Hey ya Write Voicers!
As you may have noticed, I have not had a chance to update my blogs since December (tragic, I know). BUT, I have some good news:
I'll be coming back in July! In the mean time, here's some updates to the updates from December of last year!
Update #1: Hiatus
My hiatus will be over in July! I've got a few things to take care of, but I'm confident that I'll be ready by then. Of course, I'll let you know if that changes. Next is....
Update #2: Writing Goals
One of the reasons that I'm taking a hiatus is to work on my writing goals.
I still owe you all an interview with Adam Sass and KJ Burrage (they both have new books coming out this year too!), and I want to make sure I get those to you. But I have to reach back out to both authors to see where we're at on that.
I'm still working on writing a traditionally pubbed book. I'll let ya'll know how it goes.
The reason for the hiatus is still the same, and I still think you'll LOVE it:
Update #3: Podcast!!!
I've noticed that a lot of people enjoy podcasts more than reading, especially if they have a commute to work. So, the other thing I'll be working on this year is turning The Write Voice into a podcast by the same name. All the content you love, just on audio.
Thanks to the purchase of a MUCH BETTER microphone, I can proceed with doing the podcast. I'm a bit behind, but the plan is still the same: I'm going to start with the book reviews on this website and work my way to new content. That way, when I come back from my hiatus, y'all will have double the content! (BONUS: Facebook and Instagram FINALLY let me post my website to their platform, and I've been listed as the Creator of the Week TWICE on Facebook, so thanks ya'll!)
The podcast is still worth it, especially for those who need the audio to help with their daily lives.
I'm excited about this journey and I hope to continue bringing you all content throughout the year, even if it is sporadic. If you're interested in doing a live interview for the podcast I'm creating, please email me. Likewise, if you have a book coming out in late 2023 (which is when I'll most likely be back, fingers crossed) OR in 2024 (I'll definitely be back by then), also feel free to email me with a book review request. I love getting ARCs, so I'll do my best to read and review them promptly.
And, if you've contacted me recently, and I haven't gotten back to you, it's possible that the email got lost in the sauce. If that's the case, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, email me again, or reach out to me on social media. I'm @jlthewriter on ALL platforms.
Okay Write Voicers, that's it for now! TTYL!
