Color Me Thrilled!
Saturday, July 24th, 2010

If you’re reading this on my blog, you know I have a new website design. Woohoo! No, there wasn’t a thing wrong with the old, but I like to change it up now and then because I get bored with the same ole thing. I invite you to browse through my site if it’s been a while, because I’m constanty updating content. If you find a link or something that looks wonky (we can’t catch everything!), just let me know!

I should have a grand opening party or something, and run a scavenger contest to make you look around. Maybe I’ll start that Monday and run it for a week. What would you like for a prize(s)?

The little one goes home today. Even despite her running like a wild thing through the house, I managed quite a bit of work yesterday. My EC editor, Mary, asked me to add words to A Long Howl Goodnight to bring it up to novella length. I wrote an epilogue. I also added pages to a new Western novella. I have one really grumpy hero (there are a pair of brothers), which I find very, very sexy. And she’s the second writer-heroine I’ve had. It’s strange, but when I cast a writer, I somehow reflect a very accurate internal picture of me in the story.

Let me know what you think of the new site! And let me know what you’d like as prizes for a scavenger hunt! ~DD

    Wow Delilah, it’s beautiful. Congrats. It pops as soon as you arrive here. I love it. :-D
    Pizes I think would be great are books and /or gift cards.

    The site looks great. Now to run around clicking everything. I’ve been working on my own projects and slowly making progress. We’ll see if I make any more today since there a good chance we’re getting the dogs and the kids don’t know it yet.

    Scavenger hunts are always fun. Maybe you should rope your sister into it too. I agree with Valerie as well books, Gift Cards or maybe even a chance to name a character or something like that.

    Jenn! What an ambiguous thing to say. It’s kind of like telling a guy’s sister that you thought he was “interesting”. Fits me to a tee? Garish. Over the top. Wicked to the core? Okay! I’ll own that! :lol:

    Valerie! The guy’s the best part even with all the lovely art, isn’t he? God, does anyone like that really exist? Thanks for the suggestions!

    Brandy! I’ll have to do a big one. Gifts card, check! Books, check!

    Love the new look. It’s so shiny and new.

    A scavenger hunt sounds great. Books and e-book store gift cards would be my suggestions.

    I really like the new site. I love the bright colors (I’m a purple fanatic) since it makes everything feel so perky. I like the release dates/covers on the side to keep me excited for your upcoming releases. Everything just feels more upbeat.

    As for prizes…gift cards for Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Bath & Body Works, Victoria’s Secret, and Starbucks would be great. Other great items would be candles, chocolate, perfume, nail polish/manicure kits. Anything girly would be wonderful.

    Rasha! Thanks so much, dear! I think it’s more up to date now, but you know, fashion changes with the season. So I made sure I loved the colors and the design enough I could stick with it for a couple or three years! (It’s expensive to do these overhauls!)

    Cindy! Glad you like the idea. I’ll work on it tomorrow, then!

    Julie! Thanks for adding your two cents!

    Knicole! Thanks! Wish I could claim the credit. All I did was tell Frauke at Croco Designs what I wanted. I said, I’d love some images included in the design: castle, knight, chalice, wolf, dragon—I had no clue how she’s manage it, but she did without my silly list taking over.

    Lisa! Thanks for the suggestions.

    Jeanene! What I love about the jeans, other than the sexiness is that it and the colors are the only thing that kind of link to my contemporaries. It’s hard to build a site for someone who genre hops as badly as I do!

    Joder! I agree, it’s very upbeat! Makes me happy whenever I open the page. Thanks so much for the prize suggestions!

    Estella! Folks seem to like the purple. I like any variation of color that has a red as its base–red, orange, purple. My office has all these colors. I have yellow walls, but then touches of hot pink, fushia, purple, wine. You would think it wouldn’t work, but everyone loves my office.

    Sue! Enjoy the tour of the new digs!

    Maeve! Thank you, ma’am!

    Love the new look. Hot guy and purple. Yay! :-D
    Can’t think of anything to offer as prizes that hasn’t already been suggested, except to name a character after a winner. Could be a secondary character, wouldn’t have to be a main character.

    Beth! I think naming a character sounds like a wonderful idea!
