So long black and white web page, hello living color! I finally got the art for my book cover and web banner and wasted no time updating the old black and white web color scheme to something more colorful and hopefully way cooler. And with a little help from some CSS tutorials, I was able to adjust the transparency and border regions to make it pop even more. There’s little more satisfying right now than finally having the web page look author-y. Another stress item scratched off the list of things to do when publishing for the first time.
Also good news – I’ve reached chapter 20. At roughly 74k words, it’s now at that point where all hell breaks loose!
So last week I accidentally discovered live streaming of cable on my Xfinity site when I went to watch the season opener of Game of Thrones. So cool! (And yes, I am aware it’s been there a while, silly, slow me!)
Now I decided that was so cool, I’m going to do it again. Except this time – it’s dead Jim! I searched the internet and others report the same issue. Other channels work but HBO doesn’t. Hmmm… Coincidence? I think not!
This is proof positive that GRRM has found another victim in his quest to kill off people (or channels) in exciting ways! His pen is indeed mightier than the sword…or the internet!
I guess I’ll have to *gasp* watch Game of Thrones on my TV tonight.
I think I’ve finally figured out how to set the default page and pretty links within the WordPress plugin so the web site no longer defaults to the blog page. I’m posting this to make sure I didn’t screw up the blog link to Amazon. (Baby steps!!)
I just wrote this on a whim based on a forum discussion I read. A cute little story about two kids dealing with a sudden appearance of seven foot scaly lizard headed merserpents.
I have now tied this RSS feed to Amazon’s Author Central – woot!
I just set up this site, having converted it from a gamer guild site that was defunct to something more author-y. Loads to learn, but hopefully it will look spiffy at some point!
