Well, it's official . . .

. . . my new website is up and running! I'm not sure yet that I'm crazy about the color scheme--it's a little too Easter-eggish for me--but I'm sure that will eventually change. I plan to buy some original artwork to use on my site, to make it more interesting, more representative of who I am, and to also not chase away any potential male readers due to excessive girlieness.

Pastel hues not withstanding, I think my new site is leaps and bounds above my old site in both appearance and functionality. The very best thing about it is that I can now incorporate my blog into my site. Or, more accurately I suppose, it's the other way around; my website has been incorporated into my blog, because that's how Blogger works.

As you can see from my previous posts imported over from LiveJournal (below) (all three of them), I haven't exactly been what you might call a frequent blogger. I'm hoping this new website will help remedy that. I'm not sure yet how frequently I'll post; I don't want blogging to interfere with my fiction writing endeavors since they will always have top priority for me. But I do at least promise to post more often than my old once-every-year-or-five schedule.

So, I hope you'll join me-- subscribe if you'd like!--and comment from time to time as I share with you this long and winding journey to what I hope will someday be publication.

And let me know what you it too Easter-eggish?


  1. What kind of original artwork are you looking for?

  2. Ok...your comment submission process is a tad ridiculous .....just sayin''s like coming back to the states from overseas......

    1. I don't have a definite thing in mind already for the artwork. It's one of those I'll-know-it-when-I-see-it kind of things I suppose.

      Ideally I would love to eventually commission a piece, or group of smaller pieces, representing imagery from my writing. Until I have a book deal though, it's difficult to justify spending that kind of money on something just because I want it. Any money I spend on my writing world should still be going directly to improving my craft at this point. So for now, I guess I'm on the lookout for something not too expensive that uses rich colors and has a lot of texture. Most likely something abstract, but maybe not, depending on what it is. Just something that speaks to me, if that makes any sense. And nothing overtly girly, for the reason stated above.

      As to my comment submission process: What all hoops did it make you jump through? I don't want commenting to be difficult for anyone.
