My visit on the Horrorist Podcast

300x300_12283145I had so much fun being a guest on the Horrorist Podcast.  We talked about all those scary things that go bump in the night, and of course, my books.  It was a fun interview and I look forward to having him join us on the Deadly Reads Radio podcast later this month for Halloween.

Get ready for some crazy conversation where you’ll get a chance to learn about all the paranormal experiences I’ve had in my life.  I feel the hairs standing on the back of my neck already.  I do want to tell you that my voice sounds horrible the first couple of minutes because I forgot to pull my mic to my mouth.  LOL

Facebook Cover Videos

I know this post is late, but I was up until 3 am working on my exciting new project.  It took extra cups of coffee to get my brain-fog cleared up enough so I could write this post. LOL

Well, I did it. I decided to make a Facebook Page cover video.  Why did I decide to make a cover video for my Facebook Author page?  I have no idea other than the crazy idea popped into my head and wouldn’t leave. LOL

Now, I’m not saying I haven’t made other little videos such as book trailers, and YouTube videos.  I just wasn’t sure how to make one good enough to put on my Facebook Author Page.   I’ve seen a handful of them on those pages run by those crazed business entrepreneurs.  You know the ones I’m talking about; those flashy, modern, and eye-catching videos that blaze across their Facebook Page.

Not sure if that style fits my strange personality, I decided just to jump in and see with develops.  First thing I did was head straight over to Google and find information on how to make a Facebook Cover Video.  Of course, I found several apps that could help me make the perfect cover video (those were their words, not mine) however, there was a problem. NONE of them were completely free to use.  Each had some sort of strings attached to use their video making app.

Not the type to surrender at the first hurdle, I pressed onward. Then it hit me like a ton of bricks… I have Movie Maker on my computer!  After hitting a few keys on my trusty laptop, I had found a couple of articles explaining how I could make my AWESOME and FUN cover video for my Facebook Page. Life was good again!! LOL

Then the real work began… what did I want the cover video to say?  Sheez, I knew there would be a catch to this project.  Did I want a serious, all business cover video?  Or, did I want one that was a bit quirky… just like me?  Refusing to be anything other than myself, I knew how I would make my cover video.  It would be fun and with my crazy personality.  Yep, it would be just like me.

I’ve never been one to take myself too seriously.  Heck, I’m the first one to laugh at myself.  I know I’m a bit off and I don’t care if people like or dislike me.  I’m just me.  Nothing more, nothing less.  So, after a good, strong adult beverage my quest to create the PERFECT Facebook Page Cover Video commenced.  After finding what I believed was the perfect music that has my crazy attitude and putting together some fun images, my video was ready to share with the world.

I’m glad I decided to make a cover video for my Author page.  Heck, I may even use it on other social media I use. teehee

I invite you to go check out my cover video, and while you’re there if you don’t mind would you give my page a like?  Be sure the volume is on at the bottom lefthand corner of the video screen.
