Hi Ericka,

I wanted to pass along some information for you in case its useful. 

At The Book Club Network, they are connected to over 30,000 homeschool moms.  I wonder if that would be a place for you to market/advertise.  They also have Book Fun TV which would help promote your video to reach many more people.

If you are interested, contact Fred@thebookclubnetwork.com.  He can help you promote to the people you want to reach if you are interested.


in Him,

Cheri Swalwell

Hi Everyone:

I am presenting a different promo video for my new book: Homeschool Adventure Show: Interview Highlights - First Grade Book I.  I have used in the past; video scribe, animoto, and powtoons.  This one (also a Fiverr gig) was done as a movie trailer.  Let me know what you think???

Thanks Eva for the information.

Try Express Scribe: http://www.nch.com.au/scribe/index.html with a USB foot pedal. Your work will go a lot faster. The pro version offers more choices of formats, but the free version might work for you. You can use it without the foot pedal, too. But it takes a whole lot longer if you use keys instead of your feet.

I type about 100 WPM, and I've been doing it for over 20 years. I really enjoy it a lot.

Hi Eva, you are right. I have such great memories recorded on print. Nice to meet a friendly Homeschool Mom. I see you offer Transcription Services. I have a lot of respect for your skills and patience. This is the first time I transcribed from audio to text and it was hard work.  I have a total of 36 shows, but after I saw the work it took to transcribed, I decided to take nine shows for book one. The sales and reviews will let me know if people would like to read more.
