The Jinapher begins with...
I started my blog in 2013 as a book review site. For years before, I’d written books and short fiction, so building a blog was a natural next step. Every few months, however, I’d stumble upon my next great idea and completely start over with my blog. It wasn’t until 2016 that I officially rebranded from “Jinapher J. Hoffman” to “The Jinapher” and began blogging about what I really love – modern digital writing.
I published my first novel in 2015 and followed with several short fiction publications – which you can read here. This was all while I was in college. Once I graduated with my BFA in Creative Writing for the Entertainment Business in 2017, I really buckled down on making The Jinapher something.
Every day, my blog evolves for the better, but as of late 2018, something just clicked. Authors and writers everywhere began to resonate with my blogs on marketing for authors. It became clear to me that there was a gap in the market for a blog that taught all the things I teach now – modern creative writing, building a professional author website, and marketing yourself for the long-haul.
