New Look for a New Year!

Quite a lot has been happening around here the last few months. As you’re probably already noticing, I’ve switched Wordplay over to Blogger, mostly because of its multiple networking options. But I’m also excited about the new look and the new features, including a list of recommended writing books (which I’ll be updating whenever I discover a new gem) and a blogroll. If you’re not on the blogroll, shoot me a comment; I’d love to trade links!

My main website has also undergone a complete overhaul. I’ve added a page of with my favorite writing links and several of my short stories. I would like to establish a base of comments and ratings for the stories, so please drop by and give the stories a read!

In other news, Lord willing, I will be sending Behold the Dawn, my Third Crusade novel, into pre-publication within the month. I’m very excited about this and hope to see it in print by October. Your prayers are appreciated throughout this process, and I’ll post the occasional update along with my usual weekly posts on writing.

As always, thanks for reading!

    I love the new look, too.

    Keep me posted, okay?


  2. Thanks, Linda. Don’t worry, you’ll be the first to know about any interesting developments!

  3. Just had to take a look at your new space–looks good.

  4. Looks fantastic, thanks for linking my blogs, I’ve updated your link. I’ve been going to comment before, especially on the post on Originality, but I couldn’t really think of anything original to say. :>)

  5. Thanks for stopping by, both of you!

    And, Walk, you made me laugh…

  6. Hey Katie, the “new look” is great!! It’ll take a little getting used to though, and I honestly think the old format was easier to read.

    But anyway, terrific job, I really like the banner!!

  7. Thanks for stopping by. I love design, so I had a lot of fun putting the new blog together. Any suggestions on improvement are always appreciated!

  8. Love the new look! A new look for a new year, a new year for tons of new blog posts.

  9. A ton of new blog posts… that’s the plan anyway! I’ve been running Wordplay for just over a year now, and it’s been a great experience so far.

  10. Katie dear, I am SOOOOO excited about Behold the Dawn!!!!! Let me know when you start taking pre-orders :)!! Love you!

  11. Information on ordering will be posted closer to the publication date.
