Updating Book Videos

I thought it long overdue to update the two book videos  I have over at YouTube. Some people call these book trailers, but the last time I checked, that is a trademarked term. It is like calling all tissues Kleenex, even if the brand you are using is not Kleenex.

But I digress…

The book video for Coulson’s Lessons (written under my Anna J. McIntyre pen name) was made so long ago, it had its original title, Lessons. But I have long since rebranded that book—and instead of a standalone, it is now book 3 in the Coulson Family Saga series. Of course, it can still be read as a standalone.

The other video I updated was Haunting Danielle, adding the most recent titles to the video. It wont be necessary to remake the video at a future date to add more titles, as the credits rolling at the end of the film let viewers know there are probably more titles than the ones listed.

If you have time to check them out, I would appreciate a thumbs up if you like them—and I hope you consider subscribing to my channel. I am still pondering doing more over there.

But for now, off to work on The Ghost and the Silver Scream.

Gosh I loathe scammers and spammers…


I set up the Watch Book Video website to give authors a place to post links to their book videos. I figured it would be fun for visitors to the site to be able to browse through the videos, perhaps find a few new books to read.

It’s relatively easy for an author to add their video to the site. First they select their book’s genre from the top menu, and then leave a comment on the genre page –including the author’s name, book title, and a link to the book video.

Initially I deselected the option to review the comments—that way the video links would show up immediately. Tonight I had to re-select that option, because of the ridiculous amount of spam littering up the comment sections—a place for book videos, not a place for someone to pitch their wares.

I guess it is time for me to add more hoops for posters to jump through, because it’s obvious the random and numerous off-topic comments I’m getting are from some energetic bot. I’d like to squish the bot and its creator.
