Self-employed Toronto, Canada Area

Writing, acting, producing for self and others.

Director of SeveralArts Ventures Inc. John Victor De Marco
JV DeM writes for books, plays and scripts. J (John or Jake) also makes industrial and documentary videos as seen on YouTube and elsewhere. JV De M is an author who writes, encourages others to write, and does some acting and directing for stage and or film now and then.

JV DeM's wish for other potential authors: write, write and write some more.
Read any and all 'free stuff' available from sources such as 'Smashwords' and others before you spend your money. Watch any and all 'free stuff' to be found on YouTube from sources such as 'Smashwords' and others before you frustrate yourself and your budget.

Education: Ryerson, other
Single Camera Film Doc. Theatre - Dir. as Tech., Film/Cinema/Video Studies, etc.

Enumerating scholastic achievement should be supported by things done.

Been taking my own advice and writing instead of talking and posting too much. Remember that. The words don't get onto the page unless you put them there. Using social intercourse as an excuse for not writing is only fooling you. Be careful with the scotch and or wine, the keys get sticky after awhile.

Cheers JV DeM

Smashwords Interview

What is the present status of books by this author?
As of 12 March 2019 the author and holder of copyright to 4 books presently published by Smashwords were donated to The Wounded Warriors of Canada.

It is hoped that they will in future be a source of revenue for a worthy cause that Wounded Warriors of Canada is. There are no strings attached to this gift/donation-in-kind. It is a small token of appreciation for those whom have served.

This is the author's way of saying 'Thank you for your service.'

What do your fans mean to you?
Do you know any? Wait that's not right. I live with my best fan and she cleans my clothes and other stuff.

I could write drivel and please myself but few others. Having fans, people who actually like and or agree with me is inspiring. Wow, my fans have a hell of a job ahead of them.

Okay, I got it. So, fans liking what they read is important and therefore, a sincere effort has been made to entertain without preaching at them.
