New look and layout for the blog

So the blog looks more fun now, yay!

Layout change
I retired the old template and decided to go with a standard one from Blogger's selection. Didn't need to really sit down and customize it, just needed for it to be pretty. Red was pretty enough.

The blog, which is where I dump info about my books, writing, and other stuff (maybe pie, as the tag above says), is still the main focus of the site. But there are tabs now that quickly lead to my contact info, the books, and...

Character pages!
I've taken my Pinterest/Polyvore inclinations and have started creating boards and looks for my characters, starting with the pages dedicated to Ellie and Kimmy. Jasmine, Carla and Hannah (and soon, Julie) coming soon!

Goodreads Author Widget
If I did it right, it should be showing up as the first item on the right sidebar. Looks nice, and is an easy way to see all the books and visit their pages on Goodreads.

Mailing List signup button
I moved the signup form for the Mysterious Mailing List to the sidebar, right underneath the Goodreads widget. It was a mailing list for Interim Goddess of Love news and exclusive info, but now it'll be just for any news and exclusive info. :)

New title
Publishing in Pajamas isn't just the title of the series of talks I've been giving -- it's what this blog will be about too, and is a bit of an advocacy now. Have decided that make that clear in the banner.


  1. Congrats on the new blog image and name! :) I have yet to meet your other characters, but I will soon. ;)

  2. Verry purty! How'd you get the Good Reads widget to work?

  3. @Monique - Thank you!
    @Iggy - Have you fiddled around with author widgets? I added this to the sidebar using HTML gadget.
