The New 3rd Video on the FIA youtube channel– almost done!

What I’ve heard from a few places is that it takes three vids on a channel for it to become searchable– that is, findable by entering search terms. (“Findable” is now a word, btw. 😉 So this is the third one. It should be up in the next couple of days. There will also be another version of the same video that isn’t related to fanfic or D/G (it takes a very different turn right after all the cats. Why are there so many cats in a D/G video? You’ll just have to see.) My sister immediately screeched “this one will go viral!” right after seeing it. Well, tons of cats are involved, and seeing as how there are over 40 million cat videos on YTR (not kidding, really not kidding about that one), the presence of as many cats as possible always helps. In totally unrelated news, I’m planning to get a new kitten on Monday. 🙂

And here’s a screenshot of the original After Effects project, the source material for the final video. Just so y’all know how INCREDIBLY hard I work on this!!! And it’s all for you! 🙂

a.)Few indie authors are using it
b.) Of those authors who do use it, most aren’t really doing it very well at all
c.) People will flock to it because it’s fun and interesting in and of itself.

and

d.) It requires a very, very short time commitment on the viewer’s part.

All of this = an extremely good way to publicize your book.
