Free Web Resources

There are over 12,000 free resource links in Book Promo 201 and I just found a list posted online - these are other sites that offer free items like, sound effects, video background, pictures and more that can be used when creating any videos - including book trailers.


http://www.pdphoto.org - free photos

http://stockfootageforfree.com - free video clips

http://offto.net/slideandscreen - free creation program


Do you have free resources for sounds, pictures and video that you would like to share? Feel free to add them here in the comment section. Thank you in advance for your contributions.

Free File Converter Websites

I just stumbled across something that is very cool and I can't remember where I saw it. But I bookmarked it - that's the important thing :) Now I want to share these free resources with you.

Do you want a way to convert from PDF to Word or RTF?

Do you want to convert from Word or other document to PDF?
(I've been using this for a long time and it works great.)

Do you want a PDF Editor?
(I have not figured out how to use this yet - but wanted to share in case its good for you.)

Do you want to convert from PDF to Excel?

I hope these will work for you and I'm using one to work on a project right now :) At one point I was ghostwriting a book for a client and they wanted me to use information from 25 different books to create a new book and I had to purchase a program that would let me pull info from the PDF. I believe that was about $40 about 4 years ago. This is much easier and free.
