The new website is up! The new blog is being hosted at the website, and it's LOVELY! (I can say that because I have no credit whatsoever for the fabulous design.) Let's clear up a few housekeeping details:
*If you're having trouble accessing the new website, it's because the old bookmarks will take you back HERE. You have to type in www.deannaraybourn.com to see the new site.
*There are still one or two details to tweak--mostly ME figuring out how to log in to write my new blog!--but once those are taken care of, the blog will be there, not here. You'll want to reset your bookmarks accordingly. You can also subscribe to the new blog's feed. It is entirely possible that this archive will disappear soon, but I'm still making inquiries on that one...
*And in response to the numerous inquiries I've had, nope, I'm afraid the image on the homepage is NOT me. (But thanks for thinking it might be!) Most of the photographs on the website are the handiwork of an extremely talented Polish photographer. I'll be posting links to her work so you can see the rest of her magic.
Now, as to the REST of this weekend, it was phenomenal! Nora Roberts was supremely gracious, and every member of the bookstore staff was unfailingly kind and helpful. I was also lucky enough to meet Mariah Stewart and Donna Kauffman and an astonishing number of readers. We signed for more than four hours!! I met loads of fantastic people and had an amazing time, and HUGE thanks to everyone who made the weekend such a blast. I'll have more details soon, but I'm writing this Sunday evening and I wanted to make sure to hit the high points!
And if the weekend wasn't fantastic enough, we arrived home this afternoon to SNOW! It only lasted about a quarter of an hour, but the flakes were the fattest I've ever seen--the size of cotton balls. So, I've finally gotten my snowfall, the perfect end to a seriously fantastic weekend.
