Deadline City’s Podcast

Hosted ByZoraida & Dhonielle

Welcome to Deadline City: a podcast and a destination. We are two New York City-based authors who share an office and work on multiple books at a time. Between us, we have 40 books published and under contract, and we’re just getting started. If you’ve seen us on the road, you know how we cut up. We like to have fun and talk about the one thing that is always on our minds: creating books. Publishing is a big scary world to many of us, and our goal is to pull back the curtain on some of the mystery by simply talking about it. In our first season, we want to dig into subjects like YA fiction, editing, reading reviews, burnout. Most of the time, you publish a book and then you’re at a loss for what comes next. How do you navigate the industry and then still manage to write more books? That’s a journey we’re on and know that so many others are on the same road. We hope you come along for the ride.

Episode 10 – Destination: Thankful Station

Welcome to a very special Deadline City episode. You know how every novel has an acknowledgments page? Well, consider this ours. There are so many brilliant minds who have given us advice that has proved invaluable in our careers. From letting us know that everything will be okay, to writing techniques, these words have made us better writers. We want to share these nuggets of wisdom with you, and add a few of our own hard-earned lessons and special shout-outs.
