I figured it was time for a change on this blog because, after all, when you have deadlines looming and scads of work that needs to be done, the thing all responsible writers and editors do is decide to change the look of their blogs…right? Right?
Well anyway, that’s what I did 🙂
The image is one I licensed from i-stockphoto. It’s a vector image by -M-I-S-H-A-, an artist whose work I often drool over. In this case I only had to make a few minor changes to make it work, which is good, because as I’ve said before, I am not a graphic designer LOL The layout is courtesy of Area 381.
I like the new layout, but it’s going to take some getting used to, I think. I’d be interested in hearing what you think, too 🙂 In the meantime, I’m going to iron out the bumps and then get back to work on Niteblade — the new issue comes out very soon. 🙂
The Dark Phantom Review is a great little blog that does book reviews, author interviews and editor reviews. In addition, they also have articles and short fiction. It’s run by Mayra Calvani, who is a talented writer. Recently I was honored to be interviewed by The Dark Phantom Review, and the interview is live now.
Please check it out. I’d love to hear what you think, either here or on The Dark Phantom Review’s blog. Personally I think I need to work on my skills as an interviewee LoL It’s just one more thing to add to the list of skills this magazine has inspired/required me to develop 🙂
Niteblade and I are nominated in a few categories and if you feel like voting for us, yay, if not, no big. However, I would ask that each of you consider voting for Marge Simon’s cover art for the December issue of Niteblade. Marge is a wonderful woman and a talented artist who does the cover art and story illustrations for Niteblade for far less money than she deserves. You can see her work and vote for her here –> http://www.critters.org/predpoll/zineart.shtml You will need to enter your email address to vote in order to prevent bot votes, but you won’t get spammed or have it sold anywhere.
Thank you in advance to everyone who votes 🙂
p.s. When I nominated Marge I screwed up the first time, so there are two occurances of her name there — please vote for the one where the picture link actually works 😉
p.p.s. I apologize if you’ve read me making a similar plea elsewhere, I just want Marge to get as many votes as I can LOL
