Web Site Revamping and Mysteries, Murder & More Blog Now on Kindle

My regular visitors may have noticed that things look a little different lately. In mid-December, I did some major restructuring to my web site and blog. My blog now has a menu bar at the top, with links to my web site. Since blogs tend to draw more traffic than web sites, it made sense to better connect the two by adding a menu bar to the blog. That way, new visitors can more easily learn about my books – which is why this blog exists in the first place.

If you’re an avid Kindle user, you can also now subscribe to this blog on Kindle. I recently learned that Amazon was seeking blogs to offer for Kindle users. My first thought was, why would anyone pay to follow a blog, however, Amazon believes Kindle readers will subscribe to blogs because of the convenience. Some of my author friends began offering a Kindle subscription to their blogs, and I decided to do the same. In 2011, I’ll be hosting a mock season of my fictional reality show Sink or Swim, in which literary characters will compete during the year. I’ll also continue offering the “What were you (or your character) doing 25 years ago feature?” on a less frequent basis. From time-to-time, I will offer giveaways and post about what I’m reading. And of course in addition to the Kindle option, you can still follow via Google Friend Connect, Networked Blogs, Goodreads and RSS feeds. All choices can be found in the sidebars.

My web site has also gone a significant revamping. I loved the previous design, however, it was becoming impossible to maintain by myself due to the difficulty of the software program. Now that my career has evolved into multiple books, the web site needed maintenance much more frequently. I’m pleased that the new format will be easy for me to maintain without any help. I hope you’ll also take a few minutes to check it out. The Books tab will lead you to short descriptions of my current books, Twenty-Five Years Ago Today, Sink or Swim, and The Flag Keeper, and bring you to links for longer descriptions, book trailers, reviews, and book club discussion questions.

The Store tab features retail links for the print and e-book versions of my books. Also via this tab, you can access my Amazon store which features authors who have been showcased on my blog in the past. As an Amazon affiliate, I receive a small commission on sales made via any of the Amazon links on my web site, even if buyers purchase something else entirely such as a pair of jeans…this year, the commission from the odds and ends purchased through my Amazon links was enough to buy me an ink cartridge for my printer and some computer paper. Not much, but I appreciate any opportunities to defray expenses. So by all means, purchase your jeans after clicking on one of my Amazon links! Receiving notification of a small deposit into my account a couple times per year, when enough purchases add up for Amazon to issue payment, is always a pleasant surprise.

You can also check out my list of upcoming News and Events, including an Author Chat on Library Thing, future giveaways, and the Sink or Swim Blog Tour. As always, thanks for visiting!
