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 14 – Destination: Best of Borough

The end of the year brings with it a ton of “Best of” lists. For many published authors, it tends to be a bit of a sore spot when your name isn’t up there. We get it. We feel it! A big part of this industry is navigating the Green Monster at the end of the year. To bring a bit of humor to this, we decided to do our own BEST OF list by handing out superlatives. We’ve got everything from “Best Laugh” to “Best Celebrity Lookalike” to “Most Inspirational.” We hope this episode brings a smile to your face and gives you a few new authors to check out.
