Slower Blogging For Two Weeks

Hello,

This is just a quick information. Currently, I am quite covered in work and therefore had to decide to slow down my activity on ‘Writer’s Treasure Chest’ for two weeks.

I will still check in and try to do what I can. Additionally, I have a couple of posts prepared, but from End of April through Mid-May I will be very busy.

Hopefully, you will enjoy my blog posts after my return.

Thank you so much for your understanding! Have a wonderful springtime and see you soon!

A 2016 – Christmas post – by A. J. Alexander

2016 has been a year full of surprises, shocks, fear, but also fantastic meetings with friends, some of whom I’ve known for years and still just met personally for the first time.

And as well it was a year of connecting to many people here online. Followers, friends, writers, supporters, readers and much more.

THANK YOU!

for making this journey a memorable one for me!

Now there’s not much more left to say, except that I wish you and your families:

A. J. On Air!

September 14, 2016 I was invited to the Radio Show ‘Pearls of the Cee’ on www.cityworldradio.com. – The show broadcasts live from Manhattan – and yes… I was there!!

 

I enjoyed the show so much!! Thank you, Lisa Pearl, the show host for the invitation!!!

 

Right now it’s impossible to set up a link directly to the show. This means, I’m afraid, I can give only you links to the radio archives – and further from there you would have to pick the respective show. But don’t hesitate to browse around. There are so many interesting shows on www.cityworldradio.com!!

Once you’re there, you’ll see this picture – click on the microphone to listen to the archives:

After a quick waiting time, where the live-stream is going to  adjust itself on your monitor, you will see an arrow that points to a file where the archives are stored. Click the file, please.

Once it opens, you will see the archived shows listed. Please, scroll down until you find the archived show, saying: Pearls of the Cee with Lisa 9-14-16 Pearls of the Cee with Lisa 9-14-16 P

I’m very proud of this radio show. Thank you for listening and don’t hesitate to tune in every Wednesday NYC time at 6 pm to listen to Lisa Pearl and her guests. Contact her on her FB page if you got something important to say, want to be a guest on her show or would like to provide feedback.

 

THANK YOU FOR THIS AMAZING EXPERIENCE!!!!!

P.S. – Just in case you would like to know:

The first song on the show is “Dirty Dynamite”, by the Rock Band ‘KROKUS’.

September 11 – It’s 2016! Time to Remember!

July 28, on FB, Steve Woodall, posted a picture of 9/11.

That’s what he wrote:

Does anybody remember the day when Color, Race, Religion and Political Affiliation didn’t matter? The day when Police and Firefighters were the Biggest Heroes on the planet.. The day when we were all just Americans?? Don’t let it take this … To bring us back together.. Please feel free to share.

Please, remember!! REMEMBER!!

And become ONE NATION AGAIN!!

A. J.’s “Time-Out” – September 2016

Dear ‘Writer’s Treasure Chest’ followers, readers and friends!

 

I’m going to take some time off and will be doing some travelling between

 

September 9 and September 28, 2016.

 

Time off, meeting friends, relaxing, driving around, paying some visits and just having a good time! Sometimes this is just needed!

I won’t be online ever so often during this time, but I’m trying to make sure ‘Writer’s Treasure Chest’ won’t dry out. And I’d be very happy to welcome each one of your comments on my blog posts!

Thank you for all your support, your time and your comments! You rock!!

 

 

 

A.J. Alexander is spreading her wings


 

When I decided to step out into the world of social media I did research. I, as well got tips and tricks, checklists as also read as many “user manuals for beginners” as I could before even getting anything done.

 

In March I started “Writer’s Treasure Chest”. Since then I try to write, research and build as well as find as many helpful blog posts and articles for new authors as I can to share them. I grow with every step I take. This is a once in a lifetime experience and I try to consciously enjoy every single part of the journey. I am discovering a new world, the writer’s world.

 

As so many other newcomers I had not considered the social media work, marketing, sales-preparation and networking hiding behind being a writer. Being a published author will not take the pressure from me to spread word about my work as far and wide as possible. This will need time and great efforts and that’s why I need to spread my wings and fly.

 

It is difficult sometimes to read a list of recommendations, ask another expert or experienced author for more advice and then listen to exactly the opposite. Plus getting a 30 minute speech on why my “How to…”-list will never work.

 

Step by step I opened accounts on:

 

At this moment I work on my personal website. It does have its own domain and is a big piece of work. I want this website to turn out perfect. It will need a little more time and “juggling” with the elements, but I’m sure I’ll be there soon. It needs some fantasy to create a Website before being published. So many authors do have their books on the “My work” page.  But I guess I did well considering the circumstances. I’ll let you all judge in due time.

September 19, 2015 I finally created my Facebook Author page. Of course I used a list with advice. In case you decide to check out the page and give it a “like” I will be grateful. And of course I welcome any advice for changes you might have.

As for now, I took in another challenge: My first Newsletter! I’m excited to announce I will send it out Mid-October. Of course I would love to send it out to as many people as possible. If you’d like to receive my newsletter, I’d be delighted to see you subscribing to my email list:

Please, click the icon to subscribe.

Please, click the icon to subscribe.

I’d love to hear you felt the need to check out if I followed my own researches and did an acceptable “newcomer” newsletter.

Thank you for your subscription!
