Video Summary: Writer Gaming and All About the Reading Tag

What videos did I put up this week? I have two for you!

I was tagged to do the “All About the Reading” tag, which was very fun. What do I hate in a book? When I read, do I care most about characters, plots, or a beautiful writing style? What about a favorite quote? All those questions and more are answered in this video!

As you probably already saw all over my social media, I’m so excited to have worked out the issues I was having with recording my gaming, and now the first ever episode of my Writer Gaming series is up. Thus begins our adventure into American McGee’s Alice and our discussions about dark books, writing, and all things Alice!

Anatomy of a Darkened Heart’s First Video Review!

I got my very first video review from fantastic horror author Rocky Rochford! My favorite suite of his works is the Don’t Turn Around trilogy, which can be found on Amazon as Wait and Bleed. Rocky also writes poetry, romance, and…well, just about everything! He’s quite a dark horse.

Special thanks to Rocky, of course, who read Anatomy of a Darkened Heart twice before giving it 5 stars and publishing his video review!

NEW Writer’s Takeaway Series on YouTube

Exciting news: I’m starting a new series on my YouTube channel called Writer’s Takeaway, and the first video is already up! In each episode, I’ll talk about what writers can learn from reading any particular book, fiction or nonfiction, that I have recently finished. The takeaway can be anything from writing style tips to dialogue technique to plot tightening, any number of “how to” subjects, etc. I’d love for you to join me and share what you’ve learned from these books!

Check out the first episode:

BOOKTUBE: Brutal Youth Review

I have made my first foray into Booktube! Check out my video review of Anthony Breznican’s Brutal Youth, a fiction book on teenage bullying from all angles. Let me know if you’ve read this book and what you think of it. I gave it 4 stars and would recommend it.
