Youtube Virgin No More

Posted on Updated on

I’m edging back into weekly blogging again and I’m planning on weekly posts rather than daily posts, so here we go with the sticking of the toe into the water to begin with. It has been a very busy six months. After the previous three years of insanity it has been good to finally be able to just get on with working on what I love, breathe a little, and figure out what my new life will be. What I finally figured out is that you never know. Which is not necessarily a bad thing. This year has been filled with all sorts of fabulous projects from editing jobs to illustration and a couple of cover designs. I’ve had to move the publication date for my new non-fiction book, The Secret Life of People further towards the middle of September as work for my clients is always a priority, but the second week in September so far is looking like the time of its arrival into the world. I’m really looking forward to that.

I’ve also managed to load my first Youtube video. I have a few more in the works and will definitely be loading one per week covering my writing life and all things self-publishing. The video editing is a steep learning curve so hopefully my future videos will be a lot more tightly knitted—and with a whole lot less umming. I’m sure that at some point I’m going to get an um or two in the comments. If you want to know how to format a full bleed book for print on demand please check it out on Youtube. If you fancy more writerly videos then please do subscribe—I’ll try to hold back on the umming in future.

Watch this space for the introduction of the third book in the Myrtle the Purple Turtle series by Cynthia Reyes and Lauren Reyes-Grange, where Myrtle meets a gorgeous new friend, and by the way—zoom up to the top of this page if you’re looking for a new book cover design – there’s a sale happening up there.

      And you! Yes – they are all 100% original. I use my own photos mostly and artwork so the final designs are one of a kind. 🙂

    Welcome back, Jo. Nice job on the video. If I need a full bleed illustrated book format I think I’ll call you.

    Happy to hear you’re doing well!

    2019 seems to be your year. For me…well. I’d like a do-over. 🙂

        Definitely need it, and covers for books 2 and 3. Yes, I thought book 1 was “the end” but…

    Welcome back in here Jo 🙂
    I went back short time ago and looked for you in here. Have been out for a while, but will go through your blog to find your books, as I like your way of writing.

    Congratulations on your new projects! I’m out of the loop–how are all the Robinson critters?

      Thank you Marian! It’s been a bit cray cray 😀 My hubby had a sudden heart attack 3 years ago so I’ve been scrabbling to find my feet – okay now though thanks to my fabulous author clients. Critters are all miraculously still just as wonderful – little Button died though – lots of crying all around. It amazed me how birds mourn one of their own – one new critter arrived last week – an abused Sengal parrot – so far he’s settling in nicely – will blog about them soon. ❤ ❤
