Nephilim on YOUTUBE!
Posted by lamarzulli on August 6, 2008
Nephilim was my first novel. It came out almost ten years ago. It was, for me a wonderful experience, as I got to work with one of the best editors in fiction, Dave Lambert. He went against the grain and decided that the story, which was certainly considered on the fringe at that time, would be added to Zondervans list of books. It became a CBA best seller. If you go to YOUTUBE and do a search for Nephilim you’ll get lots of videos on the subject. In fact someone posted one of, ‘yours truly’ there! I didn’t know it had been posted and I learned about through an Email, someone sent me! All that to say that I wrote Politics, Prophecy & the Supernatural, because people in the UFO community didn’t like fiction. I was turned away from radio interviews, UFO conferences, and treated in a condescending way. What’s more, is that ten years later the publishing world is in the greatest state of flux since Gutenberg invented the printing press. Small book stores are going out of business. Big retailers like Barnes & Noble have so much inventory that a consumer can become overwhelmed. Then there’s always AMAZON. Why drive to the book store, especially when gas is close to $5.oo a gallon, when you can shop with a click of your mouse and never leave the house! What about the concept of the E-book? You pay for the read, download it on your computer and away you go. Of course you can’t be propped up against the headboard of your bed, reading into the late night hours this way and there’s nothing to hold in your hands, it’s all on you monitor. I’m going to be experimenting with a concept that I hope to have posted on YOUTUBE in a few days. I’m going to take the section dealing with the Nephilim, from Politics, Prophecy & the Supernatural and I’m going to read it verbatim, and then fly in pictures and music. Sort of like a docu-drama. Others have done this and it seems to be a worthwhile way of getting ideas into the public mainstream. Could this be a way of creating a series of books? Would people be willing to pay for this? By using the mediums of music, voice-overs, images and drama, are we creating another art form? Is this the future of book publishing? Is this a step up from audio books? I’m excited about this prospect and hope that many of you who are reading this post, will respond with a comment.
