NEW Things Are Happening at JLJ Media

As you have probably noticed, I have been posting here regularly again! I am just about back to my old self (with New twists) and I am ready to take on the world. During my time off I have reflected and started editing my professional life.I have some exciting changes coming up! Here are a few of them:

I have a new EP coming out May 1st with the dance group Chog. It’s called The Seven Song EP. Right now you can listen to it for free on my soundcloud page. Our first collab together, The Five Song EP, is one of my most successful music projects ever! I was happy to return and work with them! It will be released on all music platforms.

Speaking of Music, one of my songs from my album Speaking With Strings will be featured in the Amazon series Asunder. I am so honored by this. I never dreamed how far my music could take me. Stay tuned for details and which episode!

And I am working on two new music projects, one for a podcast/Web show and my regular album that is a follow up to my first, Songs From my Inside Voice. I am also writing songs for a possible Spanish language album.

I have newer books out and one of them is flying off the shelves, Being A Heartie. I talk about the trails of off camera of the show When Calls The Heart, behind the scenes of the aftershow I do, the love the Hearties have show me through difficult times and some fun stuff. Get it on Amazon kindle or paperback! I have a slew of new books coming out this year! The Really Short Story Project is in full effect!

The Second half of The Really Quick James Lott Jr Show is returning! I have filmed enough material for about 4 episodes. So stay tuned for that! Sorry for the delays. Goto my YouTube channel to watch the first half of this Season Two!

I am really building my Super Organizer University and my speaking engagments. I am still doing the soap podcasts and A Lott of Help and In Between The Pages with James Lott Jr podcasts..

All good things must come to an end. May 13th, after 4 seasons, The last Breaking Into on Black Hollywood Live will be airing! It will be my big 50th Birthday show and we will talk about age! I am bringing back former guests and I will probably cry the whole episode! I will write more about my feelings later. I am honored to have done that show!

I am taking the Extra Connections show and makng it bigger! After several years just as a podcast, I just signed a deal to bring it to radio and YouTube! Monday May 20th at 7pmPST is the debut of the new incarnation of the show! it will be live!! I will continue to have amazing guests and topics. It’s at a new studio here in my town of Inglewood, called The I am very excited!!

I think that is enough for now. I have other stuff i am working on and will announce at some point! Thanks for supporting me as a personality and content creator!

7 Things That James Lott Jr Can’t Stand

I’m a very positive person, but there are things that happen that I can’t stand. Here are 7 of them:

  1. Not talking to someone if you have a problem with them. You talk to everybody else but not them and the problem never gets solved.

  2. Unnecessary attitude when you have done nothing to provoke it .Usually the person giving attitude has stuff going on and takes it out on you.

  3. Animal Cruelty. Anyone who tortures or abuses animals should be jailed and worse….

  4. Making a negative statement about something positive. Really do you need to? Obviously it’s for attention.

  5. Assuming.

  6. Absence of manners. I will always open doors for people and say please and thank you.

  7. Violence against anyone based on them being “different” from you . Not acceptable. And in many ways, we are way more alike than we realize.

Happy New Year…Sure!!



This is my first post of the year on this blog site! Its 15 days in and I was trying to decide what to write. Blakhope Productions and James Lott Jr are going through a transitional time! I am in the middle of figuring out whats next. Its an exciting time and a time of hard work that I am putting in .

I am still decided what THIS space will be used for. I have the Flash Fiction Mini Series Good Morning, that I will continue on here. That has been fun to write. I have been sharing my poetry and spoken word on here. I think I will continue to do that too. I just urge you to stay tuned and thank you for any and all support you have given me!!

Happy New Year….YES!!

10 Promises I Made To Myself


After age 40, I chose to have a clear, happy, fullfilling life. It’s not easy to get there but it is possible. It is constant work and commitment. And there are many decisions to be made at any given time. These are the promises I made to myself:

  1. I will not take a job that I don’t want. This was after years of HAVING to take jobs I hated.
  2. I will not stay at a job that mistreats me and doesnt appreciate my abilities.
  3. I will lovingly let go of friendships that no longer are healthy. I will try to work on them and recognize when its failing.
  4. I promise to release my creativity.
  5. I promise to find like minded people to fill my universe.
  6. I promise to be nice to others just because being nice is a nice thing to do!
  7. I won’t sweat the small stuff and make it into bigger stuff.
  8. I won’t look for trouble in relationships. I will give the benefit of the doubt and keep my eyes open.
  9. I will be open to new things.
  10. Change can be good.
