Welcome to TraceyTobin.WordPress.com!

Some time ago, I went through my online presence, disposed of a great deal of excess, and created NoPageLeftBlank.wordpress.com as a place to bring what was most important to me into one spot. At the time it worked wonders, but over the years that have passed since then quite a lot has changed. I am now a published author and a growing YouTuber, and as a result of those things my online presence has once again gotten convoluted. So, with that in mind, I’d like to introduce you to what I’m hoping will be my new-and-improved personal space.

This blog will not be specifically for me as an author, or me as a YouTuber, and it will not be a place specifically meant for blogging or marketing or any other individual issue. TraceyTobin.Wordpress.com will be for me, in whatever form that takes. I will talk about the writing process and what’s happening with my books, I’ll share my YouTube videos and other geeky nonsense as I see fit, and I’ll blog as I desire. This site will be me in my entirety, as I see fit.

So if you’ve come here from NoPageLeftBlank.wordpress.com, thank you very much for following me into this new venture, and if you’re new, welcome! You may see some strange things happening here in the following weeks as I create back-dated posts to share older YouTube videos, but moving forward expect to see lots more of, well…me!

Cheers!

Jason Takes the Basement 5: Friday the 13th Ultimate Jason from NECA!

If you follow our YouTube channel at all, you’ve probably picked up somewhere along the line that my dear husband Jason is a little bit of a Friday the 13th lunatic. He has a few different NECA figures of Jason Voorhees at this point, but was super-excited when he found this particular one in a local comic shop, since Part 4 of the series is one of his two ultimate favorites. Plus…the opening of this video just made me crack up. XD

Jason Takes the Basement 4: DC Universe Rebirth FiGPiNs!

Jason continues his takeover of the Basement today with a couple of awesome DC Universe Rebirth pins from FiGPiN. These two very sizable pins were sent to us by the awesome people over Nerdy Collectibles, who are an amazing online retailer carrying TONS of geeky goodness. So check out the video to see the sweet pins that they sent our way to show to you, and then go take a look at the website, because I guarantee you’ll find something you want!

Authors Answer 143 – The First Book Advance

I’m sure many aspiring authors dream of getting that first advance cheque and blowing it all on something awesome. This week on Authors Answer we’re discussing just that dream. :3

I Read Encyclopedias for Fun

Writing books is a job. Most authors do it with the hope that they can become a full time author, and be able to support themselves on the income they receive. But that first advance is a big milestone in any author’s career. This week’s question comes from our very own C E Aylett.

I would also like to take a moment and thank Beth Aman for her contributions in the past year. She’s going to college, and will be concentrating on that. Good luck, Beth!

Question 143 – What would you/did you spend your first book advance on?

Linda G. Hill

I would spend my advance getting myself out of debt. …wait, how much are we talking? More than $30,000? I’ll probably go out for coffee.

Cyrus Keith

Probably a car. I’ve never had a car that I didn’t have to spend dark, cold evenings in my driveway effecting…

Jason Takes The Basement 2: My Geek Box July 2017

It’s the second spooky (but not really) installment of Jason Takes The Basement! This time Jason is checking out My Geek box, a UK based box full of geeky goodies. This box has no theme and is quite random at times; this month’s box includes items from Ted 2, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, The Big Bang Theory, Avengers, and Tekken. Quite eclectic! Also, Jason does the accent again, so there’s that. lol
