Time for a new website and blog!

February 12, 2017

I've been a published author for 17 years and this is my third website.  So, I guess about every 8 years or so it's time for a new site!  I'm right on schedule.

 

Back in "the old days" (2000 when my first book was released), I hired a web developer to create my very first site.  It was written in FrontPage (a Microsoft product) and I had a very generous author friend who taught me how to maintain and update it myself.  Which I did, every week.  Me and FrontPage were getting along fine!  Until Microsoft decided to discontinue FrontPage.

 

So I hired another web developer to redesign me a brand new site in WordPress.  We kept a lot of the same content from the old site, but it was fresher, newer, more modern.  WordPress and I developed a love/hate relationship.  It was much more complex and difficult to manipulate than FrontPage.  I eventually got the hang of it, but it was cumbersome for me, so I didn't update the site NEARLY as often anymore.  When I released a new book I'd update the site -- that was about it.  About three months ago I got the dreaded email from my hosting company: "your website is infected with malware."  After calling the hosting company and talking options for over an hour I realized it was time to trash the infected site and start all over.

 

So, take three!  The GREAT thing about starting over is that I can dump a bunch of old baggage.  This site only focuses on my current genre and brand -- Christian fiction grounded in today's modern world.  You won't find any of my earlier non-inspirational books here.  In fact, I took them off the market.  They're not even for sale anymore!  As an inspirational romance author, I'm ALL IN!  :)

 

In addition, technology now offers WIX, which to me, is the best of all possible worlds.  It's relatively EASY, it offers tons of options and it's modern.  So, WIX it is!  I hope you enjoy my new site and I hope you come back often!  I promise I'll try to give you something worth coming back for!
