My new website is live!

To celebrate, the first chapter of GIVE UP THE GHOST is available for everyone to read. So if you've been wanting to take a look inside the book, now you can!

You can also read about the real life settings I drew on when writing GHOST, listen to the unofficial soundtrack, and take the GIVE UP THE GHOST character quiz.

Soon to come: giveaways, free short stories, deleted scenes, book trailer, and more...

Yay Megan! It looks great - I love the tree and font (and you were really cute as a kiddo!). You sure offer a lot of stuff for people to explore, too.

I noticed that your color scheme matches your book cover. Was that intentional? How did you choose colors when you created the site? My web besigner asked me if I wanted to use my book cover as a guide for colors and such, but since I don't HAVE a published book that wasn't even an option. However, I thought, what about when the second novel comes out? (see how optimistic I am?) I don't want my whole website built around my first book. Any thoughts on that?

Actually, I started working on the new site design before I saw the book cover--I just happen to like blue-green a lot. :) It was a nice coincidence that it fit the cover.

I don't think I'd suggest designing an entire author site around one book's cover. I know some people make a separate site just for each book, and that works great. But if the site's supposed to feature all your books (and of course you hope there will be a second, and more after!) then it makes more sense to me to either have something that suits the tone of your work/genre in general.

Oh, I love it! In fact, I'm keeping a note of it to add to my list of websites to be inspired by when (positive thinking!!) I someday need an author website. :)

I took the quiz, too - apparently, I am Tim Reed.

I just read the first chapter of GIVE UP THE GHOST and I *love* it! I can't wait to read more!

The cover is just fabulous - you must be soooo happy with it. That is the kind of book that screams to be taken home with me when I'm in a bookstore. :o)

Yay! I'm so glad to hear you like the first chapter and the cover! I *am* really happy with it--even more so with the positive response it's been getting from everyone else! :D
