January 1st through 4th Blog Hop Contemporary Romance and Please Vote

Don’t You love winning?

Hope everyone wins something. January 1st is also release day of my Valentine’s Novella. Woot, woot. Keep reading to see everything and find out how to win an amazon ebook of this!!

Last New Years, I made a deal with myself, I’d publish. I intended to sell novels. And I made it a mission in 2012 to accomplish what I set out to do. Now that 2013 is about to commence, I’m both grateful for accomplishing most of my 2012 goals and now setting the 2013 goals, which are now more extensive.

Let’s see. I have my new 2013 publishing goals ready to go. These are part of the next stage in the five year plan, and next year I will hopefully post how successful I made this out to be.

Personal stuff for 2013 is harder to put my effort into and accomplish. But why not, it’s on the list and a girl can always hope… never lose faith. When the time is right, things will happen there too.

And in the meantime, it’s write, write, write for 2013.

I hope whoever is reading this health, prosperity and love in the upcoming cycle. Happy New Year!!!

Here is my dilemma. I used to rock out making fan vids back in the day. Now it’s for commercial purposes and different. I don’t have video of people moving around anymore.

Do you prefer ones that you read along with or ones with voice overs? These are both short!!! Less then 30 seconds each, so no worries on time commitment.

This one is me doing a voice over

This one is with words

Should I be doing voice overs?

Now for my prize. Returning for Valentine’s is the novella I’m having you watch the vids for. One lucky winner will receive a Kindle edition of this book. How?  Please tell me which video you prefer. 

Please if you have a fun story to share on New Years or Valentine’s, I do love the holiday that celebrates a great emotion.

  1. Here’s my two cents on the videos:

    I prefer the one with the voice-over, but don’t overdo the fade-in effects for the videos.

    If you decide to go with the text-only version, probably change the font color, style and layout for better typography.

    Happy new year 🙂

  2. Um… yes you most def be doing voice overs!!! I liked it sooo much better. The only thing, make your voice louder. The music was louder than your voice and they should be equal in volume. Right? But I loved the voice over!

  3. Thanks so much for a great beginning to a New Year. I love your voice~ Since you asked, I think the video works better with the words… Congrats and good luck <3


  4. The music was a bit loud for the voice over but I really preferred that one 🙂 Go for it!

    Thanks for the chance and happy new year!

  6. It was a tiny bit hard to hear your voice, because the music was so load. So if you toned down the music I would like that one the best.

  7. I like the one with words, however…..The words need to be darker & last just a couple seconds longer so you can read them completly.
    If you do the voice one…..I really couldn’t hear you. The music covered your words.
    Its up to you Darlin’ They were both great though 😀
    Happy New Year & good luck with your trailer 😀

  10. I like the one with the words best. Not sure about the music, but that’s just my personal opinion.

  11. I like the one with words since I am usually around people when I am on the computer and the voices are distracting to others.
    Happy New Year!

  12. My goal for 2013 is to be more active. I didn’t follow through on my 2012’s.

  13. I preferred the voice-over. It still needs a bit of tweaking as others have already commented but it made me want to read it!
    Thanks for doing the hop!! You are one of the new authors I found to stalk…um follow on Goodreads!!


  14. As I am Deaf, the words work best for me. Like it!

    I don’t have a funny story. With 5 kids, going out is a premium and I don’t want to spend it battling everyone else out. The only thing that did happen is when my husband took me out for dinner for my birthday. He had saved up for about 6 months as we are on a tight budget. We went to Red Lobster for an early dinner as it gets very busy. We were seated near the back and told our waiter would be with us. My husband and I talked and laughed and reconnected. It was wonderful. We weren’t really paying any attention to anyone else. A waiter came frantically over and began apologizing. The had forgotten about us and we had been sitting there for about 45 minutes. We didn’t even notice the time pass. They were so wonderful to us. We got our meal, including a dessert, for free. What a wonderful birthday I had. I even ended up with an outfit by the end of the night.

  16. I preferred the one with the voice over, but the volume of the music needs to be adjusted down a bit. Happy New Year, and thank you so much for participating in this hop!
