Re: Member Announcements

So does that mean we're disbanding this group?  JP

Re: Member Announcements

Only if and when it happens. Knowing how slow things tend to go around here, it could be a while. I'm happy he changed his mind on this!

You have to add the file to a file hosting service that generates IMG code for you. Beyond that, I'm not sure how else to post images. Good luck!
Here you go!

Re: Member Announcements

Participated in Celebrate Literacy--The Magic of Books in Jackson, Mississippi today. Sold a few books, met our governor's wife, and even made a little blimp on the local news! Oh, and spoke briefly to a hopefully rising young film director about getting my Raiford Chronicles on film!

Re: Member Announcements

Hey Gracela, that's a good promo. Told just enough to intrigue!

Re: Member Announcements

Nice. Now teach me how to do one!

Re: Member Announcements

Janet:

It's very simple. I created it using Windows Movie Maker which is a free Windows Tool. The images of the girl with amber eyes (they're actually blue but because I turned them into black and white nobody can tell it)  weren't free--I purchased them at shutterstock.com,but you can  take your own pictures and then the cost would be zero. The rest of the pictures, I took them myself.  I only purchased one video clip at shutterstock.com and the rest I shot them myself.

The actors were my sis Fernanda and and her boyfriend. We actually had a lot of fun shooting the pictures and  the movie clips. After I had all the material, I invested one afternoon putting it together and synchronizing the music. Presto!

If you're really interested, I can show you how to do it.

Kiss,

Gacela

Re: Member Announcements

You can record a voice-over soundtrack. For example, a narrator, instead of adding tags as I did. I tried to do so but my voice sucks, or maybe it's because I don't have a good mic, but it's sounded soooo lame I decided not to do it.

Kiss,

Gacela

Book Baby, who Sol is partnering with, is advertising this writing contest that some members here may be interested in entering. It's not free, but it's not expensive either.
