Four years ago, when I finished the first draft of TWISTED ROOTS (then titled THE SWAMP), I passed it along to a few friends for feedback.  Although getting feedback on the general ‘idea’ of the novel was helpful, having friends tell you it’s good, it’s bad, or not there type of read, is not helpful.  What we need is someone to point out the tense shifts, inconsistent content, overused words and phrases, or weak characters or plots.  Our friends may buy the books we publish it, but if it’s sloppy and badly written, we’re not going to sell it to anyone else—nor will our friends recommends us.

Let’s say the writing/grammar is excellent, but our characters are weak or our plot is under developed.  Is that the impression we want to leave on the reader’s mind?  I can assuredly say they won’t be running down to Barnes and Noble to buy the next book.

Peer editing will not only bring out these flaws in our work, but we begin to see it in other writers work—the same mistakes.  I couldn’t see the mistakes in my own writing, until I started to edit others.  Now, not only do I have feedback written on my piece, but also I’ve learned something from the editing process, helping me become a stronger writer.

There can be a few pitfalls, so before doing the internet scan for peer editing groups, we all need to remember one thing—YOU ARE THE AUTHOR!  Not everyone’s feedback is helpful, and not everyone will agree with our critique of his/her work either.  That’s okay.  In my writing group, there are about ten of us.  Some of the critiques are very similar to each other, so then I know it’s a red flag to fix.  But occasionally one person might say something that no one else agrees with.  In the end, it’s our piece, our baby.  What I ask myself before I scrap a scene or begin to re-write: “Who is it I’m reaching too?  Am I missing my target audience?” and most importantly, “Do I agree with the suggestions?”  Nine times out of ten—for me–I enjoy the critiques that tear my writing apart.

So How Do I Critique?

I’ve had readers tell me that they don’t know how to critique.  They feel inadequate and “not the best person to give you a critique”.  But, I bet you if you asked them about the worst book they ever read, they could ramble off a list.  Maybe you’re one of those people and for a moment, I’m going to assume you are.  Here are some basic things I look for when I critique:

v  Read the entire piece to make sure you have a good idea of what the person submitted.  Make a mark on spots where the flow stops, or you got lost—but not much else yet.  Find the beat!

v  Start-off with the positive/strengths and give specifics.  Ex:  You liked the premise of the piece, strong characters, good descriptions, etc.

v  From here, you can either talk about the weakness of the piece—again being specific–or go right into the line editing.

v  Line Editing–Hopefully the piece submitted or exchanged is double-space with one and a half margin for adequate comments.  This is where you note grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure, below, above, or in the side margin.

v  Finish your critique again with something positive and encourage the writer.  They say half the battle in life, isn’t whether something is easy or hard, it’s your attitude about it.  Leave your writer with something they can hold on to, even if you hated it, without lying to them.  It does them no good for you to say you liked the story if you really didn’t.

These are just a few things I look for, but I do know there are other writers who critique as well and I would love to know your methods, or something I may have left out.  You can add your comments to my web site blog, www.shellygoodmanwright.com to share your strategies with other writers, including me.

Anyone can write and many do.  Unfortunately, in this self-publishing age, badly written books line the shelves everywhere we turn.  But in the end, the cream always rises to the top!

Join a group, strengthen your story, polish your writing skills, then head over to agentquery.com and begin the search to publication!

As always, I wish you the very best of luck and happy writing!

Mine has exactly 200 words, the word orange and ends with everything faded. To read other entries visit http://rachaelharrie.blogspot.com   I am #140

Death.

Shadows crept across the wall, in a flash they became dancing specks of orange.  The unwelcome morning arrived.

I scanned the room.  My kids were sprawled out on chairs.  When did they grow up?  My sister-in-law wriggled, pulling a blanket up over her head.

The baby purred softly in his pac-n-play, oblivious to the tragedy that struck his Daddy.

What a play on words.  David had been struck, beaten with a four foot  metal level and a baseball bat.  He had the claw end of a hammer slammed into the side of his head, repeatedly, chunks of DNA sailing through the air.

The doctor walked in causing us to struggle to sit up.  I did not want to hear what she had to say.  She was negative, unkind and she did not believe in miracles.  Her hair was unkept. We shook the sleep off.  She was old.  How long ago was she in medical school?  Neurology is so specialized.  She must be smart.  How sad to never have witnessed a miracle.

She spoke slowly, cold and methodically.  We strained to hear her muffled words.  The sobs started, slow then steady finally erupting into wails of denial.  Everything faded.

FRIDAY FRAGMENTS; THE CRAZED FANS and a WRITERS PLATFORM BUILDING CAMPAIGN…

There wasn’t enough room in the title for THE SCHEDULE.  I would be SO excited if I were close enough for you to come say hello.  It is strange for a few minutes when you meet a bloggy friend in person, for the first time and then that feeling passes and it is like finding your best oldest friend. I just love it!!  The schedule is down there at the bottom.

So Happy Friday in February everyone.  I love Fridays because I love Frioday Fragments, I adore Mrs. 4444 and all of my FF Friends.  Hop over and check it out.   http://www.halfpastkissintime.com

I also love the Blog Entourage and the Crazed Fans Weekend hop.  Stop over, there is some amazing stuff over there!  http://theblogentourage.blogspot.com

A few months ago my friend Vanessa from http://snowfortsandsandcastles.blogspot.com  Invited me to join the WRITERS PLATFORM BUILDING CAMPAIGN.  I could not believe the fun I had and the friends I made.  If you are interested there is still time to sign up, something to interest everyone and oh yes…prizes!!  Check it out here  http://rachaelharrie.blogspot.com  If you are stopping by from the campaign, great big waves to you:)

So I am still in denial about GFC going away.  Actually mine is MIA again now..jeeze..so annoying.  I really miss those faces:(  I am working on another way to stay in touch.

I am really enjoying being a published author.  And thank you all for hanging out with me and sharing the whole process.  Can you believe BRISTOL bOYZ STOMP is 3 months old already??  Please check out the reviews and the book trailers in the folders up top there.  I am thrilled at the views the trailer is getting.

If you have time could you go over to twitter and follow me.  I am in twitter jail and I need followers to get out. @doreenb8  THANK YOU!!

With all of the schedule stuff going on, still working a day job, writing a second and third book I have been missing my grand babies terribly.  I am going to have to go get my fix soon even if it is just some hugs and kisses.

I am off to the big old city tomorrow please say a prayer or wish me luck I am SO nervous.  They are calling for snow and oh my I hope people still come out:)

Has winter arrived in your town yet?  What are you doing for Valentines day?  Did you check out that schedule?  Are you close to any of those places??

Have a Blessed Weekend everyone!!
