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.

    I enjoy reading your books and I enjoy watching your YouTube author series. I am an aspiring writer who has great ideas but the writing is slow. I love reading about mysteries and ghosts and have a great love of the Theatre so I combined all of that to create a story I can relate to and have lots of knowledge about. It’ll be a cute cozy mystery series…if I can just get started. Thank you for your inspiration and insight.

    I have listened to all your books and can’t wait for for your next one. I enjoyed the series so much that I started the series again. I was amazed that I had missed some details & now I can concentrate on the characters more. I really like the person who does your audio!I am thinking about writing books for my grandchildren but would like to have them mounted as a hard bound book. Do you know of a online company that will do this that is reasonably priced. I plan to go to You Tube to watch your videos. Thank you for newsletters!

      Glad you are enjoying the books! Check out Lulu.com. You can create a hardback or paperback there, and order one or more books at a time. That would be a beautiful gift for your grandchildren. I have friends who also like to paint, and I am always trying to talk them into making a coffee table book that they can give to friends and family as a gifts. It is something I would treasure.

      Good luck! Bobbi
