Book Giveaway

Just a quick post to remind readers that the Instafreebie book giveaway (20 Environmental Authors) I mentioned in the previous post is still going on. It will end on June 15, 2017. If you haven’t gotten my book yet, this is your chance to get a free copy of The Scientist Videographer. Although it’s not as interactive (or attractive) as the version I published in the iTunes Store (and made with iBooks Author), the Instafreebie text version contains hyperlinks to video tutorials and other online information.

A few reviewer comments:

“Very practical, the story building tips helped me tremendously.”

“This book is great! I had absolutely no experience with video when I stumbled onto Karen McKee’s website, video tutorials, and this book. I learned everything I need to know to start making videos, and videos that I am proud to show others.”

“This book is laced with demo videos to help you understand and apply what you are learning. Most important to me was the step by step help in editing, both enhancing the science story and the technical skills needed to work with common editing software.”

“The Scientist Videographer is cutting edge, practical, and relevant–there’s much to learn.”

“The Scientist Videographer is an inspiration and deserves a spot with the best science communicators of our time.”

If you’ve enjoyed any of my free video tutorials or blog posts about making science videos, please consider contributing to this effort by purchasing my book ($14.99) or recommending it to a colleague, student, or friend.

  • If you don’t own an Apple device, you can purchase the text-only version of my book at Amazon Kindle or Smashwords.
  • You can get the fully interactive version of The Scientist Videographer to read on your Apple device in the iTunes Store. It’s readable on a Mac, iPad, or iPhone. Here is a preview of what this version offers to readers.
