New Website

Hi Everyone,

I'm so excited to finally get my new website up. It took weeks of work and help from many people. I owe huge thanks to Lee R. Morris, my hubby, the support group at GoDaddy, and Microsoft Support. Without all of these people my website could never have gone live.

Last year my blog at my old site was attacked by hackers and had to be closed down. During that time, I kept hoping I could save my old website and get my blog back up but I decided it would never happen. Once, I made that decision I decided to build my own website even though it took a tremendous amount of time from my writing.

Now, that's it done I can finish my wip (work in progress for you non-writers). I will be back to blogging every week starting next Monday.

Thanks for your comments on my website.

Sandy

girl on your site looks like Joanie from Happy Days....

Christie Craig said...

Great site.

The girl does sort of look like Joanie. But overall the site has a spooky quality that I think probably matches your writing.

Great job.

Nice website. Suggestions...where you had "my news", it was hard to read since the background and words were both dark. And, maybe give some info on Addiction to entice readers. Even just a paragraph to give hints about what's inside your book.
Lots of work, but you did a great job.

K.T. and Christie,

Thanks for both of your comments on the girl looking like Joanie.

Christie, I'm glad you think the front page looks spooky. It's supposed to be mysterious and scary. Smile.

Tara,

As soon as I know what I'm doing I would love to do a link exchange. Smile.

Thanks for your suggestions, Marianne. This is going to be a work in progress.

I may have to wait a bit on putting a blurb up for my book since that is going to change. When I get the okay from my new publisher, I'll put something up.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs,
Sandy

Thanks for stopping by, Linda. Yes, the new cover is very good. I have Buffi, the cover artist at Eirelander Publishing to thank for that.

Yes, my website was a lot of work. Everyone who makes their website knows that. lol

Sandy said...

Thanks, Renee. That website was a pain, but worth it. Grin.

Sandy said...

Thanks, Stacey. The website was well worth the time I spent on it, but I guarantee if I hadn't had a lot of help it wouldn't have been done. Smile.

I love my new cover, too.

Sandy said...

Thanks for stopping by, Laura.

Sandy said...

Carol and Vanessa,

Thanks so much for stopping by. I'm glad you think my website looks mysterious since that was my intent. Smile.

Sandy said...

Thanks, Chiron.

Without Lee's help, I would never have made it. Next will be the photo album page, but first I have to do some writing and edits. lol
