So first thanks again to everyone who offered thoughts and suggestions re: the website. On Sam’s suggestion, I checked out Moonfruit.com and started playing around there last night.
So. This is my old site.
This is the one I’m playing around with. I’m going to add the “Books” page, with clickable images of all my covers, which send you to the book’s individual page with reviews and excerpts and buy links, which I couldn’t figure out how to do really well on the old site. It’s very, very easy to import images and put them wherever you want on the Moonfruit template.
The biggest problem with the new site is, I can’t import my rose tile background from the old one (I can’t import any graphic backgrounds to Moonfruit, as far as I can tell) and I can’t import the cool background from the site to my blog here (can’t get an html code for it.) Moonfruit does a blog but I like blogger (despite the &%@$! with Beta) and don’t want to switch.
So essentially, I need to either switch to a plain background on the site to match a new plain background here, or they have to not match. Which I don’t know how I feel about that.
Eventually I’ll be able to get a cool graphic logo to put on the top of the blog and site to unify them at least that much, but for the moment I can’t afford it.
So. If anyone has a minute, could you check them out and tell me what you think?
Also, as you’ll see if you have a look at the “News” thing on the new site, I’m very happy to report another sale to EC! My crit partner/writing partner/most excellent buddy Anna J. Evans and I wrote a paranormal menage this winter called “Demon’s Triad”, and it will be the first in a series called “Dangerous Magic”. We are incredibly excited because the book ROCKS, seriously.
So that’s four sales to EC for me!
