Welcome to the new and improved AEHodge.com! I’ve revamped the website with a new look and feel and I’m giving this blog thing a fresh start.
The new layout is responsive and easily read via smartphone, Kindle, or other e-reader, which meshes well with the content I’m gonna provide: fiction, fiction, and more fiction.
Previously, I focused my blogging around my quest to achieve financial independence so I can “retire” from my day job in order to write full-time. I certainly haven’t given up that goal; I still intend to quit my day job and write full-time as soon as I’m financially able. Since it’s a big part of my life, I’m sure my quest for early retirement is something I’ll mention occasionally.
However, it will no longer be a focus. I’m not interested in writing a personal finance blog right now, and I’ve removed those elements. There are other bloggers who’ve covered early retirement/financial independence more thoroughly already, including the very popular Mr. Money Mustache and Early Retirement Extreme. Both blogs have been influential in my own quest for financial independence, and I recommend them to anyone who wishes to free himself from the nine-to-five grind.
As I said, the new focus of Fiction Fugitive will be fiction. I’ll be posting tons of juicy content on the blog for free, including short stories, exclusive serials, bonus content and vignettes from the worlds of my published works, and even free novels! In between, as side dishes, not the main affair, I’ll write behind-the-scenes insights into my life and writing career, give pointers about independent publishing, announce special offers, and more.
So stay tuned, and get that e-reader ready!
Feel free to share what you think of the new focus and the new layout in the comments below–and if you have any suggestions for content you’d like to see, let me know.
