Inspired By Website Design + Special Giveaway
I’m thrilled to be unveiling my new website and updated blog in conjunction with my Thursday’s Children post. I’ll tell you, building this website was more inspiring than I’d assumed it would be. Choosing colors and images made me think long and hard about what connects each my stories to the others, what elements lay at the heart of all my writing, what emotions I want people to feel, what sparks my creativity and much more. I even ended up tweaking my WIP after finding one of the images. I almost don’t dare say it because the idea’s a little overwhelming, but designing this website helped me get a clearer idea of my brand.
Okay, I’m not going to ramble on. But I’d love to have you check out my new website and let it speak for itself. Here it is!
To celebrate, I’m having a giveaway.
As some of you know, Anie, the main character in my story MOONHILL, grew up dealing antiques with her father. She loves nothing more than getting a good deal on a cool vintage treasure, especially retro clothes and shoes. In Anie’s honor, I’m giving away a $25.00 gift card to EBay.
Also, I’m giving away a second prize. Since Xuni.com who designed my website also designed Laura Anderson’s new site, I’m giving away a copy of Laura’s book THE BOLEYN KING. Some of you lost out on my last giveaway for this book, this is your second and last chance to win a copy.
Here’s how it works.
This giveaway is open to everyone: writing friends, new friends, critique partners, relatives, and anyone who likes to read. I will choose the two winners on July 10th.
To enter, simply join the mailing list on my website and leave a comment here. Promise, I’ll only be sending out a couple newsletters a year, so your email won’t be barraged with junk. Best of all, there will more giveaways and special news available only to newsletter subscribers. All followers of this blog will automatically be giving a second chance to win.
One last note, Xuni Design is amazing and wonderful to work with, not just their skills, but also their passion for website design and the genuine concern they have for their clients. If you’re thinking of upgrading or building a new site, check them out here
