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.

S2 Episode 2: Debut Author Kit

Presenting: The Deadline City Debut Author Kit! Publishing is an industry that’s always evolving. So, how do you crack the code? We’re still trying. Even though we feel like seasoned veterans, we’re still navigating the big wide world of New York Publishing. We don’t have all the answers, and sometimes we feel like every book is another debut. But we’re here to share the survival tips that have worked for us over the years in hopes that your journey is a little bit smoother.
