Youtube & Writers

I want to talk about Youtube. I have a Youtube channel to make funny videos and post my video book reviews. I’m always going back and forth in my mind on whether as a writer, a reader and an author is there more that I can do with Youtube.

I always watch people who have talents in cooking, singing, dancing etc that are more visual than writing and I get envious. People with those talents can quickly share their work on instagram, vine, youtube and more without getting people clicking off. I feel like writing something and reading it via Youtube people may be bored by that.

I want to give Youtube writing a try. It won’t be like Instagram writing where people post a chapter of a story with every picture they post. I think I want to talk more about all the ideas that come in my head, writing industry stuff, help promote other writers and more things along those lines.

As a self-published author of 14 books and still being very young, I think that I have a lot that I can share as well as learn from everyone out there. I just want to find ways to connect with other writers, authors and readers.

Any thoughts? I’d love to hear them.

The Last Seal BOOK REVIEW

The Last Seal by Richard Denning

5 out of 5 read rating

A powerful demon has been trapped under the city of London for over 300 years. Now, however, malevolent forces are at work in the 17th century, planning to unleash terror and chaos on the world. Two rival secret societies the Liberati and the Praesidum – are caught in a battle that threatens to destroy the city and its unknowing inhabitants.

When a truant schoolboy, Ben, finds a scroll revealing the location of magical seals that bind the demon, this throws him into the centre of a dangerous plot that leads to the Great Fire of London. Ben must overcome his own problems – fear of failure, desire for revenge, guilt over his parents deaths – if he is to protect the city, and confront the evil demon.

As the plot unfolds, a little more of the mystery about Ben s own past and his parents deaths is made known. Ultimately, Ben and his friends must combat sorcery, defeat the evil Liberati and destroy the demon if they are to save their city and themselves.

13 Things About Pacific Rim

1. Pacific Rim is perfectly amazing.

2. Pacific Rim gets right into the heart of the story.

3. The cast was picked perfectly for each part.

4. Kajiu (giant monsters) were scary and big and awesome

5. Jaegers (giant robots) were massive and kickass

6. The music wasn’t the normal Transformers/ Inception music.

7. As a person that loves It’s Always Sunny I was happy to see Charlie Day. (he was also so perfectly picked)

8. Ron Perlman…enough said.

9. Idris Elba…enough said.

10. Kickass female character that doesn’t have to use sex to be kickass

11. Totally unpredictable and many times you find yourself asking how are they going to get themselves out

of this one.

12. We are very far into the future in this movie and yet, there’s still paper & chalkboards being used.

13. This was a really fast placed movie that had so much detail. It all goes by so quickly. I feel like this could have been a trilogy because there’s a lot that could be further explained or we could have a deeper understanding of characters. I say this all as an author and not a screenwriter. I did find out that there is a prequel graphic novel that is supposed to explain more of the details for anyone that wants more. LOL

Enjoy!
