My web site is up and running!

After a few design changes (ok, more than a few) my sister and I have my web site ready for the world to see. Actually, Jenn (my sister) did all the work so if you like it then she gets all the credit and if you don't like it you can blame it on me since I had the final say. But I love it so I hope all of you will too. I did my best to pick something that reflected the direction I'm heading in as a writer, and just like my blog shows, I have a thing for trees. Which anyone who has beta read Sage knows.

One more note before you go check the site out. If you spot anything off please let me know. We did our best to make sure the fonts worked on all computers and the links worked but in case they don't please please shoot me an email and let me know or leave a comment on here too. Another a writing related note I'm on the fence on keeping Abbey's direct thoughts in italics or not and will probably ditch it but if you'd like to chime in on that please fee free. I'd love to know if there is anything more you think I could add or change. Feedback is crucial at this stage and you are my test subjects!

Now before I steal any more of your time, go check out the site. I thank you in advance for stopping by. So exciting for me! Pretty cool we have it ready in time for my writing anniversary month.

I like it, Becky! The graphics look nice. The font is unique, but I have to admit, it might be a little hard for some people to read (see top of SAGE). And, I think you should leave Abbey's direct thoughts in italics. Just my two cents.

It is awesome! Tell your sister that she is amazing. By the way, Angels on the Moon is on my playlist for my book, too.

I liked the site. Good job. The first chapter really begins to build the tension.

Thanks everyone! I'm soooo glad you like it. It's such a tough thing to decide on a theme that will define you as a writer but i think this works for with my style. Ohhh kinda makes me sound dark and stormy then. ; ) I'm SO not but my writing can be!

Thanks again, I love me fellow writers and bloggers!

I love it! The home page is totally rockin'. I'm adding your site to the list of links to other writers on mine as soon as I get the chance.

Congrats on the website. It looks really cool, and I am generally picky about photography/art/design.

About the Point-of-View, it is always good to be considerate about the reader. If it helps to have thoughts in italics for the readers, then it doesn't hurt.

Your site looks great! I really should get one up and going. I like the color scheme you've chosen, and nice touch with the music list!

i love the site, you and Jenn did a great job!

I have two recommendations however:
1. you should have your blog open in a seperate window or tab or something rather than instead of the site.
2. i don't know whether it's just my screen, but to me it looked like the part for sage was finished after the plalist. not quite sure what you could do about that, but it'd be a shame if it looks teh sam eto othe rpeople and as a result they don't read your first chapter. (which is kicking butt by the way!)

But I love,love, love the spooky atmosphere.
