You might have noticed . . .

things have changed around here. Welcome to my new website! However since this is sort of the testing period for the site–the powers-that-be, aka the webmistress who rules–has asked that I keep these new digs secret! Well, as much as you can keep a secret on the Internet.

Believe me, I’m having a hard time not shouting the news from the rooftops in my excitement over the new look. But since you’ve found the new site, please take all the time you want to look over the new features, including this blog, the 411 in Connected Books, the very cool Events page, and an expanded FAQ. So look away, and then make sure you make a note to drop by over the next few weeks for the big launch party!

Now let me warn you–the blog isn’t finished yet, so it may have a few snags to work out and there may be some odd links or things that haven’t been caught yet by my esteemed team of Beta Babes. If you find something that is out of whack, please let me know! You’ll be a Babe and my new BFF.

I think the thing I love the most about this new website is the whimsical and fun design. A good friend looked it over a couple of weeks ago and exclaimed, “It looks just like you!” No, I don’t run around with flowers and hearts pasted all over me, but I am told by good, trusted friends (the ones who don’t owe me money) that I am fun to be around. So I guess that makes me a metaphorical flowers and hearts sort of gal. I also think the design fits with the type of books I write–fun, playful Regencies, infused with humor. Jane Austen for hip set. And while at times I do get serious, in those moments I can’t help sticking some metaphorical rubber chicken in a scene to get a laugh. If this new site makes you smile–then it has accomplished what I always hope to do when I write my stories.

But the most important goal I had when I asked Waxcreative to redesign my site, was to find more ways to stay connected with readers, other writers, booksellers and librarians, and to give you outlets to write me directly (through blog comments or the Contact page) or to easily find my online or real time Events. As you can see–I am actually venturing out into the big, big world this Fall, so if you can, drop by one of the signings or conferences and say “Hello.”

So tell me (since I wanted to hear from you!), how do you like the new site?

    It’s charming and easy to read, both really important. I’ll dig through everything later today and let you know if I hit any snags. πŸ™‚

    Had a quick look around just now and like what I see. Of course, I check your site several times a month just to see what, if anything is different, added, etc. I’ll be back….

    As you know, I think the new site is very beautiful! And I think it suits you very well. It has a warm feel to it too, with a girlie touch hehe.

    Emily and her team do wonderful work!

    Well, I’ve dug through some more and can’t find anything wrong. Looks like they did a bang-up job! (Of course, I’ll feel foolish if something is wrong and I’ve just blithely skipped past it…)

    I’ve been really busy today, but I’ll take my small list and go over and see if the things I had mentioned were changed. Of course, one is obviously changed. I asked after the blog and sure enough, it’s changed πŸ˜€

    I love the colors and the watercolor feel to the design. Contrasting with that is the modern font look. Emily and her team do such beautiful work!!

    Thanks all! It’s always validating to see/hear people praise our work. The new ElizabethBoyle.com has been a wonderfully challenging and rewarding project. But we’re not quite done. Watch this space… πŸ™‚

    p.s. oh and in case I am the 300th poster, please skip me over to win Candice’s book. I just can’t wait. I am going to her book release event this evening in San Francisco (Stonebridge Mall Borders, 5-7) and grabbing my copy. Thanks!

    p.p.s. Of course I should have read the prize info better. Sorry. NO, ELIZABETH IS NOT GIVING AWAY CANDICE’S NEW BOOK! But it’s a great blog-contest with a cool prize (that I should still be skipped over for — I don’t think I qualify anyway — bummer). Have a great weekend everyone!

    Emily, what fun! You get to get a signed book from Candice. And then get to spend your first night with the delicious Rochdale. πŸ™‚

    Emily, you have done an amazing job with Elizabeth’s site!

    Will you be including a “how we did it” page like you did with Eloisa’s website?

    Elizabeth (and Emily, of course),
    The site is beautiful and, as someone noted, a perfect reflection of Elizabeth. I can’t wait to see what else you have up your sleeve that you keep hinting at!

    Wow, all!! Thanks for dropping by. I’m hoping to have the launch party very soon! And isn’t it fun? I really wanted a site where people felt welcome, felt a bit of whimsy and wanted to come back and chat here at the blog. Looks like it is working! Welcome all!!!
