New Website!

I've just redesigned my website! Check it out if you have a chance here. PLEASE let me know if you spot any problems!!

Also, I'm trying out a new blog template, but it seems to be messing with my images. I'm hoping it'll correct itself soon, otherwise, well...I don't know. I will take action of some kind. Blogger, beware!!

HUGE congrats to the incredible Golden Heart and RITA finalists! I've sent messages to many of those talented writers, but news like that is worth celebrating again and again.

Hope you all have a wonderful start to the week. It's Spring Break here (yay!), but I won't be doing anything too wild or exciting. What about you????

Hi Marilyn, *waves* yay for Spring Break and sunshine! They are teasing us by saying we might have temps in the 70's this week! :O

I'm hopping over to your website now for a quick looksee- I bet it's fab. Have a great week!

Robin said...

Love your new website! Congrats!

You don't like pickled herring or anchovies? What's wrong with you? LOL Just kidding! I'm with ya there!

Happy Spring break!

Edie Ramer said...

Your website looks terrific! I wish I had your talent.

I'll be doing the usual this week: writing, taking care and feeding my dogs, cat and husband. We're having his family over on Easter Sunday, so I'll have to clean and cook.

Marilyn Brant said...

Nancy, thanks! Temps in the 70s sounds like heaven!! Hope you have a great week, too ;).

Thank you, Robin!! My husband loves pickled herring...and I just don't get it! Glad I'm not the only one--LOL.

Edie, thanks so much for taking a look at the website. Believe me, it took a lot of trial and error... My husband's dad is coming over for Easter Sunday, too, and we've already begun cleaning (the place is a MESS--sigh--so it'll take us a week to get it back in order :). Hope you have a fabulous week!

Maria Geraci said...

Looks fabulous, Marilyn! Very clean and the colors and yummy. Congrats!

Meredith said...

What a beautiful website! Job well done, Marilyn! Best of luck with your upcoming release! It looks fantastic!

Book Junkie said...

Hi Marilyn!

It looks awesome! Congrats!

Amethyst Willow said...

Oooh it looks super lovely. And your photo! You look so glam...in a "I am a shit-hot-author" kind of way ;)

Dissertation this week for me :( And spending Easter away from home for the second year in a row :(

Marilyn Brant said...

Maria, thanks! I was hoping it would be bright and easy to read ;).

Thank you, Meredith!!! And I *really* appreciate the good luck, too! (Every new release is both exciting and a little scary. :)

Brande, *hug!* thank you!!

LOL about the "glam" photo, Amythest!! Sending you GOOD VIBES for the dissertation (I *know* you'll do well!) and wishing you a Happy Easter celebration for whenever you're able to get back home next... Hang in there! xo

L.A. Mitchell said...

It's very girly and pretty. Love it, M :)

Pamela Cayne said...

First your book covers, now your website--everything you touch is just beautiful! Congrats! (And love your lovely GH photo on the Bio page!)

Marilyn Brant said...

L.A., thank you! I'm fond of "girly" :).

Pamela, thanks, my friend ;). Wish I could take credit for the book covers (*bowing to Kensy's art dept.*), but I'm so glad you liked the website!

Marilyn Brant said...

p.s. Pam~did you notice on the Books page the photo in the right sidebar of Jane on the shelves?! That was one of the shots you sent me! *hug*

Kwana said...

The new website is so nice. I love it. Looks like were both is the new mode for spring.

Maureen McGowan said...

Looks great, Marilyn!

Pamala Knight said...

Marilyn the new website looks fabulous.

Congratulations! We're lazing around on Spring Break too, doing the "stay-cation" thing--going to museums, picnic in the park, seeing a movie AND (my boys least favorite thing) spring cleaning, lol.

Hope to see you soon!

Marilyn Brant said...

Kwana~loved the new look of your blog, too! Those spring impulses to change things up just can't be denied, can they? :)

Maureen, thank you!! And congrats, again, you awesome lady, on that GH final!

Pamala~I *so* know what you're talking about with the spring cleaning thing...sigh. We have MUCH to do still to straighten the mess we've made over these past few months and clear out the clutter. I'd rather be visiting the Barbados (LOL), but it'll feel good to get this all done.

Hope you all have a very Happy Easter/Passover!

Marilyn Brant said...

Thanks, SPJ!!!! xoxoxoxoxo See you sooooon! ;)

Lindsey said...

The new website looks great and I haven't spotted any problems! I love the pink, it reminds me of how grateful I am that spring is finally here. It doesn't get incredibly sunny out here in Washington but there are a few odd moments when I can sit outside with a book and soak up some rays (not that it does anything to my pale skin, haha). I hope you're doing well!

Brittany Roshelle said...

Wonderful website! I can't wait for the Spring to stay around for awhile!

Virginia C said...

Your "new" website looks great! Easy to navigate, and loads quickly even with my creaky dial-up connection. Love the butterfly!
