I'm calling this chapter in my life "Bouncy Castles & Batman". Recently, I have been geared toward helping businesses stay in business, and have begun helping a company that rents inflatables. I will be continuing that soon and have been spreading the word about them while helping other potential clients. So, that's just one of several things I've been doing.
I also had a neat idea for physical marketing tools that I may announce after receiving more details from the patenting office. Along with that I have had several firsts and new experiences just in the past couple of weeks including being an extra in a Batman movie! This is a Harley Quinn fan film called The Devil's Daughter which I actually thought had wrapped up filming, but it was just slowed due to the pandemic. As soon as I heard they were looking for helped, I jumped on board! I haven't had this much fun in a long time, so definitely check them out on Facebook and their other social media sites to stay in the loop.
As far as Roseace and book news is concerned, our 50th video will be coming up soon, so I want to do something quite special and very different from before. I plan to record myself reading aloud the first scene in my book--maybe even the first chapter WITH VOICES! Many who have read the book have mentioned the first chapter does introduce many characters in a very short time. Well, welcome to my imagination. Just think how relieved I was to get them all out of my head for a change. Regardless, the opening chapter was meant to be a full-immersion sequence to really catch the reader off-guard.
I may have mentioned before, but there are too many tropes in western literature and the specific "way" to write, especially in fiction. But, I wanted a book that did not READ like a book but one that felt more like a movie or videogame. Ironically, I'll put books back on the shelf if they seem to read or feel like something I've read in the past, so I definitely wanted something loud even in the opening chapters. Most people who read my work have not been using voices either. Some have said, "Well, how am I supposed to know how they sound?" which is a good question. Look at the tone of the words, the body language (if written). Some scenes I literally had to act out to imbed more of what was going on rather than simply what was said. I hope that makes sense.
Anyways, thank you for reading and have a blessed day!
