A couple of weeks ago I attended a live webinar (provided by SavvyAuthors) with two authors I absolutely love - Larissa Ione and debut author Virna DePaul (Yes, it's possible to love an author's style after only one book!) Both authors gave wonderful advice for up coming writers as well as already published authors. They spoke about how important it is to never give up. And they both fessed up on the secret to writing...To Sit Down And WRITE!
Yeah, makes since in hindsight. Seriously!
When I first started out I never grasped that I would actually have to sit down and write the book. I thought I needed to discover the secret formula all these cool authors had found and hidden well. It was a hard lesson, but almost two years later and one finished manuscript I have learned me lesson. There is MOST DEFINITELY no secret formula for writing a book!
Before this webinar with these to wonderful ladies and authors, I was embarrassed by my daily word count. Not any more! I can't tell you how relieved I was when I heard that Larissa Ione can only manage about twelve hundred words a day. WHEW! Makes me feel so much better and more confident, because I share the same word count as a best selling author! Virna DePaul made me realize as she spoke of her own writing schedule, that just because you are a full time writer doesn't mean you are obligated to sit and write each minute of every day. She was very thorough in explaining that it is alright to allow yourself the necessary breaks in order to refresh your mind and body.
Both authors were very helpful in centering my wondering writers mind. their advice grounded me back in what is important to me, my writing. I am very grateful to them for taking the time out of their busy schedules to extend a helping hand to those still trying to figure out the ropes of the writing world.
During the webinar the attendees were treated to the book trailers of both Larissa Ione and Virna Depaul. I was blown away! They were both awesome with acoustic sound and HD imagery. For this reason I am going to share both videos here today. Below you will find Virna DePauls's book flick for her debut release Chosen By Blood and the book flick for Larissa Ione's Eternal Rider - book one of her newest series, Lords of Deliverance. You can find all the details about the each book below the flicks...ENJOY!
CHOSEN BY BLOOD
Chosen By Blood
Five years after the Second Civil War ends, humans and otherborn— humanlike creatures with superhuman DNA—still struggle for peace. To ensure the continued rights of both, the FBI forms a Para-Ops team with a unique set of skills.
CHOSEN BY BLOOD
Leader of an Otherborn clan, half-breed vampire Knox Devereaux would do anything to find a cure for the anti-vamp vaccine slowly starving his people into extinction. When the FBI contacts him about leading a team of hand-selected Others on a mission to reclaim the stolen antidote, Knox accepts. His new assignment places him in direct contact with Special Agent Felicia Locke, the beautiful human he’s craved since their very first meeting.
They are here. They ride. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
His name is Ares, and the fate of mankind rests on his powerful shoulders. If he falls to the forces of evil, the world falls too. As one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, he is far stronger than any mortal, but even he cannot fight his destiny forever. Not when his own brother plots against him.
Yet there is one last hope. Gifted in a way other humans can't-or won't-understand, Cara Thornhart is the key to both this Horseman's safety and his doom. But involving Cara will prove treacherous, even beyond the maddening, dangerous desire that seizes them the moment they meet. For staving off eternal darkness could have a staggering cost: Cara's life.
Thanks for stopping in this evening and spending some time with me. Do you have any book flicks that you would like to share? I do have to say not only was todays book flick fabulous, but the covers for both books are simply divine!
Until next time...Happy Reading!!!
