Day 15 #MarchoftheWriter

 How do you social?

On Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, Linkedin… actually that’s not what this is about.

How do you connect with other writers, with your tribe and with potential new readers?

I have two answers for you.

The first; Go Indie Now.
Yep, you’ve seen me mention the media platform Go Indie Now and the workaholic, Mr Joe Compton.
Joe has created a platform where the indie community can meet, chat have heated debates, get drunk at Joe’s bar (Just kidding) – no I’m not!

Find out about new indie films, books and what’s hot in the gaming community. These shows, panels, interviews, and reports are entertaining for the public and the indie community.
Authors, there is so much you can learn from those that have done it all. We’ve all made mistakes so learn from those that have tried and failed but don’t give up. Get tips and get the inside scoop on what’s going down in the indie world.

Have you always wondered what’s inside a writer’s mind? How do they build these magical, dangerous and extraordinary worlds? How do they come up with the characters you love, with the plot twists and write stories that will keep you turning the page and gasping for more?

You will find these answers and more on the media platform Go Indie Now. So please support Joe and all the hard work he does for the Indie community. Seriously, this man just never stops.

The reason I mention this in my article about being social, is I have made some wonderful connections and long-lasting friendships with indies I’ve met while being a guest on the shows. This then takes me to their safe place. Their group, where I’m welcomed and treated as one of the family. Thus creating more connections and friendships, thus learning more from my peers.

Please subscribe to The Go Indie Now YouTube channel and take a look at the shows he hosts. Watch and be entertained, leave a comment and like the videos.
Thanks, and remember, it’s always time to Go Indie Now

And my other way to socialize is not knowing who is Behind The Pen. (Did you see what I did just then. lol)

Podcasts, Zoom interviews, Radio shows, they are so hot right now. If you want to find new readers, you have to step up, show your face, and let us hear your voice. There are thousands out there waiting to hear about exciting new books and authors they have never heard of. The world is yours to conquer!
Okay – maybe I went a little too far with that last line. But I’m sure you understand what I’m trying to say. People don’t know you. They don’t know your name, they don’t know your books, and now you have a chance to be seen, heard and noticed.
If you’re camera-shy, contact podcasts and radio stations. If the camera loves you, get on some pannels, shows and interviews. Your readers are out there waiting.

Behind the Pen is a YouTube show and audio podcast where I chat with all artists; musicians, authors, illustrators, writers, editors, anyone who uses a pen for work.

Would You Like A Dose Of Reality?

Let’s go on a binge.

So, if you’re like me, you’re will hear or come across a show that looks interesting. I normally know after the pilot episode whether or not I’m going to like the program, and then I binge.  Now I’m not referring to one or two shows a day. I have health issue that leave me at home, so I have a lot of time on my hands. Unless I’m writing, working for a client, or generally busy, I’m streaming my favourite TV shows. I will get into actual dramas in another post, but this one is about reality shows.

The Kardashians
Haters hate and kickers kick, but don’t think I watch this show because I like them. They are a vain, conceited, spoiled, a mentally unstable family. But it’s bloody entertaining. I binge watched as early back as I could. I’m up to date now and don’t miss an episode. Leave a comment if you love or hate this show and why.

Undercover Boss.

I just loved the sound of the title. I watched the USA version first and then the Canadian and then the UK  (and that was a waste of my TV time.)

So for those of you that have never heard of this is show. It’s where the big wigs/top brass (unless they are too well known then they get their unders to take their place) go undercover in their own company, on the front lines. Yep, they get a make over/disguise and some are truly dreadful. Then they go cleaning sewage, dinner plates, collect the garbage, work as a shop assistant or a baker and get to see how tough the jobs are. And they get to see how amazing their workers are and how tough their lives are. Sometimes they get to hear the home truths about their own company and what the staff think about the corporate heads. It’s actually a very humbling show and you can tell, that if there was any set up, it wasn’t much. It’s truly realistic and makes me cry on every episode. The only thing the annoys me about this program is that they hand out thousands of dollars to these five works that the top dog worked with to help them with living expensive, debts and student loans and costs, but what about the other thousand workers they have. Everyone has a story, everyone has problems. Just seems a little unfair.

But I love the show and don’t miss the weekly episode. It took me around three weeks to watch from season one up until now.

Face Off

Wow, from the first episode I knew this show was going to hook me. If you love special effects, monster movies, then you will enjoy this program. If you love entertaining reality shows, where the contestants are put through grueling tasks that test their talent, time management and strength both mentally and psychically, then you really have to watch this show. Contestants have but a few hours to do a foundation make up and they are unbelievable. In return they can win immunity from the spotlight challenge or get a pretty awesome prize. Then for the spotlight challenge they have to design a character from head to foot in only three days and one of them is for application. Each episode we say good bye to one of the talented make up artists, until three are left for the final.  I have nothing negative to say about this show. It’s truly fascinating and entertaining at the same time.

There are ten seasons up till now and I have binge watched six of them and still loving it.


Leave a comment on your favourite reality show, as long as it doesn’t have the initials BB. And let me know if you watch any of the three I have mentioned.
