The other day, I hired someone to do a book trailer for my upcoming book. I was a bit nervous about it because I wasn't sure how it would turn out. When I got the trailer back, it was done well, but it wasn't what I wanted. This was definitely not the other person's fault. They just did what I asked.

But you know, I learned something from this situation. Sure, I lost some money from this project, but I gained new insight about myself. I discovered that I had the creativeness in me to make a book trailer on my own! I am still working on it, but I find it is much more rewarding to be able to do the work myself.

That's not to say I'll never hire someone again, but if there are ways that I can do it, why not try it?

I want to make a correction to a very common quote. "If you want something done the way you want it do it yourself!"

Hi:

My question to you, is did you ask for a preview of what your web tech did for you before the finished product, so he or she could tweek it into just what you wanted?

Hi Raymond, 

Unfortunately, the preview option was not available to me. They did everything I asked them to do, so it wasn't on them. I just wasn't satisfied with the end result.

Hi Ceara:

I am sorry that preview wasn't available to you.

I am blessed that my web tech sometimes does things I asked him to do, in a "Better" way than I had imagined.

I owe him a lot as to what my new author website in January, 2018 will look like.

I hope 2018 is a wonderful year for your new book.

Hi Raymond! 

Thank you so much! I plan to continue on working hard to get my book recognized as writing is what I would like to do for a living! Good luck to you too on your work!

How long have you been writing, or writing books?

Comment by Ceara Comeau on November 26, 2017 at 3:45am

I have been writing books since I was twelve years old. I am now twenty-four.
