VIDEO PITCH for Pagan Flames, Novel by Vanayssa Somers

Watch the Video Pitch for PAGAN FLAMES:

BUY this book on Amazon:
http://www.amazon.ca/Pagan-Flames-Vanayssa-Somers-ebook/dp/B00OSP04O0

Get to know writer Vanayssa Somers:

1. What is your story about?

Arch-Wizard Faery Prince recruits an under-confident young orphan
girl for training in Shapeshifting, Time Travel, Quantum Mastery, all
to turn her into a super-hero who travels through time, saving lives
and bringing evil to its knees.

2. Why should people know about yourself and your story?

This story, in large part, is based on a past life reading I gave once to a
young woman several years ago. I never forgot the reading, it was so unusual
and vivid. This young woman had been a psychic master of some sort in a past
life and was able to shape shift…take on the form of animals at will,
including eagles and wolves. I had been giving past life readings for years
but had never experienced a channeling at all like this one. I never forgot
it. Always wanted to write about it, and about an imaginary girl like her.
That book is PAGAN FLAMES. Of course, the personal details of the actual
reading are sacred and are not included in the book. But the shapeshifting
was the most wonderful thing to channel, unforgettable.

3. How long have you been writing stories?

Since I was a small child, but writing professionally, just about five
years. Solstice Publishing gave me a chance, took Pagan Flames. So thrilling
to get that first contract. Only a year ago, that happened. The book had sat
under my bed for about three years, I’d given up.

4. What movie have you seen the most in your life?

“How to Train Your Dragon I” and also “You’ve Got Mail.”

5. Who would you like to collaborate with on a creative project?

Steven Spielberg. But I don’t know much about Hollywood and its major
personas. I just know his name like everyone knows his name.

6. How many stories/screenplays have you written?

I have written about a dozen stories. Full length novellas, two and another
in progress.

7. What motivated you to write this story?

As mentioned above in question #2, I had a personal experience with
channeling a past life to a young woman a few years ago and being able to
take on animal form at will was part of that reading. It was something I
never forgot, very vivid and exciting to channel this information for her.

8. Describe your process; do you have a set routine, method for writing?

Well, I get an idea, as I suppose all authors do. I get that little excited
feeling in the core of my body and my brain starts tearing along behind my
nervous system. The excitement builds, if I am sitting getting my hair done,
or on a bus or something, and I start thinking how I could write about it.
Then I sit down soon as I get home at my computer and pound out a few lines
so I make sure I remember what I thought about. Then next day or so, I spend
some time fiddling around with it at the computer. It kind of slowly knits
together, then some of it doesn’t work or it is too complicated and over a
period of months I pull a decent story together. But all ideas an author has
only suit a certain niche of the population, of course.

9. Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Animal protection. Trees and having nature kept in a town building program,
so there are always trees everywhere, no matter what kind of building
project is going on. What a difference it makes to a community. Incredible,
especially in this time of climate change when everyone is too hot and
looking for shade. Cut down all the trees, guess what…no shade. Worst
thing. Heat is a killer. Animals, trees, local newspapers (very important to
support your local paper), and fitness. I love working out.

10. What influenced you to have your story made into a video pitch?

I stumbled into this website called WildSound. I didn’t know what it was. I
saw it was an opportunity to put my books out there and I read the blurb on
the site and decided to have a shot. It feels like fun, very positive.

11. Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers?

Well, never give up never give up. Take James Patterson’s Masterclass, 22
videos in which he teaches you details about how to write and stuff. Very
personal, very relaxing, not stressful at all and it makes you really
rethink your books. And it’s only ninety bucks U.S. A real deal. Jump at it.
I once listened to a radio show where Hammond Innes was being interviewed,
he used to be a very popular writer years ago, male-type action adventure
books, I am a woman but I loved his books. Esp Wreck of the Mary Deare. Love
that book. Anyway, he said one thing I never forgot: He said he has always
taken every single writing course he ever ran across. He still took them.
Still learning how to write, still humble after such big success. Well, his
books now have very old fashioned morals and values, you wouldn’t read some
of that these days. Men were men etc. But the adventures were wonderful. You
can still get his books on Amazon.

VIDEO PITCH for The Whistle Blower’s Confession, by Jennifer Lang

Watch VIDEO PITCH for The Whistle Blower’s Confession:

For more information, go to: http://thewbconfession.com

Or, buy the book on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/The-Whistle-Blowers-Confession-Jennifer-Lang/dp/1634490533

Get to know writer Jennifer Lang:

1. What is your story about?

The Whistle-Blower’s Confession is about an investigative reporter named Kelley Anderson, who after the death of her aunt to cancer, sees a news report on TV that discusses how cancer, autism, obesity, diabetes are all up more and more every year. And rather than just accept it, she starts to question why. She starts to investigate and the more she uncovers, the more danger she and the people around her are in.

2. Why should people know about yourself and your story?

People should know about me and my story because it affects them and their children. I, like most Americans never heard of genetically modified foods. I think we have a naive sense that if it’s bad, the government will do something about it. Problem is, as we recently saw last month, Congress voted against transparent GMO labeling. Our elected officials vote to protect the rights of big corporations and not the people who elected them and that has to stop.

3. How long have you been writing stories?

5 years

4. What movie have you seen the most in your life?

Jason Bourne – The Bourne Identity

5. Who would you like to collaborate with on a creative project?

Gwyneth Paltrow …. Being that she recently went to Capitol Hill to push for mandatory labeling of foods made with genetically modified ingredients or GMOs, I’d love for her to be Kelley in the movie.

6. How many stories/screenplays have you written?

This is my first published book and this will be my first…(of many) …screenplays.

7. What motivated you to write this story?

I used to live in New York and one night I received a phone call advising me that my mom was very sick and being rushed to the hospital. I left New York and returned back to Arkansas. As I assumed the duties of being her caregiver, I noticed that there were times she would be sitting there with tears in her eyes and clenched fists. She was in severe pain and trying to bear it on her own. So we started documenting everything she eat and drank. As long as she eat meat and vegetables, there was no pain. Then I discovered that the pain returned, once she eat something that had GMOs in it. So, I paid utmost attention to what I purchased, until one day, I bought black pepper in a hurry…got it home, prepared dinner and here come the tears again…I became angry over what should have been the simplest thing to buy, that it was laden with gmo filler. So at this point, I wanted to try and educate people in an entertaining and thought provoking way, because people are going through serious battles that can all be conquered with knowledge and change.

8. Describe your process; do you have a set routine, method for writing?

Not really, I see scenes in my head and write them down before I forget them…Then when the time is right, I pull everything together.

9. Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Singing….I have my own Independent record label http://www.JenniferLangMusic.com. So as I think about the screenplay, I think about the movie’s soundtrack.

10. What influenced you to have your story made into a video pitch?

I think that having a video pitch done is a great way of getting the story and the book in front of people to help build buzz for the movie.

11. Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers?

At heart, writers are creative people. So I would say, write from your heart. Write to affect and to effect, so that what pushes and motivates you can be a blessing to other people.
