Update

I was trying to do an update once a month. Looks like that hasn’t happened for a while, so today’s the day. There is a whole lot going on, and still more to look forward to, and I’m thrilled by it all. I’m feeling very positive about what’s happening and the things I’ve got planned. Now to put in the time and make everything happen.

  • Whirlpool : edits are done and I’m just waiting for approval to show you the amazing cover.
  • Falling, Freestyle : almost finished writing (this week I hope, maybe even today)
  • Faetful : Waiting to see the cover and get a release date
  • Fired Up : edits are done and I’m just waiting for a release date
  • Begun work on Turn It Up

Over the next month I’ll be busy with new things like:

  • Outlining (HA!) the 2nd and 3rd books in Pacific Passion series
  • Edits on Wolf Tracks
  • Getting Turn It Up done
  • Starting to plan some promo for the release of Under the Northern Lights, my first print book!
  • Getting ready for Whirlpool’s release in August

Part of the reason I need to get going on promo early is because I’ve signed up to attend the Romance Writers of America conference happening in late July in Orlando. I’ll be returning from the RWA event the day Under the Northern Lights releases.

Which is kinda cool in itself, I think.

I haven’t put them up on the coming soon page (which I will have a question about in a minute) but there are two more print books going to be releasing in 2011. The second anthology for the Wolfies-Under the Midnight Sun, and an anthology of the two Forces of Nature. Breaking Waves should be June-ish, and the wolfies in the summer again. I know, a long way off, but I still thought I should mention them.

So a question- any suggestions or tweaks for my website? I’ve tried to keep things up to date and easy to manoeuver, but with 12 releases out now and a few more on the coming soon page, I wondered what you thought. Should the coming soon be limited to just the next couple of releases? Then I could add the blurbs etc right to the page. What about the home page? A short update there and just the coming soon and most recent release?

I was also thinking of tweaking the books page–with 12 books now I thought it might be better to have smaller pictures so you can see them all at once. I think most of my problems are from having so many books close together, but I’d liike to make sure touring my site is easy for you all. Oh, and I added a couple of ‘inspirational’ items to the Tidal Wave and Whirlpool pages, if you want to take a peek.

And I’m obviously feeling chatty!

Nowadays there is lot of unforeseen circumstance which force men to take remedies. You can order medicines directly your office. In these latter days the stock you can find in online pharmacy is actually high. Some medications are as a rule used to treat many types of bacteria, such as tonsillitis and infections of the throat. Other ones are used to treat diabetes. Cialis is a remedy used to treat divers afflictions. What do you have to know about cialis order online? Presently many families search for the exact keyword ordering cialis online on the Internet. Perhaps you already read something about it. Having erectile dysfunction can beyond doubt complicate romance. What can cause erectile disfunction? A row of psychological issues can produce erectile disfunction. What should you discuss with a physician before taking Cialis? Any curing may cause dangerous side effects. Sometimes side effects can be actually dangerous. Talk to your pharmacist about the proper disposal of your remedy.

Hey Vivian, All I can say is wow! Was very excited to see Turn It Up :) As far as your question goes, here’s my preferences when visiting an author’s website. -On the home page I like to see the newest release and a greeting that lets me know what’s going on and point me in interesting directions. Like “I have a new contest, check out my blog…” Or “I have lots going on, check out my Coming Soon” -Books page….smaller covers would be fine as long as you can still see the details, but what I don’t like is… Read more »

Wow- alot of things coming up, very exciting to see. As to what I like on an author’s website – I have to agree with Booklover in the comments above. I mostly look for 2 things on any author’s website and those are: 1. The site is easy to navigate- I don’t have to click 5 million times to get where I want. 2. The site is well organized- I hate to find the coming soon pages full of books that are already released and find none of the coming soon books there. I also like to be able to… Read more »

I cannot wait to see what you come up with. Do not make the book covers too small we still have to be able to see the steamy covers. ;)

Hi Vivian. I can’t think of anything the others people haven’t already said. Except when people put music on their pages that really slows down my computer. Otherwise what I have seen of your site is really nice.
