You wouldn't believe that after being in front of a camera as many times as I have (when I was an actress) that I'd be nervous, but I was.
Madalyn Morgan’s Author Biography Video – and Book Trailers

I thought about making a video biography for my author page on Amazon when Foxden Acres was published in February 2012, and again this year when Applause was published in April. But you know how it is? Good ideas are often put on the back burner when you’re busy. Then, at the September chapter meeting and lunch of the LRNA in Leicester, Lizzie Lamb introduced Sarah Houldcroft of Authors Uncovered. Sarah gave me her card and I looked AU up when I got home.
“Authors Uncovered, the place where authors and booklovers can connect, read, write and share.” http://www.authors-uncovered.com/
Sarah has been working as a virtual assistant for authors helping them promote their books online. She said authors do not want to spend time marketing their books they want to write the next book. Isn’t that the truth? Sarah is not an author, she is a prolific reader and booklover and as such, she is uniquely placed to know what readers and authors want.
From what Sarah says on the website – and the annual fee being reasonable, I decided to go with AU and made my video. And that’s another story. Having had a weekend of problems with my computer, I recorded it on my camera. I had to go with the first rehearsal because I broke the camera. It’s true. Lips and words would not synchronize after the first take. Anyway, now it’s done, I shall link it to my Amazon author page with a written biography.
