Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day!

This year, in recognition of the tenth anniversary of this international tradition, I’m going to discuss eBook piracy, a subject I’ve been meaning to blog/vlog about for a while.

Standard disclaimer: These are just the opinions of one author, who had his first book published (and pirated) this year–two significant milestones in any writer’s career. The content of this video also does not represent the opinions of my agency, publisher, or cat. Please share your own thoughts on eBook piracy as readers, writers, editors, publishers, or Cylons in the comments below!

It’s also apparent that I need a better camera to record these videos. If you vlog, let me know what camera you’ve been using and what you think of it. Thanks!

video power

I’ve been wanting to try “vlogging” (video blogging) for a while, and a new book is a great excuse. If you haven’t seen it yet, here’s my first attempt for the “Apocalypsies Now” YouTube Channel, in which the author introduces himself; pronounces the name of Fair Coin‘s protagonist, Ephraim Scott; and tells you why he publishes fiction under his initials.

I had fun making this, once I got over my stage fright. I’d like to do it more frequently on my own YouTube channel (maybe with a better camera), but if I do, I’ll need more topics to vlog about! So I’m taking questions in the comments: ask me anything about me, my book, or whatever random thing you want to stump me with, and I’ll answer some of them in my second vlog next week.
