Hello Hello, fellow Genre-Jumpers! It has been a long while of mostly silence but silence and stillness are very necessary things, especially when it comes to growing creatively. I am not 100% certain, but I think it’s been easily two years since I greeted you all, (Announcement that my debut novel was free for a spell, aside) and let me start by saying I’ve missed you!
Now that that’s taken care of, let’s talk about what has been going on.
I STARTED A PODCAST
Yes, you read that correctly. Last month, I not only launched a new website BUT a whole Podcast to go along with it!
The podcast is called THESE READ LETTERS, and it is not only for writers but readers as well. Here is my fancy tagline:
A bi-weekly, motivational Podcast for Writers & Readers exploring how to tell stories with intention.
As creatives, as humans, expressing ourselves verbally has its own set of challenges but when we seek to weave stories and express the thoughts of others, the process can be even more so, despite the excitement that it brings. Having had the misfortune of reading one too many books that lost their way, I decided that it was time to not only offer whatever help I could but also set a table to learn myself.
Creating is a continuous process of growth and learning. We all have moments where we miss the mark. I want to help myself and others stay on track from the starting word until the glory of typing ‘the end’.
The website will not only host links for the podcast itself, which you can also follow on Spotify, but that is where my Writer’s Wisdom and creative writing prompts and exercises will be as well! So I encourage you to follow and share with others.
And please leave comments and feedback. The only way I can improve and help you improve as well is to know what it is that you are most curious about. So leave a comment or shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
IN THE MEANTIME & BETWEEN TIME…
In the mean and between time of creating new podcast content, and working an audiobook and new cover for NEXUS GATE, I have decided to jump to another genre and write a random-generated-word Clean read, romcom.

It already has a title and is based off one of my failed attempts at being an abstract artist. It is actually titled for the painting that has inspired it.
If you are feeling froggy and would like to leap into this April writing challenge, you can do so by checking out the post HERE for more details.
That is all for now but I will be back sooner than later, dropping off writing prompt results and sharing future art and other novel ideas.
Until we meet again.
Write on? RIGHT ON!
