For those of you who have been around since I made my first Facebook page and started promising to publish a book, you already know this fact I'm about to share. The original name of my website was BooksByBond which matched the name of my Facebook page a while back. Since then, I've changed my author page and website to a more appropriate title of EvanBondAuthor. However, I still love the BooksbyBond name and tag. I've been wondering how to use it again ever since. And I think I have it.
You may have noticed there is now a page on my site called Books by Bond. If you're curious what that is, give it a click and find out. Or I'll just tell you now. I've decided to do something new on my YouTube channel. I've been struggling for a while trying to figure out how to properly incorporate YouTube into my social media and writing career. I didn't want to do the typical book review thing or even give writing or publishing advice. There's a lot of channels out there that already do this and probably do it better than I could.
I will now be writing short stories for YouTube. Probably about 5-10 minutes long. Each story will be narrated by myself and matched with imagery, also taken by me, to match the tone. The idea behind this is to create an audio book type of experience that can be either watched or listened to. With YouTube Premium allowing you to lock your phone and listen to videos rather than having to watch them, I feel there's a market for more audio entertainment. I'm hoping I'm right.
So, if you like audio books and short stories, I hope you'll subscribe to my channel and look forward to those stories coming soon. I won't be releasing them on any set schedule. With having to write the story, record it, record video, and produce it all, it might be a while between stories. But hopefully they're fun, unique, and entertaining!
Let me know what you think of this idea in the comments below. And please consider subscribing to the channel now so you can be among the first to hear these stories!
