When Something’s Gotta Give

I’m stepping back from a weekly blog post. I have a self-imposed deadline with my current WIP and need every spare minute to reach it. This hiatus may extend even longer, since I seem to have so little free time to do what I love – write.

Let’s face it – I don’t have much to say of interest and there are tons of other bloggers out there who do. I started it to share my thoughts as a new author, adding other things along the way to make it more relevant to a broader audience. Success, shall we say, has been elusive.

So, for now, new posts will appear when I have the time and something I feel compelled to share. I’m going to focus on two things: writing new material and marketing my already-published books.

I’ll still be around, reading and commenting on the many fine blogs out there and engaging with my readers. Feel free to contact me if you want to say hello, ask a question, or share what’s going on in your world. Another way to follow my progress is to check the “Books in Process” page on my website.

I’m grateful for the engagement of faithful readers and for your understanding regarding this change. You’re the best!

Author: Alexander Elliott

Alexander grew up in the Midwest, was compelled to attend private school, and ended up with an eclectic career. He’s still trying to figure out what he wants to do with his life. When not working to pay the bills, he loves to read, watch Star Trek, and laugh at Calvin and Hobbs cartoons. He also enjoys long baths, country music, nature photography, cooking and keeping up with his large family. Until recently, his writing included unpublished stories, music, poetry and drama scripts. Writing his first novel in 2016 changed everything, and he struggles to balance a boatload of ideas with very little time. His favorite genres include science fiction, fantasy, paranormal and romance. The author strives to create imaginative, generally upbeat stories with happy endings, making sure the bad guys get their comeuppance. He considers reading a chance to get away from it all and invites you to join him. If you enjoy Alexander’s work, he would love to hear from you. aelliottbooks@gmail.com

  1. Oh rats! I do so enjoy your weekly letters! Oh well, if it comes to you writing more stories or doing the weekly post, I’ll opt for more stories! I hope sales are going well & that your imagination never ends! Looking forward to your new adventures….Moon Pups sounds like fun!

    1. Thank you for your encouragement! I won’t disappear, but the blog has to take a back seat to productive and helpful writing. I’m having a great time with Moon Pups and exploring some new ideas to the series. Stay tuned!

  2. Hi Alexander, I can so relate to you saying this, it made me smile:

    ”Let’s face it – I don’t have much to say of interest and there are tons of other bloggers out there who do. I started it to share my thoughts as a new author, adding other things along the way to make it more relevant to a broader audience. Success, shall we say, has been elusive.”

    I’ll say a ‘me too’ here and whatever you can give us with your posts will be refreshing and honest. I’ve pulled back too following an inclination to post when I have something to say and not repeat old ground. Good luck with your hard work, and til next time!

    1. Thank you! I AM making faster progress on my manuscript, so cutting back has helped as intended. I hope you are doing well and staying busy (in a good way!).
