Alpha of Glass

Hello you lovely people,

As some of you may know, my name is Alaric and this is my website, this website is going to be used to share my upcoming projects in the world of writing which will include, new titles in my series’, upcoming launches and book cover reveals as well, currently I have 4 books written and I am currently writing my fifth.

I write primarily fantasy and science fiction with drips and drags of romance and mystery hidden throughout the pages, if that is something that interests you them I implore you to stick around and check out my book list – something might grab your fancy.

I have not currently published anything as of yet, but you can read some of my works online on inkitt.com, a writers website used to share unpublished and unedited work to potential readers to gain feedback on how to improve. But be quick, this will be a limited time only thing, as I will be eventually taking them down to publish them properly.

I am hoping to go down the self-publishing route.

Why you ask?

Well, I have always been interested in the publishing world, and there is so many different way to do it now, I thought try my hand at both. I know the traditional way of publishing is super exclusive and hard to get into – so I thought I would gain a following and a roster of books in my repot au, and then try my hand at it later on.

Right now, you can sign up for my mailing list and follow this blog and my social media to make sure you can keep an eye out for new releases and more blog posts like this one explain my journey and progress.

I will be posting sneak peeks into scenes in certain books, but no worries, no spoilers will be shared!

Before you go, please check out my book list – here.

And my last blog post – What I’ve learned through completing NaNoWriMo

I hope you stick around!

Thank you so much for reading,

Alaric

What I’ve learned through completing NaNoWriMo

NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writing Month is coming to an end soon! Babe you finished your 50,000 words?

Here are a few things I’ve learned through completing NaNoWriMo!


1 – You really just have to write for your life

What I mean by this is that, instead of pressing back space and making all the words look super pretty and appealing, you really cannot or have the time to do this. You just have to write and it doesn’t matter if it doesn’t make sense. I tell myself this all the time whilst I resist the urgent need to spell ‘the’ correctly.


2 – You can go back and edit later! Preferably 6 years after this!

That’s a joke by the way. But after finishing writing this book through the wonderful thing that is NaNoWriMo – you really feel this way. But it’s true for the most part – go back and edit WAY after – you won’t get any brownie points for specialised words and pretty fonts.


3 – It has helped me improve as a writer.

Of course it does, it makes me feel (and many others) accomplished that they could write so many *and I mean SO MANY* words in just one month, 31 days. But I really have improved, both in how I write and the productivity I have whilst doing said writing.

I have finished three books in three months – all rough drafts of course, but my productivity is going through the roof and it’s a long stretch but it all started from NaNoWriMo.


4 – To laugh

I have never laughed so much at my writing than I have done with NaNoWriMo.

Weather it be with friends doing word sprints and out hands hurting afterwards from trying to beat one another *yes, we are adults ha!* or just looking back and laughing at the badly written excuse of romance, and the plot deceive that led to that badly written prose.


I could really go on but I think that you should really try out NaNoWriMo if you are starting out with writing or even if you are a seasoned writer… mmmm seasoning *Que Homer Simpson voice*

The main thing to take away from it all is to just enjoy what you are doing – enjoy writing, enjoy gaming, enjoy eating a whole jar of nutella whilst watching sad films about dogs… too real?

But honestly, enjoy life and where ever it may take you.

Hope you have a lovely day,

Alaric
