Get ready my dear Gentle Reader, for the website revamp! It’s been percolating for over a year now, but the time has come. I needed to upgrade to a website better able to handle the fact that I have more than one book out. Silly me, I thought the old one would last more then four years. Or I thought I wouldn’t write this fast. Or I just got terribly distracted. Anyway, once it is done I will made the Big Announcement and then I will probably ask for all your help in checking it for flaws and trying to break it. Fun times.

I am also taking this opportunity to revamp my blogging platform. From now on Blogspot will be my primary blog and LJ my backup. Hopefully, very little should change your end, but some of the code and images may be janky on LJ as the images will be hosted elsewhere and it may take me a while to figure it out. This is not something I can change, I need to save myself time when blogging and LJ is too slow to upload. I appreciate your patience during this trying time.
I promise I’ll be staying on top of comments and everything else on both venues (and Goodreads) so please know I have not abandoned you.

What else is going on? Lots of writing. Lots of planning for up-coming events. Too much heat. You know, exciting life of an author.
I was informed over twitter recently from the lovely mybookishways that Soulless is on ALA’s list of Sure Bets for Fantasy. I can never get over how awesome Librarians are to me and my books. Love the librarians! My heroes.
