I knew if I mentioned my flash player problem someone would have the answer. Many thanks to the brilliant Jhan who advised me to install an earlier version of Flash. I had actually thought of this, but I had no clue where to find older versions of software. Jhan had the answer to that too. She's a genius!
I can see my videos now. Woo hoo!! The first video I played was Adele, Rolling in the Deep. I love her bluesy voice.
I'm getting excited about Monday. That's the day Gwen Gardner and I kick off our Indies 4 Hire Facebook event. Gwen is an old hand at this but I'm an event virgin. (Oh, that sounds awful. LOL.) But it's true. Gwen tells me what to do and I do it.
We have several topics we want to bring up for discussion. But you're also welcome to bring your own topics and questions.
The event lasts a whole week and we'll have different things to talk about every day. Even though we're calling this an Indie Event, we'll be covering things that affect all writers, so don't let the name fool you.
This post kind of segues nicely with the gist of what Indies 4 Hire is about. While it's a showcase for the work Gwen and I do, the event itself is about community and sharing information. The business world calls it networking, but I prefer to call it good karma. It's a give and take, ideally giving more than taking.
This is why I wrote Self-Publisher's Punch List. I could've charged for it, but this is my contribution to my community and to those I have yet to meet.
The advanced reading copy of Self-Publisher's Punch List is available by email. Contact me and I'll be glad to send it to you. Just put "Punch List" in the subject line so it doesn't fall into the spam bucket.
On a personal note: Tank is looking frail. He's in excellent spirits and his tumors have gone down considerably, thanks in part, to the high protein/high fat diet he's on. But he is leaner than I'd like him to be and he doesn't want to play with Iko as often.
Nonetheless, he is one happy dog, living life to the fullest.
Sometimes you have to do the best with whatever life deals you. Tank taught me that. He's a very smart dog.
Photo: It's a weird perspective but I liked how cute his face looked.
Are you coming to our Facebook event next week? Say you will. It'll give us a chance to mingle and talk shop. It's on all week so you can pop in anytime.
Addendum: If Blogger won't allow you to leave a comment, would you email me and let me know which browser you're using? Firefox is preventing me from commenting on my own blog. (I have to use Chrome or IE.)
I'm trying to track down if it's an issue with Blogger or Firefox. Thanks!
