L J Green Author - Update on The Series

I have decided to try another avenue for the Misadventures of Janie and Diane series. I have taken down Bloody Murder at the Blanche Hotel as well as Dastardly Deeds at the Dearborn Theater from Kindle Vella. 

Using AI can help you with your writing and your digital marketing. If nothing else it can be a way for us to find out what might or might not work when it comes to the business of writing. I use AI to help me outline some of my stories as I am a notorious pantser. Now creating the videos using an avatar that I create should help me with the marketing aspect. I am using a pen name to write fiction so why not have create an avatar for all the social media stuff.

I have created some new pictures to use with avatar software and will be working on integrating it into the animation software for future videos. It has possibilities!

L J Green Author - designs T-Shirts for Authors

One of the fun things I like to do for myself and my customers is create fun, themed designs, memes, and gather quotes from our books as well as book covers to create fun and one-of-a-kind wearable art such as T-Shirts, Hats, Coffee Mugs, Mousepads and more. Just because we are not "Best Selling Authors"...YET! Does not mean that we cannot share our vision of our author business and books with others out there who may appreciate it. 

I do it through Shopify and Printful (Print on Demand) companies. They provide the online store, merchandise and I provide the designs to put on them, do the digital marketing and hopefully get some sales going. Shopify allows you to embed your categories of products on pages of your website --- see the sidebar and it also connects to social media accounts that will allow you to share the listings on your pages. 

Support each other - Buy from an indie author/Small Business people this month. They could use your support. And Please - Like, Share, Subscribe and Comment on each of my social media pages that you visit and this website!

Thanks so much.
