The Arrowsake Alumni is Dead, Long Live Joe Hunter's Fixers!

Some of the regulars at my website may have noticed that the link to the forum The Arrowsake Alumni is down - there's a very good reason for that.

I'm currently cleaning house and doing a reshuffle of all my sites and networks. The work to update some of them far outweigh their value to both myself and the members, so I've chosen to close down the forum for the time being, until I can find something a little more user friendly.

In the meantime, I intend using my sister blog - The Joe-centric Joe Hunter's Fixers as the new place for up to the minute Joe Hunter news and invite all my readers to come over and join me there. On the site there are already some top short stories by contributors, as well as an original Joe Hunter short story, and interviews with Joe Hunter and Jared 'Rink' Rington to take a look at.

In the future, I will be inviting aspiring authors to send through their original short fiction (crime thrillers/adventure only), to share with Joe's readers, to help them build a fan base of their own.

Why not pop over now - and if you can, stay a while by clicking the 'follow' tab.

I look forward to seeing you all over there.

best wishes

Sad, but fully I understand your reasoning. I think you can have too many responsibilities blog-wise which can impact on essential writing time.

Drop the 'I' - damn typos! :)

Cheers Col - too much spam, not enough time. But I hope to use JHF as a new forum type thingee in blogform for now.

Matt - I never got round to checking 'Arrowsake' out. I honestly think you do enough with TKnC, JHF and your own blog, let alone being a published author. I'm sure evryone will understand. I may have something to send over to you for JHF as well in the next few days, if that's ok? Just finished S&B. Excellent mate and already looking forward to the next one.

Cheers, david,
you're right - I was trying to juggle too many balls...

And, yes, I thought your idea of continuing adding 'thriller' stuff to JHF site was a goodie, so am looking forward to reading what you send through.
cheers for the idea
