It doesn't matter anymore.
Truly, it doesn't matter if you read this blog or not. I was going to wait until the end of the month to close it, but why wait?
I get asked why am I closing the blog?
I have run out of things to say; whereas I once blogged two, and sometimes three times a day, when I thought people were reading the blog http://alsdomain.weebly.com/ Now, I find it hard to do three blogs a week.
It appears the only blogs which get read are the ones about my declining health, or my near death experiences http://alsdomain.weebly.com/at-the-blogstop/guardian-angels / http://alsdomain.weebly.com/at-the-blogstop/guardian-angels-2 / http://alsdomain.weebly.com/free-reads/dodging-the-bullet
I started the blog three years ago, with the idea it might help my sales http://www.barnesandnoble.com/c/alan-place
The Peacock Writers
I also hoped in some small way, I may have helped our charity books http://thepeacockwriters.weebly.com/ I realise now, I did little or nothing in either cause.
At the beginning of the year, I hoped I may have a chance to join the writers at http://www.blacklibrary.com/ I ruined my chances on this project. In my eagerness to grab a dream; I forget Writing 101 - when you finish the task, re-read it for typos, then read it again. When I re-read it, I was ashamed of the typos I sent, I AM a lot better than they think, but, you get but one chance, and I BLEW it. I will try to rescue some pride by running the story as a sequel to the extended edition of my Forgestriker series http://alsdomain.weebly.com/forgestriker---the-hit-series.html#.VOiVAXysXHs
At the beginning of the year I hoped my story http://www.barnesandnoble.com/sample/read/9781498981095 might get read on BBC Radio 4. I had a 1 in 200 chance, but the contest is of such high standards, I doubt I'll get a reading.
My plans for the months ahead involve the extension of "Empire's Wraith," http://writersgettogether.blogspot.co.uk/2015/02/empires-wraith.html and "Darkness of the Soul," http://alsdomain.weebly.com/coming-soon/the-darkness-of-the-soul into the Forgestriker series. I also have other projects in mind. Two of which are my wartime mystery "Two lives for Freedom," and my fantasy story "Mordhiemicus," which is an extended version of a story which got praised by a friend who has a BA in Medieval Studies http://www.barnesandnoble.com/sample/read/2940148153061
So, if you are interested - and I hope you are - my work will be available on http://www.barnesandnoble.com/c/alan-place
