New Excerpts up!

I posted new excerpts for my three new fall releases today, so check them out if you have a chance. Also, on my homepage is my cool new rotating GIF, something I learned how to do in Photoshop, thanks to the power of Google, and me pulling my hair out for half the day yesterday . Sylvia Day has these already knocked and had offered to make one for me, but I figured with the rate I bring books out, I'd be bothering the poor woman every five minutes. So I got my own copy of Photoshop with ImageReady, and set out to learn how to do this "easy" thing.

Ha ha. I'm not exactly a graphic designer, so easy and graphics don't go together for me, but I got it together, and I'm quite proud of myself :-) It's probably totally wrong graphics-wise, so if you're a graphic designer, don't tell me all the things I did wrong with my layers, LOL.
(FYI, I posted a link to the rotating GIF here (you can't actually post one on Blogger, just post the image as a URL image) but I'm not sure it will work forever, so I'm just crossing my fingers).

    Love the rotation gif, love the experts even more. Can't wait for more. I have an idea for a book I want to start, but just can't get it all on paper yet. May have to try to make a trip to one of your workshops if I can get caught up on some bills. I love reading your bookd. I especially fell in love with The Legacy. I love that type of small town appeal and history. I think you did a great job!

  3. Thanks so much, Andie! You can always join my online writing group, too, if that works better. RIght now, we're finishing up a workshop on Pacing. The group is called Just Write It at Yahoo Groups and the link is on my For Writers Page on my website.
