BOOK BACKUP SOFTWARE

Don't leave your files or your manuscript to chance.

Can you IMAGINE turning on your PC one day... Only to find ALL of your work completely GONE?

Your novel. Your non-fiction book. Your screenplay. All totally VANISHED.
Maybe you accidentally deleted your Word document. Perhaps a virus attacked your computer files. Maybe Microsoft Windows simply died on you. Or maybe the documents all just DISAPPEARED. It happens. It's happened to me!

Backup your files everyday to ensure their safety.

You can also try Dropbox.com and get up to 2GB of FREE space.

RECOVER DELETED FILES

Okay, you didn't take anyone's advice and you haven't been backing up your work. Uh, oh.

Whether you've accidentally emptied your Recycle Bin, or you've been attacked by a virus, or your young child; been randomly banging keys at your PC -- if it's missing, you can get it back.

Get Recover Deleted Files, the super-smart PC program, today for just $22.95.

HERE ARE TWO GREAT VIDEO MARKETING TOOLS for you. But, first to see why using video as part of your marketing strategy is so important, check this article out:
http://www.karencioffiwritingandmarketing.com/2012/06/using-video-for-marketing.html

SPEEDY WEB VIDEO

First up is this $37 dollar ecourse and I love it. It's step-by-step videos of around 10 minutes each, showing you exactly how to create amazing videos. And, you can contact the author if you have questions!

VIDEO MASTERY CREATION

This one is a member site that offers more one-on-one and comprehensive instruction. What's great about this site is it's a ONE TIME fee of $67. New instructional videos are added and you can request a video on something you're having trouble with.

Both of these video marketing tools are more than worth their cost.
