(You can read my previous posts about my experience with the Kindle Scout program by clicking on Part 1,Part 2, Part 3 and Part 4.)
Do your characters keep you awake at nights?
First, they wanted to be Kindle Scout winners…
Now they want to be video stars.
And it’s all Cinderella’s fault.
Cindy had so much fun at the ball and then meeting the queen and getting her picture taken everywhere she went, she didn’t want to give it up and spend her days sitting in the castle watching old movies.
So she riled up the characters in my Kindle Scout winner, LOVE ME FOREVER, and convinced them they could be stars.
Cindy went Hollywood on me.
She’s now producing a bunch of short videos with highlights from LOVE ME FOREVER and yes, she even convinced me to do the voiceovers.
How could I refuse? You want to shout your book to the rooftops and do your very best to promote it, so I’ve been slaving behind a hot microphone, and guess what, I’ve got some videos for you.
So what’s the next step in the Kindle Scout experience? I’ve received tons of support from other Kindle Scout winners with retweeting, blogging, YouTubing, etc. It’s been an extraordinary experience, kinda like joining a sorority or fraternity. A sense of having each other’s back and always being there if someone has a question.
