Help welcome a “Little Prince” and enjoy my video

He’s here!

A Reluctant Little Prince has arrived in e-book and soon the hard copy will be available.

I did a little promo using PowerPoint. Since this is all very new to me, the video thing, I’ve added reading links at the bottom of this post from other writers. I will probably play around with other programs, when I have time. Best of plans….

I hope y’all enjoy my promo.

  1. I must be slow today, because I felt you might have given us more time to read the last frames when there was more text. But I love how you showed us what your book was all about and explained it, as well. Graphics came across very well, totally representing what I saw in the ebook itself. Great job, Jean. I’m (gulp) almost ready to try it myself.

  2. I like this idea of using Power Point to make a video. When I’m at my computer, I like my space quiet. Using Power Point gives me that silence without missing the video. I’m going to have to do some more research on this great idea.
