Change of Blog Format and Autumn Chickens -Not Fade Away.’

I’m considering changing the format of my blog and rather than post short stories, to concentrate on providing more variety relating to my work as an author. blogger 26.4.20Since I started the site, approximately 4 1/2 years ago (how time flies!) there have been approximately 1,000 individual visitors who either follow or like my posts, but very few leave comments. It’s difficult to know whether the posts hit the right note, or if there is a better way to communicate with followers.

I would really appreciate your response to a short survey so I know what YOU want to see. If you enjoy the short stories you might be interested to know I post a new one every Friday evening, around 5 p.m. UK time on my Facebook author page https://www.facebook.com/Voinks.writer.author

Now I’m feeling guilty for not writing a story. 😀 

Here’s one which I was delighted to have included in the April edition of the Autumn Chickens online magazine. 
Autumn Chickens ‘Not Fade Away.’

It’s also included in my latest book ‘Listen to Love’ which you can find here:

    1. Hey, Camilla. Great to see you here, and thanks for commenting. For some reason I never realised you were from the ‘other side of the pond.’ 😀 It’s also raised another question in my mind – Do readers/bloggers relate my author name with my original pen name/blog?
      I hope you and Lillian enjoy the book, and thanks again for visiting. x
