Tea of the Week – Exciting Announcement!

I (CHARLOTTE PALMER EVANS) AM TAKING OVER, THIS IS NOT A DRILL, I REPEAT, THIS IS NOT A DRILL PEOPLE! Welcome to a whole new era of Episode Life! Lolol, okay okay, I really need some chill. If you weren’t on the ‘gram over this weekend, this probably isn’t making much sense to you right now. Let me introduce myself; I am Charlotte (aka Joseph ‘the legend’ Evans wife.) So as we all know, Joe set up Episode Life a little while back and had some awesome ideas of what he wanted to do with it. Unfortunately, or fortunately depending how you look at it, he is such a badass entrepreneur that he physically doesn’t have time to do it all. So, this is where I come in. I am taking over everything Episode Life! Just to clarify, Joe does know about this and it is all consensual lol. This isn’t a hostile takeover, I’m not sat there like some evil genius mastermind manically laughing whilst stroking my cat (I actually am petting my cat, but let’s just skip over that.) Basically, this is all for the greater good.

So with intros done out the way; Hello and a very warm welcome to Episode Life! Here it is all things Episode, and I know what some of you are thinking; what does she know about Episode? And I’m not gonna lie to you, I am a newbie, I hold my newbie hands up and admit that. However, I really feel like I have fallen in love with the Episode community. Over the summer, I attended the first Episode meet up in London, and I was hella nervous. I wasn’t even doing a talk! I was just a camera lady! Even so, I felt like it was Joe’s thing and that people would be all Mean Girl’s “You can’t sit with us!” Boy was I wrong. I don’t think I have ever met such a friendly, nonjudgemental and welcoming group. I immediately felt like I was being welcomed into the fold, and I flipping loved it. Right, that’s it with the emosh stuff, first thing you need to learn about me is that I am rarely sentimental or overly mushy, so that’s your lot for now.

I really want to create an Episode fam with this website, I want it to be all positive and rainbows, but also useful to y’all. So to do this, we all need to work on this together. As a fam. I am deffo going to need your help showing me the reins and educating me on Episode. I’m also going to need your help with developing this site, because this isn’t just my site, it’s our site. I wanna know what you guys want to get out if it and how to make it the best it can be.

I’ve got so many ideas of things I wanna do such as author interviews, competitions etc. At the moment I have come up with a schedule that I think should be pleasing to the ears and eyes;

  • Monday: Tea of the Week; I want you guys to fill me in on the juiciest gossip and the hottest tea (all Episode related, though feel free to let me know celeb gossip too cos I live for it!) and the best will be posted and you get mentioned and appropriate links will be included. Backgrounds and Overlays will also be uploaded. 
  • Wednesday: Story Reviews; So I wanna see YOUR reviews on Episode stories, doesn’t matter how popular the story is and this can be from reviewers, readers and writers (but obvs, you can’t review your own story, nice try tho!) Two will be picked and posted, again all appropriate links will be included if yours is used. Don’t despair if yours isn’t chosen one week because there is always the chance it could be posted another week. Backgrounds and Overlays will be uploaded. 
  • Friday: What do we think of Fan Art Fridays?! I love a bit of fan art myself and I’m thinking we could choose a theme for that week (example; fave Episode authors) and a few will be chosen and posted, again all links will be included if yours is chosen. Backgrounds and Overlays will be uploaded. 
So what do we think? Yay, or nay? Don’t be afraid if you think these ideas stink, you can tell me, I can take it. I may cry into my iced almond milk latte, but I’m fine (jokes.) Once we all get into the swing of things, I’ll then start introducing the author interviews and other fun stuffs into the mix, fyi I got some good peeps already on board for the author interviews. Right, I’m gonna shush my mush now cos I bet y’all have fallen into boredom town and wanna leave by now. I just wanna quickly say thank you so much to all the love and support everyone has already shown me and the site and nothing else to say but LET’S DO DIS!!
