Another New Site

So if you are reading this from the new HarperCollins microsites, then you are a complete hipster and don’t need me to tell you what’s cool and hot. But if you found this the usual way, through my blog, then you’ve got to hop over and take a look at the Elizabeth Boyle microsite. Cool huh? I spent way too much time peaking into my fellow authors likes, favorite books, upcoming books and news bits. Believe me–this could get really addictive–in a fun, non caloric way.

So hopefully after you’ve spent most of the morning not working effectively using your time to look at all these fun sites, I hope you at least noticed the Browse Inside widgets on every author’s pages, and which I’ve installed over to the right=>=>=> in the sidebar so you can see what they look like. Okay, I wanted to see how easy they were to install in my sidebar. Hmmm. Cut. Paste. Oh, yeah, this is my kind of computer programming.

Here’s the really cool part–anyone can have that widget. You can cut and paste the code and have it on your site to give your friends and fellow readers a chance to browse around inside your newest favorite romance. Hopefully it will be Love Letters from a Duke, but if it isn’t, you might find another favorite from one of my fellow Avon historical authors listed down below and include it on your site. The idea being it gives you added content for your blog readers, on your MySpace page or alongside a review. And heck, it’s fun and easy. And no calories involved.


Hopefully all my blathering about complex computer programming (remember: Cut. Paste.) hasn’t put you to sleep, but if it has you feeling drowsy, because after all Cut. Paste. is a lot of work on a Wednesday, this will wake you back up.

Just to show you how easy it is, I’m offering an incentive to try it out–the first 20 people who include this widget on their site will receive a free autographed book from yours truly. One of my backlist–you can pick from what I have in stock–will come to you once I’ve had a chance to take a look and make sure you’ve prominently displayed the Browse Inside widget to Love Letters from a Duke on your blog, website, review pages or MySpace page. So grab that code, launch it and let me know.

And if you like having it in your sidebar, consider another historical treasure from:

Victoria Alexander
Gayle Callen
Anna Campbell
Kathryn Caskie
Jacquie D’Alessandro
Suzanne Enoch
Laura Lee Guhrke
Lorraine Heath
Eloisa James
Sophie Jordan
Stephanie Laurens
Julie Anne Long
Margo Maguire
Anne Mallory
Cathy Maxwell
Teresa Medeiros
Sophia Nash
Jenna Petersen
Julia Quinn
Kathryn Smith
Melody Thomas

If anything, it is just fun to say to your friends, “I have a new widget on my site.” They’ll think you’re really cool, a hipster, or at the very least possibly quite rich from all your years of computer programming. Cut. Paste.

Did you try it out? What book can I send you??

    Oh my gosh, Elizabeth! I just popped over to see your new microsite. I am in no way a hipster.
    The first thing I saw was your favorite desert-island book. I thought I was the only person in the world who thought “The Blue Castle” is the most perfect love story ever written. I’ve read it so many times, I had to order a new copy this year. I’ve always wanted to visit that island. Even more than I wanted to visit Anne’s Green Gables.
    I’ve enjoyed all of L.M.M.’s books. “Jane of Lantern Hill” is another favorite. I did’t come to these books and this author as a child or even young adult. I was in my 50’s and watched the A&E series of “Anne of Green Gables” before I ever began to read her. Silly me.

    BTW, I enjoyed “Love Letters from a Duke” very much and it’s now resting in my keeper shelves.

    Happy Autumn.

    Verrrrry cute microsite. It was great fun to read your list of favs. Unfortunately, I don’t have a spot to display your widget, but I love widgets, because they’re so useful. Amazon has had them for months, glad to see HC do the same now.

    I saw some of these! Very nice pages!!

    Julie Anne Long told me about them the other night and I browsed a few.

    The widget is over at Romantic Inks where it can get max exposure! Link: http://romanticinks.com/blog

    I’ve been wanting to add something like that to the site for some time…just haven’t done it, until now that is.

    Hey, all you are fantastic. And you were presented yesterday to the CEO of HarperCollins as examples of the awesome readers romance authors brag about. Thanks for helping. And keep those widgets going–because I still have more books. And to those of you who already put up a widget–your book is coming!

    Elizbo, I posted your widget over on my blog site at http://keirasoleore.blogspot.com. I’m now in the process of adding widgets for some of my other favs. You’ve given me the impetus to update my blog regularly, at least once a week.
