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 8 – Destination: Writing in the Time of Covid-19

It’s been a tough few weeks. Plans have changed. Routines have been disrupted. The publishing industry, along with many others, have taken a huge hit. This week we decided to talk about how self-isolation has affected our writing routines. Who even wants to think about deadlines at a time like this? But, some people do have to. This episode covers everything from updates to lists of resources to brighten your quarantine, to just plain encouragement that you’re not alone.
