In June, I went to Washington State to visit my daughter who was getting married. She was gracious enough to take time out from wedding prep to show me her bees, and how she does things for them. It was a really fun time and I learned a lot. Including the fact that I adore bees and pollinators of all kinds.

As a part of Cathy Jackson’s blog tour, I asked for her top ten list of YouTubers and Bloggers. Here is her list:

1. Brian K. Morris-Rising Tide Publications – NEVERMIND THE FURTHERMORE

Brian K Morris is a can’t-miss blogger and Writer. We discovered one another at a Convention and became fast friends. Mr. Morris is uplifting, encouraging, and always ready to help others. His gift of gab along with his sharp wit and immeasurable amount of knowledge draws the viewer into his broadcasts, welcoming them into the Rising Tide family.

2. Pyrocynical

Pyrocynical was, and still is, one of my daughter’s go-to YouTuber. When she introduced me to his YouTube channel, I was hooked. He’s relevant, fun, and great to listen to.

3. Good Mythical Morning

Rhett & Link are two funny guys who always bring something new and creative to their broadcasts. Good Mythical Morning is an American comedy, talk and variety YouTube series I enjoy almost every morning.

4. Matthias

My daughter found Mattias on YouTube a few years ago and introduced him and his wife, Amanda, to our family. The couple was and continues to be, quirky and fun. His channel originally started with him and Amanda, but has gone through many changes. The latest About for Matthias’s channel reads: “Follow a band of YouTubers who found a key that unlocked a hidden world right inside their own studio.”

5. The Legend of the Traveling TARDIS

Official YouTube channel of The Legend of the Traveling TARDIS. Keep up on all things Doctor Who. New Who, Old Who, this channel has it all. The conversations are always lively and enlightening.

6. Writing with Jenna Moreci

I discovered Jenna Moreci a couple of years ago, and she is exciting! Jenna is also a Writer and makes videos about writing books. She’s “super interesting.” If one is looking for any information about their writing, check out Writing with Jenna Moreci. She has vlogged about many topics concerning novels.

7. Video Influencers

Ever wondered how to start your own YouTube channel? Want to grow the one you already have? What about monetization? If you have a question about YouTube, Video Influencers probably have the answer you seek. Learn their secrets, mindset, tips and best advice. Real talk with real Video Influencers. This is a great channel to get advice on all things YouTube channel related.

8. Russxplode Studios

I was asked to be a Guest on Russxplode Studios in March of 2021, and had a great time chatting with Russell Allen. Russxplode Studios: Books with heart’s YouTube channel have live videos and prior videos relating to his upcoming books and artist interviews.

9. Jamie Oliver

Jamie Oliver features beautiful recipes, expert tutorials, fresh talent, wonderful food and funny videos every week plus loads of your other favorite YouTubers dropping by. I’m not sure how I discovered this channel, but am glad I did. His cookbook, 5 Ingredients: Quick & Easy Food sits on our counter, and we prepare a meal from it at least once a week. His videos are entertaining, educational, and inspire us to cook together as a family.

10. WhatTravisSays

Blogger. WhatTravisSays was discovered in our house during the David Tennant/Matt Smith era of Doctor Who. We continued watching him together through Peter Capaldi’s run, and WhatTravisSays had lots of facts to keep us invested in his work. WhatTravisSays still uploads short, relevant videos to keep one entertained.

ABOUT THE BOOK

jackson

Book Synopsis Min Eurozan:

I am no longer on Earth, nor any other place I know.

I have scant memory of how or why I came to be here.

Time continues to ebb and flow with my memories and the strange, seductive men who inhabit them.

The only constant is Love.

One owns my Body, he equally possesses and protects me.

One holds my Heart, wanting me as his friend and lover.

One challenges my Mind, he’s captured me with his patient intellect.

One completes my Soul, our love is the deepest and most pure.

One heats my Blood, bringing with him fire and need.

I love them all, and I love them as One.

Why You’re Not Getting Book Sales

Why you’re not getting book sales

Today, let’s chat about book sales and the lack of results…the sales you’re NOT getting.

So, say you wanted to excel as a writer in any genre, but you didn’t know how. Could you do it?

In this video, we’re going to talk about how some writers struggle with finding their sweet spot.

You know what? When you just get started as an author, when you launch your very first book–when you first begin on the publishing journey–it’s exciting and fun and just the thought of readers enjoying your book and going to book events and signing your books for adoring fans, and oh yeah, ALL THAT MONEY you make on doing something you really love to do, it is FANTASTIC!

And certainly, if I can do it, you can do it.

But just because I can and have (13 books so far)-doesn’t mean you can repeat and rinse and come out with the same book sales.

So, to find out more about my thoughts on this subject and also see some fun video of a day at the farmer’s market near my home, check out the YouTube channel video above. If you like it, please consider subscribing.

Positive affirmations for writers

Let’s get POSITIVE!

Positive affirmations. Ah, yes.

Have you ever thought about how much negative self-talk you produce every day? I didn’t either until recently when I found a fellow online that really impressed me with his affirmation ideas. This got me to thinking… and I decided that everyone INCLUDING WRITERS needs positive reinforcements.

So, this week’s video is all about positive affirmations for writers. That’s all writers, young, old, and in-between.

Many people have wonderful positive affirmations like I am beautiful, I am peaceful, I am joyful. But I wanted to say things like, I am a writer. Because sometimes we just need to hear that.

I have put together this little video with voiceover speaking positivity into your ear. I hope it is something that benefits you in the days to come. If you ever need someone to just talk to about writing, well, I am always listening.

Please consider liking, sharing, and subscribing to the Writer Groupie channel over on YouTube. I would love to have you as a fan and follower.

Writer Groupie is also on iTunes if you are a podcast listener. Sometimes it is about writing, sometimes it is about writing mindset. If that sound like something you would be interested in, would you consider adding the podcast to your favs?
