A few weeks after the pandemic was officially declared in the US and many of us went into lockdown, I decided to give an AuthorTube channel a go. It’s basically a YouTube channel aimed toward other authors and curious readers.
I had no aspirations of becoming the next YouTube star or influencer. My reasons for starting a channel were pretty basic. I needed an outlet during this time of isolation, and I wanted to pay it forward by helping aspiring authors.
It’s probably a good thing I had no grand dreams of YouTube stardom, considering my views have been minimal. But to be honest, if someone wants their YouTube channel to rack up views, they have to consistently make new videos. In the beginning I uploaded a new video each week, but it’s been about a month since I posted a new one.
I’ve enjoyed making the videos, and I am not quitting, but I won’t be making another one until I feel there is something I really want to share with other writers or my readers. Fact is, my writing keeps me pretty busy, and when it comes down to it, that’s my number one priority.
I’m currently work on Book 26 in the Haunting Danielle series, The Ghost and the Witches’ Coven. I normally have more down time between books, but I charged right into this one, which is another reason, no new AuthorTube videos. I’m having fun writing this new book, hope my readers will like it.
I know many of you have been getting back in the world—I see those photos on social media of people with friends or at restaurants. But I am still living the reclusive life, because of our household’s medical concerns. Hope you are all doing well out there, and if you are getting out in the world again, please be careful and take the necessary precautions.
