Buccaneer Blogfest - Introduction


The Buccaneer Blogfest has begun. Running from the 9th of July to the 3rd of August, three posts a week, new theme each week.
This week, is intro week. So ...

Hello all, my name is Aldrea Alien. I reside at what I like to think of as the bottom of the world, otherwise known as New Zealand.
I'm both a writer and a reader of fantasy works, though I'll branch out into other genres if the story takes my fancy. ^_^
My love for books started about the time I wrote my first story, The Rogue King, some fifteen years ago and, after finishing it, found I’d been bitten by the writing bug. Since then, I have not stopped writing (or plotting) whatever strange stories I come up with. As of this moment, I’ve three completed stories and eight WiPs in various stages of plotting, writing or rewriting.

I'm not one for too many points of interaction, sometimes it gets a bit much for me to hop round all the blogs I follow, keep up with real life and then find some quiet time to write, but I'll occasionally tweet.

So now you know some more about me. It’s time for you to surf the linky list below and be introduced to some other people cruising the net.

  1. Hi Aldrea. Though I've been following you for a while, it's nice to know a little more about you. I love the artwork you use for your books? Do you create it yourself?

    1. Thank you. ^_^ I do create them.
      It's done using DAZ Studio, a free 3D rendering program (of course just the program's free, almost everything else isn't >_>)

    1. I try my hardest to stick to one story at a time, but sometimes you just get an idea and need to write it down then and there or lose it.

  3. Yeah, social networking has gotten a bit over-enthusiastic, I don't blame you for 'keeping it lean', I swear, it's a second job sometimes.

    1. Is it ever. The first half of my day is taken up by keeping up. ^_^

  4. Sounds like you have a lot in the works. That's a good thing! You're right, keeping up with social media can be a bit tough. I just do what I can. I'm #5 on the linky list:)
