Two days worth of vlogs for the price of one! Come see my garden, a cute bunny, an old Shakespeare book, and a sneak peek of a short story for Channillo!
Mixing up the vlog styles today. I decided to take you with me during my day yesterday. I talk progress, postcards, and crafting supplies. Let me know how you like this format and leave any questions you'd like me to answer in the next vlog below and I'll do my best to answer them. <3 you!
I'm excited to announce, I have a new series coming to Channillo in November!
Long-Distance Love is about two people who have never met and fall in love the each other through written word. Jenna is a linguistic anthropologist who travels the world studying ancient civilizations while trying to remain connected to her family back in the US. She is never far from a postcard and a pen, scribing her every adventure and sending them back to her family while she is away. Andrew is a personal assistant to a high-end real estate moogle bouncing from city to city never in the same one for more than a week at a time. When a miss-mailed postcard brings Andrew to Jenna, they start a friendly penpal relationship that blooms into something more; into one of mutual respect, love, and affection.
Like many other projects, the inspiration for this series hit me like a ten-ton brick. For those of you who don't know about Postcrossing, it's an online web service where you are randomly matched with other people in the world to send postcards to. Writing my postcards one morning, I was struck with the idea that the short format of postcard content would make for a perfect multi week release cycle on Channillo. A few months ago, a Twitter follower asked me to write something about love that did not necessarily include a physical relationship. The two ideas came together like a lightning strike, and Long-Distance Love was born. The series will be released once Everyday Adventures has concluded with its 200 stories. My target date is Thanksgiving 2017.
I hope you enjoy Jenna and Andrews adventures as much as I love writing them. If you'd like to get involved with the series, comment below a location you'd like them to visit, and something you'd like them to do there. I will build your request into their timeline, with a special shout out when it launches. Thanks as always for your support, and let's make Long-Distance Love as successful as Everyday Adventures!
