It’s flown by so fast, but it really has been 9 years since I set up the blog. I just wanted to thank you for being such a great readership. You are the awesome ones. And to add that I will be posting more soon. I’ve been reading plenty and have lots of travel photos too.
Last month I used the wonderful Rachel from Rachel’s Random Resources, who specialises in promoting writers by highlighting their work to literary bloggers. I wanted to thank all the reviewers for their time and effort in reading and their thoughts on my work. I would totally recommend all their websites too.

Wow, another year already! I’m blowing the candles out as we speak! Just wanted to thank you all for making this place the wonderful community it is. I know I haven’t been too much recently but I will catch up soon with you all.
I hope you all had a wonderful Easter and saw lots of cute creatures in your gardens and parks. Not forgetting wonderful chocolate too.
I have great news for you all. My new book is out. It’s a collection of short stories called Always Never, Rarely Sometimes and I’m so happy to be able to tell you all about it. Like with Illusions, Delusions, there are seven stories but this time the focus is on more traditional storytelling with a slight twist.
Read about a regular boy named Harry Potter whose life changes overnight when the literary character becomes a phenomenon. Or about a middle aged lady who goes for quiet coffee and gets more than she bargained for when she spots a group of four friends. Not forgetting the story about an unhappy child’s Christmas being changed thanks to a very surprising encounter. And there’s plenty more 😀
Those are the links if you want to get a copy. It’s also part of Kindle Unlimited. Hope you’re having a wonderful day 😊
I wish you all a wonderful 2021. To health and happiness and for all your dreams for the year to come true.
I’ve shared so much of my writing journey with you and I wanted to give you a quick update. After The Summer of Madness and Illusions, Delusions I’ve been working on my third book. It will be seven short stories, although very different to last time as they will be slightly longer and more character driven.
The above photo was for on recent birthday. My family gave me the surprise of printing a special design onto my cake.
I was keen to do a bit more promotion for The Summer of Madness so I decided to use Rachel’s Random Resources. I’d really recommend her services. I’m so grateful to everyone who agreed to review it and I could happily quote them all. But here are just a few.

Well a lot has happened since my last anniversary that’s for sure. But while there’s a lot going on in the world, it’s still a pleasure to be blogging, reading your posts and interacting with you all. Happy seventh bloggerversary. I thought I’d share some of my favourite posts from my time blogging. I hope you’re all having a wonderful day.

Hey everyone. Hope you had a lovely weekend.
As part of my promotion for my new website http://www.alexanderraphaelwriter.com/ (which you all supported wonderfully on my last post), I’m doing a 40 question quiz on topics you’ll find on my blog. So a nice mix of things like music, sport, literature will be on there, plus a few others.
There’s no video log on needed and all the answers will be multiple choice, so if you don’t know the answer there’s still a chance you’ll get it right. All you have to do is click on the link at 8pm UK time sharp on Tuesday. Hope you can play. Feel free to ask any questions if you want any more information.
Edit: If you want to play this quiz please let me know and I’ll send you a link that hasn’t expired. The system needs my permission to play first and a time set.
You’ve all been part of my writing journey and I wanted to share my new website with you. I’ll still be blogging here (try just and stop me) but wanted a place solely for promoting my creative work. It will feature links to my works as well as some of my poems. What do you think of the site? Let me know what you think by clicking on the link below.
