Raving Introvert Reporting for Duty
My love for books, appreciation for the power of the written word, and commitment to share that message with the world whether readers choose my books or yours propels me forward each episode. The marketing companies pretending that video is a better and more beneficial medium for consuming information used to upset me. Truth of the matter is that all communication mediums have their place. While I wanted to remain in the shadows and stay off the screen the power of video and accessibility provided by technology makes the benefits outweigh the discomfort of shedding the shroud of anonymity my blog, apps, and books afford me.
Make no mistake about the reason for producing and broadcasting TSC Reads. I'm here for the books, the whole books, and nothing but the books. Years ago I read an article which stated the winner in the new digital world of self publishing would be service providers able to sell dreams to authors anxious to see their work "published". What turned my stomach then and continued to grow as I pulled back from publishing to put my life back together after divorce was watching that prediction unfold.
Instead of running from the publishing world, I continued to write as my royalties changed. Through a divorce, professional career rebirth, and technological revolution. My resolve to do everything in my power to provide authors with an a space to share their books with world. You have to find your reason for being out in the Wild Wild World of publishing today. My day job pays my bills and frees me to write for the pure love of the word.
I've listed several articles and videos on overcoming fear of being on camera for whatever reason you avoid the front side of the lens. For me, my appreciation for the life-saving impact of books on my life is enough to shun my avoidance of the camera I've mastered all of my life and face the world. I read my way through hell as a child. So I'm committed to making sure those who read whether for inspiration, education, entertainment, escape or survival are able to find as many books as they can wherever they look for them... even if that place is Facebook pages, YouTube videos, or Instagram. I know my why for getting in front of the camera and overcoming CameraShyNesia... hopefully in the resources below you'll find yours.
