I have completed the interiors of 5 new children's books. Now it is on to the covers and trimming them up and getting them up on Kindle and Createspace. I also need to work on the social media and marketing side

I spoke today on the Independent Publishers of New England Tuesday Indie Office hours Hangout on how to make a quick promo video. It was a lot of fun. Below is the on the fly video that I made. It is a good example of why a tripod is super important with the video capture app I was using. It is called YouTube Capture App. YouTube put stabilization on the video with the result being the sides look totally crazy. The app is super easy to use but just lock your IPhone down.

Thank you Jeff, I like how you keep to the old school style of using a calculator! I use it inbuilt in the PC, but those gadgets really take me back!

I spoke today to the +Independent Publishers of New England, on producing simple book trailer videos. It was a lot of fun and I was able to share some of what I have learned about producing videos
 
Drop-In, Share & Network!

Drop by to share your experiences and learn from others about independent publishing. If you have a topic you'd like to focus on, post that and we'll take it up first.

A few minutes before noon eastern time, we'll post the link to join the panel, and we can take up to 10 participants.

We'll start the broadcast at 12 pm; so please notify us in the event page comments if you join late and would like to participate on the panel. We go for 30 minutes, unless there is a burning desire to continue with a subject.  

One of our guests is +bruce jones, a published author with books in music education, geography, video, business education, children's and adult coloring. His list includes 26 books on CreateSpace and other platforms. Most recently, we came across a unique approach to book trailers that Bruce developed using  a smartphone, video editing app, and YouTube. While this approach may not be for everyone, as a speaker said at the +Independent Publishers of New England conference on April 5: "It's better to have a quick 'n dirty book trailer up that none at all."
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Charlotte Pierce. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Thanks for opening our eyes to your easy approach to book trailers, +bruce jones. Makes perfect sense, using  iPhone, YouTube video editing and annotations, and broadcasting to social media platforms. Just do it!

Starting to work on pulling together some of my book info into a publishing course. Question? What part of the book publishing process do you want to know about?
- Writing and Editing?
- Design interior and cover?
- Production?
- e-book/Kindle?
- Paperback/CreateSpace/Amazon?
- Book marketing
