Book Trailer Tuesday

11 Feb

As many of you know, I signed The Timely Death Trilogy with AEC Stellar Publishing, Inc., and I’m excited to announce that we are starting “Book Trailer Tuesday.” Starting today, my publisher will be releasing book trailers every other Tuesday on their YouTube channel, and today they are featuring the first novel they published – Minutes Before Sunset (book 1 of The Timely Death Trilogy.) If you subscribe to the YouTube channel linked above, you will get to watch all the future videos as they release. I’ve read all of the novels, and I really enjoyed them, so I hope you subscribe in order to watch the other ones as well.

In the meantime, please check out the trailer for Minutes Before Sunset, and help me spread the word: (Your support means a lot to me – as always!) 

I hope you’ll consider checking out this paranormal romance for your Valentine’s Day reading list. 

Thank you for your support.

SS: Dragon Speak

30 Dec

Watch my video to begin this post via this link: Dragon Dictate for Mac. If the link doesn’t work, or you don’t want to watch the video, what I said is typed below, so enjoy my review of Dragon Speak! (And work with me, because I’m technologically challenged, and I had to get Dragon Speak, Photo Booth, and Microsoft synced.)

Using Dragon Dictate.

“Hey, everyone! It’s Shannon.

I was just making this video (for the first time, so you get to hear my voice) to review Dragon Dictate for Mac, which is a voice recognition software, in which it turns your voice and what you have to say into text for you.

So far, although the download took me a long time, I’ve really enjoyed the product. I found it very effective, and it works with most accents. My dad also used it, and it works really well. I haven’t, however, used the punctuation aspect, so I will be editing the text (which is below) I’ve added so you can read along and see how it does, and I will review once I get used to the punctuation aspect of this product.nc_025638

So far, I think it’s great. I think it’s very effective. I’m really glad I got this product, and I’m hoping to show it to my friends, so they can also use it for essays in school or personal writing like I’m going to use it for.

I also wanted to thank you all so much for following me on Twitter, my blog, sending me emails, and supporting my dream as much as I’m trying to support everybody else’s.

I think passion is very important. It is wonderful to share an English-based passion or reading-based passion—writing, art, anything—with anyone in this world, because I think the point of living is passion and celebrating your passion but also supporting other people’s passions, so thank you very much, sincerely, that you’ve helped me with mine, because you guys keep me going every day, and I love sharing these things with you.

I will be sharing more of Dragon Dictate and other products as I come across them, and I hope you guys are having a great holiday. I hope whatever you celebrate—Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanza—that it’s going great, that your family is healthy and well, that your pets are happy and spoiled, and your kids are just the same, and, you know, maybe you also got Dragon Dictate.

Let me know how you’re using it. If there’s any shortcuts that don’t know about, I’d really appreciate it—so happy holidays, happy new year, and I’ll be sure to make a new video in the future, so—

Thanks! Bye!”
