Welcome! The first thing you should know is I’ve decided to start an external blog called Writing After Dark. To get to my blog, just click the Blog tab in the main menu or subscribe to the feed by clicking on Blog at the bottom of the screen. Once you’re there you’ll get all my personal thoughts, as well as background on characters and insight on research for my books. I’m going to use the blog setup here (titled News!) to share general updates on things as they happen.
You might be wondering why I’d go through the hassle of setting up an extra blog on wordpress.com when I have the option to blog directly from this site. The answer is simple: more customization and a chance to get people interested in what I’m doing while waiting for this website to be ready. In fact, if you’re reading this there’s a good chance you’ve already come from my blog.
The idea started from reading author Nova Ren Suma’s blog and liking the way she had everything set up. I like when things are visually appealing (in other words, pretty). While I take pride in the look and feel* of the site, when I went to blog, the space seemed plain and standard. I wanted it to have a distinct look and feel too.
I hope to figure out how to put together an email newsletter soon, so that all the information I share in both places can be simplified into one email and I’m not cluttering up your inbox. Feel free to interact with me at any of the social media links provided or send me a message! Until next time…
