One of the things I enjoy about being a part of a community of Christian authors is how helpful the writers are to one another. For example, take my sisters here on the Inspired by Life and Fiction blog. When the person managing my website retired and I was flailing around trying to figure out what to do, authors Becky Wade, Karen Witemeyer, and Jody Hedlund quickly responded and recommended their own website designers to me. Then, Tamera Alexander informed me that our own Robin Lee Hatcher (who manages our blog here), also designs websites. I don’t know how she does it all–writes books, keeps us going here, and designs websites for people like Francine Rivers, but she does. So, after checking out all the recommendations (all looked good!) I decided to go with Robin, since I am most familiar with her, plus she’s tech savvy and so helpful and patient with someone like me who’s not. At all.
I liked my old site, don’t get me wrong, but it wasn’t mobile friendly and hadn’t been freshened up in too many years. Worse, it featured a very large and dated photo of me, and girls, I only wish I still looked that young! So yes, a smaller author photo was called for. Thankfully those book covers still look as good as ever. 🙂
So, thanks to my Inspired by Life and Fiction friends–and especially thanks to Robin–my website has received its much-needed makeover. (Probably time I followed suit…)
The updated site is mobile friendly, so it will be easier to view on your phone or tablet, as well as on your computer. It has several other new features I like as well. Doesn’t Robin do nice work? I think so.
To celebrate my updated site, I thought it would be fun to offer a giveaway. To enter, simply visit my website, then select CONTACT to email me with a comment about something you like about the website, or a suggestion for future content you’d like to see. I’ll draw a winner from the emails I receive.
The PRIZE: your choice of any book from Lifeway.com (up to $16), plus these adorable Pride and Prejudice and Jane Eyre page flags.
Thanks for helping me celebrate!
(Note: Giveaway ends 6/22/17. A winner living outside the U.S. may choose a book from a supplier near them to avoid customs duties and other fees.)
